Fashion Tips for Short Men
December 16th, 2011Fashion, Inspiration, StyleSolosso 1 Comments

Being shorter than average can be challenging but it doesn’t have to stand in the way of being well-dressed.  By choosing the right styles and shopping around for the best fit you can make the most of your height and carry yourself with confidence.

Here are some quick fashion tips for short men.

  • Pants that are too long will emphasize your height.  Always buy the correct length or have your pants tailored to fit.

  • Shirts that are too long should also be avoided.  Your shirts should not fall below your crotch when tucked in and should be slightly shorter when worn tucked out.

  • V-neck shirts will make your neck look longer and create an illusion of greater height while turtlenecks will have the opposite effect.

  • Stick with straight ties which create a vertical line rather than bow ties.

  • Avoid long hair since this tends to make the neck look shorter.

  • Outerwear like jackets and coats should be in proportion to your height.  Avoid jackets that fall beneath the hip and coats that are longer than mid-thigh.

  • Light-to-medium weight fabrics in darker colors can make you look slimmer and taller.

  • Dress in coordinated shades of the same color, such as charcoal slacks with a gray shirt.  This is a well-known trick used by fashion designers to create an illusion of height.

  • Vertical stripes and pinstripes are another way to extend the look of your body.

  • Consider height-increasing footwear such as shoes with thicker soles or insoles or lifts that can be inserted into regular shoes.

No matter what you’re wearing, remember to maximize your height with good posture.  A slouched stance will make you look even shorter.  It’s also to your advantage to stay trim and fit.  Carrying extra weight can make you look short and stocky.
