3 traditionally male garments that became unisex

During the last years, unisex clothing has gained unimaginable popularity, and for a good reason. These clothes are usually well-fitting, have interesting designs, and are also very basic, perfect to incorporate in your capsule wardrobe, whether you are a man or a woman. We all love them, but there is so much more to learn about the personality of these garments. Let’s dive into the history of three items that have originally only been worn by men but are now pieces of unisex apparel: 

Denim jeans

Our beloved denim jeans, without which we really cannot imagine our lives, were actually only a male garment. To be fair, it was like this because these bottoms were formerly part of the uniform of workers, laborers, and miners, all of whom were primarily male in the nineteenth century. However, times have changed, and jeans have developed into a garment that neither men nor women can live without since they are so multifunctional, durable, and comfortable. They now come in a variety of cuts, colors, and designs, allowing everyone to choose a pair of jeans that suits them. They’re also easy to match and can be worn all year with a variety of shirts, sweaters, turtlenecks, crop-tops, and other items in both men’s and women’s wardrobes.

Irish Aran sweaters 

Sweaters have long been worn by both men and women, in a variety of styles and patterns. Aran sweaters, on the other hand, were not. These garments originated in the Aran Islands at the end of the nineteenth century, and were traditionally solely worn by fishermen who needed thick, warm, and water-resistant jumpers to protect them from the cold and windy weather at sea. Women began to wear them as well throughout time, and they quickly became an Irish staple. They are currently preferred by both sexes since they are comfortable, warm, and stylish, and they come in a variety of designs. These sweaters, like any other unisex clothing, are simple to wear since they go with any bottoms, whether it is cargo pants or silk skirts. Purchase an wool Aran sweater for yourself from Tara Irish Clothing and be sure that they will look great on both of you. 

Trench coats

We all adore trench coats, especially now that it’s getting colder, and we all agree that a high-quality camel or beige trench coat is a must-have for fall. Few people, however, know why these clothes were created. Trench coats began as raincoats in the second half of the nineteenth century, but it wasn’t until the First World War that they were mass-produced as sturdy and lightweight clothing for soldiers, particularly British and French ones. They were still a widespread part of the uniform during the Second World War and it was during that time when they gained popularity amongst civilians. The design of the item has not changed too much over time, remaining almost exactly the same. Today, coats are a very elegant and protective fall item of clothing that is worn by both men and women.
