Unfortunately, style isn’t easy. It does require effort, focus on the fit, trial room exercises, choosing colour palettes and well, the right pieces for your (good or bad) body type. It’s difficult, we know. But knock knock, it only SOUNDS difficult. With just simple tips/tricks and a few sartorial know hows, you’re bound to fare well with your uniform everyday. That said, a lot of us don’t have the perfect body to flaunt. Yet, if one’s thin enough to wear almost anything in life, the least he can do is: not appear fat. Unless, of course, he’s hell-bent on succumbing to the listed pointers here.
1. Baggy Jeans (Or Even Skinny Jeans)
If you’re an oxygen-led human who lives on a planet called Earth, here’s a reminder: throw your baggy stuff out of the window. No way in hell can you wear it in public. One, because it makes you look bigger. Two, broader. And three, it just doesn’t flatter your body in any corner. They’ve got nothing for you here, so just go home. Likewise, since anything skinny fits you like second skin, if your legs aren’t your assets, keep skinny jeans way. Slim fits are best!

2. Anything Horizontally-Striped
Your eyes are easy: they look at a line from one end to the other. So, clearly, if there’s a horizontal line that moves from the left to the right, your eyes will move in the same direction (or maybe right to left). Result? You’ll appear broader. Why do that to yourself? Opt for vertically striped apparel instead. However, rugby stripes are spiffy, so, if you’re wearing them anyway, proceed with caution.
3. Tucking In Your Shirt
In most cases, doing this is a part of good (or professional) manners. However, it’s something that might be highlighting all your problem areas. Since tucking your shirt into your trousers will contour your stomach area, it’s bound to glorify what’s odd around there. Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you.
4. Ill-fitted Suit
Whether you’re a corporate honcho or not, nothing should stop you from dropping cash on a well-fitted suit. If your sleeves are too long or trousers are representing the Niagara fall, visit a goddamn tailor. Don’t allow extra fabric on your suit to add any unnecessary bulk on you.

5. Wearing Too Many Colours
Breaking your body up with tons of colours, will only bring focus on each and every part of your body. And, in case there any flaws in any given area, it’s almost like you’re bringing the spotlight to it. So guess what — wear one colour all over, or tints/shades of the same colour or best: stick to only dark colours.
