Have you ever found yourself buying more Clothes
on the "guy side" of stores? You're definitely
not alone. There's something to be said about rockin' a truly Annie Hall-esque outfit
. Can you be any more dapper when pairing a button-down + vest + tie? Nope! Sometimes stealing your guy pal's shirts is kinda the best weekend outfit when paired with a pair of skinny jeans and strappy wedges. The only problem is that it's sometimes hard to find clothes in men's styles that fit our curves. Y'all know what we mean, here.
So when we heard about the Wildfang
clothing label, made by two awesome badass ladies who quit their day jobs
at Nike to start the Portland-based shop, we were pretty thrilled that unisex fashion
was starting to become a trend. Wildfang isn't the only brand stepping up their game. Here's a few others we've found. We're trying to remember that we can't buy all
of the bow ties (just a few, we swear!).
This brand is based out of Louisville, Kentucky and features clothing that comfortably fits guys and gals. Founder Alicia Hardesty sums her line up pretty well
: "I, like many others, have longed for a brand of clothing that offers something different, clothes that fit real people, clothes that incorporate a style that isn't at either end of the feminine/masculine spectrum, but somewhere in the middle."
Though you'll definitely want to only shop Fourteen for special occasions (they're a bit on the pricey side, as with any custom-tailored company), this is an amazing shop for suit separates exclusively for women and anyone "whose identities lie outside the fits and styles of traditional women and men's clothing." If you'd rather wear a really snazzy suit to graduation or prom, this is your best bet.
This tomboy fashion label from New York seeks to "blur the lines of modern masculine and feminine style," and they're firm believers of high-quality threads without compromising ethics for the sake of quantity. All their clothes are seasonless (aka, can be worn all the time) to keep the "global citizen" in mind. Sweet!
This Santa Rosa-based clothing line offers the most variety of tomboy styles: from t-shirts to bow ties to the more expensive suit separates. The company's goal is to make great clothing for women who are sick of dressing in baggy masculine clothes, describing their items as "handsome apparel for women, butches, studs, bois and transmen." We dig it!
