Get the Look: Androgyny

Following on from the last Get the Look, I thought I would give another trend a go. Androgyny has been an important trend for a while now - this Autumn/Winter is no different. Ann Demeulemeester used a parade of blacks and a hint of cleavage for a woman's touch. We saw the likes of Dolce & Gabbana sending out their take on dressing like the opposite sex - with the short jumper giving a sly nod to the 90s. The king of Androgyny is of course none other than Alexander Wang. Women everywhere have been going mad for his sportswear inspired pieces. The mix of textures that Wang uses is what always excites me about seeing his next collection. I also love the pink Acne look - the boxy jacket could look unflattering but the use of a feminine colour diffuses this.

When looking to the high-street to re-create the Androgynous look, you will find there are no end of places to pick great pieces up. I have put together one outfit - leaving out the suit jacket. Although you will find this look everywhere in the women's department, don't rule out looking in the men's. Topman have some great Knitwear for Winter, all you have to do is buy a smaller size. I often find myself in Topman looking at their jewellery section - it can be a little bit cheaper than Topshop. If you want to make a statement with your footwear a loafer or brogue is your best bet. I love these leopard print loafers from Kurt Geiger. If you are looking for the perfect trouser I think a tapered leg would best suit this look. There are so many different colours and even different patterns out there that you can work with this trend. The above pair for Topshop have the added detail of a leather waistband; adding another texture to the outfit. 

Will you be trying the Androgynous look this Winter?
