Androgynous | Plus size picks

Androgynous fashion has been around for a long time but what's interesting to see is that it's now a trend us plus size ladies can experiment with a lot more than we could previously. I love the balance of feminine and masculine traits and that you don't have to flatter your figure or show off your curves in order to be classed as attractive. I've put together three looks that I think depict this trend but allow you to delve into it as much or as little as you want to.

Androgynous fashion in the plus size world                                                                                      *All images c/o ASOS


Outfit No. 1 - With this look I have incorporated a smart, tailored jacket with a more casual, sexy collection of pieces. Can we talk about the gorgeous wide fit heels please? They make all other wide fit heels look frumpy! The printed tee adds a bit of fun to this outfit and then the bold red lipstick and the fedora hat add a seriously sexy touch. If you wanted to, you could wear this outfit in the day with flats but then slip on those heels for a night out on the razz (as my Dad calls it)

Outfit No. 2 - This might not be a very ground breaking look and it might be something many of you wear regularly but I like the simplicity of it and it's not a look I tend to wear at all. I always shy away from jeans but I'm thinking of giving these boyfriend jeans a go. I love the basic raglan sleeve top, the white Vans and you can either wear the check shirt as it's intended to be worn or tied round your waist. I added a seriously chunky gold watch - keeping this look quite simple yet well put together.

Outfit No. 3 - For this final look I wanted to incorporate elements from the previous two outfits but add a quirky twist. To start off with, I wanted to find a crisp white shirt but didn't want your standard long sleeved jobby. This short sleeved one, with fancy hem details would look perfect worn with these grey ripped jeans. I would roll them up slightly, show a bit of that leg off and then let everyone see your rather excellent brogue style boots! To finish off the look I would add some sort of neck tie/ribbon, strap on some braces and slick back my hair into a low, sleek ponytail.


Is this a trend you could see yourself wearing, do you tend to wear stuff like this all the time or will you let others try it and continue wearing your uber feminine floral outfits? Let me know in the comments below!

  3. I love playing the androgyny game ... so much so that I frequently dress as Charlie Chaplin (moustache and all). All the looks you've created are so wearable but I especially covet the first look which will be brilliant for those days when you need to power-play in the office!
