As we reach the end of the Spring/Summer 2023 Men’s Fashion Week cycle, it’s only become clearer that genderless fashion is the new way to really push the bounds of style. Shopping categories have expanded and the runways are flooded with fluid designs. Although some of us have never limited ourselves to the labels of shopping departments, dressing fluidly is still a new concept to most. Understanding clothes are just clothes and that they are not attached to gender is the first step, but understanding the art of self-expression and personal style is vital to mastering genderless fashion.
Aside from tasteful styling, accomplishing genderless style is much different from the usual protocol of following new trends. It’s not about keeping up with the crowd. It’s truly about following your instincts and wearing what makes you feel most comfortable and happy. However, we know how things can be easier said than done, which is why we’ve connected with five stylish innovators that truly embody fluid fashion to get the scoop on the secret to their sauce. These individuals make genderless fashion look easy or extremely calculated in the best way. Ahead, you’ll meet five new sources for style inspiration and discover that following your gut is the best thing you can do for your sense of style.
@jeromelamaar: “My style is a mixture of so many elements. I can wear literally anything. I see my realm as a bridge into other worlds merging realistic pieces with the fantastical like a real life anime character.”
@beenslackin: “My style is really just me having fun! Trends are constantly changing, so trying to keep up will have you going broke or crazy. The best way to move is to have fun, be comfortable, wear what fits your body and most importantly be happy!”
@martin_gregory: “I really don’t think there’s one way to describe my style. It really depends on my mood, but it always involves clean lines, attention to detail and a little bit of whimsy. Some days I just want to dress up super goth and other days it’s anime fantasy meets reality, and most nights out I like a bit of leather involved. Dressing up should be fun and it shouldn’t be taken too seriously – that’s why I always like to include a quirky detail or two to my looks. Every piece of clothing has a story and sometimes I can go on and on about one piece and its origins. I’m a sucker for lush fabrics, vibrant colours, interesting textures – something different always piques my interest.”
@shaunross: “I would say my style is forever evolving to be honest. I think right now I want to feel vibrant and spiritually light. There is a lot of heaviness floating around right now, so I want my style to bring vibrance. I wore black purposely for almost 2 years as a neutralizer, but now I’m heading into clothing that actually fits my mood rather than aesthetic.”
@tytryone: “I wear feel-good clothing. I take a piece from here and another piece from there, throw it up in the air and see where it lands. You can find a great vintage piece then mix it with a more lux piece and you wind up looking original. I think you can find pieces everywhere. There are no rules. I love to feel good in what I wear and I feel the best when I look and feel my authentic self.”
