Sure, we all know the basics: drink water, don’t stay out in sun too long, wear plenty of sun screen etc.—but that becomes all the harder when you’re trying to balance your personal style. FAABS: Besides wearing...

Anonymous asked: Suggestions for androgynous sandals/shoes for the summer?
I saw the scent post and I wanted to note that Victoria’s Secret PINK! with a Splash sounds like it would be the most feminine scent on the entire planet, but they have two that when, at least mixed with my personal scent, actually smell really nice and musky and gender neutral. perhaps others might have the same experience. my favorite is the one with the dark blue cap. a small bottle is...

There are other queer style blogs that I personally follow that have done the whole finding the right scent/cologne. However, Androstyle is going to teach you can make your own androgynous one of kind scent that doesn’t have to put a dent in your piggy bank.

genderqueerfashionista: trashydyke: weirdly super over the “dapper butch/dapper queer/dapperness of any kind” look right now just really done with trying to emulate a certain type of class-reflective status/old educated white dude aesthetic that feels really overdone and not true to where i’m at i feel like in being a butch… totally understand this POV and agree that a lot of quality...

Oh and I’m not finicky about pronouns, but if you can, please use gender neutral pronouns when referring to me (They/zir)! Ok, so enough about that messy stuff about pronouns...

doesntafraid asked: on ways to look more androgynous: one strategy is to mix overtly gendered clothing.
