How to NOT look skinny (with fashion)

Tight and tight won’t do you right!

Genetic lottery is a hard one to find- a lot of us look thin, skinny and don’t dress right. Tow away those skinnies and ignore your genius diet- play some clever math and look super good! For all you dwindly kids, here’s the bible you clearly need! 

SHIRTS

Skinny-fit? DON’T EVEN. Buy a few shirts that fit just right and allow some movement around your mid-section. If you don’t want to end up swimming in fabric, get your shirts tailored and look your best!

TEES

The ‘comfort tee’ rule doesn’t apply here. Befriend a white tee and you’d need nothing more. Wear it head-to-toe or hop on a separate, accentuating your lumps and every single bump, it’ll hide your problem areas and leave you minimal, easy and incredibly stylish. Or else, invest in distracting prints!

JACKETS

Layer it up and strike the right balance. Stock up on bulky sweaters and jackets that end at the hip- tailor your blazers and add in some shoulder pads. Keep the pads light and you’d add kilos to your look!

TROUSERS

Steer clear of tapered fits and skinny pants- simple cuts, flat-front versions and appropriate fits should keep you in desire. How about dark denim?

COLOURS

White, creams, light or dark blues, light grays, pastels- just buy them all. If you’re moderately tall, lengthen your body with solid dark colors. 

PRINTS & PATTERNS

Make horizontal stripes your midnight buddy- they’d make you look broader, bigger and keep you in-trend. Checks, diagonals, quirky and wide-angled prints- they’re all awaiting your bucks.

FABRICS

Opt for heavier fabrics but nothing too swishy- let them fall smooth and not hinder your body movement. Remember, anything clingy isn’t the right bet. 

ACCESSORIES

Think proportion and keep them minimal. Wider belts and broader ties- just not too big. Avoid the over-sized and gigantic sunglasses, attention to your slim body isn’t what you need.
