5 unisex clothing brands to shop in Thailand

The lines between conventional menswear and womenswear have been blurred – and rightly so. Here is where you can buy and order unisex clothing and genderless brands in Thailand.

From societal norms to traditional expectations, there are many things that have kept people from fully expressing themselves. Clothing is also one of those things. However, it’s not always so black and white, and luckily many fashion brands have figured this out.

Celebrities like Jonathan Van Ness, Demi Lovato and Harry Styles have been huge advocates of wearing what you want. It doesn’t matter your gender: you can wear a skirt, pants or anything in between. The only thing that matters is your comfort.

Androgynous or unisex clothing started to catch on in Thailand. With several Thai designers embracing the spirit of genderless clothing, here’s where you can shop these collections below.
