At first glance you may think that we have gone mad. Unisex style? By that we mean, clothes that look as good on a man as they do on a woman. The pieces that fit this bill are few and far between. But, there is enough of them out there for unisex pieces to now be big business.
The fashion trend for gender-neutral and androgyny has never been bigger. Take a look at the last few seasons of menswear from Gucci and you will see an abundance of florals, loose fabrics and shirts and trousers that equally suit a dapper chap as much as they do a beautiful woman. Gone are the days when fashion was divided between men and women. There are a whole host of designers that are now developing collections that can be worn by both sexes. Gucci may be at the forefront but the trend has also been seen on the catwalks of JW Anderson, Burberry and Prada.
Gucci Men AW/16
Again, trust us when we say that unisex pieces tend to work better for women over men. Take grooming for example – for year now men have stolen moisturisers and the like but thankfully have avoided delving into closets.
However, there are countless items that your girlfriend will want to steal of yours and if you are OK with that ….
Calvin Klein washed blue denim jacket at Topman
Short denim jacket or bombers work really well for both sexes. For guys, they are an easy go to item for casualwear and for girls they can be dressed up or down and worn via the oversize trend.
Topman have a great selection of denim jackets, with the borg collar designs doing particularly well in this oddly cold snap.
Jaded London Souvenir Bomber Jacket With Tiger Back Print
Asos also have a fantastic range of bombers, with some great statement pieces. The souvenir jacket is huge this season. First seen on the streets of Japan, and then on the London catwalks.
Levis 1955 501 Selvedge Denim Jeans at Mr Porter
Boyfriend jeans are so named because girls are always stealing them from their boyfriends. A roomier and looser fit for both sexes, the best unisex ones tend to be regular or straight for men, which naturally comes as a little looser for women.
Baby Thermal Long Sleeve Henley at American Apparrel
A pretty simple and easy to wear item for both sexes, tops and jerseys especially 100% cotton, fitted ones, look great on boys and girls. Topman have a great range of tops with contrast sleeves and true to size that would look great on you and your girlfriend. Of course, American Apparel are the go to label for great fitted jerseys.
