Men: How to Wear a Skirt

Pants are a great invention for many purposes, but skirts can be a more comfortable and versatile fashion option for men. However, most men have no idea how to wear a skirt.

Since the invention of pants a few hundred years ago, skirts fell out of favor as an apparel option for men durring the industrial age. However, for the first 1,700 years or so since the birth of Christ, men exclusively wore skirted and robe-like garments all the time. For those who aren't toiling in mines and steel foundries, skirts are once again a practical fashion option for men.

Because skirts have been so associated with feminism in modern society, many men are apprehensive to give it a try for fear of what others may think. For those who are able to overcome an unfounded fear of persecution, skirts provide a great new fashion option.

The first thing is you have to understand that a skirt is just a piece of fabric like any other clothing. The second thing to know is that the vast majority of people really don't give a damn about what you wear. Sorry, in most cases, you are just not that important in the grand scheme of things.

Skirt lengths, styles and fabric preferences vary with the individual. There is no right answer to how men should technically wear skirts because there is not a specific trend to follow in Western culture. The good news is that there is no wrong way either (common sense applied). The wearer is free to establish his own style.

Attitude is everything. When wearing any clothing that's not congruent with common fashion, you must act confident about what you do. The proof of the is notion is in the fact that new fashion trends emerge all the time. Trends start because someone, somewhere was confident enough to disregard an obscure social "norm".

On the other hand, you should not be out to do something because you think you're going to start a trend. That just means you are seeking the approval of others to justify your fashion choices. If that's the case, just go to the mall.

Skirts for men in modern Western Society is a tiny niche category that can stir up controversy among family and friends. Again, it's just fabric, not a lifestyle choice. So if it is an issue, tell them to just get over it! And remind them that there is nothing illegal or immoral about wearing a skirt. Men have done so for thousands of years.
