    The 'grunge look' meant wearing dark colors. Colors that were popular were black and white, gray, forest green, brown and indigo.Hair was usually worn natural and appeared unkempt. Details were often sported in longer hair such as tiny braids, beads or dread locks.Flannel shirts were probably the staple item of the grunge era. They were worn by girls and guys alike. They were worn in many ways, buttoned up the front, open in front, or tied around the waist.Jeans were often stonewashed and baggy. Large and chunky shoes were popular. Work boots were favored by men and women alike. Obviously this sort of look did not suit Stefan!
    "Remember, Stefan, it's important to stay away from fads." means that Stefan should not wear clothes that are only fashionable for a short time.
