When It Was Just Women’s Dress, Now It’s Women’s Fashion
When it was just women’s dresses and skirts, it was a time when you didn’t have to be a girl to wear a dress.
Now, it’s just women wearing dresses and headscarves.
But the dress and head coverings are still very much about the gender binary and what women see as a sign of power, says Jennifer De Leon, a fashion and fashion design professor at New York University.
So when it comes to wearing women’s clothing, the gender lines become blurred.
“It’s an ongoing conversation that is still happening,” she says.
It’s an open dialogue, and I think it’s an important one.””

What’s Next for Women’s Clothing?
It’s not a question of wearing a shirt, but rather, how you dress.
This is a trend for women in recent years, says De Leon.
“We want to be seen as women, we want to have our own voice, and we want our own looks.”
De Leon points to the trend of women wearing pants, shirts, dresses and shoes as signs of empowerment.
“It’s a very inclusive fashion, and one that celebrates the women of this generation,” she adds.
“If they are not comfortable in a traditional outfit, they can go out and buy a new dress. “
“A lot of the new women in this industry are not dressing as women. “
They’re dressing as their best selves.””

De La Rosa says women who are in a formal environment don’t need to worry about whether they’re wearing the right dress.
In a social setting, “the dress has to reflect the individual, the personality, and the time of day,” she explains.
“I’m very proud to be an American woman, and my dress reflects my values.”
But De La Rosa does see the need for more formal, more formal dresses.
“For me, I don’t want to look like someone who’s going to wear whatever it is that they’re going to be wearing.
I want to dress as the person that I want and what I want,” she concludes.
