If you’ve been anywhere near the internet this week, you’ll likely have seen pictures from Harry Styles’ latest photoshoot.
As the first ever solo male cover star for Vogue US, Harry Styles has really made a splash.
Decked out in a Gucci ballgown and a tuxedo jacket for the cover shot, and kilts, skirts and jewellery in other photos from the shoot, Styles blurred the boundaries between masculine and feminine fashion with his gender neutral dressing.
Even Beyoncé (yes, that Beyoncé) is in on the trend, with her latest Ivy Park x Adidas collection containing jumpsuits, dresses, shoes and more that have been designed for everyone in mind, regardless of gender.
There’s good reason for it, too. Gender neutral clothing has become more and more popular in recent years, particularly amongst Generation Z, who tend to be more open-minded about gender and sexuality.
In fact, according to a 2016 survey carried out by The Innovation Group, only 44 percent of Generation Z respondents said that they ‘always bought clothes designed for their own gender’.
Clearly, the ‘shoulds’ and ‘should nots’ of fashion are being broken down, with more and more people looking to dress in clothes they feel good in, regardless of gender categories.
But how can you get in on the trend yourself? Well, there’s a whole range of places you can look, with independent and sustainable brands and even some high street chains offering their own gender neutral lines.
Here are some of the best places to shop online for gender neutral clothes.
