BODY STYLE TIPS: LARGE PT.1

LARGE: Large body types vary widely. You may be tall with a massive frame or short and heavyset. You’re above average weight or size. If you fall into the latter category, you’ll also be quite wide around your torso.

FIT:
-Select clothing that skims over your frame, as it will smooth out your physique.
-Your jackets should be a little longer in order to provide more coverage of your posterior.
-Choose tops, blazers and outerwear with slightly structured shoulders, as these will give you an authoritative air and will direct attention to your face.
-For jeans and trousers, opt for a relaxed fit rather than straight.
-Ask your tailor to let your pants fall near your heel, to give the illusion of longer leaner legs.
-Do not wear oversize/baggy clothing.

LARGE: Large body types vary widely. You may be tall with a massive frame or short and heavyset. You’re above average weight or size. If you fall into the latter category, you’ll also be quite wide around your torso.

TIPS:
-Anything that makes you look taller helps.
-Anything bulky should go, along with pleated pants, bulky wool sweaters and puffer vests as they add unnecessary padding to your frame.
-Stick to single-breasted jackets in thinner fabrics, using them to disguise love handles and conceal a belly.
-Just make sure your jackets have either a single vent or no vent, as double-vented jackets call more attention to the size of your backside.
-Three button jackets look best on large men.
-V-neck shirts are a plus.

LARGE: Large body types vary widely. You may be tall with a massive frame or short and heavyset. You’re above average weight or size. If you fall into the latter category, you’ll also be quite wide around your torso.

COLORS AND PATTERNS:
-Stick to a lot of dark colors, like dark grays, browns, navy, and black. These shades visually reduce a larger body frame.
-Dark-colored clothing should be worn over the areas of your body that protrude the most, such as your midsection or rear, for example.
-The hues and shades in your outfits should all come from the same color family (monochromatic), as too many contrasting shades will seem to cut you in half, emphasizing a large middle and making your legs seem shorter.
-Large patterns only emphasize your heavyset frame.
-Say no yo lightly colored bottoms.
