Oh, the long list of songs about women impersonating men…Let’s begin shall we?
- Do it Like a Dude - Jessie J
- If I were a Boy - Beyonce
- Like a Boy - Ciara
I can keep going…not really. I’ve been racking my brain (and google) for the last 2 minutes and can’t think of any others but hey, thats okay, because as they say “Two’s company, three’s a crowd.” BAM. There ya have it. That list is pretty crowded if you ask the wise folk who create such intelligent quotes. Point being: there’s something interesting, fascinating and really really cool about women impersonating men. If Beyonce wrote a song about it, pffff, it’s gotta be a big deal, right? RIGHT. LEFT. To the left to the left everything you own in a box to the left.…..(that just happened.)
Androgynous dressing is not something new and groundbreaking. We’ve seen our dose of oxfords, brogues, “boyfriend” blazers, “boyfriend” jeans etc. etc. But watching the Fall 2012 runway shows, there is no sign of it slowing down. I’ve been seeing a ton of man-tailored clothing, manly handbags and masculine slippers, lace-ups and loafers.
Below are my favorite IF I WERE A BOY picks:
