‘Androgyny’ comes from the Greek words andro (man) and gyne (woman). Androgyny in the fashion world means dressing in a way that deliberately blurs the line between masculine and feminine.
Though androgynous dressing for women is generally seen as tomboyish, to me it can make the wearer seem more feminine – as though the act of wearing clothes made for men, and still looking like a woman, accentuates her intrinsic femininity. Natalie Portman wearing a suit and a mustache is the ultimate example of this (and could she not look any hotter in it? Seriously!).
For a women to dress in an androgynous way, think tailored shirts, ties, wide-legged trousers, flat brogues, loose blazers, ‘boyfriend’ jeans, college shorts, breton stripe shirts and trilbys. Try borrowing your boyfriend’s t-shirt, or search ‘boy’ on asos.com for inspiration.
