Everyone wants to look and feel good in their clothes no matter their size. Fortunately, it’s not very difficult to find big and tall men’s clothing stores. If you’re a big guy, all you have to do is familiarize yourself with the tips in this post, before you start shopping for new clothes.
The Right Fit
It’s a common misconception that you can hide your size by wearing larger clothes – but in reality, the only thing it’s hiding is your fashion sense. Any body type and size will benefit from clothes that fit properly, more so for those with larger frames. Wearing loose clothing in an effort to conceal unwanted curves and bulges will just emphasize them and make you look even bigger and perhaps a little sloppy.
On the other hand, if you make sure to wear perfectly fitting clothes, it will make you look more put together, cleaner, and leaner. Good fitting garments will also add to your confidence because you will feel better in them.
Keep It Simple
When you’re tall and have a large frame, your presence alone may feel imposing. Try not to add to that feeling by picking clothes with busy prints and patterns. Keep your wardrobe simple with clothes in solid colors.
Avoid Heavy Clothing
Just like loose clothes, thick and heavy ones will make you look bulky, sloppy, and even larger. On top of that, thicker and heavier clothes can attract more heat and will eventually cause sweating, which isn’t something you want when you’re working to look put together.
Choose trousers over denim jeans when shopping for pants to keep it cool and light, and go for light fabrics for all of your garments.
Go for Definition
Similar to getting the perfect fit, clothes that give a clear, defined shape to your body are the best choices for you. Shop for sports coats, suits, and blazers to create the appearance of neatness and definition. Choose slacks and trousers over denim jeans because they create a clean, solid front.
Avoid Showing a Lot of Skin
Avoid wearing loose shirts and baggy shorts, as they will not look great on a larger body frame. If you want to feel more comfortable and really want to wear shorts, don’t go for long and baggy ones that will make your legs look stumpy and in turn make your upper body look heavier.
Keep in mind what clothes can and cannot do for you. You cannot expect any type of clothing to make you look a lot thinner or smaller than you actually are, so it’s best to stick to reality and be aware of what the right size clothing will do for your appearance. What it’s going to do is make your body look balanced, proportional, put together, and most of all, make you feel comfortable in your own skin.
Own Your Body
Of course, your nice clothes are not going to do all of the work. You have to carry yourself unapologetically and own your body, no matter what your size, so that you will exude confidence. In turn, you’ll look nice, healthy, and fashionable.
Keep these things in mind when shopping for new clothes or simply when trying to figure out what to wear for an event.
