A shift toward androgyny has been building over the past two years with big names like Hedi Slimane and Riccardo Tisci who favor traditional feminine elements such as capes, skirts, and tights in their menswear runway collections. Now brands like Baja East and Gucci address this issue by creating androgynous clothing.
Runways don’t care of your gender. They blend it all and mixed them up together. It’s okay for men wearing make up and dress all feminine. The same way it is okay for women to be all androgyny with the pantsuit and the super short pixie hair.

Popular among professional athletes and many men who enjoy the comfort and support these pieces bring (not to mention the admiring glances). The swim briefs have been held up as the beacon of modern swimwear since 2006-think Daniel Craig’s baby blue trunks in 007 Casino Royale- it’s tight and low cut but it doesn’t look like underwear.
These trunks require confidence, though with less fabric flapping about, they are practical for swimming and getting a perfect tan. Ditch forever the board shorts drooping past your knees or elastic-waist dad trunks and give the swim briefs a try.
