In fashion today, the new androgyny is so much more than women dressed as men or vice versa.
It's a blending in current fashion trends of the lines between what's acceptable for each gender.
By now, we're used to seeing Marc Jacobs in skirts and Diane Keaton in menswear: these are two examples of creative types pushing the boundaries of what's acceptable.
There's really no androgyny in men adopting women's wear or women adapting men's wear when the wearer retains distinct gender identity. After all, who would mistake Diane Keaton for a man even if she's wearing ties and a hat?
The line between genders becomes blurrier with male "supermodels" like Andrej Pejic, who walks the runway in womenswear. His gender identity is often ambiguous, although sometimes designers like to show off his male parts for shock value.
But, again, we're used to seeing men dressed as women. Heck, our generation brought that in with Steven Tyler and David Bowie and their gender-bending wardrobes.
But in many current fashion trends – especially in the youth market – there is a total absence of gender identity.
Oxfords? Nerd glasses? Tattoos? Knit caps? Plaid shirts? Ripped jeans? Boys and girls both wear the same looks.
Fashion today has evolved to the point where just about anyone can wear just about anything.
Even the last bastion of manly dressing – the western market – is seeing some feminization in trends, as things like flap pocket jeans for men have become acceptable.
The good news if you don't like all this gender ambiguity and androgyny? Know that it will change. Fashion tends to swing in one direction, then the other. So look for an onslaught of flowers and frills on the runway soon…
