Tall men in particular often wear clothes that don’t fit well. Do you also have difficulties finding suitable clothing because of your height? We want you to know that’s okay, and we’ll help you come up with a solution. Here are 10 style tips you shouldn’t be without as a tall man.
Dress In Layers
If you’re rather tall and slim to average build, dressing in a layered look is an excellent idea to add dimension to your outfit. By wearing a vest and sweater under your jacket, you not only score extra styling points, but also create a new focus that doesn’t make you look any bigger.
All tall men’s outfit benefits from a belt. This not only gives your business outfit a nice, stylish touch, but also creates a clear line across the middle of the body that loosens up your appearance
Wear Tailored Clothing
Actually a matter of course. Tailored clothing makes everything so much easier and is the best way for tall men to achieve the perfect fit.
Avoid Vertical Stripes
Although the pattern is trendy, vertical stripes make it look even bigger. If you would like to wear something striped, it is better to choose horizontal stripes that break up your appearance. In addition, you should primarily opt for a slightly wider stripe design. Tall people should avoid shirts with thin stripes.
Avoid Tight-Fitting Jeans
We’re all for tailored clothing if by tailor-made you mean tailored. However, try to refrain from wearing overly tight jeans or trousers as they will accentuate your body shape and only make you look taller and thinner. If you prefer a slimmer style, opt for slim-fitting or tailored pants, which give you the look you want without making you look bigger.
Jackets, Always And Everywhere
If you’re both tall and slim, you should wear a blazer whenever possible, as these garments accentuate your shoulders, add a little width, and add to both your look and your style. Be careful not to use too much padding, though, unless you want to go straight back to the ’80s.
Wear Long Trench Coats
Trench Coats Are Trendy, sophisticated and underrated. If you’re a tall man and want to invest in this quality piece of clothing, make sure it hits at least below the knee, preferably mid-calf. Avoid thigh or waist-length coats as they will only accentuate your height.
Avoid Low-Rise Pants
It is best not to wear low-slung trousers that visually lengthen the torso. For a more proportionate look, opt for medium to high cuts instead.
Chose Colorful Shoes
A shoe with a print not only adds extra style points to your outfit but draws attention down rather than up. Furthermore, printed shoes tend to visually shorten your feet, another plus since most tall men often have big feet too.
By playing with different textures, colors, and patterns on both your upper and lower body, your size is broken up in a beautiful way, similar to a belt.
