If you are not into standard suits, you can offset the blazer with a pair of denim jeans.
Invest in muscular pieces
It is possible to appear more muscular by just adding one detail to your outfit. There are clothes that will generally make you buffer by broadening your shoulders and slimming your waist. For instance, male trench coats are classic and sophisticated as well as muscular. They give you that extra male vibe. Similarly, jackets and blazers that are subtly padded will do. Leather jackets are also perceived as masculine and will give you the desired edge as long as it fits perfectly. You can also check out bow ties for men to pair with your dress shirt.
Stylishly wear layers
Wearing layers can work brilliantly as well as go south so fast. Therefore, tread softly and be sure to know what you are doing. You’d want to layer your clothes from thin to thick, and from light to sturdy. Similarly, you want your layers to go from light patterns and texture to stronger ones. Since all your layers should be visible, it’s only fair to coordinate them. It might pose a challenge but ones you have mastered the art, it’s actually very easy to pull off. Additionally, it not only increases your frame but also gives you a sophisticated vibe that screams style and in touch with detail. If you are not so sure, how to coordinate colors, stay within one color family. For instance, wear a light green shirt, with a jungle green cardigan, topped with a grey jacket.
Choice of textile, pattern, and color
Textile and color have a role to play in maximizing your muscles. Black, for example, is a slimming color. Therefore, if you want more definition, your best bet would be light colors. This also works best when picking out shirts and t-shirts. Go for white especially in summer seasons. Likewise, there are fabrics that add more visual bulk than others. Fabrics such as corduroy, denim, or anything rough to the touch will suggest you have more body mass than you actually do. On a sunny day, wearing a bright colored t-shirt with horizontal stripes, checks or boxes will add visual heft to your body.
Add some buff to your neck
If you are slim, chances are you have a thin neck which should not be ignored. Turtlenecks are a classic choice but there are many other options. You can get collared sweaters, funnel neck cardigan, or standing collars. You can also invest in a set of men’s designer ties rather than leaving your shirt unbuttoned.
Bottom line is, always dress to flatter your body. Try the tips mentioned and watch your image get stronger.
