Why should boys have all the fun of comfort dressing? The recent upsurge of androgynous fashion inspired from the runways of Autumn/Winter 2011 collections, brings good new for all the ladies, as they now have the liberty to dress up like their counterparts and still be a fashionista. Take your cues from your favourite Bollywood and Hollywood stars who are showing off the Androgyny look with aplomb and perfection. From Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Kalki Koechlin to Hollywood starlets Rihanna, Kate Moss, Kate Blanchett and Katie Homes amongst others. The stylish ladies showed up in well-cut tuxedo jackets coupled with skinny jeans, over sized suits, wide-legged pants with tucked in tops, halter waistcoats and check shirts; nailing the look perfectly. Fashion stylist Aakanksha Jain says, “This season, androgynous fashion will rule the trends. So, you need to update your closet with menswear staples.”

The key to this look is to style your attire with a certain masculine element that looks effortless and not dressed up. Remember not to be girly while selecting your new buys, as it’s imperative that the garments should have a masculine look whether in the fit, cut or design. You need to follow the colour scheme, which predominantly has blacks, greys, browns, beige and other neutral shades. For an interesting twist, you can also opt for a single solid bright colour garment.
