How To Build The Perfect Genderless Outfit. Gender identity is currently a prolific debate throughout the world, leading to an opinionated divide in whether gender is assigned at birth or not. Fashion has always been a way for individuals to communicate their beliefs, including gender identity.
We’ve seen this movement of expressing gender fluidity throughout the years, from as far back as the 20’s we’ve seen women steering away from traditional dresses and opting for tuxedos and short hair. Today, celebrities like Harry Styles and Kristen Stewart have taken fashion influences from greats like David Bowie and Grace Jones, who used their multi-faceted clothing to express their ever-changing musical identities throughout their careers.
It’s nothing new. It’s only recently, however, that we have seen a huge influx of brands introducing a broader range of genderless and androgynous clothing lines. It’s clothes for anyone to wear, in any way they want. Here at STUDIO EVA D, we don’t dictate who gets to wear our clothes. We give the wearer space to style the garment entirely according to their own insight. For us, gender and size are subordinate.
Think Big, Take Risks
Prioritising comfort doesn’t sound like much of a risk, but we know the majority of women’s clothing in particular has a reputation for being uncomfortable. The beauty of genderless fashion is that it inspires inclusivity and breaks social norms for both women and men.
Mistakes are inevitable in anything we try, but we’re here to help guide you along a path of expression. Whether that be with contrasting patterns or alternating sizes and shapes, STUDIO EVA D can help you lean towards a brilliant genderless outfit for all seasons.
Don’t be afraid to rock this beautiful ankle-length Unisex Caftan Mille Fleurs. It’s a relaxed fit for everybody. The great thing about this item is that you can wear it as a layering shirt or a dress for those hot summer days.
As advocates of genderless fashion, we can’t deny that the blazer is a classic when it comes to combining with a basic top and pants, for whoever desires to wear it. Our Blazer jacket ‘Slack’ grey pinstripe is made from supple wool with a classic straight cut, great for a classy or cool occasion.
Mix Your Textures and Colours
How to build the perfect genderless outfit? Textures with opposing tones can be a great way to make your outfit a lot more interesting and suitable for all seasons throughout the year.
Colours such as blues and pinks have been associated with genders since as early as the 19th century, once again limiting options for outfits for both genders and restricting how society associates with the colour in the fashion industry.
Genderless fashion usually steers towards muted tones.
For your outfit, it’s safe to head towards colours like greys, blacks and whites as a foundation. Once you have your base, don’t be afraid to throw in a seasonless, neutral tone like a yellow or orange. Again, the beauty of finding the perfect outfit is to experiment. Don’t be afraid to mix your fabrics too! Try a linen and corduroy mix with opposing tones, great for bringing out the textures of both fantastic natural materials.
STUDIO EVA D prides itself on our clothes with colours that combine endlessly. Our straight-cut Genderless Pants ‘Farmer’ Worker Sand is loose-fitted and practical and the light tan will work great with an opposing accent like our crewneck Big Tee ‘Leut’ Black.
Be Subtle With Your Accessories
This is a great place for you to express a subtle aspect of your personality on a smooth canvas. The more straightforward, the better.
It’s also a great way to introduce some colour to your palette. It could be with jewellery, belts, and even a scarf. More importantly, it’s a great place for you to have some fun with your style!
Our Handwoven Scarf Check is the perfect accessory to bring a contrast in patterns, colours and textures. It’s composed of high-quality linen, silk, organic cotton and alpaca, creating a beautiful depth and softness.
Leather is a perfect texture to accompany any of your desired outfits, and our durable Leather shopper ‘Lasticbag’ art is the perfect stylish and practical accessory. The subtle splashing of colour and durability makes it a great example of timeless design for business and leisure.
Like any style, having a genderless outfit should be a way for you to express yourself. It can not only break away from the social norms with the typical gender-assigned clothing, but it can also be beneficial for you financially and have a more positive impact on the environment. The use of organic materials in the clothes by STUDIO EVA D is another reason why we consider them timeless and with a longer lifespan, you can endlessly combine for years to come and reduce harmful waste to the environment.
All things considered, we need to state that we don’t want to dictate what to wear. Giving you the space to style our garments entirely and offering clothing that doesn’t form the body subverts gender norms in fashion, giving you the space to style however you wish.
Wear what you love. Cherish it and it lasts a long time.
