Zara is the latest retailer to embrace gender-neutral clothes. The fast-fashion label quietly introduced a new collection called “Ungendered“ under its TRF brand on Friday.
The collection features 16 everyday unisex items, including plain white T-shirts ($15.90), sweatshirts ($25.90), oversize jogging trousers ($25.90) and jeans ($49.90).
