Jaden Smith recently made news by wearing a dress to the first day of Coachella. This is nothing new. In fact, Jaden Smith has worn dresses before this. Known for his enigmatic yet honest tweets, Jaden Smith is comfortable in his own skin. To him, girls clothes aren’t girls clothes, they’re just clothes.

Which is something more people should feel. There is nothing wrong with a person wearing  “boy” clothes or “girl” clothes. Clothes are clothes, there shouldn’t be a gender put upon them. Personally, I’m all for gender neutral clothing especially for kids and teens.

Jaden is known for dressing androgynously

Many people took to twitter to support and commend Jaden on his style, which is so refreshing to see.

His commentary on the world and the way he dresses shows that he’s not just doing this for attention. It’s also nice to see that his sister is  just as carefree and living life the way she wants to.

It’s inspiring to see young people challenging gender norms and societal norms like Jaden. He can wear whatever he wants, just like everyone else.
