This Is How A Man-Makeover Can Boost Your Appearance

A man makeovers!? Yes, guys. Makeovers are no longer just for ladies. Personal stylist, Tracy Gold, shows us the difference the right clothing makes.

I recently conducted a few male makeovers in the Kurt Geiger store in Sandton City to demonstrate the difference the right clothing can make to a man’s look.

This Fabian’s makeover

His build:

Fabian has very broad shoulders with a narrow torso and legs.  The aim is to de-emphasise his shoulders and add a little bulk to his torso and legs.

His look before:

This baggy jersey fits his shoulders, but gives his torso no shape

What I did for Fabian’s makeover and why:

  • The v-neck of the pullover works to de-emphasise his shoulders, drawing the eye down his body instead of across his shoulders.
  • The fact that the pullover is sleeveless works well as it doesn’t have to fit his shoulders and fit his torso.
  • He can wear this pullover over baggy tee shirts to give them shape.
  • The pullover adds a bit of bulk to his torso, giving his build balance.
  • The slim leg trousers (rather than skinny styles) works to add a little bit of extra bulk to his legs.
