48 Androgynous Fashions

From Boys With Lipstick to Gender-Bending Siblings

— August 17, 2009 — Celebs
There is definitely something exciting about gender-bending fashions. Whether it’s Chloe Sevigny designing a line that is completely gender versatile or making women more hard-edged and men a little soft-edged for an editorial shoot, playing around with traditional gender roles is not only interesting, it’s fashionable too.

Check out 18 of Trend Hunter’s top examples of androgynous style in the gallery above!

Implications - The fashion world has collectively embraced androgyny and androgynous themes for their inclusive yet eye-catching nature. These examples show how androgyny has been used in fashion collections and editorial photo shoots. Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by infusing their marketing materials and ad campaigns with androgynous themes.
