Androgyny in fashion can be described as that moment when you don’t know if you want to dress like a boy or a girl. Just kidding.
Androgyny as a concept (aka mass confusion) goes back in time to when Zeus was cool and wearing lush green leaves was couture. Before fashion, ambiguity in gender was a more of a serious concern. People experienced changes in behavior and sexual preferences which not only affected society but gave you chillers down your spine explaining your ‘mixed’ taste to your family.
However, times have changed and so have we. We now think telling Facebook is an easier task than confronting your loved ones. It also makes sense to do this in front of a couple of hundred strangers who don’t care about your existence and self high five about it.
Coming back to androgyny in fashion, most people think it’s about wearing boxers or the entire spectrum of colors on yourself. Please don’t do the mistake of taking yourself seriously when you do that.
Dedicated to everyone who fears the disgrace of rejection, here is a short compilation of five important measures you can take to be androgynous in fashion without losing the respect of family and friends.
1) Sport a Mustache
Proven most effective and generated maximum responses. However, sport a mustache only if you look like that.
2) Challenge Mother Nature
I don’t know what you would have to perform on your body to look this legit but this step has proven most successful. So they say.
3) Lose the hair
You just have to forget about your lovely long hair. Forget about styles you try with your friends or your boyfriend going crazy about your tresses like the movies. Basically, piss people off.
4) Sport the Boyfriend Pants
Someone has to be a total genius to have come up with a super loose fit and blame it all on the guy you date. It looks way too cool on Katie Holmes. Don’t forget to check the mirror once though. To be sure.
5) The Unexplainable Photograph
You need one photograph (for your social media image of course) that leaves people confused out of their minds about your Identity. And brain.
