The clothes your wear and the way you wear them can make a big difference to the way you look. Clothes also hold the power to alter the appearance of your body, either making you look fatter or slimmer or at times plain funny. Today we show the men out there how to dress slimmer and thus look better!
The Perfect Fit
You might think that wearing baggy clothes will hide all your problem areas, but honestly speaking they don't. In most cases they make you look even larger and at times also shorter. Always wear clothes that fit you perfectly. They shouldn't be too tight either, for that will just make you bulge.
It's no secret that dark coloured clothes have a slimming effect. So why have you stayed away from them till now? Wear darker shades in relaxed fits and slim fits to lend a slimming appearance to your body. Conversely, avoid extremely bright colours or heavy and large prints.

Let It Out
If you want to look slim then avoid tucking in your shirts whenever you can. Of course in a more professional setting it is not possible, but when you are in casuals always sport the out-shirt look. It will make your belly look flatter, while the tucked-in look will accentuate it.
Some may think that wearing their pants above their waistline will make them look slimmer, while some think that low waist pants give a slimmer look. The fact remains that a bottom worn on your natural waistline will always look better than the others and will give your body a better form.
Always wear a belt on your bottoms; but, understand this, you are not wearing a belt to make an extremely loose bottom stay up. Don't wear loose clothes! The belt is there to make a perfectly fitting bottom fit better. Go for decent-sized and non-eye-catchy buckles. Leave the large flashy buckles to superheroes.
Chuck The Pleats
Pleated clothes might have been stylish in the yesteryears but let them stay there. No need to bring them back, especially if you want to look thin. Pleats equal to extra and unnecessary fabric hanging on your body, which will add to your overall size and make you look heavy.
Go For The Pins
While wearing solid colours is the best bet if you want to look thin, pinstripes also work quite well to achieve the slimming look. Pin stripes attract peoples attention up and down your body, rather than across it. This saves you from them noticing any flab.
Round Makes Round
If you really want to look slim then give your crew neck and round neck t-shirts an absolute miss. A round neck instantly makes your face look round. Go for V necks instead that give your face and chest a slimming effect and are also very much in trend. Just avoid the ridiculously deep Vs.
Keep The Pockets Light
Never overstuff your pockets. Pockets that are filled with your wallet, loose change, handkerchief, etc, will add on to your body, making it look disfigured and lumpy. Be it a chest pocket or back pocket, avoid over-stuffing it. If you have too many belongings, then carry a classy bag with you instead.
And lastly, though this isn't a dressing tip, posture matters. No matter what type of clothes you wear, if your posture sucks, then not even the best dressing tips will be able to help. Always sit straight and stand upright. Stop slouching!
