Salaam Alaiykum,In principle, it is not permissible for a male to adorn himself like a female. Rasulullah [Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam] cursed a male who imitates a female and he cursed a female who imitates a male. (Bukhari).

The prohibition is general. It includes imitating in everything – conduct and dress. A female adorns herself by wearing a chain. It is, therefore, not permissible for a male to adorn himself like a female and wear a chain. A male cannot use gold. That is for a female only. (Bukhari)
