Dealing With Fashion
Fashion can be extremely frustrating for the shorter man. It appears as if the whole world is against you, with shops displaying models who are all over six feet tall and look amazing, as well as their being specialty stores for those who are over a certain height. While the little guy may have been forgotten about by many, fear not, as with our top tips for dressing for the shorter man, you will be looking amazing and feeling confident in no time at all.
Sort Out Your Trousers
Spending a little money to have your pants adjusted to the optimum length will make a huge difference to the way you look. Although it can be tempting, particularly with denim, to buy regular styles and turn them up, you will get a much more sleek and sophisticated look by having them fit correctly in the first place.
Going to a tailor first off can be expensive, so instead just buy what you want then get them adjusted, as this will cost a lot less.
Get Your Shirts Custom Made
I know, I know, I have just said to avoid a tailors, and I stand by that remark. Have you looked up an online tailor though? These tend to be very good in terms of value, and all you often need to do is to type in the fit and style of shirt you are looking for, along with your measurements, and your shirt will be custom made and delivered to your home.
This is a great initiative, and will help you avoid having six inches of excessive fabric tucked in, or sleeves rolled up so your upper arms look like a heavyweight boxer’s.
Dealing With Accessories
If you are shorter or of a smaller build, being covered in “bling” is not going to do you any favors at all. Look at the American rapper Machine Gun Kelly and you will know what I mean, the guy sometimes looks ridiculous! Keep accessories understated and very deliberate at all times, although you might be tempted by the big watch or other piece of jewellery, consider the impact this will have on your overall look before jumping in with both feet.
Dealing with fashion well can add inches to your height, help you look better, and make you more expressive and confident in yourself. Do not allow the fashion world catering for Joe Average and Mr High and Mighty to beat you, fight back and make the most of what you have got.
