We seem to have been forgotten. You know, like the guy picked last in the gym.
However, short men should not lose hope. The good news is, short men can still look stunning! YOU CAN.
In this post, I want to share with you how you can rock your body and make you look AMAZING. Go from Zero to HERO in no time. Although we’re short. It doesn’t mean we have to ‘look short’
Have a look at the six stunning style for short men tips that will make you look and feel great about yourself. (you will trust me)
Style for Short Men: Time to LOOK AMAZING
1. Outers / Jackets
If you don’t wear jackets or outers. It’s time to reconsider. Whether it’s a simple suit or sports jacket, grab it and put it on.
Here’s why, wearing a jacket builds up the shoulders and make it look taller.
Style Tip for Short men:
- Avoid color clashing. Dark colors work best for short men because they make you look thinner and taller..
- Don’t wear outers that are too bulky hence making you look shorter than you are.
- Pick short outers or jackets.
2. Pick the right Pattern
Remember the rule?
Horizontal lines NAY
Vertical lines YAY!
Short men should ALWAYS avoid horizontal patterns as they make you appear shorter and even plump. Uhhhh!! the horrorrrrrr!
What color should you go with?
Pick any colors that you like. Just don’t go too crazy with it.
3. No low waist pants…. ever
High or medium rise pants will make you appear taller because they make your legs look longer. This is one rule you need to remember for the rest of your life.
Avoid low-waist or low rise pants as much as possible. You do not want to look like the animation character Hobbit or…. Justin Bieber.
This is a trend you should just forget. Just pick a pants that will fit your natural waist line instead of your hips
Style Tip for Short Men:
- Choose a size that doesn’t require you to wear a belt. Remember. Pick the right fit.
- Tuck in your shirt. It helps to give you an illusion of longer legs.
Shoes are a vital part of men’s dressing. There is a saying that the quality of your shoes reveals how much you respect yourself.
I agree! So what should you do about your shoes?
- Casual: Loafers
I love loafers. Why? Because it has a little ‘platform’ that adds an inch to my height. To us shorties an inch is a lot!
- Formal: Height increasing shoes
You should consider height increasing shoes. They can add up to 6 inches to your height. I’m sure you’re thinking. Doesn’t it look bulky? The answer is …. NO… if you get quality height increasing shoes.
Style Tips for Short men:
- Stick to wearing darker shoes. They have a classy appearance and it is hard for someone to notice that they are even heeled.
5. Attention grabbing details
The way you blend the attention grabbing details will determine how tall and good you will look.
Keep the bright details up and not down as that will make you appear shorter. You want people to be looking up and not down remember?
Here are my best style for short men tip!
- Tip 1: Wear a hat can also give you a great look (and height)
- Tip 2: Comb your height UP! (again.. adding height)
6. Tailored clothes
If you’re willing to invest, it’s time to get your clothes tailored. While it may be a little more expensive than off the rack, it’s worth the investment.
I love tailored clothing.
Especially if you’re investing in a suit. NEVER buy suits off the rack because the fit will NEVER fit you.
If you’re starting out, I recommend you start and get tailored dress shirts. For that, I recommend Modern Tailor.
