Fashion that Blurs Gender Binary

Frills, tights, make up, big hair are traditionally considered feminine but on men can look good! All of the women that look slightly gender bending don't have a top on. This is interesting at it is socially acceptable for a man to be topless and not a woman, even though a lot of the models are so slim they are flat chested. There are so many conventions of what is acceptable to wear for your gender, I want to show these in my designs. Also interesting that most of these inspireing images are black and white. Almost puts them out of context, or a simple natural setting. Need to consider how colour effects connotations of gender.
