Men's Dress Worn By Women

Telemaque Wrote:Once again, if pants were considered to be feminine dress for women we'd see women wearing pants at weddings and proms.

Actually, unless the wedding is specifically black tie or white tie, then it's not a faux pas for a woman to attend in dress slacks. Most attendees in non-black tie/white tie weddings show up in either business dress or "Sunday dress", and women's dress slacks fit in both of those categories. Keep in mind that in a black tie wedding, it would also be a faux pas for a man to attend in a business suit or that hideous blue blazer/khaki pants combo. It would also be a faux pas for someone like Our Grace attend in dress that's more formal or more elegant than the groom's. Which sucks, because the average American groom is married in a lousy penguin tux that I can outmatch in my sleep. (Though, having never actually been invited to a wedding, it's actually a non-issue for me at any rate.)

The following is an example of women's trousers that would be typical to see at a wedding, falling under the "Sunday dress" category (definitely not the same as a women's business suit).

Quote:Mee You's collection can be worn for various occasions, ranging from <b>a family wedding</b> to <b>Sunday church attire </b>[Harlequin: Exactly what I said above]. Each garment's crystals are featured with a sophisticated eye toward making the wearer dazzle with light. By metaphorically weaving these warm ideals into the fabric, the designers aim to create a harmony of stones, textures, and reflections.

Interestingly enough, Mee You is a South Korean fashion company.

There are actually even bridal slacks like these:

That dress was designed by a Taiwanese designer. So it seems that Asians and pants-wearing women are indeed connected, as that other thread implies. It would also suggest that in this department, fashion in favor of women's pants is influenced by Asian culture, not liberal feminism.


:edited to add: And as for all these dress distinctions, I've decided that my wedding, if such a calamitous event occurs, will be neither white tie nor black tie, but a loose definition of <a target="_blank" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Court_uniform_and_dress">court dress</a>. That is, if it's 18th century French, 13th century English, or 8th century Chinese, it's all good, as long as it's decidedly noble.
