Why do women wear skirts and men wear pants?

Women wear skirts and men wear pants: have you ever stopped to think about why? After all, if women also wear pants, then why can’t men also wear skirts? Who defined this piece as intended for women?

WOMEN WEAR SKIRTS AND MEN WEAR PANTS

At first, women wear skirts and men pants, but times have changed! Let’s tell how society came to the conclusion that women wear skirts and men wear pants. Has it always been this way? How did we get to gender separation? Can men not necessarily wear a skirt?

Recently, we spoke here on the blog about the history of the origin of human beings to wear clothes and how they influenced the separation of social classes.

In the past, contrary to what many people think, men and women wore a type of fabric that wrapped around the hips.

This fabric was used as if it were a diaper or short skirt – pieces of the male wardrobe of the time.

WHY DO WOMEN WEAR SKIRTS? HOW DO WE GET TO THIS GENDER SEPARATION?

Women wear skirts and men pants: it used to be that way! But due to the emergence of the mount and the need for men to act in wars, it was necessary to adapt to their clothing.

As a result, the cloths they used were transformed into a model that could protect against ticks that lodged in their pubic hair.

First, the piece had the function of covering the entire lower part, as well as bringing convenience and comfort so that they could hunt and go to wars.

Meanwhile, women still wore their dresses and their clothes were not changed, as they did not have the need to leave the house.

Thus, for a long time men started to stop wearing skirts, while women continue to wear this piece.

In addition, he also had a religious orientation quoted in a book of the Bible, which says: “A woman will not wear men’s clothes and men will not wear women’s clothes…” (Deuteronomy 22: 5).

Since then, an aversion has emerged about women wearing pants and men wearing skirts.

WOMEN AND PANTS IN THE 20TH CENTURY

After the First World War, the pants became popular among women because they started working outside the home to support the family.

Chanel, French stylist and founder of the Chanel SA brand, in the 1920s, became known worldwide for being one of the first women to wear pants on a daily basis.

Jeans were created primarily for men and became popular in 1934. Because they were considered resistant, many people who lived in ranches and farms used this piece for its quality.

JEANS PANTS FOR WOMEN

After Coco Chanel wore pants, many women started wearing their husbands’ jeans. The Levi Strauss & Co brand was a pioneer in launching the first line of jeans designed for women with the Lady Levi’s collection.

Therefore, due to this great revolution in women’s wardrobe, women began to feel free to wear pants.

In addition, the taboo created because of this piece was gradually deconstructed and accepted by society. Therefore, the judgments of women who wore pants were less and less.

FASHION OF THE 80’S: JEANS

The fashion of the 80s, was greatly influenced by the jeans movement. It was common to see women combine pants, jackets and other pieces of g female Uarda wardrobe with jeans fabric.

Nowadays, they are indispensable pieces because they present versatility in the composition of the looks, in addition to the great variety of cuts and formats.

In contrast, the skirt was characterized as an exclusively feminine garment – it was not accepted by society that men wore it.

AFTER ALL, MEN CAN’T WEAR SKIRT?

Currently, women’s clothing has fewer rules compared to men’s. In fact, there is a great restriction on men’s pieces, mainly due to the shape of the pieces, models and colors.

For a long time, the use of men’s pink t-shirts was largely rejected by men, who considered the color Pink to be women. But we have already seen an advance in this scenario and many men have this color of shirt in the wardrobe.

Anyway, there is a great discussion on the part of stylists and color fans who see no problem in the variations of tones in the male wardrobe.

At the present time, some brands manufacture men’s skirts, such as: pleated skirts, leather skirts, knitted skirts and other models with different fabrics and cuts.
