As an outlet for creativity, fashion plays a crucial role in reflecting fundamental societal changes and shifts. There is a continued demand for gender-neutral/fluid clothing, showcased in silhouettes as men’s clothing has become more vibrant and tight and women’s clothing has become boxier and neutral-toned. For 2023 the trending gender-neutral silhouettes are easy to adapt to your everyday wardrobe and versatile enough to wear in many scenarios.
The jumpsuit is a one-and-done fan favorite, and it works for a wide range of needs. Options from overalls to boiler suits encompass the versatility that the jumpsuit offers. The focus for gender-neutral jumpsuits, at the moment, is the boiler suit with its boxy fit, where the styling options are endless.
Gender-neutral trousers aren’t new, but the styling has gotten a refresh. The specs for nailing this style include an emphasis on comfort and functionality. Gone are the days of relying on skirts and dresses to affirm women’s place in society. Cargo pants take me back to my childhood days when Kim Possible was fighting crime effortlessly in style. Grab your turtleneck and get to work.
The typical cuts among women’s and men’s suiting have collided. Those stuffy parameters no longer apply. Runways for SS 2023 continued to showcase androgynous suiting sets with key features like lengthened blazers with a tailored yet relaxed shape on women and traditionally feminine features like slits, and feathers sported on men. Suiting is now suitable for all and isn’t strictly limited to workwear.
Designers have shifted towards genderless denim styles, including pants and coats. These designs feature clean lines and minimal fuss details. Tailored denim works for all genders and remains easy to style while looking polished with minimal effort. The tapered silhouette is classically timeless and works for numerous body types.
The appeal of a matching set is still alive and well, and the Hickory Ensemble is a go-to for those days you need to feel put together with minimal effort. The power of a crew neck sweatshirt and basic joggers is mighty. Fashion wearers from all walks of life can style matching sets for occasions in a way that works. Add a blazer for a polished look or a vest for extra warmth; you don’t need special pieces to make it work.
Gender-neutral silhouettes are all about keeping pieces streamlined and versatile. Adapting to that capsule wardrobe type of life is more attainable than ever when you add pieces like the ones above. Creativity isn’t capped, and the styling is still up to you, yet the options are plentiful and likely to stay relevant for much longer than trendy pieces and styles from the past.
