BEST Non-binary Clothing Styles For All Body Types

There’s nothing better than androgynous clothing to avoid being cataloged by gender and all related stereotypes.

Most androgynous clothing brands are designed to disguise the gender of the wearer.

However, there are gender-free clothing labels that allow the wearer to showcase where they see themselves on the spectrum of gender identification.

I find the latter gender-fluid clothing brands ideal if your clothes change a lot, whether you want your outfits to be perceived as masculine or feminine.

In this article, I will introduce you to the BEST 30 androgynous clothing brands in 2022.

Whether you’re looking for men’s silhouettes that flatter curves, masculine cuts for women, or a clothing brand that eschews the concept of gender altogether, this article is for you!

EDITOR’S NOTE

“Wales Bonner androgynous collection is a distinct notion of luxury fashion inspired by a blend of European and Afro-Atlantic culture.”

Shop at MATCHESFASHION

Shop at FARFETCH

Wales Bonner is a gender-free clothing label launched in 2014 by the British designer Grace Wales Bonner, a Central St. Martins graduate.

The British designer started the eponymous collection with menswear and later expanded into women’s clothing.

However, when interviewed by the British Elle, Grace explained:

I think of my collections as a whole, rather than breaking it up into men’s and women’s.

The designer embraces a diversity of design perspectives with lenses from critical theory, musical compositions, literature, and history.

The label proposes a distinct style of androgynous fashion inspired by a blend of European and Afro-Atlantic culture.

Wales Bonner’s international stockists include Matchesfashion.com, Dover Street Market, Net-A-Porter, Barneys, Ssense, Browns, Boon the Shop, Galeries Lafayette, and Farfetch.

EDITOR’S NOTE

“Telfar has won a devoted following by living up to its motto, “not for you, for everyone” – so much so that the label’s signature bag has been dubbed the ‘Bushwick Birkin’.”

Shop at CETTIRE

Shop at FARFETCH

Telfar Clemens designed androgynous clothes in NYC long before the fashion establishment deemed it a trend.

The self-taught designer presented the first collection in 2005, producing several coveted androgynous and unisex lines that enchant the buyers.

The genderless brand caters to an all-inclusive community, stocking androgynous styles for all body types, from plus-size to petite clothing.

Telfar’s androgynous clothing sells out in minutes (see their recent collab with Ugg!).

Shop at SSENSE

Shop at FARFETCH

Launched by the design duo Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, Eckhaus Latta is another New York-based fashion brand with androgynous and gender-free style clothing.

The designer Zoe Latta explains that the brand aims to make people stylish and free again:

We offer alternatives to one’s self: body image, gender spectrum, identity, and even color.

With one of New York’s most exciting runway shows to watch, the unconventional fashion brand built an excellent reputation for androgynous and gender-neutral designs.

One DNA Androgynous Clothing – thevou.com

EDITOR’S NOTE

“The brand stands out thanks to its gender-neutral clothing pieces that break down menswear and womenswear boundaries without sacrificing style.”

Shop at UO

Described in the past as a fashion label defying social constructs, One DNA is a black and queer-owned clothing label from NYC.

The brand designs eco-conscious basics like sweatshirts, crewnecks, sweatpants, and tees often imprinted with powerful messages such as “We Should All Be Them.”

Leader of the unisex trend, the brand’s androgynous collections were featured in Highsnobiety and WWD.

One DNA’s sleek collections are designed for buyers of any age, gender spectrum, skin color, or race.

The pieces are made in safe and fair conditions at independent workshops in New York City.

Wildfang Androgynous Clothing – thevou.com

EDITOR’S NOTE

“Wildfang is an androgynous fashion label that continues to break stylistic and social boundaries with creations that’ll make you stand out from the crowd – great for all body types.”

Shop at AMAZON

Meaning ‘tomboy’ in German, Wildfang was born when two Nike executives realized there aren’t many menswear-inspired clothes for women to choose from.

With flattering silhouettes, the label offers a wide range of workwear, suits, and tees designed to convey a pared-down, structured look, often found in the men’s section.

Wildfang’s androgynous fashion styles are built with the tenets of sustainable fashion in mind, from natural fabrics beyond gender lines.

The label was founded in 2013 with the belief that “any woman has the right to wear whatever the hell she wants and be whoever the hell she wants.”

Speaking of rights, since launching, the brand has given almost $1M to charities and organizations that support immigrant and queer rights.

EntireWorld Androgynous Clothing
EntireWorld Androgynous Clothing – thevou.com

EDITOR’S NOTE

“I found the brand’s wardrobe essentials something that won’t go out of style in a year, taking up space in your closet or ending up in a landfill.”

Shop at MR PORTER

EntireWorld is a sustainability-driven clothing brand that doesn’t purport to be gender-neutral.

However, the brand’s lines of monochrome and striped basics are excellent for building an androgynous wardrobe and a reasonable price point.

The brand’s designers use materials with negligible environmental impacts, such as organic cotton, hemp, and even upcycled clothing.

Again, not an androgynous clothing brand per se, and yet, EntireWorld’s garments are gender-free ready, beautiful, and sustainable.

Pleats Please Androgynous Clothing
Pleats Please Androgynous Clothing – thevou.com

EDITOR’S NOTE

“Made with a unique “garment pleating” technique, Pleats Please by Issey Miyake offers gender-free and androgynous clothing in some of the most flattering cuts and shapes.”

Shop at SSENSE

Shop at MATCHESFASHION

Shop at FARFETCH

Pleats Please line debuted as part of Issey Miyake’s 1988 collection.

Following the 90s fashion craze, the label grew to become a brand of its own and was officially launched in 1994.

The label isn’t concerned with gender norms, gender identity, or any constructs around gender, for that matter.

However, the brand’s unique “garment pleating” technique – materials develop from a single thread with pleats added after sewing the clothes into shape – the pieces are super functional and suitable for all genders.

There’s no need to dry-clean, and you can fold them in a compact size for easy storage and carrying.

The designs are versatile, making them suitable for all genders and body types.

Comfortable and beautiful, Pleats Please by Issey Miyake reflects the designer’s approach to fashion – a concept derived from Japanese fashion:

“Design is not for philosophy, but life.

“As an independently owned gender-free clothing brand, Tibi’s fashion creations showcase rare stylistic views inspired by the designer’s explorations into multiple disciplines.”

Shop at SHOPBOP

Shop at FARFETCH

If you’re after one-of-a-kind blazers and high-waisted slacks, look no further than Tibi, a brand for fashion pioneers and gender-fluid fashion.

Launched by a family of artists in a small town off the coast of Georgia, the brand has become a staple for fashion editors and stylists of all genders.

I love creating contradictory apparel that fights social norms: youthful and sophisticated, masculine and feminine, bold and muted.

Shop at GARMENTORY

Driven by the ethos “Clothes Are Tool Of Living,Black Crane has a comfortable androgynous daily wear style that looks stylish and functional.

The brand’s andro-style creations are recommended by all, from streetwear fashionistas to those seeking comfortable pajamas to wear at home.

I also love that the designers use only natural fibers – renewable and biodegradable textiles colored with low-impact dyes.

Moreover, to minimize waste, the brand produces only two seasons per year, following a cut-to-order production system.

TooGood

TooGood Androgynous Clothing
TooGood Androgynous Clothing – thevou.com

EDITOR’S NOTE

“A celebration of couture craftsmanship, each androgynous garment takes its name, inspiration, and cut from the traditional trade: the ‘Metalworker’ jacket, the ‘Stonemason’ trouser, and so on.”

Shop at MATCHESFASHION

Shop at FARFETCH

TooGood is a London-based fashion design studio co-founded in 2008 by sisters Faye and Erica Toogood.

The designer’s expertise in interior design, homeware, fine art, and fashion is reflected by their obsession with not being boxed and constrained (in the creative process).

As such, TooGood’s unique clothing styles defy gender categorization, allowing a natural movement between genres.

With over 60 stockists worldwide, including Selfridges, Farfetch, Dover Street Market, and Matchesfashion, TooGood’s androgynous clothes are a fierce weapon in showcasing stylistic freedom anywhere, anytime.

Shop at VESTIAIRE

Shop at GRAILED

Born in Jordan to a Syrian mother and Jordanian-Canadian father, Rad Hourani is a Canadian fashion designer, art director, activist, and visual artist that celebrates neutrality as a defining human trait.

Hourani’s androgynous clothing style – inspired by modern media, painting, sculpture, photography, and costumes – revolves around themes of neutrality.

Hourani’s androgynous clothing comprises art elements that expose the foundations of social, religious, economic, sexual, and geopolitical systems, proposing neutrality as a new universal vision.

Nudie Jeans Androgynous Clothing – thevou.com

EDITOR’S NOTE

“Known for salvaged jeans made from organic cotton, Nudie Jeans’ styles and cuts are intentionally made gender-fluid, for people who love showcasing stylistic freedom while breaking in a thick pair of denim that lasts forever.”

Shop at NUDIE JEANS

Shop at SSENSE

Shop at FARFETCH

Nudie Jeans is a unisex clothing brand specializing in high-quality, sustainable denim.

Nudie Jeans is based on the idea of raw, untreated fabric, which had at the time been falling into oblivion, and wasn’t sought after by the public.

Nudie Jeans’ ethical and environmental philosophy was drawn long before genderless fashion was demanded, and sustainability was just a ‘cool’ word.

One of the most loved jeans brands in the androgynous community, I highly recommend you try a pair.

Shop at MR PORTER

Shop at MATCHESFASHION

Shop at FARFETCH

A creation of Emily Adams Bode, BODE is an androgynous clothing brand initially marketed as luxury menswear.

By intentionally blending textile sourcing narratives (antique textiles) with traditional manufacturing techniques, BODE’s clothing lines evoke a style described as ‘sentimentality of the past.’

More recently, BODE showcases a stunning gender-free workwear style augmented by female-centric traditions of quilting, mending, and appliqué.

Shop at GARMENTORY

Shop at GRAILED

OlderBrother is a gender-neutral brand from Portland, Oregon, that creates charming androgynous outerwear collections.

The story of the label is exciting, and it goes like this:

Whether called mentor, friend, or older brother, everyone knows someone who walks ahead, preparing the path for them.”

According to the designer, the label makes universal garments tailored to fit people rather than genders such as women or men.

OlderBrother’s androgynous collections are super hip, trendy, and utilitarian.

EDITOR’S NOTE

“Loverboy’s androgynous style is unique, radical, streetwear-inspired, and champions to perfection London’s queer community glitz and style.”

Shop at MATCHESFASHION

Shop at SSENSE

Shop at FARFETCH

Loverboy is the creation of Charles Jeffrey, a young Scottish genderqueer fashion designer.

Driven by the “No Rules” mantra, Jeffrey explains the reason behind the androgynous clothing brand:

People pick up instruments without knowing how to play and that’s what Loverboy is about.

It’s a space that allows you not to know what you’re doing, but no one will stop you.

With theatrical and avant-garde runway shows worth the world’s capitals of fashion, Loverboy’s fashion creations ignore all gender stereotypes and norms.

Power dressing, dapper style, and men in skirts with make-up are pillars of Jeffrey’s gender-bending label aesthetic.

Shop at SELFRIDGES

Shop at RILEY STUDIO

Launched to change mindsets and make conscious consumerism the norm, Riley Studio creates androgynous clothing from recycled materials.

With sustainable, genderless, and timeless clothing, Riley Studio reinvents the quintessential British wardrobe.

While sporting more modern looks recently, the label is renowned for classic carcoats, flannel overshirts, and cozy sweaters straight out of a casual scene from ‘The Crown.

I like a lot Riley’s Zip Track pants’ comfort and versatility, and I wear them a lot when traveling.

Shop at WOLF & BADGER

A creation of MI Leggett, a New York-based non-binary artist and former food justice advocate, Official Rebrand turns unwanted textiles into stylish androgynous clothing.

Since 2017, Leggett has blended environmental justice with gender expression into a brand acclaimed worldwide.

Leggett’s shows and collections at New York Fashion Week have been labeled by the CFDA as “one to watch.”

“Bobblehaus’ relaxed plaid suits and body shapes are a stunning blend of Y2K fashion with the current digital clothing styles taking over TikTok and Instagram.”

Shop at BOBBLEHAUS

Launched amidst the global pandemic, Bobblehaus forwent plans for a physical SoHo pop-up store and debuted the first collection online.

Founded by Chinese-Americans Ophelia Chen and Abi Lierheimer, the genderless clothing brand is full of exciting colors, prints, and boxy shapes that look good on anyone.

Bobblehaus’ androgynous styles are designed in New York and made in Shanghai, bridging the East and West youth cultures.

The brand offers many neutral palettes – navy, khaki, and greys – in ripstop nylon hook-ups, embroidered sweatsuits, and lounge-worthy Tencel sets.

Yet, the designer uses solid doses of watermelon pink, orchid purple, and green tea shades to punch up the vibrancy right where and when it is needed.

IJJI Androgynous Clothing – thevou.com

EDITOR’S NOTE

“IJJI blends to perfection Western with Eastern cultural patterns and traditional symbols to deliver a unique androgynous clothing style you won’t find anywhere else.”

Shop at IJJI

Founded in 2016 in Tokyo, IJJI is a genderless clothing label of rare stylistic Japanese heritage.

The brand’s name “Ijji” describes the Japanese word イージーパンツ.

The word translates into “any loose drawstring pant,” meaning a clothing label that makes fitted pants for all people and body types.

Defined by a focus on gender-free styles from natural fibers and beautiful colors, the Japanese label creates interesting androgynous silhouettes loved across the world.

More recently manufactured in California, the brand’s androgynous clothes are elegant and can be worn as daily uniforms.

No Sesso

No Sesso Androgynous Clothing
No Sesso Androgynous Clothing – thevou.com

EDITOR’S NOTE

“No Sesso promotes stylistic nonconformity – with the help of reconstructed knits and statement separates – intending to serve and celebrate the global gender-free and androgynous communities.”

Shop at NOSESSO

Right off the bat, “No Sesso” in Italian translates into English as “no sex/no gender.”

Founded by Pierre Davis in 2015, No-Sesso is a small Italian fashion brand operating out of Los Angeles.

In collaboration with Autumn Randolph and Arin Hayes, Davis’ androgynous clothing brand challenges the conventions of fashion, art, culture, and design.

As a community-powered brand that empowers people of all colors, shapes, and identities, No Sesso’s garments are made of reconstructed materials and hand embroidery.

Making nonconformity as beautiful and inclusive as possible, No Sesso celebrates the community it serves with limited ed. collections, fashion shows, educational activities, and more.

However, I have found the brand’s offering quite limited, not only regarding androgynous clothing but in general.

There are very few products on the brand’s official website – which is a shame as there’s so much potential.

“Like Cilium, a membrane of ever-changing nature, the brand’s superb androgynous and genderless clothing follows a constant transformative process.”

Shop at CILIUM

Powered by a non-binary gender identity, Cilium‘s philosophy explores and celebrates gender non-exclusivity and innovation in fashion.

Cilium’s clothing conception was sparked in 2009 by friends Tilly Lapidos and Thom Barranca.

Questioning the idea of gender in clothing, the designers started making unisex, sustainable clothing under the brand name ‘TILLYandWILLIAM.’

However, in 2018, the duo decided to launch a new gender-free clothing label, Cilium – a protective cellular layer.

“Driven by a deep commitment to sustainability, each Androgyny garment is designed and handmade from GOTS-certified organic cotton in the brand’s UK-based studio.”

Shop at ANDROGYNY

Androgyny is a UK-based gender-neutral streetwear brand launched by Peter Bevan.

Androgyny was launched to showcase the power of gender-fluid clothes as a powerful form of self-expression.

I like how the founder describes the brand’s ‘moon and triangle’ logo:

“The moon is from Plato’s description of ‘androgynes’ = ‘Children of the Moon’ in Greek philosophy, while the triangle symbolizes the end of traditional gender dichotomy of male and female.”

In the founder’s views, gender is a fluid state, and thus, fashion must be designed to allow the wearer to express any identity they want.

“Famous for androgynous clothing with a subtle feminine touch, VEEA’s loose silhouettes, and baggy streetwear hoodies have a unique design that will make you look fabulous and feel great.”

Shop at VEEA

Be your authentic self without apologies and stay true,” reads the motto of this genderless and non-conforming androgynous fashion brand.

Launched in 2012, VEEA creates clothing for andro women by breaking patriarchal boundaries and socially imposed gender roles in non-discriminative ways.

While the clothes are stunning, I find VEEA’s Box non-subscription business model very smart.

You pay $20 for a box of five androgynous clothes you can try at home, money that will be applied as a credit towards purchasing whatever you keep from that box.

EDITOR’S NOTE

Unique amongst androgynous clothing labels, Big Bud Press garments imbue workwear and menswear clothing styles with a rainbow of high-impact hues instead of the classic somber tones.”

Shop at BBP

Big Bud Press is an LA-based brand specializing in unisex clothing for all ages and body types, including those on the curvier end of the spectrum.

I mention that because, sadly, most gender-inclusive clothing brands tend to focus on buyers with slim silhouettes.

Driven by ethical and local manufacturing practices, the brand is sweatshop-free and audits all manufacturing partners.

“While most 69’s garments are meant to be timeless and classic, there’s a contemporary feel to the brand’s androgynous fashion style, somehow meant for the future.”

Shop at SIXTY NINE

“Denim for Everyone” is Sixty Nine (69)‘s motto, an LA-based androgynous clothing brand founded by an anonymous designer in 2011.

As stated by the founder in a Vice interview, the brand specializes in “all-inclusive” clothing:

I’m just trying to make comfortable shit for everyone.

Fun and vibrant, the brand’s agender aesthetic consists of bright, hand-tie-dyed pieces.

Imagine wide-leg trousers, oversized t-shirts, and big Button-Up pieces like a psychedelic version of Missy Elliott’s iconic “Supa Dupa Fly” balloon onesie from the 90s fashion days.

The brand’s collections of gender-free and androgynous clothing are available in limited styles and by ‘digital’ appointment only.

Shop at SHARP SUITING

Since launching in 2013, Sharpe Suiting has been the home of agender fashionistas who want to stand out from the crowd.

“NotEqual’s gender-free clothing lines are shaped to mask the wearer’s gender and blend the socially constructed stylistic boundaries of classic man outfits vs. woman fashion and haute couture.”

Shop at NOTEQUAL

A creation of Fabio Costa, a Brazilian designer winner of the second-place at ‘Project Runway: Season 10‘, NotEqual is a gender-neutral clothing brand from Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

NotEqual mission is to create “Rational Fashion,” a term coined by the designer while trying not to politicize its craft.

While NotEqual’s garments are not cheap, shoppers with a tight budget should start investing in one (or two) fabulous androgynous clothes and start a long-lasting androgynous wardrobe.

Gender Free World

United Kingdom
$$

Gender Free World Androgynous Clothing
Gender Free World Androgynous Clothing – thevou.com

EDITOR’S NOTE

“With some of the fanciest androgynous shirts on the market – designed with gender-neutral sensibilities at the core – Gender Free World aims to fit any gender, age, and body shape.”

Shop at GFW

Gender Free World was founded in 2015 by a group of like-minded individuals who believed that:

What you have in your pants disproportionately restricts your fashion choices.

Nowadays, the British brand creates clothes for all genders, including trans people.

Each shirt design is produced in four body shapes and multiple sizes, aiming to cater to many body shapes – masculine or feminine.

“We are not marching for a genderless world, but show that gender stereotypes limit vestimentary choices.




What Clothes Are Androgynous?

By definition, the concept of androgynous fashion describes the middle of two extremes.

When the edges come together, what does the middle describe?

The binary concept of clothing is outdated within the confines of an otherwise groundbreaking industry like fashion.

Queer and trans people of color have been subverting gender norms for decades.

Sadly, it is taking far too long for society to eliminate gender stereotypes and accept new fashion ideas.

There’s nothing wrong with wearing androgynous clothes, despite many preconceived ideas.

In the past, women were vilified for wearing trousers.

Nowadays, women wearing trousers is the most normal thing you imagine.

Similarly, if a man puts a dress on, it won’t burst into flames; it only looks good.

As the lines between men’s and women’s clothing fade away, the category of androgyny clothing gets harder to pin down.

In the past, it was easy to picture a selection of androgynous clothing (think structured suits, loose shirts, lots of jeans, men’s overalls).

On the other hand, modern androgyny pushes towards a panoply of interconnected yet distinct approaches to fashion.

Final Words On Androgynous Clothing

Thanks to high-profile celebs like Harry Styles wearing gowns or Billie Eilish sporting oversized streetwear brands, the mainstream media is waking up.

Nonbinary runway models like Indya Moore – the first trans person of color to cover ELLE Magazine last year – represent a community that has been flouting gender rules all along.
