You want to be fashionable but you think you are too slim to find clothes that will make you look attractive? Are you planning to go to the gym to be more muscular, or are you thinking of eating a lot just to gain weight, and so you can fit to those oversized shirts you have been eyeing?
While there is no problem with being slim as long as you are healthy, some consider it a problem because some slim people, especially men, think they don’t have attractive built to win a woman’s attention or to pass an interview or even catch the interviewers attention as they think their clothes don’t fit them.
Sure there are advantages of being bigger in size, but just because you have that slim body doesn’t mean you look less pleasing to the eyes.
Here are tips to ace your next fashion walk.
1. Do the Layering Technique
With your small built, wearing more than one shirt is just perfect. This is especially a great idea if you are in a country with winter season or at least the weather is cold. However, if you are in a tropical country, you can still pull off this trick.
Wear T-shirt under your button down Polo shirt or long sleeves, and leave the it unbuttoned. This way, there’s an instant bulkiness added to your frame.
Just make sure that you are wearing shirts with matching colors. Let’s say wear maroon long sleeves and white t-shirt inside.
2. Wear Blazers and Suits and Like
While layering is a great idea, wearing jackets and the like does the job well too. If you are an office worker, try wearing suits or blazers and white t-shirt inside it. Blazers and suits give you instant broad shoulders. If you are a sporty type of person or you play sports, varsity jackets are perfect for you.
3. Choose Clothes the Fit
Some people think that wearing big clothes make them look bigger than they are, but no! It just makes them look like a 7-year old skinny boy wearing his father’s loose shirt. Thus, what is the right thing to do? Wear clothes that fit you just right and make sure it is not too tight.
This tip go hand in hand with the next tip.
4. Wear White Clothes
