Implications - The marriage of menswear to more old-school, feminine styles and prints is a perfect example of low-scale androgyny. Though stylish women are generally open to androgynous fashion, men seem to have more trouble. Thus, lower degrees of androgyny must be incorporated in small doses, such as shoes with a less-masculine prints or heavily embellished cuff links.
