Only 2 1/2 months into 2016 and we’re already seeing major moves toward ungendered fashion. Pantone has released a gender neutral palette and even chosen a pairing of pastel pink and blue—the traditional hues representing masculine and feminine—as the colors of the year. Urban Decay has made androgynous model Ruby Rose their new ambassador. Zara released its first gender fluid clothing line, and Landeros presented a genderless clothing line at New York Fashion week.

The influence of menswear on contemporary female fashion takes many forms from slim fit jeans to tailored suits, from thick brows to pompadours. For the coming season masculine influence feels clean and polished, but without the usual edge of severity. Deeply parted and neatly tailored hairstyles, clean skin, and crisp clothing in soft neutrals present a softly androgynous look that’s clean and gamine. Learn to create the look in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

This style changes everything. That’s the great thing about having a statement cut and color –– it gives a new feeling to your entire wardrobe. This look makes a simple t-shirt and jeans combo into a rock and roll ensemble; it gives a classic sheath dress a futuristic edge; it elevates anything you dare pair it with. The disconnected lengths, short on the sides, long on top, are accentuated by contrasting colors and swept up in gravity defying peaks. The look is androgynous and versatile, merging pompadour, mohawk, and pixie. The tall shape elongates and lifts the face getting you the right kind of attention.
