Most of the articles in fashion magazines might relate to women’s fashion, but that doesn’t mean that men’s fashion isn’t important, too. We’ve put together this guide to help men who are interested in finding the right style for their size and body shape. For all men, it’s really important that you wear clothes that fit you properly. If you wear something that’s too small, you risk looking bulgy and big, whereas something that’s too large will swamp you in all the fabric.
If you are a larger man, then you should stay away from horizontal stripes as these can make you look round. By contrast, vertical stripes on shirts will have a slimming effect. You should also stick to single vented jackets rather than double vented, as this will help stop attention being drawn to a large rear. It’s also a good idea to wear monochromatic clothes, such as dark pants and a light shirt as this will create a better silhouette.
Larger men should also avoid turtlenecks as this can make you appear to have more chins than you actually have. Wearing V necks is good as it helps to make your neck look longer and if you go for sweaters and tops with long sleeves, then this will also help to create a sleeker silhouette. It’s also advisable that you stay away from large, bright printed shirts as these can draw attention to your belly and wearing a belt helps to give you more of a waist.
For skinny men, it is in some ways advisable to dress in the opposite way to larger men. For example, skinny men shouldn’t wear vertical stripes as they’ll take away even more bulk, whereas horizontal stripes make you look a bit more substantial. You should also go for fitted shirts as otherwise you’ll be lost in the garment if it’s too loose and it’s advisable that you go for patterned rather than monochrome shirts as this will add extra substance to you.
For thin men who are also short, then it’s advisable to add a bit of extra height to yourself by wearing dress boots. You should also avoid appearing smaller than you are, so avoid wearing big prints. For skinny men generally, try and stay away from dark colors on your top half as lighter colors can make you appear a little bit larger. Skinny jeans will make you look to thin, so avoid at all costs. It’s also thought that square-toed shoes will make you look more balanced.
