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.


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

2. Men should not wear this.

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