Petticoats are a form of lingerie, albeit not one that is often mentioned in these modern times of thongs and visible panty lines. Indeed, the modest petticoat has in many respects gone the way of the steam engine and polio. However it is still possible to buy adorable petticoats from Leg Avenue, fluffy, frilly, lace filled garments swirling about your upper thighs. They’re as dramatic as they are feminine, and if you’re looking for something new to adorn yourself with, they might be just the ticket. I’m featuring a range of Leg Avenue petticoats today, from naughty little short petticoats that barely cover one’s derriere, to romantic knee length garments. The links below correspond to the petticoats shown above reading from left to right (and top to bottom for the middle two.)

Givenchy has picked up the torch of skirts for men and flown it high in its Fall / Winter collection. Not content with putting a solo skirt in there for a bit of gimmicky androgynous draw, skirts make up around half of the men’s collection, along with feminine jewelery, and shoes styled to look like strappy women’s sandals, sorry, correct that, strappy velvet sandals that are unashamedly for men!
Now here’s a question that besieges men who like to wear skirts and other items of women’s clothing, if a man is wearing a skirt, who wears the pants? Is it the woman? Is the woman to be forced to wear the pants? What if the woman doesn’t want to wear the pants? Clearly, in any relationship, there can only be one skirt and one pair of pants, it has been that way since time immemorial, indeed, many scientists believe that the big bang erupted into a pair of pants and a skirt.
Men’s fashion is fast becoming a delicious minefeild these days, especially with the slow trickle of skirted fashions into the mix. As something of a comprimise for men who are used to bifurcated garments, many designers and retailers are now putting out men’s skorts. What’s a skort? It’s a cross between shorts and a skirt. Outwardly, the man looks to be wearing a skirt, however, under the skirt, there are a pair of shorts to allow him to keep his modesty.
