This is going to be a thread dedicated to Androgyny coming from it as a male,
over time I have collected inspo and through trial and error have found a good basis for assimilating that into my regular style. There are always new threads asking the best way to pull androgyny off, I want explain androgyny clearly in relation to how I see it.
I'm not claiming that this way is the best way, there is obviously many ways of achieving a particular look in fashion. I'm not saying you should copy this but rather take aspects and build upon your own knowledge.
This is a teaching thread, not a discussion on gender fluidity or a place to throw around unsubstantiated insults. I'm trying to do this for the betterment of the board. b chill
I'll cover this in sections but I will probably add more as I go seeing as I do not have a set plan:
>intended silhouette and colour scheme
>Staple items for your wardrobe
>attitude and posture
Firstly you need to be skinny,
This is because its easier to hide your masculine frame under clothes and disguise your frame to make it less clear of your gender. Also being slim is a much more feminine quality then it is masculine. This means that you want to avoid working out and any exercise you do you want it to be calorie burning and not muscle gaining.
This includes long walks, long-distance runs, core-body exercises and long distance swimming. Anything which builds arm or creates large leg muscles is to be avoided, or to be do lightly.
Yoga and Zumba is also a good option to create a slim feminine profile.
Your weight should be below 20 BMI and should be made of as little muscle as possible. If you have failed this part then you should stop pursuing this style until weight loss.
you need clear, clean skin. I don't believe you should wear makeup. This is because it makes it too obvious what your trying to achieve as well as putting you more in the cross dressing category. As a result you need to try and put forward the idea of the perfect skin that makeup can provide for woman.
To do this you need to wash your face with soap every day, moisturise often and exfoliate once or twice every week. If this causes you skin problems then make your own treatment but make sure to make your skin is blemish less (as blemish less as possible).
The second aspect is stubble control. Shower in the morning, shave straight after. you never want stubble, it looks horrible for the look we are trying to achieve. you should give up completely if you leave the house unshaven. If you grow a beard so quickly that you get a 5 o'clock shadow then shave at lunch or admit that your probably to old for this look.
for gods sake pluck your eyebrows, they dont need to be small, perfected lines that you see on woman because that would look ridiculous but they have to be clean and tidy.
This can be achieved through plucking any hairs which are outside of the main area until they are satisfying dense. at the ear end make sure they point and if in doubt find some inspo and try to imitate that as well as possible.
You can always grow out long hair which will make your androgyny more pronounced but I understand many people don't want this, myself included, As a result I suggest either an undercut or pixie cut. But be warned this does not work as well on men as it does on woman in the androgyny aspect. This is because men are expected to have short hair so unless you have a very pretty face with pixie like features it will probably disappoint you a little. However it still conveys the idea your putting forward better then any other style of short haircut.
The main goal that you want to achieve here is hiding your masculine body and wearing feminine textures while putting forward a feminine silhouette without actually wearing anything that is labeled as womans. wearing actual woman's clothes is not always a good idea because the fit comes off as awkward. due to our lack of breasts they often droop under the shoulders and away from your armpits.
Instead try to stick to wool and fleece for your tops these are both non-aggressive and thick. Thick, lumpy jumpers will allow you to better play with your proportions and hide your manish ribcage and shoulders. You also want to go oversized as it will appear to make your shoulders less broad and will allow you to put forward more feminine proportions (the way oversized clothes rest on your waist will hide your narrow hips). This is vitally important when wearing skinny jeans as I will get to.
This is a good example even though he, himself isn't androgynous, the sweater still gives that impression
Here I haven't found any other good option but skinny jeans, mens legs are not particularly different from woman's if you are skinny enough and it will also hide your leg hair (which you should at very least trim for your own sake) but it is also a staple in woman's fashion. classic black leggings can be imitated by very skinny, black jeans.
If your wearing baggy jeans be careful to make sure you have your fit completely on-point because its hard to pull off. If you're wearing shorts you must ensure that they are the right length (which you should base off pre-existing woman's shorts that you have seen/which inspired you) and your legs are shaved (or v. closely trimmed).
essentially you want to follow basic bitches here. Find unisex clothes that more woman wear then men. Also avoid anything which has connotations of tech-ware or sports-ware which are two areas where men are dominant. Were looking for that cute vibe. You may see thousands of woman everyday in Nike flyknits + free runs but they're also wearing skin tight clothing which we can't pull off with our figure.
As a result the best shoes I have found are:
Dr. Martins (1960 and 1901 with yellow lines)
they have a huge following among woman's fashion but also a strong representation from feminine men.
White hitop Converse
a staple of basic bitches but also an unisex shoe
despite being the new memes are a great option because the blunt nose stops them from looking like clown shoes for us with big feet.
Big olive/khaki parkas are great
Coloured overcoats cross both genders quite well. avoid black because black is a far to aggressive colour and has connotations of men in business suits which is something to avoid
Cardigans, because of how sleek and slim they are they can be hard to pull off if your body isn't perfect but they look really nice and are obviously extremely feminine
Obviously all colours are acceptable but as a general suggestion I think Palewave is a safe bet for constructing your fit as it has a very non-aggressive feel to it as well as being worn more by woman. Saturated colours should be mostly avoided unless they're used in a ironic sweater because they are quite loud and are often worn more by men then woman. Monochrome is also good but make sure that your fit does not come off as arrogant or aggressive as they sometimes can.
I think that just about finishes what I would like to say, If you have any questions ask away or if you have anything to add then please contribute. I'm tired as hell now but Ill dump the rest of my inspo later in a couple hours
cool thread, nice intro to andro
I'll post the rest of my inspo now
low tops work, I only mentioned hi-tops specifically because I see more of them around
yeah there is a lot of overlap between the two. twinks often try to look androgynous, its part of the culture
you can be short to pull this off, just not stumpy. It depends on your facial features but short people can do a much more convincing job imo
i am going to be perfectly frank
i would be very surprised if snow wasnt a cointelpro agent of some kind using /fa/ as means of estrogenising and pussifying boys that are already vulnerable to this kind of brainwashing.
i request this agent be banned.
time to counter this homosexuality psyop by posting some beautiful ladies.
beautiful ladies that you wont get looking like a 12 year old girl, women want strength, even if some, and the media, like to pretend they dont.
this is an outfit that works well for men as well as it covers your adams apple
dressing like you recommend is only going to land you mentally and physically ill 'feminists' and women of ill repute.
girly men>>>masculine women
