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 is Tumelo’s makeover:
He is a rectangle shape, which means that his shoulders and hips are a similar width. The aim is to give his shape definition by making his shoulders appear wider and his hips look smaller proportionally.
His look before:
While his slim leg jeans work well for him, the baggy jersey makes Tumelo look more shapeless that he is
What I did for Tumelo’s makeover and why:
- The jersey with the collar detail creates the illusion that his shoulders are broader than they are.
- The fit of the jersey makes his waist and hips look smaller than his shoulders proportionally.
- The slim leg trousers also work to create the illusion that his shoulders are wider in comparison and gives his shape balance.
