Sometimes, dressing up is simply about being who you are, and less about being in the men’s or women’s department. An androgynous look might mean playing down your biological gender, like Katharine Hepburn, one of the first women to start wearing trousers, or playing up both feminine and masculine sides like the one and only David Bowie, or simply being ambiguous about it, like Andrej Pejic who went from modelling menswear to womenswear.
What’s the reason to look androgynous? From self identity to technological influences to imaginations for the future, there’s a different story for everyone. Here are a few ways to look at androgynous fashion.
Just as pants and bowler hats have become acceptable on women, our garments may continue to evolve and settle down in the other gender’s department. Haven’t you seen tunics for guys getting more popular?
“Every morning is different—some days I feel androgynous, others I go for a bold look.” Samantha Urbani, one of the faces of Milk Makeup, points out it’s okay to feel somewhat fluid, whether in our gender identity or other identities.
A simple lifestyle
Perhaps it boils down to a longing for simplicity rather than too many options, as well as values and functions rather than appearance. Innovative and natural materials are both driving a minimalistic (sometimes genderless) look in futuristic fashion, too.
Aesthetics without boundaries
Lace is for girls, boring clothes are for men—says who? Anyone can use patterns, shapes and colors to create art and speak up! Remember how Kurt Cobain rocked a dress?
