Frilly Frocks (Dresses) For Men
Sometimes a man just wants to wear a dress. Out of curiosity, perhaps, or out of a desire to feel more feminine, or for another reason other mortals just wouldn't, couldn't understand.
The idea of men prancing around in frilly dresses may seem laughable, but there is some solid anecdotal evidence to suggest that more men than we might think could be open to the idea. We've all gone one male friend who tries to put a dress on every time he has a little too much to drink. (At least, I assume we do. If you don't have the 'guy who want to put a dress on, then you probably got 'guy who wants to strip naked and run around' as a trade off.)
Samoans, Japanese and Scotsmen also all often put on national dress that is, in fact a dress. It's only in some parts of the world that we look down upon men covering their bodies in pieces of fabric which lack seams betwixt the thighs. (Oh, and Middle Eastern men often don charming dress type arrangements also, let's not forget about them.) Of course, most of these dress styles do not incorporate many frills, although perhaps you could call the pleats in a kilt a kind of frill. Frills could then, perhaps be considered an 'advanced' form of dress for men, not for beginners or the faint of heart.
Regardless, I believe that there's an opening in the market for man friendly frill dresses. So if you happen to be a man who believes that he would look damn fine in frills, do not be disheartened, there's at least one other person on the planet who agrees with you.

Fancy Frilly Dress
The frilly dress in the picture comes from Sure Shots Fancy Dress UK, a rather aptly named company. The dress is incredibly fancy, not to mention frilly, making it a winner on two counts.
Louise Brooks is rocking this particularly frilly dress in aid of the film "Now We're In The Air". I admire and adore the tutu effect which is created with this piece.
Alesha Dixon wears this stylish couture dress by Giovanni. Notice anything about it? Why, it's a regular frill fest! This dramatic look is also incredibly flattering, as it makes the waist seem absolutely tiny in comparison.
The Frilly Conclusion
Those dresses are a start, but it is important to look for a style that suits you. One man's trashy dress is another mans treasured dress of dreams. Find your frills, gentlemen!
