5 Must Have Items To Create The Perfect Minimal Androgynous Fashion Outfit

Androgyny is a combination of feminine and masculine characteristics, a play of sexual ambiguity. To achieve a minimal androgynous look, all you have to need are some staples, and you're all set!

Living in the 21st century, we can see how fashion trends dominate the world more than ever. These trends not only define what we wear and how we wear it but also people's overall attitude and personalities along with their beliefs. They play a major role in unifying people around the world having similar beliefs and fashion preferences. One such bold and daring trend is "Androgynous fashion". 

Before starting with who an ‘Androgynous Minimalist’ really is, let’s get a grip on what androgynous fashion or clothing means. 

Androgyny is a combination of feminine and masculine characteristics, a play of sexual ambiguity. A garment that can’t be associated with a certain gender stereotype is considered androgynous.

Androgynous fashion is nothing but the balance between masculine and feminine aesthetics as well as the result of playing with contrast and symmetries

So, while we say Androgynous fashion is gender-neutral, minimalism on the other hand holds on the principle of less is more and this together makes ‘The Androgynous Minimalist’.

Androgynous fashion is a trend that’s becoming a major hit and it’s the style that will remain timeless if you style it in a minimalist way. Just attempt to have a simple existence void of unnecessary baggage in the form of trend pieces and items. 

If you’re a woman and looking at going for an androgynous style with a hint of minimalism then the foremost thing you should do is to minimize some of the feminine aspects of your style, and be skillful in mixing-and-matching menswear items to create that androgynous style. 

You can opt for menswear or unisex pieces and combine them with little or no feminine additives to give it your own twist. Remember that the key is to stay minimal, so the trick will be to achieve the right look in a minimal way with no unnecessary baggage.
