The term gender-neutral has been thrown around a lot in mainstream fashion in the past few seasons, with new clothing, accessory lines and concept stores still being launched under this illusive fashion term.

I, however, am not one of the people who need something to be titled gender-neutral to purchase it. For me, the men's section has never been off-limits when shopping.

Save for some independent brands and, of course, the latest Adidas concept store in London's Soho, gender-neutral is still quite a buzzword in mainstream fashion.
