  1. Totally agree with this, it doesn’t matter whether something is predominately worn by either gender – if you wanna wear it then do so. Just because it’s from a woman’s shop or in women’s sizing or vice versa, it’s not stopping you from physically wearing it. Zara produce plenty of beautiful skirts ANYONE can wear as do most shops.

  3. I think Zara have just jumped on a “trendy” bandwagon to try and score cool points (I’m not saying it’s trendy to be gender fluid, just that there is more awareness and openness about it than in the past).

    By labelling a clothing line ungendered, they’re almost part of the problem in creating a label that people who don’t identify as male or female are trying to avoid.

    In my mind it’s an unnecessary branding exercise.

    • Yeah I completely agree and know what you mean. It seems to be a bit of clever marketing really. Or maybe not so clever as the reaction may suggest.

  4. I love that they’ve come out with an un-gendered range. Yes, female and male body shapes are different and tailored pieces won’t work. But that’s why it’s lounge-wear and people frequently borrow (or down right steal) their partner’s clothes because they’re comfy when they are a looser fit. Of course you can just shop in the opposite gendered stores, but Zara are trying to hit a market who wouldn’t think of that necessarily.

    • I completely agree. I think the main problem with it is that people are complaining it’s not big enough, but I think a move into ungendered clothing is big in itself, whatever the products are.

  6. I absolutely LOVE this post! I buy men’s t-shirts all the time because I hate fitted clothes. I prefer some room for my boobs and belly without making it obvious I have either. I also steal my boyfriends tops and after a while, I don’t even acknowledge that they’re ‘mens’ clothes. They’re mine. I wear them. I feel comfortable and so they’re not gendered to me. They’re clothes. I understand Zara’s thoughts for this line, but I agree it’s just like the unisex range. Clothes that fit both women and men’s body types. Women’s clothes are too fitted for my broad shoulder liking!

    Fab post Tina. Glad I followed 👍

    • Thank you so much! I love the way you put that! That’s exactly what I was trying to put across. Clothes to me don’t have a gender, unless they don’t fit due to body type. So while it’s great thatZara put themselves out there and went for something ‘new’, it’s gonna take a bit more to impress. However, I do think people should see it as less necessary and just go and buy what they like now 🙂

      • I totally agree with you. I think some people don’t have the confidence to go into a different section and buy clothes. Glad I was born without shame hahaha

        • Haha same here! 😂 I think there is that. So maybe take down the signs and be done with it! X
