Skinny Guy Fashion Tips!

Avoid ‘fragile’ clothes

Accept it. Wearing a shirt which is too big is not going to make you look bulkier! It will further emphasize on how skinny you are, making you look frail. Same goes with clothes which are too small. Know your perfect fit, and stick to your size. Keep the dimensions in mind, and know that a better fitting outfit will look better anyway, then an outfit which is too big or too small. You don’t want to look physically weaker, do you? Thus, stay away from oversized and bulky clothes.

Layer Up

Play up the textures and add multiple layers to your outfit. This will give your outfit more depth, giving it an instant visual lift. Stick to a coordinating color family and remember to start from a lighter texture and work your way to a heavier one. The art of layering might take some practice but is undoubtedly a useful art to learn.

Know your Fabrics

Choose fabric which instantly adds volume, like denim, tweed, flannel or corduroy. This gives the visual illusion of one having more bulk than a smooth fabric will. Another good idea is to add clothes which have a bit more texture than the usual. This means chunky knits instead of the thinner knits and a puffer jacket as opposed to a slim-fit one. When everything confuses you, stick to textured fabrics such as Flannel, Denim, Corduroy, and Tweed.

Mind the Colors

Generally be mindful about the colors that you use. The colors which are towards the lighter side of the color palette makes the most sense when it comes to a skinny guy. Just like dark colors have a slimming effect, the lighter colors have the opposite effect, helping you to bulk up! So take your pick from the whites, beiges, or pastels.

Mind the Patterns

Patterns also play a pivotal role in making you look skinnier or bulkier! So opt for horizontal stripes, smaller patterns and checks and plaid. It can add visual heft to your body, making you look stronger and less cumbersome. Horizontal lines, gingham and graph checks are your best bets when it comes to patterns. If you opt for T-shirts, then keep away from V-necks and instead pick crew necks. It will thus complement your body type better.
