This Is How A Man-Makeover Can Change Your Look

Smart shirt fashion style

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 is Tumelo’s makeover:

His build:

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.
