Gender Indifference Towards Dresses

June 29, 2016

Hello, Loves!

How about if men wear maxi skirts and women tops? Or probably have you ever thought of change in  dressing for men and women? If not yet, then start thinking about the same. I know it might shock you initially, but trust me there is nothing to get surprised as what you have not imagined yet is already prevailing in the society. But definitely not at a large scale!

Recently I came to know about a new information about the schools in the UK where “GENDER NEUTRAL UNIFORM” rule has been brought in. The State institutions in the UK have changed their uniform rule for a much more gender-neutral environment. The schools want to be more open to the children who are putting up questions on their gender identity and also aim to prevent discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender pupils. The moment I read this news on The Express Tribune, I was delighted to see the efforts put in by the institutes for the same. Now the boys and girls of the school won’t be identified by the trousers and skirts they wear, but with the gender they want themselves to be identified.

I sometimes wonder why the fashion dresses have been devised separately for men and women? Why men can not have the access to maxi skirts and women tops, while women can adorn trousers and shirts for men? Isn’t this a kind of discrimination towards men?

I remember the scene from the Bollywood highest grossing movie PK when Aamir Khan portrayed the same kinda look, having a men’s coat on his torso with a shimmering yellow maxi skirt under the same and it was manifested that how his view of fashion dresses became a laughing stock for all the local people of the area. The reactions from the local people came out as no surprise to the audience too, as the so-called societal rules permit the same.


Don’t you think so that in spite of laughing on such clothes, these need more attention worldwide? Can such maxi skirts only be pulled off only when you have gender issues? Or should a gender be identified with the kind of clothes he/she wears?

I feel NO… really not!

What UK institutions have introduced, it is really a remarkable initiation! But besides this, I feel the bars or the standards should be removed completely from the so-called rules of the society. Let women tops  and all other women style fashion dresses be open to all and vice versa.

And if you really want to see the picture of the new society then it can not be explained better than this GENTLEMAN of Bollywood. The electrifying Bollywood actor has again pulled off the look flawlessly but not behind the screen. He showed it to the audience as a live performance during one the promotional events of his movie, Bajirao Mastani. Ranveer Singh, the latest heartthrob who always keeps experimenting with unconventional looks, was witnessed flaunting a maxi skirt with a dark maroon sherwani coat and brown sandals. The dashing actor owned the look like a boss and showcased his dapper self effortlessly.


Apart from him, various ramp shows, fashion magazines and tabloids also portray pictures of other men in maxi skirts and women tops. Take a look:

It really excites me watching men in these stylish ensembles. Hope to see the time soon when a new world would be rising and the gender discrimination would be completely eliminated on the basis of fashion, just like it has been eliminated on with other aspects of fashion along with cosmetics and makeup.

Until next time! :)

    That’s a real great initiative of UK institutions and as per you delivering it so well . I rather look at the future with this which influences me to have a deeper look. I am personified to lift up such flawless bottoms. Being a designer it gives me immense pleasure to gain such knowledge about what’s actually this electrifying Bollywood Actor carrying at the premiere of his massive hit Bajirao Mastani. Metro sexuality in men at this time of the century inspires me to design silhouettes like harems and slouchy back. I’m a huge fan of your blog as you excite me to what’s coming next on my knowledge.
    Keep rocking ! (:

    Well said Ankur and amazing piece of information chic chaos. As for me I would love to see more guys flaunting their metro sexuality towards dressing up and be more expressive about them selves. We say that women are mysterious but in fact men are more mysterious than us because i can never know what a guy feels one day whereas for women lot of us dress up according to our mood of the day. *Maybe I don’t know much about this detail but its what I feel*
    And besides be it men or women nobody should be judged by the kinda clothes they wear , this is a free world right!
