Androgynous fashion is popular trend currently getting a lot of attention on Pinterest boards, Buzzfeed and numerous online publications. Interestingly, the style is really nothing new in the fashion world.
In the 1920’s, French designer Coco Chanel introduced men’s trousers in her women’s sportswear collection. Prominent fashion designers Pierre Cardin, Paco Rabanne, Yves Saint Laurent and Halston all reinterpreted men’s fashions in their women’s designs during the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Film star Dianne Keaton’s wardrobe in the film Annie Hall set the stage for the current “Boyfriend fashion look,” which took off in the past decade. And, who could forget rock legend David Bowie and singer Boy George’s androgynous looks from the 1970’s and 1980’s respectively.
Unisex or androgynous fashions have also been very popular in regards to the wristwatches and sunglasses. For decades, many women have chosen to wear larger size men’s watches instead of more diminutive women’s sizes, while many styles of eyewear are suitable for either men or women.
In addition, some men still prefer midsize or unisex timepieces that are more comfortable and less imposing on their wrists.
