Fashion has always seem to amaze me. Clothes are simply not just clothes, people judge other people on the way they dress. Society for the most part believes clothes represent the personality of the individual. If a person is seen wearing expensive name brand clothing routinely, one may think the person is well off, and braggadocios. When we think of homeless people we think most of them wear dirty dingy looking clothes with holes in them. When we think of somebody in power, such as a CEO , or congressman, we think of a man in a nice suit and tie. But what makes certain clothing manly and other clothing feminine? For some females growing up was hard, because they went through a town boy phase where they wore clothes that were gender neutral, and not generally ladylike.They might have been questioned about their sexual preference, or asked “hey why you dress like a dude all the time”. Same goes to grown woman if she wears gender neutral clothing on a consistent basis, and asks aggressively, one may think she is lesbian, when she can be totally heterosexual. Most boys growing up didn’t have the luxury of wearing clothes that were not seen as completely boyish, or act in ways a lady would act. If a man today comes off the least bit feminine through his clothing, one may question his true sexuality,or even worse his masculinity.The reason I bring this topic up is because of the ideal of skinny jeans. I personally wear skinny jeans(granted not skin tight), and for the longest time it was common conception that tight jeans were reserved for ladies only. Still today, many men and women believes this to be true, but skinny jeans are less taboo now than ever before, but so is acceptance of homosexuality. Is there a correlation ? I don’t know. But, I do know articles of clothing a man or woman decides to wear does not determine how “female” the lady is or how “male” the man is. So I ask you the reader do you think a man wearing skinny jeans makes him any less manlier than a man that doesn’t ?
