Style Hacks: How Men Dress to Appear Skinny
If you want to appear skinny, all you have to do is have a wardrobe overhaul! Learn how to wear the right color or pattern to make yourself look fit and in shape. You just have to know which clothes to stay away from and which clothes you should stock up on.
1. Wear Dark-Colored Clothes
Dark colors seem to make you appear skinny, thus, it works well with larger men. If your upper body is larger, wear light-colored pants to create balance with your lower body.
2. Wear V-Neck Shirts
Round neck shirts emphasize the roundness of your face. You should go for V-neck shirts. The diagonal lines help in lengthening your face as well as your upper body.
3. Leave Shirts Untucked
The problem with tucking in your shirt is it draws attention to your problem areas, specifically in your upper body. When your shirt is tucked in, it gets contoured into your body. Leave your shirt untucked if the setting allows you to (for instance you’re in a night out with your beer buddies) so your shirt would not cling to your body.
4. Stay Away From Loud Prints
Loud prints and patterns such as a bright Hawaiian shirt with palm trees adds volume to your body. It also attracts attention and will probably have people’s eyes on your problem areas. You can instead wear block-color pieces that have darker shades.
5. Use Shapewear
The shapewear, just like its female counterpart waist trainer, is becoming popular nowadays. If you want to create an illusion of having a six pack, this could be your best friend!
