Apparel Resources: Key menswear items for Fall/Winter 2023

Even though western culture has seen skirts predominantly being worn by women, history points towards the contrary with skirts having historically been worn by men in many cultures around the world such as the Scottish kilt or the African dashiki.

But the more recent shift towards gender-fluid dressing has given a rise to men’s skirts as a part of avant-garde fashion.

This non-conformist style features wrap skirts, sarongs and kilts updated with modern iterations such as asymmetrical hemlines, the use of unconventional fabrics such as the ones used in men’s suiting and denim, and bold prints as seen at Dior Men’s Look 8, Etro’s Look 25 and Wales Bonner’s Look 16, amongst others.
That's the extent of the skirts portion of the article. I LOL at the commentary:

"unconventional fabrics such as the ones used in men’s suiting and denim"

Ummm, knock knock - women's skirts have been made of these materials for eons. I realize they mean in relation to men's traditional skirts, but still, silly.

But hey! Skirts are key menswear items, so go forth and wear them.
