I think the difference is that emo is intended to be a trend (despite what some may say...), whereas grunge evolved into a trend?

Grunge was like the anti-fashion, it was about not caring what you wore and what society thought of it. Emo is far more contrived.

I like how this incaration of grunge is a lot less silly than the 90s version. Remeber extra long/tall beanies? Remember black and white stripped (and other "crazy" patterned) knee-highs? Remember drawing all over your shoes with a sharpie? There was something very screwball about its particular brand of anti-fashion fashion. I think today's version retains the good parts-- utility, weather-consciousness, an alternative sense of the body, comfort-- without the cheese. (Not that I'm adverse to whimsy. In fact, I think MJ does whimsy better than anyone out there.)

i go to nyu and all the stupid kids from LA wear flannel, fedoras, old nikes, vintage dresses, wayfarers and dont wash their hair but then they include chanel and balenciaga bags, louboutin heels and ridiculous attitudes. they also act like they are gangsters which is the most pathetic.

Grunge is creeping back
after several seasons of extreme volume and then carefully tailored vintage-inspired dress, the fashion world seems to be taking key elements and mixing them up into what can best be described as the creeping back of 1990's famous 'GRUNGE".

From the hipsters, comes the revival of the plaid shirt and jacket. The classic Rayban Wayfarer's are back with avengance in streetstyle....chunky shoes, leggings, babydoll dresses, doc martens, huge chunky knits and inspiring streestyle....and the mix match layering that so defined the style is back.

we have threads here on the specific shoes and glasses and whatnot that are part of the GRUNGE movement....but nothing yet that combines them all in referance to that early 1990's trend that made Marc Jaocbs one of the most loved and most hated younge designers of his time....

*edit...more pics to come....my photobucket account isn't uploading pics...

softgrey~ the way im interpretting the 'noveau' grunge, is the layering look from the 1990's, (with the flannels, the plaids, the doc martens, the baby doll dresses, the leggings, striped shirts, wild prints, raybans, leggings, chunky knits and mary jane style shoes...) without the baggy jeans/holes/dirty look the original 'grungers' had. The new grunge is more streamline, a bit more body concious, and mixes things in as a homage to the 1990's.

i think lydia's regular costumes in the film could be considered goth, but the school outfit is kinda grunge IMO. i was trying to corelate the plaid and dr. martens....
