Fashioning for Your Body Type

Fashioning a Date Look for your Body Type

Most women think men are totally unselfconscious about their physiques, but most men would (secretly) disagree. Know how to dress your body in order to play up its strengths and play down its weaknesses.

First things first, identify your body type but do not let it limit your fashion choices. Being self aware about your physique can help you hone in on the right clothing choices for you. Choose your body type from the following descriptions below and embrace your body type casting to help you find a jacket that suits your style:

You waste no space in your closet or in your life. For clothes to be the right length, you usually have to get them shortened. You may not realize how lucky you are-it's easier to take things in than to let them out.
    Modern Jacket
  • Pick a: Modern Silhouette Jacket. Modern silhouettes fit close to the body but never feel restrictive. The modern jacket is slightly shorter, with a higher armhole and softer shoulder. It also has squarer shoulders, a nipped-in waist with side vents and a narrower lapel.
You've got a bigger physique, and those few extra pounds you carry around are probably around your middle. Not to worry, bigger can look better with proper selections in regard to silhouette.
    Two Button Jacket
  • Pick a: Two- Button Jacket: The most common jacket, it's flattering because its V points the eye to the slimmest point of a man's waist (the area near the top button).
You've always believed that life is a contact sport. Your arms, calves, and glutes are well developed. Showing off those long hours at the gym can be easy with the right fit.
    Three Button Jacket
  • Pick a: Three-Button Jacket. The most traditional jacket is also universally flattering. It is derived from English riding styles, so this jacket allows for movement and your muscular build.
You've kept waiting for your body to fill out but it never did. While this may have been annoying in high school, your long, lean body type now gives you permission to wear pretty much anything you want.
    One Button Jacket
  • Pick a: One-Button Jacket. This style reflects where fashion has been heading during recent years. It looks great in peaked-lapel suits and is commonly found in tuxedos and among less formal offerings.
