Abstract

This paper discusses the origins, development, and future trends of unisex clothing. We will analyze how unisex clothing has evolved step by step from the Baby Boom to the rise of feminism after World War II to the Peacock and Stonewall movements to its current growing acceptance from five perspectives. The development of genderless clothing is of course reflected in music, theater, film, and literature, and there is a wealth of written material for us to study. Through an interview with Ms. Wang, a professional in the clothing industry, we learned that genderlessness is not only a notable development in the clothing sector, but is also popular in the luggage and perfume sectors, and can be particularly reflected in the luxury goods sector. This shows that both men and women are more conscious of their own pleasure when it comes to consumption, and that the sense of equality is deeply rooted in people’s minds, and that unisex clothing is just one of the paths that give us an insight into socio-economic development.
