Not that extra clout was needed, but Harry Styles’ choice of femboy outfits got the media on fire.
In a spectacular tiered dress, the British celebrity’s latest appearance for Vogue brought gender fluidity to the forefront again.
The movement is hardly a new thing, as the LGBTQ+ communities of the late 20th century proudly attest.
Yet, back then, men wearing female clothes had to meet in the shadows in fear of scrutiny from the wider public.
While some aspects are associated with females – regarding how they dress up, wear makeup, or live their lives – femboys identify as men.
To femboys, tight clothes, skirts, nail polishes, and headbands are no longer reserved for women.
So if you have a feminine figure and wear what you like – pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable – you’ll love the following 10 outfit ideas for a flawless femboy look.
Outfit 1 Inspired by LOVERBOY
By designing skirts for men – riffing on the classic school uniform aesthetic – and placing socks out for all to see, Loverboy is pushing stylistic boundaries in significant ways.
Regardless of whether you’re a man or a woman wearing playfully detailed long socks and a mini skirt is always a statement in itself.
Founded by Charles Jeffrey in 2015, Loverboy is channeling a distinctive London fashion style in its unique collections – that take the industry by storm.
Awarded the British Emerging Talent prize at the 2017 Fashion Awards and earning the prestigious LVMH Prize nomination, the label is known for stepping away from gender constructs instead of playing and bending them to its will.
At Loverboy, designs aren’t specifically female clothing or male clothing but a new ‘body language’ fashion style.
The brand promotes self-expression and freedom by encouraging anyone, from transgender people to guys with feminine figures to wear what makes them feel good.
Outfit 2 Inspired by LIAM HODGES
Giving us unisex fashion at its finest; shorts, crop tops, and boots combo is an eclectic fusion of masculinity and femininity at the hand of Liam Hodges.
Breaking traditional norms and offering attitude with a cowgirl twist, this is a label for those that are equally bold and cool.
Founded in 2013 by Liam Hodges, the eponymous brand gathers all that’s unique and beautiful about London’s vibrant streetwear scene and subcultures and puts a luxurious spin on it.
Serving the ‘online born generation and what it considers to be a success, Liam Hodges is a brand that will appeal to anyone who goes against conformity.
Growing sustainability efforts are also at the core of the brand’s philosophy, as it continues to review old practices to create less waste.
Outfit 3 Inspired by ARIES
If you’re not against flashing some skin, then Aries’ collection of sheer numbers is guaranteed to land at the top of your fashion wish list.
From mesh dresses to bodysuits and sexy panties in girly colors to the cutest panties with logo detailing, this femboy clothing label is here to dress the bold.
Renowned for its subversive approach to fashion that originated from London’s unapologetically non-conformist rave culture, Aries is a household name on the British fashion scene.
Led by Italian-born and English-based Sofia Prantera and having achieved a cult-like status among aficionados of the alternative, Aries’ pieces cater to both men and women who seek self-expression in the most daring ways.
Outfit 4 Inspired by ART SCHOOL
To those with preferences for panties, bubble butt cuts, and chest-ambiguous outfits, this femboy label has it all.
If you’re looking for an outfit that merges the line between elegant and relaxed, then this combination of a long shirt, loafers, and a shoulder bag nonchalantly slung across the body will hit the mark on the dot.
Founded by two fashion and art graduates, Eden Loweth and Tom Barratt, ART SCHOOL has become a name in the fashion scene thanks to its rich, genderless collections.
Continually aiming to push the limitations set by ready-to-wear fashion, the famously subversive label celebrates queer style and self-expression while creating genuinely wearable art pieces.
Outfit 5 Inspired by NICOPANDA
An excellent label for femboy clothes; long shirt dresses, shoulder bags, loafers, tucked-in T-shirts, skirts, and shorts.
Fashion critics opinion keeps changing about tuck-ins, but in the world of Nicopanda, they’re definitely in.
Whether slipped into high-rise shorts or skirts, a statement T-shirt is always a shortcut to an impeccable casual style.
The brainchild of Nicola Formichetti, the New York-based Nicopanda label, has a serious following considering how casual its clothes are.
Gender-neutral and unique in its daring cuts and bold colors, Nicopanda’s creations disregard the norms of what’s masculine and feminine.
In some sense, the label’s femboy clothing pieces let your personality take center stage quickly.
So, if you want to make a strong statement about fashion and lifestyle, you’ve come to the right place.
Outfit 6 Inspire by CILIUM
A fitted tank top and a perfectly cut pencil skirt from softer material are a duo that will have your body on full display.
Throw in a pair of attention-commanding heels, and you’ll own any room you walk into.
And that’s what Cilium wants you to do whether you have a feminine body or not.
Cilium was born in 2009 as a shared idea of two dear friends, Tilly d Wolfe Lapidos and Thom Barranca.
Initially known as TILLY and WILLIAM, the brand creates fashion to tackle social and environmental issues facing the modern world.
Genderless in its creations, Cilium is inspired by the idea of transformation and innovation – something that’s reflected in its distinctively fashion-forward collections.
Outfit 7 Inspired TELFAR
Sometimes, if your outfit is simplistic, a statement bag is all you need to take it to another level.
Case in point: the boldly colored Bushwick Birkin bag from Telfar, serving practicality, style, and brand recognition at once.
A pioneer on the gender-fluid fashion scene, Telfar Clemens has been creating genderless apparel since 2005.
Winner of the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2017, the label has icons like Oprah or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flaunting its designs.
With pieces inspired by the founder’s New York City childhood, the brand boasts rare femboy clothing with a motto that reads: “Not for you, for everyone.”
Outfit 8 Inspired by LUCY & YAK
Start your summer wardrobe correctly by adding this unapologetically flashy pair to your repertoire.
Dungarees are wonderfully gender-fluid on their own, but at the hands of Lucky & Yak, each piece receives a playful update in the form of bold patterning.
There are so many things to love about Lucy & Yak; it is ethical, sustainable, and fun for once.
On top of that, it offers a vibrant selection of gender-neutral trousers, boilersuits, and outerwear for the fashionably rebellious.
Outfit 9 Inspired by ASOS
Whether you wear lip gloss and subtle makeup or have a full-on figure with corsetry, you can always take extra steps to augment your attractive feature.
For example, the combo of a cropped top with a pair of skinny jeans and a Daytona Beach ‘effeminate hairstyle’ never impresses.
If you’re into showing skin all over, the mesh option I have selected here might be the right choice.
An outfit built around a cool cropped top will never fail to impress, and for a selection that caters to the needs of the fashionably forward femboy look, ASOS is the most affordable place to check.
ASOS pioneers fashion inclusivity on a larger scale, so it seems natural that it stocks gender-neutral clothing too.
The ASOS x GLAAD collaboration offers basics, loungewear, and bright co-ords, allowing you to take a fashionable and affordable step towards gender-fluid fashion.
Outfit 10 Inspired by NO SESSO
A brand for those with a feminine figure looking for brighter colors, sweatshirts or hoodies made from soft cotton and similar sexy material.
You can never have enough oversized hoodies and sweatshirts – two pieces with gender fluidity written into their stylistic DNA.
For pieces that put a fashionable twist on the tried-and-trusted sports-inspired staples, turn to No Sesso and its vibrant selection of femboy wear.
No Sesso’s fashion agenda is explained in its name – it means ‘no sex’ or ‘no gender’ in Italian.
Founded by Pierre Davis in 2015, the brand challenges the norms of ready-to-wear fashion.
It empowers people of all backgrounds and identities, making non-conformity and inclusivity a powerful message you can reflect through clothing choices.
I hope you like these femboy outfit ideas if androgynous clothing brands are something you’re interested in.
But don’t forget that style is first and foremost about personality.
Mixing and matching various separates can yield fantastic results, so get ready to start your fashion experiments, and don’t be scared to show the results to everyone.
