15 Style Tips for Short and Chubby Men

by Vikram Sharma Textile designer

Shopping can be a daunting task, especially when it appears that current trends are unsuitable for short and chubby men. Clothing like cotton lungi or others from the rack can overpower your frame and draw attention to your small stature and weight. It can be tempting to simply find something that fits and call it a day. However, just because you're big and bulky doesn't mean you have to live your life in oversized, lifeless, and baggy clothes.

You can pull off the latest trends with a little effort and a little tinkering with your current wardrobe. Whether you want to give the appearance of height, slimming down, or simply presenting the best version of yourself, here are 15 style tips for short and chubby guys that will have you looking sharp. Incorporate these simple guidelines into your wardrobe, and your sense of style will improve immediately!

1. Avoid baggy and oversized clothing

While you may believe you are covering up, you are actually adding weight to your frame.

2. Say “no” to skinny-fit

Skinny-fit and/or tight clothing should be avoided as well. They are only flattering on a few body types.

3. Go for the waist

Shorts and pants should be worn at your natural waist, not below your tummy.

4. Clothes should fit at the biggest or widest part of your body

It's a lot easier to get your clothes like cotton vests taken in.

5. Skip the belt

Belts will only create unsightly bulges and make your pants appear ill-fitting. Instead, try suspenders.

6. Avoid bold patterns

They'll simply overwhelm you. Stick to solids and small patterns, and use your accessories to add colour.

7. Go for custom made

This is especially true when it comes to suits. Bespoke clothing is an excellent option for someone with unusual measurements.

8. Get your clothing tailored

You may cringe at the price, but having your shirts, jackets, and trousers tailored creates clothing that is tailored to your body.

9. Research speciality brands

There are stores that specialise in clothing for petite women, and there are stores that specialise in clothing for men your size.

10. Dress to add height to your frame

While not all shorter men want to give the impression of height, it can be beneficial if you want to try out the latest trends.

11. Shop online

Some online stores specialise in particular sizes. Other stores allow you to create a user profile that includes your body measurements. This way, you can find everything you're looking for while only visiting one store.

12. Stay away from horizontal stripes

They direct the viewer's attention to the widest parts of your body. Instead, opt for vertical accents such as zippers and stripes. These will draw the viewer's attention upward.

13. Black is the new black

Have you ever wondered why women cling to the "little black dress"? It's because black and dark colours like navy, charcoal grey, and brown slim you down. Dress in a single colour to slim and lengthen your frame.

14. Lighten up your pockets

Putting your wallet, keys, and phone in your pockets will only add to the weight. Get a stylish bag to keep everything in.

15. Show off your personality!

This is where accessories and footwear come into play. Add a splash of colour with unusual footwear, a tie, or headgear.

You've figured out what works for your frame as a short and chubby guy by this point. Are you prepared for a whole new world of fashion that awaits you? Begin by shopping at the right stores, having your clothes tailored, investing in a custom-made suit for the office or printed lungi for home, and adding a few accessories.

Your sense of style will improve dramatically in no time. Don't let your size define you; you can have fun experimenting with trends while also looking good. Stick to these 15 wardrobe-upgrading style tips, and you'll be able to navigate the racks and online stores with ease.
