Indulge in some light-hearted fun by trying out menswear items. Looking for edgy formal separates? Browse through the men’s section and you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

It’s fun to include some feminine element when you wear menswear from head-to-toe. Tricks like tucking the top in to make your lower body seem longer and sticking to gender-neutral hues like beige, brown and green will help.

Men’s jogg jeans are fun and comfortable to wear. Moreover, they look great when paired with clean separates and sleek high heels.

Khaki, being a versatile colour, works well for both sexes. Plus, it adds a military touch that will only up your cool quotient. High heels are the best way to round off this look.

Get the look!
Throw on an oversized men’s coat or sweater to stand out from the crowd. Even better that big coats are all the rage right now.

Get the look!
Make a statement with chequered/printed suits; high neck tops and pleated trousers too will help you look sharp at formal events.

While oversized coats make for a smart sartorial choice, it’s also a good idea to team a suit in a solid colour with a printed jumper as the resulting ensemble spells chic comfort.

What is Ungender? #UngenderExplained

did an #Ungender issue in February 2017 with Nepali transgender model Anjali Lama on the cover

At the core, #Ungender is an emotion that reiterates every individual’s right to the freedom of expression, in what they wear, how they speak and how they choose to think of themselves. Aishwarya Subramanyam, the much-loved editor of Elle India till just last week, explains that Ungender is a movement that aims at breaking down society’s ideas of how men and women should behave. “Ungender is basically the acceptance of anyone on the gender spectrum – man, woman or a transgender. It is about gender equality and by that I am referring to all genders, not just man and woman,” she says.
