In the past two to three years, we’ve seen gender fluid fashion gain momentum and honestly, we couldn’t be happier. You must not have to curb your urge if you don’t want to stick to traditional gender-based clothing. And fashion’s torchbearers agree to the same. Creative director Alessandro Michele had men walk down the Gucci runway in pussy bow blouses last season; his collections were free from gender definitions. “Wearing a skirt comes as naturally to him as it would to a woman who, long ago, granted herself permission to wear a man’s trench or a tuxedo,” said Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of Louis Vuitton, when asked why he chose Jaden Smith for his Spring/Summer 2017 womenswear campaign. If you’re one who feels gender-based clothing is limited for your taste, and admire style icons like Harry Styles and Kurt Cobain, then here are three outfit ideas to inspire you so you can experiment with your look.

For Those Who Like Classics
If your style is more classic (but with a twist), then this look is for you. Ditch the regular straight-cut kurta and opt for a flared kurta instead; one with pleats. Style this with a pair of dark wash jeans or a white churidar and slip into a pair of Kolhapuri chappals. Go for accessories like a pair of reading glasses to add that quirk and dimension to this look.
For The Bold Guy
Have a wedding to attend sometime soon? Ditch the conventional look and wear a sleeveless kurta with embroidered jeans. The best way to accessorise this look is with a stylish wristlet and a pair of stylish mules. It’s minimal yet dressy, and that’s the best. We assure you that you’ll be a head-turner as you walk by.
For The Experimental Man
Style a dungaree with a crewneck tee in a contrasting colour along with a pair of sneakers. Go for accessories like a leather sling bag and acetate glasses for this look. If you are bold enough to experiment, we suggest you go for a dungaree in bright colours as well as sneakers with slight detailing. This look is fun, bold and exudes immense confidence. It’s also got that casual vibe.
