Opt for Slimmer Fits

Yes, opt for slimmer fits! Baggy or loose fitting clothes are not appropriate for you if you want to look taller. They even make you look smaller like babies in over-sized clothes. Remember the 90s? Rappers like Tupac and Ice Cube looked smaller in appearance because of their baggy clothes.

Therefore, avoid anything baggy or loose fitting. Instead go for slimmer fits. The clothes stick to your body frame and tend to give the illusion of height.

Interestingly, it is even becoming a common trend for men to roll up the bottoms of their trousers nowadays. You will even find celebrities like Ryan Reynolds and David Beckham following this trend.

Don’t Go for Loud Prints and Colors

Loud prints and colors can easily draw attention to your height. Such clothes attract attention easily. Any one, who focuses his or her attention on you will notice you height. This will ruin your attempt to appear taller.

It is advisable to go for neutral colors. Such colors will help you to look taller than bright colors will. Tonal dressing is recommended for men who want to look taller when dressed.

Wear Accessories Higher Up

If you love to wear accessories as a man, wear your accessories higher up on your body. This will draw attention towards the top of your body and make you appear taller.

Anyway, try to keep jewelry to a minimum level. You may wear a ring or a necklace. However, make sure they are quite thin in structure. Why? Well, thick, heavy pieces of jewelry drown you and become too overpowering on your attire. This may then make you look smaller instead of taller.

Aside wearing your accessories higher up, you may go for a hat like flat cap or fedora too. You may also wear a pocket square. All these contribute towards creating an illusion of you being taller than you really are.


Dressing for your height is not as challenging as you might have thought. So do you want to dress to look taller? Now, you know what to wear. Just follow the tips above and watch the magic that would happen next.
