Legs have been indicators of sex appeal in women for decades. You name it: long legs, big legs, thigh gaps, etc. Men frequently draw attention and are thought to be attractive for having broad shoulders or well-defined pecs. This notion will be supported by a quick glance around the local gym. Men are undoubtedly having a leggy moment, even though pecs are still going strong, as seen on the menswear S/S 2023 runways at Loewe, Emporio Armani, and Rick Owens. Although they may have been neglected, boys are really getting back into showing off their bare legs.
Traditional masculinity is eroding as fashion looks to a future that is more gender-neutral. The best in pop culture and the runway are encouraging men to embrace their flexible and feminine sides as the notion of menswear changes. Dresses have looser hemlines, more flouncy skirts, and more jewellery. Along with wearing skirts and exposing their legs, it goes with the territory. Oscar Isaac, Dan Levy, and other actors are leading the march off the runway by baring their pins in skirts. Isaac dressed up in a grey pleated kilt for the Moon Knight premiere in London in March 2022, while Davidson donned a polished black tunic dress showing off his tattoos at the Met Gala in 2021. Levy appeared at the Emmys.
