Grunge is back in a big way for Autumn Winter 2013. Even if you didn’t rock plaid shirts and ripped denims back in the ’80s and ’90s, you can still ride on the grunge bandwagon the second time round.

Find black combat boots too harsh? These light pink boots from Timberland are still stomp-worthy with a girlie – but not saccharine sweet – edge. As with all Timberland footwear, these pastel boots also score high in practicality, your feet will be kept dry in the event of a flash thunderstorm thanks to the seam-sealed waterproof construction and with the clever anti-fatigue midsole and flexible forefoot, your feet will stay comfy all day long.  

To pass off as a current version of ‘90s MTV icon Daria (remember her?), pair the boots with a pleated skirt and cardigan – or channel Claire Danes in My So-Called Life in a more dainty floral dress. For an easy but model-off-duty-worthy look, try an oversized sweater with a pair of skinny jeans tucked into the boots.

Available at the Raffles City and Vivocity Timberland outlets.
