Androgyny: the Best of Both Fashion Worlds

Girly-girl looks are great, but if you want a crisp, structured style, then the androgynous look is more up your alley. This fusion of flirty feminine fashion and menswear style is a new and refreshing way to hit the streets. Covet this high-fashion look by filling your closets with these androgynous style pieces:


Keep warm and androgynous this winter season by layering with a boxy blazer. Wear this with a plain white top and boyfriend jeans (coming up next) for an alluring androgynous look.

Boyfriend Jeans

True to its’ name, a good pair of boyfriend jeans can help you achieve the masculine look. Not only are they fashionable, they are very comfy as well. Wear these jeans with a striking stiletto for the perfect balance of male and female fashion elements.

Silk Button-Down Blouses

A silk button-down blouse offers the ultimate fashion convergence, with its delicate material and tailored structure. For casual looks, wear this with boyfriend jeans. For a more formal, androgynous look, pair it with a form-fitting pencil skirt.

Masculine Hat

Add a mannish flair to your style by topping your look with a masculine hat. Ranch hats and beanies are just some of great finishing touches to your androgynous look.

Chunky Men’s Watch

Your dad or boyfriend’s big-face watch is a vital accessory for the androgynous look. But in the event that they do not let you borrow their expensive watches, you can still create the style by purchasing men’s watch-inspired pieces, such as those of Michael Kors and Fossil. Pick big-face watches in gold or silver and you are good to go.

Structured Bag

Keep your necessities in true androgynous style with a structured bag. An expensive example of a structured purse is a Hermes Birkin bag, while a mid-range handbag is Michael Kors’ Hamilton Bag. If these purses are too much for your budget, there are good tailored bags from Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters.

Oxford Shoes

It can be said that Annie Hall was the movie that helped popularize the androgynous look. Emulate actress Diane Keaton’s look in this film by investing in a good pair of Oxfords. This is a great masculinizing item, especially if you plan on wearing girly or frilly frocks.
