is it permissible for women to offer namaz in gent’s clothes and vice-versa?

Assalam oalaikum,

Narrated Hazrat Abu Hurraira (r.a) that Prophet Mohammad (saw) has sent laanat on those women who dress up like men and vice-versa. Women are not allowed to adopt the dressing style of men. Nor are men allowed to wear ornaments like women. If anyone has the habit of conversing or walking like people from the opposite sex then an effort should be made to control the habit. However, if someone does so intentionally then it will be a sin.
Narrated Hazrat Ali (ra) that Prophet Mohammad (saw) had instructed him to abstain from wearing saffron (zard) color, ring of gold and a kind of silken fabric. Narrated Hazrat Umar (ra) that on seeing him wear two garments of saffron color

Prophet Mohammad (saw) instructed him not to wear saffron color, hinting at the fact that it is the color of kufr.
As we know, laanat is a kind of a curse that implies “being devoid of Allah’s mercy”. Prophet Mohammad (saw) has sent laanat on such people and has condemned them. Knowing this, if anyone still does it intentionally, it would definitely be absurdity.
