Short Man Style Tip #1: Make the Hairstyle Stand Out
unique and it’s vertical. On top the hair’s thicker and a little more sculpted-looking. It’s not super slicked, you should be thinking about styles that have a nice, clean, defined shape. You don’t want lots of hair sticking out all over the place on the sides of your head and down around your neck.
The higher people’s attention is focused on your body, the bigger you look. If your hairstyle looks sharp up top, that’s going to make you seem bigger than you are. And, of course, you’ll look like a man with a stylish haircut, which benefits anyone regardless of his height.
Short Man Style Tip #2: Rock Some Funky Glasses
The thick plastic rims that are trendy right now and liked the style, but wanted to make it a little less cookie-cutter and a little more personalized,
It’s such a minor, simple change, and it has a big effect. That’s one of the things I love about fashion — the little personal details give an outfit incredible power.
As far as style for a shorter man goes, this is doing pretty much the same thing the haircut does. It pulls the viewer’s eyes up to face and makes them look him right in the eye as they interact. That really bold detail around his eyes is keeping people’s attention where he wants it.
Of course, if you’re short and have perfect vision, this might not be useful advice (although there are some pretty stylish brands out there these days that make “vanity” glasses, where the lens is clear plastic with no magnification or correction). There’s no real alternative for guys who don’t wear glasses, unfortunately — a sharp hat, where appropriate, is probably the closest you’re going to get in terms of accent pieces that keep people focused on your face.
Short Man Style Tip #3: Keep the Fit Close
The shorter you are, the more obvious it is if your clothes are too big for you.
buying a “slim fit” from the brands that offer one, and some trips to the tailor for adjustments on some of his shirts as well.
Same goes for the fit in the pants — shorter guys want to keep that as close as possible, especially in the crotch and butt.
Clothes that are loose enough to start to sag do double damage to short guys: first it’s a distraction that keeps people’s eyes down on your lower body, and second it has the unfortunate effect of making you look like a kid who hasn’t quite grown into his hand-me-downs yet.
If you’re short and built more on the hefty side, you obviously won’t be able to wear quite as tight a fit, but you should still make sure you’re eliminating any sag at the seams (crotch, armpit, etc.) or the hems (trouser and shirt cuffs, shirt bottom, and so forth).
And, of course, if you’ve got an athletic build — say, because you do a lot of crossfit, just for example — a close fit has the added bonus of showing off your body. If you got it, flaunt it, right?
