Fashion Tips for Skinny Men

Small Shoulder Padded Blazers
This type of blazer will impart a muscular look to your upper body. Choose from single or double breasted blazers only that fit your comfortably throughout the body without any extra fabric under the arms or shoulders. Consistency of the top and bottom garment is also very essential to hide your thin frame. However keep the padding light as massive padding can be overwhelming on your thin body making you look lost in oversized garment and also give you a cheap look, despite the fact that the blazer cost you a fortune. Oversized tops with tight fitting pants or vice versa will make your thin frame look even more apparent.
Flat front classic pants with straight or boot cut shape are perfect for the skinny guy. You can add volume with extra pockets. Regular cut jeans are also a good choice.
Tops that sway at Midsection
Avoid figure hugging and clingy fabric shirts and Tees. Choose loose tops that stand slightly apart at your midsection. This will hide your small ribcage and give you a look of bulkiness. Again avoid very loose garments, lest you seem lost in it.
Right Length of Jacket
The jacket should just about cover your buttocks and not go beyond that, neither should it be too short. Short jackets suit short guys as it adds height while a long jacket will hide your whole body.
Accessorize your garments with men’s style light weight stainless steel bracelets and chains that are slightly thick. Avoid heavy metal or broad belts. Broad checked ties would also look good on plain or light colored dress shirts.
Patterns and Fabric
Opt for patterns other than pinstripes. Pinstripes make your body look even thinner. Other patterns would be windowpane or even bold prints. Fabrics with slight bulkiness such as chunky knitted wool garments should help you add a few inches to your frame. Worn over corduroy trousers, they can lend you the weight you require. As for shirts, opt for fabric with higher thread count. Choose crewnecks or turtlenecks and spread collar shirts and Tees to v-necks as they can hide your height. A shorter frame will make you look bulky.
