I’ve always been a fan of the female body silhouette and fancy anything that compliments my figure, but recently I find myself blurring the lines by wearing gender neutral styles and tones. It’s strange, I no longer mind buying clothes that are sizes up my normal fit, and no longer feel self-conscious about wearing loosely fitted pants. Somehow flat hipped jeans and shapeless dresses have sneaked their way into my wardrobe. Perhaps it’s an age thing, or perhaps it’s another form of confidence.
As street style continues to prevail in the market, it’s clear that although the gender neutrals reflect designers’ curiosity, they aren’t accidents – they’ve pretty much dominated the conversation. The best part is that it works both ways, as I shop in men’s section, I also see men shop in women’s. It takes some open minds, but it seems function and individuality are now held in higher regards than an uniform idea of what’s conventionally appropriate. As some industry insiders put it, it’s more evolutionary than revolutionary, the blurred lines is a result of our changing attitude and culture, we’re just becoming more relaxed about it all.
Hope I inspired you to mix some neutrals tones and pick out some unconventional pieces. Try something new, it may bring you pleasant surprises 🙂 thanks for reading lovelies, stay gorgeous.
