Or feel your touch that I adore
It's just a place I'm looking for"

In 2010, the climatic changes and the oil crisis give to the style of the day public transport and equitable division of the resources. Wild capitalism is abandoned with the profit of a Communism concerned by the environment. In New York, the fashion is with the uniforms of the old USSR. Young boy in Central Park: Gabrielle Lys boots, jacket, divided skirt and cap out of cotton and gray color. Rustic buttons ivoir color.

Councils for wearing Skirt.
Correct choose of his Skirt:
Skirts come in all forms and colors. They offer an infinity of possibilities (much more than the trousers). If it is well chosen and harmonized some with other clothing, wearing your skirt makes you part of fashion's cutting edge - part of popularizing this new style for men. And as that cutting edge sweeps through the fashion world, more and more men will be wearing their skirts and the more this clothing will be accepted by everyone. Still, not everyone you meet in the street wil embrace the new look. They may not be open to this new idea and reject this elegant, attractive silhouette. They may associate the skirt with femininity, and your wearing a skirt with "deviance". The key to your new wardrobe is to show signs that you are comfortable and confident. You are male, you like being male, and... you have the heart to show it off in this new way. Accessorize your skirt with large boots, or pair it with a sweater or t-shirt of masculine aspect. A skin-tight t-shirt will showcase your male silhouette (pectorals, shoulders, ...). If you're still in doubt, pick one of our
which will not leave any doubt about your intentions.

Avoid the female Skirts:
At MissingSign we showcase a range of
. The first time you step out in one of our creations, you know you are wearing fashion-forward clothing designed and intended for men, not an adaptation of women's skirts , or with design elements appropriated from them (flowers and lace). Look at how the larges pockets give a much more masculine character to the desing.
Short or Long ?
Any length of Skirt can be appropriate.
Long or maxi Skirt:
It lengthens the silhouette and hides small imperfections. But a word of caution: if you're small: you risk to seem even more small. A long Skirt whose fabric undulates with your walk attracts the eye and will be thus more conspicuous.
Short or Mini Skirt:
A look for the daring and those with perfect silhouettes! we pair a short skirt with thigh high boots, dark leggins, or form-fifting trousers. A short skirt, during the summer, can give the illusion of someone wearing shorts.
The mid-lengths Skirt:
Choice of colors:
Between the two lengths, a mid-length skirt can be a compromise. Accessorize it with boots.
In today's world, men have a very wide range of colors from which to select their clothing. Fashion designers and tailors are constantly introducing new ranges of color for men through their collections. The skirt is no exception to this tendency. Simply choose the colors which you like. We recommend that you start by coordinating with the color palette of your existing wardrobe. If you are not sure, sober colors like back or dark blue will emphasize your male prestige. Avoid wearing more than 4 different colors, shoes and accessories included.
Caution with the shoes:
Shoes get increased attention when you're wearing your skirt. Avoid worn or battered shoes or shoes traditionally seen as part of a costume. Don't wear shoes that are long and frayed, low and without support for your ankles. That kind of shoes was designed only to touch the edge of your trousers. If you dare the skirt, choose shoes with more character. Look for ones which go up on the ankles. In summer, think of sandals like a Romand soldier. For weekends, think hiking boots, or black ankle boots for a sophisticated city trip. But whatever you're thinking, never choose shoes withe pointed toes.
Prepare to go out:
It seems wise to proceed by successive step. Read the councils below:
Know what you wear!
Wearing a skirt requires awareness. Where is the back and the front ? Take care to place the seams on the sides of the skirt on the sides of your body. Getting into a wrap-around skirts is a different experience than getting into trousers. They are rolled up around the hips. That can require little dexterity at the beginning.
Some Skirts don't have pockets. In this case, don't forget to take a jacket or a bag for your car's keys and wallet.
Adusting to your new clothing:
Although skirts can be worn everywhere and on any occasion, some places are more favourable to give you a good experience during your first forays out in your new skirt. Gothic concerts can be an excellent occasion to venture out. The skirted male is already part of the
and you will already find comrades in style.
And to finish...
You are in the street out in your skirt. Be relaxed. People will not have all their attention directed at you. If you are appear timid and lost, others notice will not be a happy one. That's what brings out the critical and disapproving side of people.
And then especially, do not forget that a smile is a key which opens all the doors...

"There is nothing to understand
And that passes the intruder
Who will be not able to await
Because I am only to hear them
silences and when I tremble
Me, I am your different
If we were not from here
We would be the infinite one"
[Tu es mon autre - Lara Fabian]

I believe a man in a dress can be a rakish and extremely stylish look and that it takes fashion-forward trailblazers to help propel this look into the mainstream
