Don’t be offended with your height; every man would want to look taller, but no one has control over how tall they want to grow. So far, shorter guys had a slight disadvantage in the fashion industry. However, now the clothing industry has evolved so much that it’s possible to find the fit properly, no matter whether you’re 5’6″ or shorter. Lack of height shouldn’t be a hindrance for showing your talent; you must have heard the famous quote that ‘good things always come in small parcels’ and this would perfectly hold true for your situation. Today, the fashion world welcomes all sizes and shapes and shorter men too have lot of opportunity to look smarter; you never know, ‘tall, dark, and handsome’ concept may fade soon and girls may search for short and stylish guys!
Ways to Look Taller
Before you read the next tip, consider this fashion advice to make you appear taller. These are simple, yet effective tips for adding height. First of all, don’t be disheartened with your look; instead maintain a great posture that adds height eventually. Keep your back straight, instead of bending or slouched pose that makes you appear shorter, making you feel insecure about your height. The hairstyle also matters a lot and cut your hair short. Long hair can hide your shoulder and neck, making your body and head (neck) look like one part, making you look shorter. Yet another thing to be considered is maintaining lean body; extremely muscular and heavier body will make you stubbier and broader, which that won’t help in adding some height to overall frame.
Look for monochromatic colors that help to streamline your appearance; wearing shades from the same family can help in reducing visual clutter. Go for darker and brighter shades that create an illusion of height. If you want to try different shades, wear dark colored bottom to create a lengthening effect. Wearing both top and bottom in the same shade can avoid breaks in your natural structure that eventually makes you look taller. The same concept applies for medium or light fabrics. Heavier materials can make you look shorter and bulkier.
Vertically Striped Pattern
Horizontally-oriented patterns are widening, while vertical are slimming; it is suggested to go for unbroken vertical stripes to elongate your height. Other patterns such as herringbone, chalks stripe, and pinstripe offer vertical effect.
Loose fit can make you look sloppy and stumpy; hence, it’s imperative to choose a garment that fits you flawlessly. Opt for trim fit over baggy to offer more appealing and structured look. You can go for designer clothes or customized dresses or find a tailor who cuts the dressing material into right fit. Ragazzi Clothing has collections from various brands, such as Paul and Shark, CP Company, and Barbour that are currently ruling men’s fashion.
Why Not Try Accessories?
Simple accessories, such as tie, thin belt, shoes with slight heel, and hats can enhance the overall appearance.
Hopefully, these tips would have helped you get the right cloth to make you look taller.
