Before you pay for a disgrace!

Shopping could be a delightful experience but with a nightmarish ending. The clothing simply looked great, the style altogether new and the price modest. So, you bought…an error! So often we admire fitting clothing on a person only to develop disaffection on seeing the same style on another. Isn’t it obvious? Not all styles look good on all! So here are some tips:

For Skinny Men:

Choose heavier fabrics

Choosing heavier fabrics for all of your clothes is an important fashion tip for skinny men. When in style, thick corduroy pants can beef up your legs. As far as dress clothes go, select heavier wools for your suits and cotton dress shirts with a higher thread count. Whether you’re dressing up or down, always dress in layers  as more clothes means you appear to have more mass.

Wear turtlenecks and crewnecks

When you’re a skinny man, wear turtleneck or crewneck sweaters in chillier weather. V-neck sweaters will expose your neck and thin features. Pay attention to the collar when you’re buying dress shirts and pick ones that have spread collars as they will make the upper portion of your chest seem wider.

Check your collar size

If you must wear tie, make sure the collar fits your size. You don’t want to look like a broom dipped in a well. Don’t assume at all. If doubt, wear to check before you pay for a disgrace!

Lastly, be confident of your size and structure. Carry yourself with dignity. Big deals come in small wraps!

 For fat men

There’s a most important ‘dress’ of all – your skin. The best way to look great in the long term is to lose excess weight.

Ensure your clothes aren’t too tight

Your clothes should fit perfectly. Garments that are too tight will reveal all the lumps and bumps you’d rather not draw attention to. Alternatively, while very loose clothing will hide your problem areas, it will also make you look larger than you actually are. Take care when shopping to choose pieces that skim over your body and smooth out its surface.

Don’t wear tops with sloped shoulders

Avoid tops with naturally sloped shoulders as these tend to draw the eye down to your midsection. Check to make sure that all your tops have slightly squared shoulders as these will concentrate others’ attention on your body to your chest and face.

Don’t wear bold patterns

Avoid loud or bold patterns  as they will make you stand out in addition to drawing attention to the upper half of your body. One pattern you should wear, however, is vertical lines; they create optical continuity and will help elongate the look of your body. Dark, solid colors are also your new best friend as they are an instant physique fixer and will make you seem thinner.

Wear low-rise bottoms

Instead of wearing trousers and jeans that hit at your waist, invest in low-rise bottoms that sit on your hips. Low-rise trousers have a shorter distance between the top of the waistband and the crotch of your pants than regular trousers. Also, ensure that the waistband of your pants is large enough to accommodate your midsection so that your belly does not stick out over your pants. A stomach that protrudes over your pants lengthens your torso and shortens your legs — not exactly the most attractive combination. Rotund individuals should also avoid pants with pleats as they will make your pelvic area look bigger.

And hey! Can you kindly empty your dangling pocket of those four heavy phones?
