Understanding the type of man's body
We men are usually distributed among five body types: the inverted triangle, the rectangle, the triangle, the oval and the trapezoid. This according to your physiological distribution. The type of body you have is usually a matter of genetics, however, depending on whether you exercise or not and above all, the diet or eating habits that you bring can be accentuated or disguised. Determining what your body type is is simple. What shape does it represent? Look in a mirror and consider which of them you can fit into. If you do not hit on it, ask for help from someone who simply tells you which of these five figures looks more like you. This will help you know what to use and what not to use enhance your qualities.
# 1 Body inverted triangle
The first of the body types is the inverted triangle. With this type of body everything is about balancing proportions. Or what is the same, try to look a little wider down, to compensate for the wide width of the back and shoulders. You are obviously someone who trains your upper body, who enjoys going and training your shoulders, arms, back and chest, but with this type of body and how to dress it, it's all about balance it as much as you can. The focus of attention will be the upper part of your body, therefore, it is about Get attention with your lower train too. In this way, the lower tip of the triangle will soften a little and you will look more proportionate.
#two Body rectangle
This is probably the least flattered of the body types. It occurs when you have exactly the same width in your shoulders as in your hip. Here what you should do is Widen your shoulders to give proportion. You must do the opposite of the inverted triangle body type and try to draw attention upwards. You will want to do everything necessary to give a volume effect on your back and shoulders so that they look wider than your hip, giving you a more masculine look. The reason you want to do this is to make your silhouette look like the trapezoid, the most attractive body type.
#3 Body triangle
The third of the body types. Having this type of body does not mean that you have extra kilos, but it is a body with a tendency to abdominal area and prominent hips, even more than your back and shoulders. Therefore, it is not necessarily to look thinner, but also to look bigger in appropriate areas to see you more proportionate. If it's your case, just for a little beer consumption, leave the desserts and start exercising. But seriously, what you need to do is bring attention to your upper area, away from the abdominal area. Directly to your shoulders, away from your waist.
#4 Body oval
The body type with more circular aspect. If this is your body type, You must extend your torso and expand your shoulders. Once again, it's about looking for proportion, looking away from the central area and drawing attention to your upper part. Another important trick here is that it is vital that your clothes will fit you. If you get big (happens often in this type of body), you will see disproportionate. So put aside that belief that big clothes favors you.
#5 Body trapezoid
The most desirable of the body types. With this body everything is easier. You can enter a store, select a garment that you like and you will be almost perfect. It's the kind of body that everyone else tries to look like, so basically you should only highlight your own form as it is. This type of body is wide shoulders, muscular chest and it becomes smaller slightly in the abdominal area. It is usually proportionate and masculine. Here you just have to follow the basic rules to look great.
Advantages of dressing according to your body type
Now that you know your body type, you should assume that each has its advantages and disadvantages, therefore, using the right type of clothing is about select the one that will hide what you do not want to be noticed and will highlight those areas that you should highlight. The trick is to know that the type of male body that is generally more attractive is one that has a broad back, big shoulders and slightly smaller hips (not too much in relation to the upper part).
# 1 Inverted triangle
It's about balancing your proportions. For this one of the things you can do is use a belt. Divide your outfits in two with this technique. This will draw attention to your hips and divert attention from your upper body. If the belt is striking it is even better, although the real challenge here is to find garments that fit your size. Normally you will be fitted up and loose in the middle part.
The crossed jackets You can also consider them, since they will widen your torso. This type of garment has all its details in the middle area of the body. The pullovers or jerseys with V-neck They will have the same effect, making you see more proportionate. On the other hand, you must avoid wearing pants skinny or slim fit, since they will adjust too much to your legs making evident the imbalance of your body type. Another thing to avoid is the use of jackets with shoulder pads, your body type will go better type jackets bomber or college, that have no structure.
# 2 Rectangle
The first thing is to use jackets with shoulder pads, totally the opposite of the above. Use blazers with wide flap It will also help you to give a feeling of volume and, with it, proportion. Using several layers of clothing on the torso is also an option to consider. Use a button-down shirt under a pullover or jumper, for example. This will help you draw attention up and see you bigger. You could even venture with three layers for those days of intense cold.
The other thing you want to do is make sure that your upper train garments cut near the waist or around it. If these are very long, they will accentuate your rectangular shape. You should also choose items that are looser at the top and narrow as they fall. Use horizontal stripes on the torso It will help draw attention to the top. Use them to obtain a balance. Conversely, avoid always wearing crossed jackets. The amount of accessories that have in the torso will draw too much attention in your middle area and is what we want to avoid. Try to use clothes that fit your body as much as possible.
# 3 Triangle
Put yourself vertical stripes It can be an excellent method to divert attention from your abdominal area and climb up to your upper body. You can also use a piece that has horizontal stripes on the part of your chest and shoulders, but not in the middle area. As with the previous body type, you can (or almost should) use jackets that are padded on the shoulders, which will give you more structure.
Use bright colors on your top train, also prints or anything that catches your attention. Or, on the contrary, you can use dark colors in your middle and low zone, since these help disguise what you do not want to be noticed. As for what you should avoid, the first thing are the poles. The reason is because this will lengthen your neck and upper area, making your abdomen look even rounder. The horizontal stripes in the abdominal area are not a good idea for you, nor the tight jeans in the lower area, as they will make you look bigger up.
# 4 Oval
Vertical stripes! They are your allies in the attempt to make your figure look more elongated, in addition to bringing attention directly to your shoulders. You must also make sure your pants fit you, wearing bigger pants can mean that you look smaller or that they fall on your shoes, drawing attention below and making you look rounded.
As for what you should avoid, first of all you will find the boots, although many boys use them to add a touch of masculinity to their outfit, in your case you should try to avoid them since they can make you see even lower than you possibly are. The belts Stamped or colorful are not your friends, because they will highlight your rounded shape and is what you want to avoid. In these cases, go for something more classic that allows the attention to your upper train which is where it should go.
# 5 Trapezoid
If you have this type of body, we have excellent news for you, if you use common sense and basic norms, You have no restrictions! With this type of body You can use almost any garment, since everything will look good and tailored. It is the form that all other bodies try to imitate. So dare with different outfits and combinations, always keeping in mind the basics.

Remember that apart from being low, you should consider what type of body you have, of those mentioned above. In this case we advise you to use clothing Slim fit or skinny fit, with which you feel more comfortable.
