cannot stop the skirts, it's addicting

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

cannot stop the skirts, it's addicting

Post by Bamaskirting »

I thought I may take a break from wearing awhile. I had not been out in over a month because I'm busy working.but I was going to take a hiatus because all the tg political garbage that I do not want to get lumped into.
but I just cannot quit it. I finally got one on and made a few stops. I wore 3 different skirts today. I'm going to try to wear one somewhere everyday. in south Alabama I don't think it's the best idea to wear a skirt everywhere. but I keep a few in my car. feels so fun and liberating!

Me too, I have more skirts that I can reasonably wear. I'm not too worried as most of them cost less than $5. I consider it cheap entertainment and a learning experience.

I have pencil skirts, A-line skirts, skater skirts, and skorts. I wear them at home. Where do you wear them? What's been the reaction? What else do you wear with your skirts? Do you wear women's shoes (pumps, flats, sandals?) and what kind of top (male or female)?

I have 26 skirts in all!

Curiosity. Surprise. Nothing to write home about.
What else do you wear with your skirts?
Depends on the weather and where i am going.
Do you wear women's shoes?
No, they'd be too narrow and uncomfortable.
and what kind of top (male or female)?
I did not know that tops, or any other clothes, had sex.
Perhaps you mean "traditionally masculine or traditionally feminine.
I wear formal shirts, t-shirts, pullovers, jackets.

I have a dozen skirts, plain, straight, pleated, denim, knee-length or shorter, none that restrict my movements;
and a dozen tartan kilts.
And I can see no reason to wear anything else.

I wear them mostly at home. But I wear them out shopping at certain locations. I only have one pair of shoes which are Nike. I wanted a pair of mid rise wedges or heels but can't find size. I just wear a men's graphic tshirt.

I have 14 skirts and I wear them all of the time, I wear them shopping, doctors visits, eating out at fancy restaurants, Also at fast food places. In short I wear skirts everywhere. I usually wear a sport shirt, Tee shirt, or tank top in warmer weather.

I have A-line, straight and knit skirts, lined skirts, all of them are knee length or longer. The skirts I own are denim, rayon, taffeta, or cotton.

I've got a pretty good selection going myself. Also have peppered in quite a few blouses and other tops from the "other side". Shoes might be my thing this summer, although maybe just a couple of pair.

Actually my skirt buying has slowed somewhat over the last month or so. I've snatched up so many skirts over the last six month that it will take me at least half way through summer to even wear everything I purchased one time!

Now the BUYING has slowed.... the WEARING of said skirts lives on! :D

I enjoy wearing jean skirts; I have them in short, knee, and ankle length.
I love wearing them around the house, just very comfortable instead of pants.

I would believe that wearing skirts is just "freedom of expression" and would be a positive contribution to society in light of the foolish "bathroom bill" garbage going on. We skirters are not targeted by the anti-TG zealots because we are not transexuals and not trying to present as women. We are certainly not wearing skirts to get access to women's bathrooms! But if we are out and about as guys in skirts it just shows to those who observe us that society is evolving and that we are also expressing who we are, just in a different way from the TGers.

Well, not to boast, but I have somewhere close five dozen skirts. Denim, knit, corduroy, chino, cotton; A-lines and pencils; blue, black, brown, white, navy, olive, tan, plaid, patterned; and in lengths from a 15 inch denim mini to a gauzy, 40 inch floor sweeper. I've managed to wear the majority of the skirts in my collection, and yes, I wear them in public with women's tops and shoes, it's the only way to go for me.

Quite. There are some I wouldn't wear in public (yet) but good cheap fun.
