Los Angeles, July 28 (IANS) Singer Will Young says he is comfortable having dresses and skirts in his wardrobe as he insists men can wear traditionally female clothes and still be “masculine”.
The “Love revolution” crooner has developed a passion for the common female garments and his favoured frock is the “tea dress”, which he says is very “flattering” to his figure, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Young makes the dresses “manly” by accessorising them with boots and the right jacket.
“My (fashion) discovery is dresses and skirts. Men can occupy a dress and skirt and actually end up looking more masculine. I promise.
“The catwalks have been awash with them for the past two years. I like to anchor a tea dress with boots, and I often throw a jacket on top so the look isn’t so in your face. A tea dress is very flattering for a bloke. The key is remembering to keep it manly,” he told the Sunday Times Style magazine.
The 36-year-old star, who first found fame on TV talent show “Pop Idol”, has also given his top tips to men, who may want to include skirts and dresses in their wardrobe but doesn’t want them to compromise on their masculinity.
He said: “Don’t go for highly feminine colours. Rummage around vintage shops or just walk into Gap. And Muji is great for simple styles for the smaller man. Honestly you wouldn’t believe how free and manly you feel in a skirt. I mean, the Scotts wear kilts and you don’t get more manly that.”
