Women wearing men's clothing

Q: Would it be permissible for ladies to wear:

1. Sweatpants that are meant originally for men but if one is wearing it one would not be able to discern whether it is meant for a man or a woman?

2. Socks that are meant for men but are of the colours pink and light blue and if one is wearing it, it would look like womans socks.

A:

1. It is wrong for women to wear such clothing.

2. Men should not wear this.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
