How to Dress for Your Body Type: The Trapezoid

It can be difficult to find the right outfits that flatter you if you are not fully aware of your body type. Knowing what body type you are and what silhouettes work best and which ones to stay away from can greatly help to make you look like a well-dressed gentleman.

Over the next few weeks we will address each of the 5 Body Types.

4. The Trapezoid

The next body type is the trapezoid. It is wide in the shoulders and then not super slim but slightly slimmer on the hips. It’s also a very masculine look. It’s somewhere in between the rectangular and inverted triangle. You can wear almost anything but I suggest that you avoid something extremely wide on top and at the bottom.

You can even go with something slimmer like slimmer fit pants or some fuller cut pants because you’re not overly slim down there. Again, avoid the extremes, no super wide lapels with super skinny pants. Otherwise, you can wear anything.
