Fashion Friday is a weekly meme created by FireStarBooks in order for book lovers to post any fashion related idea or image that they think would be a great match for books on Friday.

Here are my fashion choices for the book, Golden Boy, by Abigail Tarttelin, a novel that comes out in late May, about a boy who is intersex:

Which of the above photos is your favourite representation of androgyny?

Gender is complex. How does gender influence fashion? Or fashion influence gender?

Regardless of your gender, what gender-specific ideas and stereotypes don’t you like and/or hope or see changing especially in fashion?
