What is Androgyny?
First, before we take a deep dive into some truly fashionable androgynous clothing styles, let’s make sure we’re on the same page. Androgyny has gained and lost popularity in mainstream society often so it is a word that may not be as familiar to you yet.
By definition, Androgyny is a combination of both masculine and feminine characteristics in an ambiguous form. It can be expressed in several ways and regarding biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual identity. In layman’s terms, it’s when you either identify or express yourself in a gender-fluid way, being neither female nor male. Essentially, it’s a marriage of both genders together in a well-formed balance.
When talking about androgynous clothing styles it’s often thought that it’s main characteristic is a female dressed in a more masculine way. While that can be one way to express androgyny, it’s not limited to that form. Individuals who identify as men can also dress in more feminine styles to express their fluidity or women can dress in a balanced expression of both genders to convey an androgynous appeal.
Now that we’ve skimmed over the topic and we’re all on the same page, let’s jump in and see all those amazing androgynous clothing styles you’ll most definitely want to don on your wedding day!
If history has taught us anything, it’s that classics never go out of style. The Tuxedo has been an outstanding base for fashionable choices since the late 1800s and as far as we’re concerned, it isn’t going anywhere but up. The smart, quintessential look translates effortlessly whether you want to don slacks or a dress. Adding fun details like the rhinestones on this Jay Godfrey Tuxedo Mini Dress or the onyx lapel and pockets, the Tuxedo in androgynous clothing is a style that will never let you down.
Just because you don’t want a fluffy dress doesn’t technically mean you don’t want a little bling. Adding sequins to masculine cut balances the genders so beautifully. This sequined lapel by Elisabetta Franchi comes in several different colors so you can be glam in whatever hue you’d like. Another great option is this Brunello Cucinelli Blouse with delicate detailing and sequin flair. Pair with a modern pair of slacks and you’ll have everyone wanting to sport androgynous clothing all the time. Just another instance where even if you don’t want to be the center of attention, you can still shine.
If androgynous clothing has taught us anything, it’s that it’s all about balance. Antonio Bernadi marries the genders magically by designing a structured vest and adding romantic and wistful detailing to the sleeves. Modern, masculine lines and feminine touches pair so well together that you may want to throw out the dress idea altogether! Since there is no hard-fast rule and it is, after all, your wedding, you can blend to your heart’s content and rock androgynous clothing into a wedding look people will be sure to remember.
