16-Year-Old Jaden Smith Likes to Wear Women's Clothing-- You Got a Problem With That? (PHOTO)

jaden smithDid you catch what Will and Jada Pickett Smith's 16-year-old son Jaden wore yesterday? A dress, of course. The teen rocked a black woman's dress over denim shorts with a white sleeveless top like it was no big deal -- probably because to him it's not. Here he is wearing another dress to go hiking in Malibu with his friends earlier this week.

Smith has been flirting with women's clothes. Recently he tweeted a selfie joke from TopShop that says a lot about his style philosophy.

Went To TopShop To Buy Some Girl Clothes, I Mean "Clothes"

Right? I mean, how long have women been raiding menswear, and we're considered chic for doing it. Meanwhile it's not been so easy for men to cross to the other side, though not for trying. I know a few guys who tried to make women's clothing a thing in the 90s. But Jaden's generation could be the one to blow it up. It's all just clothing! Who cares which gender it was intended for.

Not that Smith is unaware that he's being provocative. I think he knows, and he's enjoying that -- like an ordinary teenager would. And his peer group (other rich kids of bohemian-leaning parents) are probably supportive. He might have a harder time pulling this off in a small-town high school in a more conservative area.

Would I be okay with my own son doing this? Sure. With hair going all the way down his back he gets mistaken for a girl all the time and couldn't care less. He doesn't want to be a girl, and he thinks people who mistake him for a girl are kind of dumb, but it doesn't bother him at all. Maybe it's because he hasn't hit puberty yet. 

Anyway, youth is all about experimenting, and clothes are just a fun way of doing that. But I also think what we're seeing is the future. Maybe someday men in dresses will look utterly ordinary.

Would you be comfortable with your son dressing this way?
