FAB Trends: Androgynous Style & Gender Fluidity In Fashion – See Tips + Style Cues

Capture3

Fashion, like every other form of art, is a method of expression. As a follower of fashion, it’s nice to be up-to-date with trends and making them your own. Lately, we’ve noticed several designers and street style gurus blurring the lines between feminine and masculine with androgynous style clothing .

Nigerian fashion labels like Orange Culture and Kenneth Ize or some outfits from Yohji Yamamoto at the RTW Spring 2015 are examples of brands that have embraced this style recently.

The feminine influence over menswear has reached covetable new extremes with wrap skirts and culturally influenced outfits and Saint Laurent’s skin-tight trousers, layered necklaces and floaty Sixties scarves verge on sassy. It’s not just Boyfriend Jackets anymore. The androgynous look that some people pull off perfectly gives others a hard time making the clothing look ill-fitting.

Equally popular, if less disheveled, is JW Anderson’s arty boy/girl style. His un-gendered designs made a double appearance during the recent run of menswear shows and their gender almost impossible to call.

The ultimate guide to unisex dressing, however, came from Mrs Prada, who delivered a high fashion version of “his ‘n’ hers” – Fifties denim cuts and workaday sports jackets worn in sequence by first male, then female models.

There’s never been a better time to borrow from the boys or girls. Take your style cues here:
