KARACHI: There’s nothing like making your dad, brother, or husband borrow baggy T-shirts and kurtas. Gender-neutral couture is the hot new style in the age of civil justice, equal love and equal fashion.
Seen globally, this ‘fluid trend’ exceeds the limits of sex and has had celebrities hopping on the bandwagon from all around the globe. Many famous female figures have been seen in gender-neutral clothes, including Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Meghan Markle, Saba Qamar, Sonakshi Sinha and Sonam Kapoor-Ahuja, while male stars such as Harry Styles, Johnny Depp, Sam Smith, Ranveer Singh, Cody Fern and Billy Porter have also been wearing feminine styles.
In honour of this fun –and sometimes, outrageous – fashion fad, here are some of our favourite gender-fluid looks of recent times. It’s all a case of stretching the limits, isn’t it?
A matching kurta and dhoti set in off-white tones, complemented by a finely block-printed maroon dupatta, were held by the Hindi-Medium star. With sleek-parted hair and leather khussas, Qamar carried the attire, allowing the desi girl to shine through within her.
The elegance of Padmaavat is very famous for wearing the traditional pant suit in the most glamorous of ways. In design, the outfit exudes a certain strength and boldness, almost ‘male’. With this Loewe matching package with a bright colour pattern and stripes, Padukone played with menswear. Needless to mention, she looked wow, without effort!
