Gender Neutral

 In Fashion

I’ve been interviewed for the Uitkrant in Amsterdam about gender neutral fashion. It’s online and on paper now so make sure you read it! Since it’s in Dutch I thought it would be a good idea to talk about it as well. I wrote a blog post before about gender inclusive restrooms. It’s a hot topic at the moment but has been my way of thinking for quite some years now.

Gender Neutral fashion for me isn’t a way to hide my gender.  For me it’s just simply not giving a damn about the current gender pigeonhole way of thinking that many people have. I love, love, love fashion and want to play and variate as much as I can with it. If I see something I like and believe it will fit my body I’ll wear it. Not caring about which gender it’s intended for. So my style is gender neutral because I don’t let gender guide what I wear. There is a beautiful quote by Gore Vidal that’s suitable:

‘Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn’

The look: Glasses are sponsored by, feather coat is from Recessie, faux leather pants is from Topshop, and shoes are from Solestruck, bracelet is from Zipper.

About the look: I like the contradictions in this look. It’s feminine and masculine at the same time. As you can see by the way I pose. I think the pants is more masculine and the coat and accessories are more feminine. I don’t care for which gender the clothes where originally intended for. I wear what ever I think is beautiful. I do like to play with boundaries and contradictions. I am feeling this look!

What do you think?
