Friday’s Fashion Dating Do or Don’t? — Men Wearing Skirts

Posted by

By Juliette McGough

The other day, I was walking down a busy street in Los Angeles and passed a man who was wearing a skirt, or a towel, or a kilt… no I am pretty sure it was a skirt. I cannot believe the next trend that is going to take over for spring is the skirt for men. As a woman, I love skirts. I think they show off my legs, they help keep me cool during a hot summer and they make me feel very feminine. I understand that sometimes men want to embrace their feminine side; they can get a manicure, spend an absurd amount of money on a haircut or spend a weekend watching a Sex and the City marathon. However, I think that skirts for men is taking femininity to an extreme.

There are plenty of women out there that do love a feminine man. They appreciate a man who can enjoy the same activities, and now enjoy the same clothes as well. Women can appreciate a man who has the balls to wear a skirt. That type of courage can really shine through in a man, and maybe even shine through the fabric of his skirt. While on a date, do both woman and man cross their legs?

Skirts for men are becoming so popular that they can easily be found in a mall. Which gets you thinking about what kind of man would wear a skirt. Can you see a teenage boy sporting a skirt? Can you imagine your father wearing a skirt? Can you imagine a professional football player wearing a skirt? No way. Skirts don’t seem to compliment masculine legs the way an expensive pair of slacks do. Foreigners seem to be the only men who can make a skirt look good.

I cannot imagine dating a man who wears a skirt. Dating him would make me feel like less of a woman. We could literally wear matching outfits, shoes and handbags on a date. Men wearing skirts reminds me of some of the men that I see, and are great, during Pride parades or Halloween. However, if I wanted to date a man that made me feel like I was at a Parade or Halloween party everyday I would have picked one up last Halloween.

I believe one of the top reasons men would love skirts is because it makes it easier for them to get laid, or at least get in “quicky.” If men could give up a little bit of their masculinity to up their chances of receiving a blow job in the car, they would do it in 1.3 seconds.

    Hey, mam, what world is you living in? Are you afraid of your femininity being worst than your boy friend’s? Maybe you don’t know that brave men who aconquered half world in the past weared skirts. Maybe you don’t know that more than 70% of living male in the world use skirt in daily basis. Please wake up!

  • New York Times, October 31, 1881, page 6—“The wearing of trousers by women would be an intolerable shock to the public nerves.”  Grow up Jennifer.  Freedom of dress is a human right.  You’re saying “only females are human.”  Stop LYING, Jennifer!

    yea,so what,he was wearing a skirt.Do we say “oh my,she’s wearing pants” ? nope..I wear a skirt everyday,to work and when im not at work.I am just the
    same person as if i was wearing jeans,which i dont wear but maybe once a
    month at most.You should try it some time,then you would know why guys
    like skirts.And just a FYI,women adopted the skirt from the mens
    wardrobe,AND it wasnt until the 1930’s or so til women wore pants when
    women first started wearing pants,and they had the risk of being
    arrest.Do a google search on the history of the skirt.Dont be
    affraid.And most women like to see a guy in a skirt.As of last night i
    was standing in line at the cash register,the was a woman behind me and
    she said,” i really like your skirt” i then said ” thanks”.I told her
    “im was tired of just wearing pants”,she then said

    “i dont blame you,skirts are much better”….so give it a try,you will see what i am

    Wow I can’t believe how bias your writing is. First off males have worn skirts for thousands of years and before woman adopted them. I am a man with a girlfriend a kid and two step kids, I live a normal life , I am also a afghanistan veteran, a ex corrections officer, I lead by good examples and I do not follow what most people do, because their wrong. Most countries in the world, men still wear skirts or similar types of garments. I do consider myself a man and until you become god or do what I have done, you have no right to belittle anyone. I only wear a skirt nothing more, and those whom do….well thats their choice. Good luck and explore the world, because your blind and ignorant.

About Jennifer Kelton

Jennifer KeltonI did not wake up one morning and say “hey I think I’d like a man use my sweater like a towel, write a candid dating book, become a dating expert, the CEO and founder of a social dating site and have three blogs.”

All of this has happened in a slow burn and here I am. The good, the bad, the mistakes, way too many tears shed to count, lots of wine and oh my goodness a huge learning curve that leaves me much of the time saying, “I’m sorry but this is all new to me.”
