Switcheroo


Switcheroo

Photography by Hana Pesut

This Canadian photographer's project features some of the most fascinating images I've ever stumbled upon.
In her undertaking, she doesn't only question our society's silly dress conventions, but to a certain degree she also challenges traditional gender roles.
I like the fact she doesn't use models, but just plain, regular people dressed in a regular way, and then, voilĂ !, the switcheroo works its magic: 

1. She wears his clothes: 
Nothing special about that. Females nowadays often dress in a quite masculine way.
But it does bring me to the conclusion that the ladies, no matter how beautiful, look just as dull as the gents in those grey, boring clothes.

2. He wears her clothes:
Now we're talking.
It turns out that some guys actually do look good wearing their spouses clothing!
Admittedly not all of them. 
After all, the apparel's not their size, and the style not necessarily befits their particular body-shape. 
On the other hand, many actually look better in what we arbitrarily call "female" garments than in their own clothes...
Anyways. It makes you wonder:
Wouldn't it be a good idea to perk up our wardrobes with at least a few dresses, some skirts, or at any rate some more colorful stuff?
Shouldn't we switch clothings with our partners more often?

  1. Wow unbelievable.
    It seems his wife's clothes were for him : #3, 11, 14, 15, 18
    It seems her husband's clothes were for her : #3, 7, 10, 11, 14, 15.

  2. Thanks for your comment, my anonymous visitor. I agree with you about those outfits being the ones that "work" better, but let me confess something: I think that ALL the gentlemen above look better in their partner's clothing than in their own. In a few cases, all you need to do is get the same garment but in the right size.
