A lot of men don’t look quite as muscular and masculine as they would like. Some have a naturally skinny build, and it’s difficult to do much of anything about it. But you actually can change your perceived musculature and masculinity through a few basic tweaks in what you wear.
There are five specific tips, outlined below, that will go a long way. But through them all, one of the most important things to keep in mind is fit. Some people think that if you’re skinny, you should get looser fitting clothes to make you look bigger, but this is actually not the case! Looser fitting clothes accentuate the way the clothing drapes on you, causing you to look thinner and heading the wrong direction!

Use the below outlined five steps if you’ve always wanted to look bigger, but couldn’t seem to put on the muscle mass! There are ways to achieve a more masculine look, and that’s what I’m going over today!

- Clothing can change the look and the silhouette of your body, and how muscular and masculine you are perceived
- When you change your habits, it feels a bit strange at first, but work through it for the perception you want to give others
- Learn to love the long-sleeved shirt. If it’s hot out, roll your sleeves up to the elbow. Look for a strong collar to add a little weight to your neck
- Blazers, sportcoats, and suit jackets. Jackets build up the shoulder, making you look stronger, and give you the V-shape
- Learn to layer. More layers, done correctly and that fit you correctly, will give you a more built look
- Use the horizontal line trick. Horizontal stripes make you look a bit stronger and bigger
- Wear size enhancing textiles or fabrics, like flannels, tweeds, corduroys, and denim.
Use clothing and the 5-tips above to build up your perceived musculature and give you a stronger and bigger look.
