Daring Dresses and Skirts For Men
Wearing a dress when you're a man is always something of a daring proposition. How will you be received by those around you? I believe it very much depends on several factors, including where you live, what you're hoping to achieve with your look and how you carry yourself. I also believe that it is quite possible for a man to wear a dress and look incredibly good doing it.
There are two totally different ways for a man to wear a dress. Neither one is better than the other, but they must be understood as being different none the less. Some men wear dresses because they like the style. They want to appear masculine whilst enjoying wearing a dress. Other men wear dresses because they want to be feminine.
This particular article is aimed at the first group, because there is so little written for them and because they are forever being lumped into the feminine cross dresser category, much to their chagrin. As is well known now, I have a soft spot for feminine cross dressers, but nothing is more sexy than a masculine man in a dress. American author Susan Sontag, said it best when she said:
“What is most beautiful in virile men is something feminine; what is most beautiful in feminine women is something masculine.”
Interestingly, Susan herself was a woman with very strong features, there was a touch of the masculine about her and she was absolutely gorgeous. I think that although men who want to wear dresses purely because they like the style may not wish to evoke a feminine image, they have to realize that they will inevitably do so. Fortunately this is not at all a bad thing. Black text is most visible against a white background, and masculinity is never quite so heightened as when it is portrayed with a hint of contrasting femininity.
Skirts and dresses can both be worn by men, though most men will find that skirts are easier to find in sizes and styles that both flatter and fit. From long skirts which create dramatic straight lines, to shorter skirts which make the summer heat comfortable, men really can take advantage of women's fashions without having to worry about re-styling them for their purposes. Generally speaking, as long as the skirt has enough room in it for a man to take a decent stride, he is going to look quite masculine in it.
So if you're a man who wants to wear a skirt, don't wait another day, there are plenty of guys out there already rocking their skirts and though some women may protest, there are many more who absolutely love it.
