Clothes shouldn’t have a gender attached to them.
I never understood why certain clothes have to be worn by a man and others by a woman. They are just fabric and there should be no distinction. While it is less of a problem for girls since I have spent a lot of my life wearing ‘guy’ clothes. It can however be seen as a ‘weird’ thing when a guy does it. After all how many times have you seen a guy wearing a skirt or a dress?
There really shouldn’t be anything wrong with it though. Kilts are basically skirts and they were first worn by men. And if you look in the history of heels, they were also first worn by men. Although they weren’t the stiletto strappy heels that women wear today, you get what I am saying right?
So honestly I am glad to see someone being themselves on the Internet without feeling ashamed about it. Not that there is anything to be ashamed about. We shouldn’t let our clothes define us. We wear our clothes, they don’t wear us. So people should really stop linking feminine and masculine characteristics with pieces of fabric. And before anyone asks, he is a happily married straight guy. Not that sexuality should have anything to do with what you wear. But apparently, people seem to think it does.
The following is how Mark started wearing skirts and heels.
Old girlfriend in college asked me to dance with her with us both wearing heels. We did this for more than a year. I got very good at walking and moving in heels. Throughout the years, I have worn heels off and on, but not with skirts. I just started wearing heels with skirts in the last 5 years. It was suggested that I would look a lot better in a skirt and heels than pants and heels.
#1 Heels really do wonder the backside.
Take a person with bright green hair. Green hair is not normal. You look up and see this person, your mind tells you it’s a person with green hair, you think to yourself, that’s odd or interesting, then you go back to do what you were doing and don’t give it another thought. I believe this is the same when people see me in a skirt and heels. -Mark
#2 I do love me some high heeled boots.
#3 He even knows how to stand like a picturesque model.
#4 He has some rocker chic getup going on here.
At the end of the day, just be yourself.
If you are asking about heels, then I would say to start with a low heel and work your way up as your confidence gets higher. You cannot be afraid.
Some people are like animals, they attack the weak. Show confidence and show the world you are not afraid and nobody will bother you. The only fear you have is fear itself. Skirts? Just do it. Maybe not with high heels, but skirts are much more acceptable on a man than a man wearing heels. -Mark
#5 I wonder why many of his pictures are against a train track.
I dress like this because I can. Just to be different. I have always admired the women that wore tight skirts and heels. Not sexually, but the power they presented. I don’t dress to be sexual, but to dress like any professional woman would. To me, clothes have no gender. I prefer skirts to dresses.
Dresses don’t allow me to mix the genders. I prefer a ‘masculine’ look above the waist and a non-gendered look below the waist. It’s all about clothes having no gender. -Mark
#6 I am not embarrassed to say I am jealous of this outfit.
#7 Black on black is the way to go sometimes.
I am old enough to remember that in school, the girls could not wear pants. Pants have now become a non-gendered article of clothing. So why can’t skirts and heels be non-gendered? Besides, men wore heels before women did. Maybe not today’s stiletto-style heels, but men did wear heels before women. -mark
#8 Ready for an important business meeting.
I buy most of my heels online so that I can try them at home. This way I can have some shoe time and try going up and down the stairs. Feel how much they slip, the stability when testing stilettos. I’ll also wear them while sitting for half an hour or so. If they hurt right out of the box, then back in the box they go. So having a good comfortable shoe is important, but so is the style. -Mark
#9 He has a bigger high heels collection than me. For reference, I have 0.
#10 A high heel for every occasion.
#11 That lace skirt is absolutely divine.
#12 That pop of color really makes the outfit.
He certainly likes living on the edge.
My favorite is a 5-inch stiletto. I just love the way they make me look and the feeling they give. My least favorite thing is walking on uneven surfaces like a cobblestone walkway or a sidewalk with pavers that have gaps big enough to swallow a stiletto heel. -Mark
#13 Even a casual outfit needs a good pair of shoes.
All the fashion options. With men’s pants, you have just a few color options: black, gray, navy, and brown, and no pants with prints. With skirts, you can add reds, green, brighter blues, floral prints, animal prints, etc. Same with shoes, but then you also have many more styles and heel types. Plus you can wear open-toed shoes when the weather is nice. -Mark
#14 I am really starting to wish I could wear high heels.
#15 I presume he is going to a party.
#16 I don’t even know what to say anymore.
I wear almost exclusively pencil skirts and stiletto heels. I don’t wear dresses as that is not my style, which is presenting as the man above the waist, with non-gendered clothing below the waist. I prefer my skirts at the knee plus or minus an inch or two. My average heel height for a week is around 4 inches. -Mark
#17 Boots are perfect for rainy or snowy weather.
#18 Does he have a matching heel for every colorful shirt?
#19 This simple outfit look perfect.
#20 He honestly pulls off the look.
I feel no different as to me, it’s just clothes. Naturally, on a cold or windy day, it physically feels different. When wearing heels, I feel taller, but also empowered for some reason. In all, maybe having the inner strength to have the confidence to wear non-conforming clothing has also given me the confidence and strength to handle my pressures at work. -Mark
#21 That stance is everything.
#22 Waiting for the bus.
#23 Exactly what that racer stripe needed.
#24 The elegance is off the charts.
#25 Is anyone else getting clueless vibes from this?
#26 The pedicure really pulls the outfit together.
#27 Wear masks and be safe everyone.
#28 I don’t usually like these sorts of prints but he looks fierce.
#29 Everyone needs a little bit of sequin in their life sometimes.
I do this for non-sexual reasons. Men can wear this style without being labeled as gay or queer. I don’t act like a sissy, which is one of the most frequent comments I get from men.
They just assume I’m gay and a sissy until they start talking to me. I am just an average, normal, straight, and happily married guy. I love beautiful women, Porsche, and I just want to incorporate a skirt and heels into my daily wardrobe. -Mark
#30 Not sure about this one, the hoodie really isn’t adding up.
