  • by

Fashion and clothing can benefit us in a myriad of various ways. Clothing can communicate an impression of what we’re about, act as an expression of creativity and increase our confidence. But , it’s not a way to fit into the one-size-fits-all category.

The best method to dress well is to master the fundamentals of fashion and then use them in your own style and physique. This is particularly true for men who are either side of the body type spectrum such as the slim and tall man.

What is the best option for skinny and tall guys?

Being taller and slimmer with a body is amazing! The clothes will fit well on your body. Your presence will be hard to overlook in a crowd When slim men put on even a bit of muscle, it’s slim attractive, well-defined, and beautiful.

However, being tall and skinny comes with its own set of problems.

Sometimes, our frame or height could be a cause of anxiety, and although we all want to be different and stand out, being different due to our height could be uncomfortable at times.

The uncertainty of what to wear or how to dress it will only create feeling of anxiety and insecurity. While we might not be able to assist with all of your needs but we can provide you with a few easy style and fashion tips to your body shape.

These suggestions will assist you in reducing some of the negative aspects of your body, maximise the advantages, and most importantly will help you look the best you can to feel confident..

1. Avoid Extremes In Fit

Fit is the most important rule of fashion, and this is particularly applicable to men who have slim or skinny physique.

You may believe that wearing larger clothes that are baggy will conceal your figure However, wearing clothes that are too big has the exact opposite effect, making you appear as if you’re “drowning” within your clothes (or it’s because you’re big lover of 90s pop bands). Dressing in super tight clothes only emphasizes the slim muscles.

Be sure to stay slim and fitted but not too loose when you’re putting on your clothes. Don’t be afraid to have your clothes customized, even casual clothes.

There are a few instances of when you should modify casual clothes: perhaps you have a button-up t-shirt or T-shirt that sits well within the sleeves, but feels quite tinny in the body… as well even jeans and chinos whose calves aren’t fully filled out.

In essence, any extra clothing that conceals your body is best removed in order it is comfortable and accentuates your figure a little without appearing skin tight.

While a tailor’s service is worthwhile The most simple choice to make is to shop brands that produce clothing that is specifically designed to fit your body. We’ve included some ideas to read about!

2. Layering is Your Friend

I’m definitely #TeamLayering.

Layering is an excellent method that any man can employ to look more fashionable however, it has advantages for slim men. Layering can go far in adding strength and structure to your body and give you a muscular but slim appearance.

One of my favorite look is the classic hoodie, paired with the motorcycle jacket I have or down jacket on top. Another option that is lighter is to put an flannel jacket over the hoodie in lieu of an outer jacket.

Additionally, when you are choosing a jacket to layer, pick one with a structured shoulder, or an open lapel. A blazer or motorcycle jacket are more suitable for your physique rather than an oversized jacket.

The structure makes your shoulders appear wider and your waist appear more slimmer creating a feminine “V” design. (You’ll notice a trend: a lot of these tips are designed to help give you that aesthetically-pleasing shape.)

3. Dress to Make Your Body Balance

If you look at a complete body image of yourself, how are you “carry” your size?

If you’re like me, you have a long body, relatively short legs, and 32″ for most T-shirts.

It is possible that you are experiencing the opposite problem where all of your height is contained in your legs and you have an (relatively) shorter the torso. This is a totally different set of problems.

If you’re in my camp, then long-line t-shirts for tall skinny guys is an “normal” size for you larger torso that will help to balance your proportions visually.

Another option to even out the proportions of a tall man having shorter legs would be to put on pants that are higher in the rise. This will visually lengthen your legs to ensure they appear more proportional to a torso that is otherwise larger.

For those with legs that are longer A mid-to low-rise pants can actually be beneficial, creating legs that appear shorter that they really are. Also, this gives you the visual balance that you require.

Another tip is to choose pants or jeans that are extra long or unhemmed, put on a cuff at the end. The cuff creates the opposite effect to high-rise pants. It visually reduces the legs while balancing the shorter body.

The purpose here isn’t just to conceal the height of your body, it’s rather to bring your proportions in line so that your appearance is more balanced visually.

4. Do not wear pinstripes if you have the plague.

Vertical stripes can only lengthen your style, adding an already slim look.

Pinstripes are only for neck-and-shoulder-wearers like The Rock or John Cena… others of us, mere skinny and tall mortals have to pick plain patterns and even more “boxy” or full-on styles.

Most style guidelines are fundamentals and not guidelines. This is not the case.

If you’re tall and slim and want to minimize your size avoid wearing pinstripes. If you’re a fan of stripes, you could wear stripes in other places on your wardrobe, but be sure to avoid stripes which are bold and horizontal.

Opt to go with other alternatives for example, an repp stripe tie, a T-shirt with a thin horizontal stripe or a thin horizontal stripe T-shirt. Thin stripes or wide diagonal stripes worn in more obvious ways (e.g. A pinstripe-free suit) will not make you appear longer.

5. Purchase A Great Henley, Wear It Many times

A good henley will fit comfortably, but not too loosely, on your shoulders with enough length to extend to the wrist bone. I prefer them to be made of the softest, stretchier material however, you are able to choose a more robust fabric in the event that it’s made with an athletic shape.

The thing that makes a henley so great is the fact that its design naturally creates that V-shaped shape and wider shoulders that we’ve been discussing–even making a real V using the buttons open. Be sure to release some buttons go in order to avoid losing this effect.

The henley is one the basics that is fashionable, elegant, and can be worn with a range of styles (meaning they’re great to layer). The henley looks great with a flannel jacket or jean jacket to create a rugged appearance. A shawl sweater to create a trendy look is perfectly with a henley well. The henley is also an excellent outer layer if you put an over-sized crew neck top underneath.

Other clothes that provide the similar V-shaped effect include button down shirts and shawl sweaters. They all feature substantial collars that visually broaden the chest and shoulders and then again reduce in size until they reach the waist.

6. Make sure that the fit is perfect for Your Sleeves

Of course, you don’t have to cover up constantly. When the time comes to wear a simple T-shirt, the most effective option is to make sure that the sleeves fit around your arms and slide down to the mid-tricep.

Short sleeves or fabric with a length that is too big won’t look flattering on your arms. However, an oversized sleeve can take advantage of the advantages of being slim but still making the “guns” appear more impressive.

Many T-shirts come with sleeves fitted.

One trick visual to appear more bulky is to wear a T-shirts with long sleeves that are worn to the mid-forearm, or above the elbow.

A lot of tall people are unable to find button-downs with enough sleeves. This is a excellent reason to take them off. The majority of dress shirt brands offer longer sleeves, however casual button-downs can be difficult to find.

7. Choose lighter shades to look larger

Color is among the most effective options in our fashion arsenal and if you’re hoping to create a larger and more complete look choosing lighter shades will assist you. A few great choices are grey, white and, of course, lighter shades of every hue.

However, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t ever dress in dark hues. Dark colors are wonderful! However, they can also be slimming, which is something that you do not require. This is a matter to consider and make use of wisely.

However, do take your time and play around with various shades and colors and don’t hesitate to experiment with anything. There aren’t any hard and fast rules of fashion However, as is the norm, this is a general rule to consider when making choices.
