It seems quite obvious that dressing is an art and many of you know exactly how to do it. However, when it comes to dressing according to your body type and age, things get trickier than they look. If you aren’t dressing the way you should in accordance with your body type, you aren’t doing justice to your outfit as well as your personality.
Before getting to know what tips you must follow for the various outfit options that match your profile, you must know what body type is. We’ve funneled the various body types and the ones that we’re going to take a look at are – trapezoid, rectangle, inverted triangle, triangle, or oval. Well, these are the ones which lie in the category of endomorphs, ectomorphs, and mesomorphs. There are magazines which also categorize them as apple shaped, pear, skinny, tall and more.
The most common body is what we can commonly call as the rectangular body shape are the ones that have a longer body. Men who fall in this category are the ones who should towards bringing their shoulders to the limelight. Men with this body type can always look up to structured clothing.

Inverted triangle One step further to the Trapezoidal body type are the ones with Inverted Triangle body shape have comparatively broader shoulders. Not only this, the waist is thin in comparison to the upper body. Jason Statham is a perfect example of this body type. Where we talked about bringing the shoulders in focus to the above (which you obviously don’t need in this case), the focus must be on the legs and the waist. You can opt for something that diminishes the broad shoulders or pieces that can enhance your lower body. Loose t-shirts or flowy coats would make your waist look broader while v-neck tees would diminish your shoulders.

In addition, the waist must be made to look slimmer and leaner. Blazers are the sure-shot fix to help you broaden the top while taking the emphasis from your bottoms.
Round body types are the ones that land into the Oval body shape category. They have a softer frame and an enlarged body (similar to the rectangle with no solid edges). Their middle section is larger than the upper and the lower body. Gerald Butler is an example of the same. Sturdy blazers and jackets are the mantras to find yourself looking dapper and on spot complementing your physique. Vertical striped tees with a defined fit are the another example for the same.
