#7. Grunge shoes

You cannot forget about your feet to create the perfect grunge outfit. Grunge shoes are enormous, bulky and flat so you do not want to spoil the look with high heels. Instead, embrace combat boots, flatform sandals, canvas trainers, Dr Martens and creepers.

#7. Grunge hair and makeup

Just like any other outfit, we cannot forget about grunge hairstyles and grunge makeup to finish up the look. For grunge hair, it looks best when it is all messy and a little greasy. If you are not a big fun of wavy hair, go for messy double buns and you can also try unique hair colors or have your stylist add baby bangs or an undercut. For grunge makeup, try nude makeup or apply it heavily for a strong statement style. To complement the look, go for thick, smudged eyeliner and eye lashings of mascara.
