It’s edgy, classic and chic. Looks extremely sexy on a woman (if carried well!). Yes, we’re talking about going the Androgynous way. Don’t be alarmed, we are just talking about fashion and makeup looks that Androgyny , the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics inspires! This look first caught my attention when I saw our eternal fashion-it girl, Sarah Jessica Parker looking resplendent in a crisp Christian Dior suit complete with a bow tie and dramatic headgear in the second instalment of Sex and the City.
The most defining aspect of Androgynous clothing is that it takes the gender out of fashion and beauty. Take a cue from these celebrities who rocked andro-chic ensembles with much-needed quirkiness!
Outfit Coordination Level: BRANGELINA. Enough said!
The first lady of Indian fashion sure has a flair for perking up a fabulous suit!
And we thought she couldn’t get any cuter!

Top talk show host with the sunniest smile always plays it cool in uber casual and classy outfits!
Fret not, ladies. In order to achieve this look, you don’t have to actually buy a tux or a bowtie, but can make do with what you have in your very own wardrobes (or your guy friend’s wardrobe!). For example, pair a smart shirt with a fabulous pair of crisp shorts/trousers/culottes, loafers and a quirky tie for a complete Androgynous look. Have you tried it yet?
