Style tips for short men If you are a short man who wishes to appear taller, the overall goal is to choose clothing that makes the body appear longer. This is done, in part, by creating a straight, streamlined silhouette. In general, clothing should not be baggy or otherwise ill-fitting; you want to create a clean "straight up-and-down" line with little interruptions, as this adds the illusion of length.
Another problem with baggy and ill-fitting clothing on a shorter man is that it ends up making you look like you are swimming in your clothes, as though you borrowed them from your larger brother or uncle.
Of course, this also tends to make you look shorter as well. Pants For all pants, including jeans, make sure your pants are hemmed to the proper length so that they break only slightly.
Short Jackets. Short and sweet. Give your outfits added style with short jackets like blazers and drape-front styles. Whether you’re headed to work or out for a night on the town, snag the perfect jacket to complete your look!
