When it comes to my style, I think I only describe it as androgynous. I’ll scan through any section or store that may look like it carries clothing I’d like. As a kid I never fought about dresses, I just thought they were inconvenient. And now, I just don’t think they’re that flattering on me and have little interest in them. I feel the most important thing that matters is whether or not you feel great in what you’re wearing, because there will always be someone who just doesn’t get it.

As a kid I never fought about dresses, I just thought they were inconvenient.

How you dress does tell something about you, but there’s a different energy when it’s something you picked out because you love it versus “what’s in”. I never limit myself by asking “if I can pull it off.” I’m more likely to ask how can I pull it off. I believe it’s important to learn how to appreciate all types of styles, because then you’ll find small things you can add to your own.

I could present more masculine or feminine, but the extremes just aren’t me

For me jackets and shoes are the best thing, they last the longest and make up an outfit more than nothing. Certain pieces are just timeless. It’s my main focus when I think about a change in my wardrobe. When I go out just changing the jacket or shoes changes just how dressed up I may be. Since I consider myself outside or maybe in between when it comes to gender and masculinity/femininity I try to show it in the way I dress too. I could present more masculine or feminine, but the extremes just aren’t me. A three piece suit sounds great but I would need some edge to it. Something that makes it a little different from with the average masculine type might wear, and that is what feels like the best representation of myself.F531B9FD-2881-4C5E-86DF-6872BF806D94IMG_1317
