Denim items are known for its casual feel, but the stylish details like studs, spikes, or even distressed and faded styles can make it grunge-friendly ensembles. For a more expressive style, opt for denim jackets, shorts, and jeans in high contrast washes, or acid-washed styles.

Leather is the edgiest textile you may go for, but patent leather and rough leather are the ones that can complement your grunge look. The glossy and shiny finish of a patent leather can make your simple jacket or trousers look outstanding, while the rough finish of leather can channel your edgy and tough girl vibe. Look for biker or motorcycle jackets perfect for your outfit that can be versatile enough to put on and take off whenever you wish.
