Gowns for Guys—The Latest Men’s Fashion Trend?
Men's fashion is having a moment—a feminine moment, that is. First it was the concept of mantyhose (pantyhose and tights for men that took a popular turn this spring) and now men’s fashion is taking yet another influence from the ladies -- this time, in the form of dresses.
During Australian Fashion Week this past week, menswear designer Injury attempted to branch out the world of male fashion by debuting several man dresses down the runway.
The printed and patterned dresses were accessorized with—what else—jackets and leather cuffs (naturally).
But this surprisingly isn’t the first time men have sashayed down the runway in clothing traditionally worn by women. According to the New York Times, during New York’s Fashion Week this spring, Russian menswear designer Alexandre Plokhov sent his male models down the runway in long skirts and hair extensions, while designer Paul Marlow had his male models accentuate their look with eye liner for the Loden Dager show.

I find the comments about heels quite hilarious. It was men who started with high heels...ever hear of the phrase "Well heeled"? The heels got taller with status. Men stopped wearing them due to war breaking out. Remember history a little.
These models' expressions say nothing. Female models use the same expression when they're on the runway...regardless of whether or not they like the outfits. Lighten up a little and stop being so judgemental.
Oh Oh look at those Black Leather Wrist Bands.

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
