    this is a great post really interesting! I don’t think its an act of feminism to wear mens clothes, sometimes it’s good to wear slightly less form fitting clothes. and what’s wrong with feminism anyway?I feel this term can be seen so negatively now days

    Men’s clothes are my go to. It takes me forever to shop because I look through both departments. They fit so cute because they aren’t as tight as women’s clothes. I almost feel prettier in them.

      I understand what you mean. Sometimes men’s clothes can have the perfect fit. I’m enjoying experimenting with them. Thank you for taking the time to read and share your opinion. πŸ™‚

    Wonderful Article, thought provoking as well. I am not a feminist, but cannot deny the skewed power game that has been going on since time forever. Recently I was watching a documentary on child psychology. The professor from Harvard did an experiment where they concluded that girls even at a very small age are very much aware of the gender specificities and differences like choice of colors, use of razor etc way before the boys become aware. This also means that girls are made aware by the society early enough what is appropriate for girls and are meant for boys.
    Loved reading your take on the issue and of course androgynous look is as appealing as the feminine look, it all depends on the confidence with which you carry the look. Loved your look.

      Thank you for taking the time to read and give your thoughts.
      That’s really interesting. I didn’t know girls were more aware before boys. I remember being a child and knowing that pink and purple were girls colours, and I wanted to avoid shades like green.

    I LOVE the idea of it but never seem to be able to pull it off!
    I’ll never stop in my search to recreate Carrie’s Best Man outfit in Sex and the City! That was the first time I bowed to this idea!! xx

      I completely forgot about that outfit – and I LOVE Sex and the City! I think she did what many do – add a feminine touch. Like it was quite fitted, she had a lot of makeup and that hat! I am inspired by it now too. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. xx

        How amazing is it! I still binge on it every now and again. That outfit is defo in my top 5 for Carrie πŸ™‚ I’m now going to look into it better, I have a wedding coming up this summer and I think I may keep an eye out for something like this. I think its so chic πŸ™‚ xx

          There is a shop, this photographer was telling me about. It specifically makes men’s clothing for women. Once I get the name, I will let you know! And yes, I don’t really see it on T.V anymore, but if I do I watch. It’s kind of like with Friends. Do you have a favourite Carrie outfit of all time? xx

    I’m not a feminist- far from it- and LOVE this look! You make it look so classy. As always, you look beautiful. I have always been partial to boys shoes. Women’s shoes always have pink or glitter on them, and I much prefer just white, or just black without the pink and the glitter. I am also a wildlife photographer and when looking for outdoor clothing, the women’s Columbia shirts are pink, yellow and purple, while the men’s are in neutral colors that blend into the outside foliage (as you should when taking wildlife photos!). I would love to wear more men’s clothing, and just may incorporate more into my wardrobe! Great post! You look stunning!

      Thank you so much! I think it’s silly how we differentiate between what colours should be for what gender. I can understand with babies when you want people to know if you have had a girl or boy, but surly as adults we should be choose whether we want neutral or purple! I would be interested in knowing more about your wildlife photography and I would say go for it – add more men’s clothes. Thank you for taking the time read!

      • cherilyndoes says

        It is silly! And I agree that it’s understandable with babies, though, I had two girls and even dressed head to toe in pink and bows, people still asked if they were girls or boys! πŸ™‚ I don’t get out much anymore for photography, especially now since we’re approaching the HOT season in Florida, but I do have a Facebook page (Shttps://www.facebook.com/ShootingLifeBeautiful/) πŸ™‚ Florida wildlife isn’t as exciting as Africa. πŸ™‚

        • lauzieslifestyle says

          Hopefully this trend will stop so many of the stereotypes with genders! Florida wildlife is far more exciting than the countryside in the UK though! I would love to say I am in hot season, not that we have really one!

    • lauzieslifestyle says

      Thank you so much for reading, and for voicing your opinion. I think it would be great if we could have more unisex stores or more variety. Instead of being so gender specific!

    • lauzieslifestyle says

      I used to never wear baggy clothes. But now, I seem to being buying more and more. I actually like wearing men’s shirts…never thought I would say that a few years ago! πŸ™‚ Thank you for reading!!
