If you’re like us, you know the pain of trying to look good in clothes designed for skinnier guys.
T-shirts that cling to your chest and belly but hang loose on the arms, jeans which fit our waist but flare out at the bottom, squeezing into suffocating Under Armour to hide some of our bigger bits - the list of frustrations are endless!
Maybe you want to lose weight or maybe you’re happy where you’re at - both scenarios are cool with us.
Either way, you still need to learn how to dress for your current body type. Your time hiding your burly body is over.
Here’s BRLY Basics Lesson #5: Shape...
If you don’t have the gym-trained body that Instagram is so obsessed with, you can build your way to one with layering and angled clothing.
Lesson #5 in practice:
● Choose v-neck tops instead of round, crew neck collars. A v-neck collar helps elongate the face and neckline, so look for that collar shape when you’re shopping for t-shirts and sweaters.
● Choose a dress shirt with a spread collar rather than a collar which angles straight down.
● Boxy t-shirts can give you a great shape while avoiding clinging to your chest or stomach areas.
● You’re looking to create shape, not bulk, so opt for thin knits, chore jackets and over shirts.
● Wear a lighter coloured shirt with a dark, open blazer to streamline your look.
● Flattering shapewear is also an interesting layering choice for those who want additional help. Choose neutral coloured shapewear like white or nude that won’t be obvious under a t-shirt or shirt.
