Fashion's the perfect outlet for men and women to express themselves however they please, and the industry's taking steps to celebrate such expression. Recently, Jaden Smith, who Teen Vogue calls the face of gender-fluid fashion, blew us away on the cover of Nylon magazine — and we can't wait to see more.
"I'm going to keep doing the same things—I'm going to keep doing more things. I'm going to take most of the blows for my fellow MSFTS. So, you know, in five years when a kid goes to school wearing a skirt, he won't get beat up and kids won't get mad at him. It just doesn't matter. I'm taking the brunt of it so that later on, my kids and the next generations of kids will all think that certain things are normal that weren't expected before my time."
In celebration of gender fluidity making waves in the fashion world, and New York Fashion Week: Men's Spring/Summer 2017 shows kicking off next week, we've put together some menswear-inspired looks for women who like to rock a fem style with a masc flair.
So whether you love the comfortable fit of a good boyfriend jean or street style shots from Pitti Uomo spark your imagination, we've got you covered with multiple looks for the summer.
This first outfit is inspired by street style at this year's Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy. To get the look, rock a green military jacket with camo shorts and simple accessories, like a black Converse sneakers. Add a girly touch with these round, gold sunglasses.
This next look is all about the boyfriend jean with a few ultra-feminine accessories, like an off-the-shoulder crop top and glamorous Eleanor Kalle earrings.
Inspired by Junli's S/S 17 show in Milan this year, this next look focuses on a sleeveless blazer with black pants and minimal accessories you can tweak to make your own.
This next ensemble's got that "'borrowed-from-the-boyfriend' feel" with a Topshop oversized shirt dress, white kicks, and dark sunnies. It's the perfect combination of comfort and trend.
This time, literally steal this look from your man's closet. We've chosen a striped men's t-shirt and paired it with a pair of denim shorts, flats, and sunglasses for a casual daytime look.
