    This gritty grunge revival manifested itself in several fall runways, such as Saint Laurent and BCBGMaxazria, but celebs like Diane Kruger and Miley Cyrus have already tapped into their inner Angela Chase (the flannel-wearing main character played by Claire Danes in My So-Called Life) for summer. This low-maintenance look comes with an insouciant attitude and feels seasonally appropriate now, so embrace your inner subversive stylephile and try it today. Click through our slideshow to get inspired by these grunge-inspired ensembles now.

    Rihanna

    Rihanna’s look is a cross between two popular ‘90s looks, combining both grunge elements (Superbia’s S Beanie ($15) and overalls worn with the straps down) and hip-hop-inspired pieces (Trapstar’s TS Team Raglan ($61) and Nike’s Air Jordan Retro 93 Sneakers ($130)). Of course, she adds an on-trend pair of Roberto Cavalli Lohifushi Retro Cat’s-Eye Sunglasses ($295) as well.

    Roberts’ outfit—consisting of a Levi’s flannel shirt, Abbot + Main t-shirt, Rag & Bone ripped jeans, and Vivienne Westwood denim jacket—looks like it was plucked straight from Kurt Cobain’s own closet.
