How to dress for your body type and shape part 4

You may not like it but human beings like proportional looks and proportions change with the society you live in, as well as age but overall, a non-extreme look will always be more timeless and classic and flattering for you. Over time proportions change. If you wear a suit with a lapel that is about 3-3 ½ inched, that is neither too slim or too wide, you could have worn that throughout history and never be out of style. If you look back in history and look at the 1920’s, you saw men with slim pants and slim jackets, the 30's had changed. Everything got wider, you had more drape, wider lapels, full cut trousers with a high-rise. The 40's were impacted by the war so you saw single-breasted jackets, no double-breasted jackets because they had to save fabric. In the 50's the things got slimmer again. Skinny ties and skinny lapels.

General tip for any body type:

If you have really wide shoulders, you want to give the appearance of being a little slimmer. If you have very slim shoulders, you want to give the appearance of being a little wider. Overall, the extremes are something you want to avoid.

Body type number 4: Trapezoid

It is wide in the shoulders and then not super slim but slightly slimmer on the hips. It is also a very masculine look and it is somewhere in between 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. Slimmer fit pants or some fuller cut pants because you are not overly slim down there. Again, avoid extremes, no super wide lapels with super skinny pants. Otherwise, you can basically wear anything for your body type.
