Trapezoidal body

This body shape has open shoulders and chest, but the waist and hips are narrower. A typical example is Michael Phelps. In this particular shape, it is especially important to pay attention to the imbalance that exists between the upper and lower parts of the body, so as not to stress it even more.

How to dress:

  • Wear a belt low so you can draw attention to your hips and not from the waist up.
  • Choose T-shirts and shirts with stripes and try to have the stripes around the stomach and not on the chest.
  • Choose shirts and sweaters with a V neckline to draw attention away from the chest. V acts like an arrow for men, showing us to look lower.
  • Wear statement trousers with prints to draw attention to your feet or alternatively jeans with rinses.
  • Choose cross blazer to enlarge your body’s torso, always in proportion to your shoulders.


Rectangular body

Here now we have the rectangular body, in which the shoulders, waist, and hips have the same width.
The goal you should have if you belong to this category, is to make your shoulders look bigger from the waist and down to look more gathered. In other words, to create the illusion that you have a trapezoidal shape.

How to dress:

  • Wear a men’s blazer that adds more volume to the shoulders, while it is narrow in the armpits and emphasizes your waist.

  • To draw attention to the top of your torso, choose T-shirts with a twisted neckline.
  • In no case do not choose T-shirts  with rectangular prints, such as t- shirts with photos.


Triangular body

In this particular body type, the shoulders and chest are narrower than the waist and hips and of course they emphasize more than the waist down a male body. Here you should make sure to emphasize more the top of your torso, in order to reduce the difference that exists.
