There are a number of reasons why Twilight was so iconic. Aside from the cinematic masterpiece that is the baseball scene, the first Twilight film gave viewers a source of fashion inspo in the form of Ashley Greene’s Alice, whose style is making a new resurgence on TikTok as fairy grunge takes over.
Several users are picking out earth-toned pieces that look very similar to some of the clothing that the quirky vampire would wear:

What is fairy grunge?
The trend is a blend of fairycore and grunge aesthetics. It involves edgy pieces paired with tulle skirts and sheer scarves and chunky jewellery. Grandpa cardigans are essential, and so is dark nail polish and a pair of beat-up sneakers or combat boots.

According to Teen Vogue, the grunge fairycore looks involve clothing and accessories that are bought second hand or upcycled, so if you’re into thrifting and avoiding fast fashion, this trend might be a perfect fit for you.
If you’re looking to try this new trend, pull out your grungy basics and get thrifting. If you’re into the aesthetics of the trend but don’t care much for switching up your outfits, you can also try changing up your hair with some safety pins to give your look some extra edge:
@sydn3yjoy If anyone would be so kind as to duet this with different hair types to make this more inclusive I’d deeply appreciate it. 🖤 #fairygrunge #fairygrungeaesthetic #fairygrungehairinspo ♬ Dark Beach – Pastel Ghost
