We’re seeing a resurgence of slouchy beanies, combat boots and dirty-hued flannel as the ’90s makes its comeback for fall 2013. The marriage of grunge and hip-hop puts a twist on an old favorite, with graffiti prints paired with combat boots at Vivienne Tam, or baseball caps with crop tops and baggy leather pants at Herve Leger (that Left Eye would have totally worn). Think of it as if Aaliyah and Kurt Cobain had a fashion lovechild, as illustrated by Rihanna‘s spring collection for River Island featuring tie-dye jumpsuits and midriff-baring sweaters. The best examples of the merger occurs in pieces that are traditionally grunge (an oxymoron?) that are also done in hip-hop-esque silhouettes, like the high-waisted plaid suspenders at Jeremy Scott. Are you as psyched about this trend as we are? Think about it — we might even get to say “rad” un-ironically again.

Catch up on all the fall 2013 fashion week trends, or see what’s in store for spring, like barely-there beauty looks and matching printed shorts sets.
