I’ve got a foot in both camps. If I dressed to fit in, I’d be in jeans. But women’s jeans, women’s androgynous top, women’s socks and shoes, are my typical male attire. So the only difference would be wearing a wig and breast forms? Maybe a more feminine top? No, I don’t dress that way.
I’ll almost always be wearing a skirt. I go for a walk through my neighborhood wearing a skirt. My top may be an androgynous top or a more feminine top. The hemline of the skirt tends to go up and down with the temperature. I’ll usually wear sneakers on my walk. My makeup usually consists of some beard cover. It may be odd, but it’s become my M.O.
If I’m going somewhere fancier, or when I would go to my friend’s themed parties, I might wear something that stands out a bit more. Maybe it’s a bit sparkly, maybe a bit unusual (such as a maid’s uniform, a quinceanera gown, or petticoats). But other times I’ll dress up but a bit classy while still being venue and occasion appropriate.
