Global fashion is becoming more and more inclusive, and Bollywood and Hollywood are leading the way in terms of gender-neutral clothing. With celebrities donning gender-fluid clothing to fashion runaways witnessing revolution, the trend is destined to break gender norms. Here are a few celebs who experiment with fashion and give us some gender-neutral wardrobe goals.
Ranveer Singh has often made headlines for his clothing choices, demonstrating that putting a gender label on a piece of clothing has no meaning. Despite the fact that people troll and criticise him for his attire, Singh will nonetheless walk the red carpet in a frilled skirt and a nose ring, unconcerned about what the rest of the world thinks. Singh wore a 'Shirt on Skirt look' on the GQ Magazine red carpet to celebrate the 50 Most Influential Young Indians.
Harry Styles has become the face of gender-neutral fashion. He has proven that clothes and gender are not always associated, from wearing a dress on the cover of Vogue to wearing sheer shirts, sequins, and skirts for red carpets and his concerts. When he wore a dress for the magazine cover in 2020, he was criticized by many conservatives and celebrities. He continues to flaunt a wide leg trouser, sheer blouse, or tailored suit without giving it a second thought.
Kristen Stewart has come a long way and so has her fashion game. Long gone are the days when only a couture or evening gowns would grace the red carpet, Kristen Stewart showed the power of a subtle pantsuit, or jeans and bomber jacket.

Zendaya has always associated her outfits with her movies and no one can forget her infamous Cinderella gown in the Met Gala 2019. She looked fierce and beautiful in a pantsuit and is a firm believer of gender neutral clothing. In 2017 she came up with her own clothing line “Daya'' by Zendaya, promoting gender neutral clothing.
