If your body type is tall and thin, you can have problems finding clothes that look good on you. Most of them will simply look as if they are hanging off you instead of conforming to your natural curves. However, there are a few fashion secrets which can remedy this problem. Here are a few tips to help you out.
1. Wear horizontal stripes
The rule is that horizontal stripes make you look wider while vertical stripes make you look taller. Since you are already tall enough, horizontal stripes are the way to go as they will create the illusion of you being bulkier than you really are. Just be sure to avoid wearing vertical stripes since these would only exacerbate your problem.
2. Don’t wear loose clothes
You would think that wearing looser clothes will create the appearance of you not being as thin as you actually are. However, oftentimes they will have the exact opposite effect. Since you are thin, these clothes will simply hang off you, actually accentuating your problem instead of concealing it. At the same time, very tight clothing will leave nothing to the imagination and show how thin you actually are. Fitted clothes are ideal, just don’t go overboard.
3. Wear custom clothes
If you really want an outfit that accentuates your positive qualities and hides the negative ones, there is no better alternative than custom clothes. These are designed specifically for your body type. While you might avoid them as being too expensive, the truth is that you can find sales on custom clothes which make them more affordable than you would expect.
