From chunky military boots, bold checks and faux leather detailing to cami cropped tops worn with tartan skirts – 90s post grunge is back for AW13 whether you love it or hate it! A bit of a Marmite trend for some, there are still ways to incorporate it into your wardrobe without looking like Nirvana’s biggest fan (…which, to be fair – we think is okay!). Mix and match our favourite post grunge picks and let us know your must-wanted pieces by tweeting @nextofficial.

The Biker Jacket £60
This red check biker jacket with leather look sleeves is made complete with scatterings of zips and a stylish asymmetric fastening. Already with a couple of 5 star customer reviews, this jacket is a perfect transitional piece that could be worn with skinny jeans or layered over a black day dress.

The Checked Sweater £30
Available in red and white, we’re loving this cosy sweater for the coming season. Red is a HUGE colour trend for AW13 which makes this knit the ULTIMATE style staple. We’ll be wearing ours with a simple pair of skinny black coated jeans, but if you’re looking for something for something ‘more’, there’s a dress version of the jumper… feast your eyes here.

The Leather Look Top £22
The perfect piece for those who aren’t entirely taken by the grunge trend just yet – this black on black or black and metallic top adds a touch of pleather to your casual look. Add some texture to the look by teaming it with these charcoal slim joggers!

The Cut Out Biker Boots £65
If you invest in only one item from this trend, it HAS to be these black biker boots with hefty buckles and cut out detailing. With a sturdy heel height of 6cm, these bad boys will look seriously cool worn with either ankle socks or tights to bring instant edge to any outfit.

The Block Heel Lace-Ups £45
If lace up is more your thing, you’ll fall head over heels with these ox blood cleat lace-up boots. Grunge up your girliest floral tea dress in a pair of these 9cm block heel beauties – along with a leather jacket and if you’re feeling particularly brave, a bowler hat!

The Tartan Skirt £28
There’s definitely a 90’s Clueless/Avril Lavigne vibe about this tartan skirt matched with our cropped lace cami crop (£22). For a more subtle look, wear the kilt with a grey slub top and denim jacket – or style the lace Lipsy top with a high waisted pair of blue jeans and slingbacks.

The Chunky Ring £7
With a few grungey pieces in the AW13 jewellery collection, this gunmetal grey ring would be perfect for adding a touch of rock chick to your accessory stand.
