There has always been some overlap between mens and women’s fashion. Tights were first worn by men. Fedora’s were originally for women. Many current fashion staples like jeans look great on both genders and we’re seeing more and more crossover between trends for men and women, even in hairstyling. Read on to see the top five gender neutral trends and see who wore it better, the men or the women. –– Laura Martin
We love Jared leto, but how many men could really pull this off? Ombre can work on both genders, but we think it looks best on feminine features. Lily Aldridge’s beautiful meld is untoppable.
Natural, barely-there waves look great on just about everyone, man or woman. But we gotta give to to the ladies, mermaid hair is distinctly feminine.
The wet look can be perfectly glamorous on the right woman, but it works much more consistently on men where severity isn’t as much of an issue.
For ladies the top knot is casual alternative to a ponytail. For men the look is daring, fashionable, warrior-like and sexy. They win.
This one is a tie. The cut looks great on both genders; it’s the perfect balance of structure and softness.
