Tips for skinny guys to look good
We cover a list of clothing and how it can make you look less skinny!
One of the most obvious advice and that is generally sub-consciously followed by most skinny guys are the layered clothing option. You have to focus on bulking up and the best way to do it is by layers of clothing. Shirts, Jackets, Blazers are all perfect for layering. You can wear a shirt over a t-shirt or a blazer over a shirt and it would still look good. The layers will not bulk you up, but give you more girth.
Long Sleeves that are Fitted
Generally, skinny guys have skinny forearms and thin biceps and it isn’t a great look. Wearing long sleeves, is your best bet at covering your forearms. But a lot of guys make a mistake of wearing sleeves that are too loose. Don’t ever make this mistake!
Make sure your sleeves are well fitted and wrap your forearms snugly. The looser your sleeves are, more like a ghost in a blanket, you will look.
If it’s getting too hot, you should consider folding your sleeves and rolling it up. This makes your biceps look bigger and gives more definition to your biceps. If you are worried about the look of your forearm, you can wear a watch to cover your small wrists.
For people who are a bit overweight, they suggest darker colours like Black. Black packs you in and makes you look leaner. It’s the opposite for skinny guys, if you are skinny, then you need to pick clothing that is light in colour. Some of the colour options are
- Light Blue
This is the undisputed psychology of people when they see you in coloured clothing. Focus on wearing lighter colours.
Get simple accessories
Some guys go overboard and overcompensate by getting huge accessories. Large watches and big chains and big rings. You’ll want to accessorize like a minimalist. Instead of a G-shock, focus on wearing a thinly strapped watch, with a not so large dial and display.
If you wearing a chain, make it thin, and wear it inside. Try to avoid big rings, if you like to wear them.

A certain type of blazers also come with extra padding and gives you a strong and powerful look. This is why military uniforms have crisp jackets with strong shoulder padding.
