Grungy glam ft. ASOS and Zara

In the past, I’ve struggled to give an answer when people ask me what my style is. Then, as I was scrolling through my Instagram one day, I realised. My style is minimal or floral in spring/summer and grungy glam in autumn/winter.

Although I really like minimal and floral looks, I’d say that I’m most comfortable in grungy glam outfits. I feel like they’re the most ‘me’. Having said that, I feel ‘me’ in minimal outfits or florals too.

But anyway, I think I love grungy glam because it’s so easy to wear and looks effortlessly cool. I get to wear my favourite fabrics; leather and lace. It also includes a lot of key black pieces to toughen things up.

Plus, it’s ideal because you don’t have to look too pristine either. It doesn’t matter if my boots are worn-in and my hair is a little messy – it all adds to the look!

This outfit is a perfect example of my grungy glam style. I bought the dress from ASOS a few months ago. It was shapeless when I unwrapped it from the box but fortunately, it looked so much better on!

I quite like the length too. It’s longer than I used to wear but as I get older, I much prefer looser, knee-length dresses. They feel more sophisticated than the short and tight dresses from my early twenties!

The jacket is a trusty number from Zara. I’ve got a few leather jackets but I try to save this one for ‘best’ as it’s smarter than the other ones I have. It’s more fitted and I try not to wear bulky jumpers underneath so I don’t stretch it.

As for the boots, they’re old and I’ve worn them a million times before but they’re so hard to resist! The chunky heel, quilted front and buckle design gives any outfit an edge.

How would you describe your style?
