|Zara Launches Gender-Neutral Clothing|
This stuff is just plain and boring. Who wants to wear that? Maybe to clean the garage, wash the car or walk the dog on a cool day. Women choosing this style are abdicating all sense of fashion. Men choosing this are being uninspired and choosing the line of least style imagination.
If this is the future, no thanks. This is not a step forward. It suggests that when men and women have the opportunity to wear the same clothes, the pieces cannot be too feminine or too masculine. It actually reinforces the idea of feminine clothing is not going to be acceptable for men to purchase and vice versa. Although women have been raiding our (men's) closet for years.
However if you go to any mall you do see this everywhere. If you confront either party, they would likely become offended. The female would say – now dare you challenge me – these are woman’s Jeans and a woman’s sweatshirt that I got at Walmart. Ask a man if he is wearing his wife’s jeans, he would likely take a swing at you. In addition, here in Florida you will likely see the ultimate, least fashionable item in the world; his-and-hers matching flip-flops or unisex velcro/Birkenstock sandals. So internally, they both are justifying their choice by shopping and purchasing in their respective departments.
One of the best examples is Brian's sense of adventure; our ballet flats expert. He is brave and lives his adventure.
As an article on the blog Outlet stated:
Let’s start a new generation of adults that are accepting and excited by the thought of uniqueness and difference. Let’s be ourselves.
Outlaws break the rules. If I do wear jeans, they are recognizable as definitely not from the men’s department. Boot cut or pull-on, tight, with decorations around the pockets. I have t-shirts that are the V-neck, split-neck, boat neck and 3/4 sleeve. My sneakers are low cut white Keds. Most of us have a great sense of style. Let us utilize it. Be an outlaw.
My travel outfit - comfortable, stylish and markedly feminine.
