Politically Correct Fashion?

Androgyny is in (again) and the fashion world is awkwardly blending into itself. 2010 is has been about recycling the past decades of fashion and then raping it of a sexual identity. Women everywhere are trading in their stilettos for brown oxfords and chopping their locks into short boyish styles. Men are experimenting with eyeliner, growing bangs and stomping down the runways in skirts. Its all of the fugly from the 1970's but more intense and dark.

Why is the fashion scene suggesting that men and women switch roles? Can it be a female empowerment or a way for men to get in touch with their feminine side? I can't answer that but I can say it looks awful!

Hermes Runway^^

We have pop icons like Rihanna, La Roux and even Lady Gaga to thank for inspiring this 2010 scene. I'm so over it. This trend is taking the fun out of being a woman and making men seem unappealing on so many levels. 

 From the masculine shoes to the trousers...I'd think I was in the presence of a college professor not a fashionista. Gag! Oh and it gets better, Raf Simons Fall 2010 mens collection is all about skirts. Yes this androgynous style goes both ways! Ladies now that your boyfriend is prancing about in a luxe skirt and your trotting the streets in your pleated trousers, can you see the irony?

Well to make the best of a bad situation, you can run into your fathers closest and steal some of his shitty looking sweaters and become the trendiest girl on the block. Literally a fashion steal!
