You look very smart. The skirt is a nice contrast with the black tights and boots :wink:

yesterday's outfit for my visit to the VA.

My case worker said it was nice but that I should get some more appropriate (more feminine ) tops
Its no big deal wearing what you want wherever you go - or so I find anyway!
I think the advice is right - a feminine styled top is more tailored and will look less bulky - which is a nicer look I think.
I wear womens tops (although I refer to them as my tops) because I have breasts and mens are just too bulky looking on me - or too tight and baggy at the same time!
I think whoever wears a fitted or straight or narrow a line style skirt should consider a fitted top, such as a clingy knitwear or get a shirt/blouse that is tailored to their shape so it fits them neatly without baggy areas.

I don't get any trouble for wearing a skirt to any appt etc... I get more grief for my high heels. far more when I think about it.

oh and the necklace is great - accessories are fun -and they coordinate an outfit. That works really well in your example!

cheers

I don't know why people feel like they have to critique like that. Oh you should......
(The need to go with feminine tops, or additional, feminine anything)

I had a lady friend I know tell me I needed to start shaving my legs if I was going to start wearing kilt.

Here is the back story.
A while back I wore one of my utility kilts, I wore it to our church's summer vacation Bible school. The theme was heroes of the Bible. So Every one of the staff was dressed in biblical styled clothing. I incorporated my black utility kilt into my costume. By wearing a tucked in black t shirt, tieing a fabric sash about my waist, and by wearing one of the short over cloaks. It partially disguised the fact it was a kilt and t shirt.

After VBS, while we were taking down decorations, and resetting things for Sunday I stripped off every thing except for the t shirt and kilt. Revealing it as such. Now no longer a costume.
At this point in the evening this is where she made the leg shaving comment.
Why would she feel the need to say that?
Personally I don't think she liked my kilt, but didn't want to say that out right, I dont like what your wearing.
So I'll say something else to try to embarrass you.
You need to shave your legs like women do.

Only one other comment from the group of around 15 people was, one guy said that had better be a kilt and not a skirt.

The fashion rules for men's skirts and kilts should be different than womens fashion.

I may wear kilts and skirts. You won't find this guy shaving his legs, wearing heels, tights, makeup, pantihose, or blouses.
Not doing it for me or for anyone else.!

Avoid the middle man, wear a kilt or skirt.

My mother had cure for people like that (at least young people read young'uns) She would take them into the bathroom and wash out their mouths with bath soap. It usually worked and for using bad words she used laundry bar soap. That kept the bad words out of my mouth if there was any chance it would get back to her....

I like the skirt, but it sure was foggy when you took the picture.
