Men don’t just wear “menswear” and women don’t just wear “womenswear”. The world of fashion no longer forces us to conform and fit into a box where we are solely identified by our sex. The boundaries of conventional “gender-wear” are beginning to diminish while men experiment with trends and prints synonymously associated with women, and women are doing the same.
Men are embracing floral prints, paisley, and bright colors. Things that were once automatically associated with a feminine look, are now an everyday sight in men’s clothing. Though maybe not every man is comfortable with wearing certain prints, one thing he must do is venture outside of earth tones and dark colors.
Author Robert Greene gave some great advice by saying, “In a society where the roles everyone plays are obvious, the refusal to conform to any standard will excite interest. Be it both masculine and feminine, impudent and charming, subtle and outrageous. Let other people worry about being socially acceptable; those types are a dime a dozen, and you are after a power greater than they can imagine.”
