How to Dress to Appear Thinner Today

Whether there has been a recent weight gain or you are just attempting to appear thinner, follow these simple tips to create the illusion you have lost 10 lbs today.

1. Accessorize: Don’t be afraid to add some shades, a tie,  or a scarf but keep the frames of the glasses small and the stripes or pattern on the scarf and tie vertical.

2. Posture and Height: Choose a boot or dress shoe with a bit of a heel and stand up straight! By just rolling your shoulders back and lifting your chest as you sit or walk, you can appear 2 inches taller (and thinner).

3. Color Theory: In general, darker colors create the illusion that one is thinner. Choose top layers in shades of gray, charcoal, navy and black.

4. Tee shirts: A high V neck tee creates a thinner look than that of a normal round neck tee.  Key word is “high” V neck. Let’s not show too much chest, okay?

5. Jeans and Chinos: Darker colored jeans and chinos are the best choice for you. Try a chino in this season’s army or olive green.

6. Dress Shirts: Keep stripes vertical and make sure they fit like a glove. A shirt that is too bulky at the waist will make you appear larger than you are as will a shirt that is too tight in the chest and waist. Try a custom dress shirt.

7.  Sweater: Layering a light weight knit V neck sweater over a button down dress shirt is the best choice to appear more trim. The bulkier the sweater, the larger you will appear. Try a nice merino wool or cashmere v neck sweater.

8. Dress slacks: Again, the lighter the shade, the larger you may appear so choose a darker shade for your suit or dress slack. Avoid a cuff if possible and the less pleats you can go with, the better. Flat front is my recommendation.

9. Suit Coats and Sports Coats: Choose a 3 button single breasted suit. A one button coat may appear to pull a bit if you are heavier in the mid-section so the 3 button will give you more room. The two places your coat must fit well is the waist and the shoulder. If it is too large or small, it will add an additional 5 lbs. to your appearance.

10. Topcoats: When buying a topcoat, make sure you have that sport coat on to ensure there is room for it. Choose an overcoat that hits no more than 4 inches above your knee.

Now, get out there!

Dress Well! Be Well!

Wearing custom dress shirts tells the world you have class

Are you a parent having a hard time deciding what to wear to your child’s next soccer or baseball game?

Dress For Success

Deciding to teach your children they need to dress for success in the future by wearing executive custom dress shirts during social meetings, could be the choice that helps your children be more successful in the years ahead.

Set an Example for Your Children

By making this choice you also set an example for your children to emulate that could help make them better parents to their own children in the future. You can gain the respect of coaches tasked with teaching your children how to play the game and possibly help your children take their love of sports to the next level.

See What Other Parents Are Wearing

The next time you go to watch your child play the game they love, take a look at what other parents coming to the game are wearing, and the various reactions of both coaches and other parents to the way they’re attired.

Stand Out in the Crowd

Parents dressing for success by wearing custom dress shirts will stand out among the crowd of parents standing on the sidelines. The children of these parents will also gain more respect from other players, parents and coaches, and could be asked if they want to take part in more team activities in the future.

Dress Your Best

Making the decision to dress your best in a great looking shirt could be the difference that helps your child rise to greater and greater achievements in both sports and life.

Make Investment in Your Appearance

Tell the world and your children that you care about your physical appearance by making an investment in their future sports endeavours with the purchase of executive custom dress shirts.

Dress For Success

Dress for success in this way for every future organized sports activity your child takes part in and you could find your child is a lot more focused while playing the game. Years down the road, if your child becomes a professional in the sport they love, you can look back on this decision as one that helped make your child a professional sports athlete dressing for success on and off the field of play.
