On Wearing Men's Clothing

After jeans went skinny and shorts became shorter, here comes a trend that introduces a new kind of sexy for bottoms.

Gap introduces the Boyfriend Trousers made for women. I know other local brands available in the Philippines that haven't stopped producing ladies' trousers, so you can easily find a pair if you like this classy trend. These loose pants are actually very sexy, worn with the right tops.

Here are a few tips on how to wear trousers (and still look like a woman.)

Keep it casual by pairing it with flip-flops and a slim-fitting basic top, such as a stretch tee, spaghetti strap top or a tank top (shown above).







Bring it up a notch with a bright-colored ruffled halter top and metallic ankle-strap thong sandals. This look is still casual, but it can take you from a day at the mall to a night-out.




The black cargo pants may not be trousers but they're also loose pants, and they can work for nights out, too. It would look hot with a red tube top and red ankle-strap thongs.



Who says cargo pants can't look feminine? For a look that's girly, sporty and funky, pair cargo pants with a pink ruched top and platform wedges.


Check out department stores (SM, Robinsons, Rustan's) and brands such as Giordano for trousers and cargo pants.

Mahilig ako sa cargo pants. Marami kasi akong "tinatago" e. Pero bibihira lang talaga akong makakita ng mga babaeng magaling magdala sa pants. O siguro kinakailangan ko na lang talagang lumabas sa kabundukan.

Those loose pants are real sexy! I would love a pair... well, probably I need to lose a couple of LBs first, they only look great on skinny people. I just love the ease and looseness of the while and khaki looks you showed.

Hey, that's a good idea. That look would be great for men.

Hey, since you women seem to be making all our clothes your own, I don't think it should be a problem when we take your skirts, dresses, and/or heels.

Hey, since you women seem to be feminizing all our male clothing, I think it's only fitting that we take your dress, skirt, and/or heels.
