Females wearing clothing that resemble males clothing

Q: There is a certain brand of jackets. The males jackets and the females jackets look extremely similar, with just a difference in the stitching.

1. Will a female wearing such a jacket be considered as imitating a male in dressing?

2. Is it permissible for females to wear tekkies?


1. As far as possible, the clothing of a female must be distinct from the clothing of a male. Resemblance has been strongly forbidden.

2. As above.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
