ILLUSIONS: Overcoming the Short-guy Fear
As a short guy, I’ve always dressed quite conservatively to make sure my proportions make me look taller. I realized overtime that this was overly restricting, since I ended up sacrificing my taste in clothes to follow a standard of beauty engrained in one’s DNA. To find a compromise, I’ve learned to balance the pieces so one that flattens me is paired with one that elongates.
In this shoot, the oversized mohair scarf draws the eye vertically, distracting from the geo-printed pants that usually makes my legs look shorter. Put on a pair of Chelsea boots, the look is clean, simple and practical for cold weather. So don’t be afraid to bundle up; there’s always a way to counter that chunkiness. Happy Styling!
