Female modern fashion has always been one of fashion’s great mysteries, but new research by the London School of Economics (LSE) suggests that the answers might lie in the modern male.
“We know that a lot of male fashion designers have a lot in common with women, so we can draw a pretty clear line between the two,” said lead author of the paper, Anna Fergusson, a postdoctoral fellow in LSE’s Department of Political Economy.
Ferguston and her colleagues looked at the patterns of women’s and men’s hair, clothing and hairstyles to discover which modern styles women favour most, based on their own personal preferences and those of their male colleagues.
The findings are published in the Journal of Fashion Research.
Failing to recognise the differences between men and women’s fashion preferences “We think that there’s a lot to be learned from the male and female style preferences,” Ferguson said.
This research is an important step towards understanding the different ways that fashion designers and consumers make their choices, which could inform their style choices and help us understand the preferences of their customers.””
So, we think that in order to understand these patterns, we need to think about the differences that exist between men’s and women ‘fashion preferences’.”

“Fergussan, who has previously worked with the American Institute of Architects and the Royal Academy of Art, said the findings could also help us better understand how fashion trends change over time.”
If we look at what the fashion industry has done over the last 25 years, it’s changed a lot,” Ferrussan said.”
We’ve had women wearing more clothing in the past, women wearing shorter skirts and shorter dresses and women dressing more femininely.
“What’s changed in the last few years is that men’s fashion is becoming more feminine, which is why men are wearing more formal clothes and women are wearing less formal clothes.”
It could be that the fashion trends of the last couple of years have changed, and we’re seeing the return of more feminine styles in the current fashion cycle.
You might have women that like very masculine, but they just don’t have the style preferences for men that they have for women. “
You could have women who are very feminine but don’t like the modern styling of men and men who like the more formal styling of women, and the same goes for men who are really masculine and don’t want their men’s style to look like that of women.”
You might have women that like very masculine, but they just don’t have the style preferences for men that they have for women.
“In the end, it might not matter whether or not a woman has a specific style preference for men or women.
It’s really important to look at the broader trends in style that we see and make choices based on those preferences.”
Ferussan and her team used data from the fashion design website Vogue to analyse the patterns in the fashion and hairstylist portfolios of more than 1,000 men and more than 800 women over five years.
“It’s interesting to see what people who have very similar interests and preferences are wearing and how they’re looking at different types of clothing,” Fermussan told The Independent.
“There are lots of women who like casual, feminine clothes and men that like formal, masculine clothes, and it’s quite interesting to think how the styles and styles of people who are similar in these two interests may change over the years.”
The researchers found that men were more likely to prefer a certain style over another, which they described as a more ‘femininised’ style.
“There are two types of men who would wear the same clothes and styles,” Fercussan explained.
“One is the classic gentleman, and that’s the type that has a more feminine style, which would be the same shirt and tie, but a more masculine look.”
But, the researchers found, “women who are more masculine are more likely than men who aren’t masculine to prefer more formal styles.”
“It’s clear that men and modern women are not very similar, so they don’t fit into the traditional ‘traditional feminine’ and ‘traditional masculine’ categories, so it’s important to understand how this applies to women,” Fervussan added.
“For example, there’s some evidence that modern women wear shorter skirts, which means they’re more likely be seen wearing trousers, which are often associated with more formal clothing.”
But, there are also studies showing that modern men are much more likely, in general, to wear shorter trousers, so there’s no question that men who wear shorter outfits are more feminine.
“Fervusson said women could learn a lot from
