Skirts are regarded as women’s fashion items, whether they are long, short, straight, pleated, or flared. Skirts have been around since prehistoric times. In all ancient cultures, they served as the norm for both men’s and women’s attire. The cassock, kilt, and lungi/dhoti that men have worn in the past are not considered skirts in the traditional sense; rather, they are worn as cultural and vocational garments. We adore our celebrity men wearing skirts, despite the fact that it’s a risky fashion move! What’s not to love about guys rocking skirts? It takes a lot of confidence to pull off such a daring look.
In 2023, men wearing skirts will be the biggest fashion trend. It has always been exciting to see men’s fashion, and this year has shown that everything is possible. Gender-neutral trends have been observed in recent fashion shows. In 1985, Jean Paul Gaultier was recognised as the first fashion designer to present skirts for men on the runways. Men’s skirts have been featured on numerous fashion shows in recent seasons, including those for Thom Browne, Off-White, LV, and many others.
Remember how Brad Pitt made news when he showed up on the red carpet for the Berlin premiere of Bullet Train wearing a brown skirt with a raw hem. This trend is sweeping the fashion industry despite the audience’s mixed reactions to it; some seem to love it completely while others seem to hate it completely.
The ‘Emily in Paris’ star Lucien Laviscount arrived at the Louis Vuitton show wearing a sky-blue short-sleeved sweater paired with a blue pleated skirt with an asymmetric hem worn over zip-fronted wide-leg trousers.
