In the past few decades, the fashion world has evolved radically with so many changes that have come to stay.
These changes have encouraged both men and women become more expressive with their dress; this is the reason why it is no longer rare, however still uncommon in some parts of the world, to see men adorned in what would traditionally be seen as female or camp clothing.
This forces the social conservatives out there to ask: Is this socially acceptable? Is this the new “normal”? My personal answer to this would be, “I hope so!”. However, when it comes to men wearing, say, dresses or corsets or lace, the general consensus in society is “no”, yet when women wear clothes from the men’s department, no one bats an eyelid. This is where the stigma and denigration towards men’s clothing begins.
