And his latest fashion statement is keeping true to that mantra: The 16-year-old actor-rapper stepped out in what appeared to be a women's black dress paired over denim shorts in Calabasas, California, and also shared photos of his outfits on social media.
Smith, the son of Jada and Will Smith, took to Twitter Thursday to shoot down restrictive style rules.

Smith has been vocal about his sartorial independence. Earlier in the week, he told fans he went to Topshop "to buy some girl clothes, I mean 'clothes.' "
On Saturday, he shared photos of the long, striped number.
Smith has been flexible in fashion for some time, though, introducing gender-neutral tunics and skirts into his 2013 line of clothes for his own label, MSFTSrep. But his threads stretch well beyond ladies wear. He donned an Iron Man costume to hang out with friend Kylie Jenner in May 2013, then wore a pristine white Batman suit to attend the lavish Italian wedding of Jenner's sister Kim Kardashian and Kanye West last May.
