Dressing - for the short man -

hi 'guys',

its about attire again.. I know what you're thinkin'. "now, why is this guy so very obsessed with dressing always !!" . Well, guys, when I talk about dressing, I'm not jus' talking about 'threads', I'm talking about 'confidence', I'm talking about 'non-verbal positive communication' , 'power of stature' and most importantly 'male magnetism' !

Dressing (Read 'power dressing') is the quintessential part of non-verbal communication. It is the first thing that someone notices in us when they encounter us for the first time. And it easily makes up for more than 50% of what people call the "FIRST IMPRESSION". I have read so many books (You know, stuff like 'how to impress your girl', '101 different ways to accost her', 'what you should'nt do on your first date', etc.. !!!) and one thing which I found common in all of them is the highly pronounced stress on 'Dressing sense' and 'setting the exuberance level for the occasion with your attire ! When you accost someone, you think it is your words that they're listening to ??!! Crap.. !! It is what your attire speaks, and then the rest follow. So, I will keep emphasizing on the need to 'dress for the occasion'.

well. today, I'm addressing the short men. Knowing how to dress for your body type is the key to honing your personal style. Good style involves accentuating your strengths and minimizing the appearance of your weaknesses. For the short man, this means strategically manipulating how others perceive his stature. Here are some tips for the vertically challenged man to keep in mind when shopping for clothing:

Wear one color: A shirt and pants in the same color will prevent obvious breaks in your natural frame, and as a result can produce the illusion of height.

Avoid wearing blazers or cardigans with more than three buttons; these are designed for taller men and will make you look shorter.

V-neck T-shirts and sweaters will make your torso look longer.

Opt for square-toed shoes: on a short man, long pointy shoes or really bug bulky ones will make you look less like a professional and more like a joker.

Stick with a square toe.

Avoid big prints: On smaller bodies, giant prints will overwhelm.

Keep your prints proportionate to your body by choosing smaller prints, such as micro-checks.

Choose a slimmer necktie: Large ties should be avoided, because they will make your body seem disproportionate by comparison.

I guess that will get you started for the week.

Keep looking for updates.
