I’m 17, a girl and from Germany. I love my long hair and my make-up but I have no use for girls’ clothing. I would just really like to wear men’s clothing because I love it. But I am honestly too afraid. First of all, I am too anxious to even go into the boy’s section of the shop. I did it once and everybody kept staring at me while I looked at different clothes, so I ran out of the shop. (It should be added that I kind of suffer from low self-esteem). Secondly, even if I bring myself to buy the clothes I like, I would be too afraid to wear them outside because people could know I wear boys’ clothes or my worst fear would be coming across a man who wears the exact same thing as me. And finally, I don’t even know what my mum would say when I came home with a bunch of men’s clothing. I once showed her a flannel shirt I really liked and she laughed and said no because it looked “too boyish”. Maybe I am a little bit intense and too anxious about all of this but this is kind of a big deal for me and I am just feeling uncomfortable in all of my clothes I am wearing right now. Maybe you could give me some advice.
Clothing is one thing I love! It definitely is a great expressive outfit! And I am a firm believer in finding all the best ways to feel good about yourself! For me that's definitely wearing clothes I'm comfortable in and that I feel amazing in. And by amazing I mean like I can look in the mirror and honestly say "Wow, you look cute today!" Maybe that's a little self centered but I do think it's good to be able to compliment yourself whether it be on your outfit or your smile or your intelligence! Oh and just saying I've totally worn some boy clothing too! There's also a girl I know who totally rocks some men's flannels! I think it's awesome when someone has the confidence to wear whatever they want or be whoever they want regardless of the social norm and totally pull it off! I think it's more than okay to wear some guy's clothing! I hope this helped and good luck! :)
You're allowed to wear whatever you want !! Don't let those people get to you.. They're being judgmental, so just try not to pay attention to them. If you like to wear boy's clothes then that's fine. Don't let other people tell you what you ''have to wear'' and try to be confident with yourself. c:
It may take time for you too come too it but there is nothing wrong with wearing boys clothes. My soster often wears boys clothes because she simply find them more comfortable and she isnt very girly. Its completely up to you what you wear and need to believe in yourself. If its what you feel comfortable and want too wear then i say go for it! No one will judge you i know you may feel paranoid but you will get used to it and realise that people arent actually thinking bad of you. As for worrying about your mum, she will understand she loves and cares fo you and you wanting to wear different clothes wont change that. Be confident and believe in yourself! :)
You wear what you want to wear. You can keep wearing girl clothing and make your mom and everyone happy, or you can be yourself and wear man's clothing and make yourself happy.
And I don't even see the big deal in wearing masculine clothing! It's super confortable and usually they're quite cool. Sometimes I do shop on the guy's section :)
So don't be ashamed, wear what you want and be happy!
