5 of the coolest gender-neutral fashion brands
Currently the world’s hottest style icon, Harry Styles has been putting androgynous fashion in the spotlight with his incredible on-stage outfits.
Rocking sequinned jumpsuits, heart print tees and chunky necklaces, the singer is known for his exuberant aesthetic, but these days there’s more to gender-neutral style than just men wearing pink.
If you prefer clothes that aren’t stereotypically masculine or feminine – or simply want to mix up your wardrobe with some new looks – it’s easier than ever to find what you’re looking for online.
Here are five gender-neutral fashion brands to know about now.
1. GFW Clothing
Aiming to bridge the market between traditional men’s and women’s shirts, GFW (which stands for ‘gender-free world’) specialises in UK-made cotton button-downs in bold prints and colours.
Instead of standard clothing sizes, GFW shirts come in one of four body shapes: Alex, Billie, Charlie and Drew, meaning designs allow for larger busts or hips, wide shoulders or straight up-and-down figures.

2. Lucy & Yak
Best known for their uber-comfy Yaks dungarees, which come in a huge variety of styles (long and short, tapered and wide leg, jazzy prints and neutral hues), Lucy & Yak boast strong eco credentials and a vintage-inspired aesthetic.
“Dungarees are the perfect gender neutral option!” says co-founder Lucy Greenwood. “They’re comfy and are an easy all-in-one outfit that anyone can wear, with every one of our ‘dunga’ designs being made with no gender in mind. We believe anyone can and should wear whatever they, as an individual, want to wear!”
Clothing is labelled in women’s sizes ranging from 4 to 32 (petite and tall options are in the works) and the brand has just launched an Ed Sheeran collection of dungarees, hoodies, tees and accessories.

Zoah was founded by designer Danielle St James to cater to the needs of trans women, non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals, specialising in underwear designed for those who ‘tuck’ – but the supportive garments have also been worn as shapewear by cis women.
The brand has now launched its first ever swimwear collection with a pair of power mesh bikinis in black and leopard print, featuring waist-defining, V-front tops and high-waisted bottoms.
Zoah Leopard Print Bikini Top, £32; Leopard Print Bikini Bottoms, £34
