Demi Lovato's Instagram Guide For Going '90s Grunge, From Flannel To Dresses-With-Boots

Demi Lovato is a '90s kid… literally. The singer and actress, born in 1992, is a child of the era, defined by grunge music and more flannel, baggy jeans, and dresses with chunky boots than you can imagine. The '90s are totally back right now, from the, uh, resurgence of Surge soda to the cultural renaissance of shows like Friends to all the plaid that's oh-so-trendy this fall. Lovato is on tour and while she is known for her rocker chick style, featuring lots of black, glossy leather, studs, and heels, she has been borrowing from a decidedly '90s era influence as of late.

If you want to resurrect the edgiest part of the '90s, at least in your wardrobe, you can follow the grunge guide that is Demi Lovato's Instagram account. Click through for some of her best tips.

The Grunge Uniform: Ripped Jeans And Flannel

Lovato nailed the grunge uniform here in an outfit that could have been assembled at Gadzooks or Contempo Casuals — ’member them? Ripped jeans are essential. The boyfriend cut is popular again in 2014, making this look super easy to recreate. So is a flannel shirt, with bonus points for wearing it tied around her waist. The boots are also Grunge Fashion 101, but the floral top keeps it super feminine.

Riot Grrrl Redux With A Dress And Boots

Riot Grrrl was a huge movement in the ’90s, both idealistically and image-wise. Lovato did her own salute with this cute ensemble that’s quintessential Riot Grrrl… and therefore thoroughly ’90s. A short, floral dress paired with clunky, chunky, and masculine boots conjures up memories of Courtney Love. The mix of tough and cute is always a winning style contrast.

Blossom Anyone?

The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik, who is unhappy with Ariana Grande’s lingerie-style of dress, pranced around as the titular character in ’90s sitcom Blossom. Don’t really remember the show? Well, Lovato’s look here is totes inspired by the quirky Blossom Russo, who wore long, floral dresses and lots of fedora hats. Like so.

Get Loose

Lovato’s loose, embellished mini dress here was roomy and cute, and it was a slightly modernized version of the accessorized minis that were sooo '90s.

Urban'90s Chic, Gwen Stefani-Style

This promo image from Lovato’s tour is totally inspired by Gwen Stefani’s athletic aesthetic from No Doubt tours in the ’90s. Stefani often bore her midriff with fancy exercise-wear and sporty ensembles. Lovato’s look here is beyond influenced by Stefani, right down to the rosy red lips.
