This is an extremely useful tip that every skinny guy should make use of. Wearing darker shades make you look slimmer as darker color absorbs more light. Being a skinny dude you should prefer wearing lighter shades as they reflect most of the light back which gives an illusion of you appearing larger than you actually are.


2. Wear horizontal stripes

Just like wearing different colours can create a difference in how big you look, similarly, patterns can cause the same effect. Wearing vertical stripes can make you appear taller and slimmer whereas horizontal stripes can make you appear broader or larger. Horizontal striped shirts or t-shirts are a must for every skinny man.


3. Get the fit Right

Most skinny people make this mistake. They either wear clothes that are too big for them or too tight for them both of which make them appear even more skinny and unstylish. Your clothes should be fitted but should not be too tight. The sleeves of your t-shirt should fit your arms and the middle portion should also not have much extra fabric. For pants, keep it tapered and the length should right above the ankle.

Fit is probably the most important aspect of skinny men’s fashion so I suggest you guys to pay extra attention to the fit of your clothes.


4. Layer Up!

When you are very skinny you should try to make you appear broader instead of taller or leaner. V-neck t-shirts and sweaters add a vertical element to your outfit which makes you appear less broad thus make you look even more skinnier. So to appear broader you need to add horizontal elements to your clothing such as wearing round-necks or shirts and polos, that make your neck looks broader.

6. Avoid Lighter materials

Lighter material clothes are more suited for people with good physique as it makes your body features more prominent. As a skinny guy, you should avoid very light material for your clothes and instead look for thicker materials, which adds bulk to your physique.
