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.
so masculine. Brings a tear to your eyes, kinda like
a fart moment in a crowd would.

It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.
If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
