If you are a skinny man, we understand that you always wanted to look more muscular than you actually are. But, just a disclaimer. Looking skinny does not make you look less attractive or make people think that you are not as confident as other muscular-looking men. It is indeed just perfect for who you are. With that being said, there are actually many other ways for skinny men to look more muscular other than to hit the gym and build their muscles.
A skinny man knows that hitting the gym to build muscle can take time. It becomes harder if you have a crazy fast metabolism that prevents you to gain weight and build muscle to make you look muscular. But with a little bit of knowledge and also style tricks, you can make that skinny physique appear a tad more muscular. By wearing the right clothes, the right way, you can create that strong masculine impression even before you build your muscle.
7 style tips for a skinny guy to look more muscular:
1) Wear Lighter Colors
Wear lighter colors like white, beige, or pastels. Many people know that darker colors slim you down, but few know that lighter colors have the opposite effect. This is also why rooms with lighter walls feel like they have more space than same-sized rooms with darker walls. Another reason light colors will work better for you is that they show off what little muscle definition you have. Since shades are more apparent on a white shirt than a dark one, they will better accentuate your body’s natural bulges. So you may not have huge pecs, but wearing lighter clothes can still call some attention to them.
2) Invisible Layers
With each layer you add, you gain a little bit of breadth. Each layer on its own won’t add much but combined they can make quite a difference. You want to layer your clothes from thin to thick and from light to sturdy. Start with the lightest fabric and get sturdier with each layer you wear on top of it. Likewise, you want your clothes to go from light patterns and textures to stronger ones. And since all your layers except your possible undershirt should be visible, you want them to be coordinated. All the colors in your outfit should complement each other.
3) Wear Outerwear With Collars
A thin neck is a sign of weakness and even cowardice. That is why skinny guys are advised to wear outerwear with collars. Sturdy necklines signal strength and power. Turtle necks are the classic choice to create this effect, but you have many more options. You can find collared sweaters and cardigans in many different models, both classic and modern.
4) Try The French Tuck
French tuck helps male the close to be closer to your body and also to expose your waistlines for a casual rugged look. The key to doing the French tuck the right way is to not just tuck it directly in at the center of your waistlines. You want to go a little bit off-center either to the right or the left. Also, don’t go too far around with the tuck. You really just tuck just a little part of your shirt.
5) Cuff Your Sleeve
If you are a slim or skinny guy, you might want to roll up your sleeves to make your look a bit cooler. Make sure the roll end just below your elbow. It makes you look rugged and pretty masculine.
6) Pad Your Ankles
Sometimes, shoes do not fit well with skinny legs. That could cause little discomfort when skinny guys wear their favorite shoes to go out. To fix that, use your socks and made them like a scrunchie and put it on your ankles. By doing it that way, skinny guys could have better-fitted shoes to walk with even though it looks kind of weird.
7) Wear Small Accessories
Skinny guys don’t have it made in the accessories department. It is much harder than you think to find clothes and accessories that fit and flatter at the same time. Say no to big and oversized accessories because it will only make you look slimmer. Slim ties, narrow sunglasses, and smaller watches can help to enhance your look.

(Video) Turn Anxiety Into Confidence With Tom Hardy’s 4 Rules!
Not all butterflies in your tummy mean a good sign. At some point, we all tend to experience this uneasy or tense feeling when we are worried or fearful. For instance, you could be scared and nervous about taking an exam, a medical test, or a job interview.
Sometimes we can get anxious when meeting people too. Being anxious can be a normal thing but for some people, they find it difficult to control it because they’re just anxious about almost everything!
Here are some symptoms of anxiety:
- Nervous, restless, or tensed
- Increased heart rate
- Breathing rapidly (hyperventilating)
- Feeling weak or tired
- Experiencing gastrointestinal (GI) problems
- Trouble concentrating or thinking
But did you know that you can turn that weakness into a strength? Tom Hardy, in full Edward Thomas Hardy, is a British actor who was known for his striking good looks, idiosyncratic personality, and cerebral performances in both cult films and mainstream blockbusters. Tom faced social anxiety while he was growing up and despite that, he somehow transformed himself into a full confident figure. If you would like the same confidence, follow Tom’s 4 simple rules on how you can turn your anxiety into confidence in any situation.
1. Be willing to polarize
The first step Tom takes in the process to be confident is by not making everyone like him. Tom accepted the fact that eventually, some people will not like him. During an interview question about ‘what kind of snack he would be’, Tom said he would be a bag of twiglet. The way he explained it is so strong. Whether someone likes him or not, he is who he is and nothing would change that. Rather than having no impression, this mindset gives someone a strong impression of you.
2. Allow yourself to have authentic reactions
Every time we meet someone new, we always hope that they would like us. But with Tom’s method, it’s the total opposite which to see if he likes that person! Be genuine and react to others depending on their actions. Often it is easy to do this among our friends but when it comes to impressing someone, they lose that authenticity. Signs of these are like laughing awkwardly at bad jokes, pretending that a boring conversation is interesting, and smiling even when they are insulted. To get around this, stop that thought of whether people like you but make it into if you like them. This will boost your confidence instead of making it feel like a try an error thing.
3. Stop trying to look flawless
Like it or not, every one of us has flaws because we are after all human! During an interview, Tom openly admits that he’s soft and sacred, which most people would hesitate to admit. Tom’s fear hasn’t completely dissolved but he’s learning confidence while experiencing fear. Admitting your flaws shows that you’re being very honest and straightforward. By doing so you have two benefits: people will sense that you are being original and not faking into somebody you are not and two, by sharing your flaws, you will slowly build confidence in yourself. You eventually avoid the shadow rule which is hiding parts of yourself for being more acceptable to people.
4. Prioritize your own comfort
When you feel comfortable, I tell you, your confidence level will just kick it. Some people try to blend in by doing what others do. This, however, makes you feel more nervous because you would keep asking yourself if you’re doing it right. By prioritizing your own comfort, it shows that you are not focused on other people’s approval
Apart from Tom’s method of dealing with anxiety, here are some other ways you can treat anxiety:
- Staying active and exercising
- Eating healthy
- Getting enough sleep
- Practice breathing
- Avoid unhealthy habits like alcohol or smoking
It is absolutely okay to feel a little anxious. Sometimes that anxious feeling turns out to be something good. But bear in mind too much of it can affect your lifestyle and eventually your health. Anxiety is not a weakness. With it, you can turn it into the platform of your confidence, just like how Tom Hardy did!
