27 Outfits For Big Guys: How to Dress Well As An Overweight Man

Finding the right outfits for big guys is never an easy task. Not only is your choice limited, but sometimes these products are not as stylish as the regular fits. As if that wasn’t enough, the majority of salespeople don’t know how to dress an overweight man.


Big Man Style Tips to Live By

Luckily, there are a few tricks you can utilize to nail the big man style:

  1. Find a fit for yourself. No matter how many fashion blogs you visit, it all comes down to one simple thing: you need to find a style that suits you. Not only should this style be suitable for your body, but it also needs to reflect your persona and what you like to wear.
  2. Always go with solid colors. Let’s be honest: most guys don’t know how to match colors and styles. This is why it is much better to go with casual fashion for big guys. Simplistic color combinations and designs will always work, and you don’t need to invest yourself as much.
  3. Materials can make a difference. When it comes to outfits for chubby guys, you need to pay extra attention to the material. Some of them can be really thick and can add to your already sizable frame. So, always try to take materials that are, or at least look, a bit thinner.


Big Men Outfits That Are Flattering & Stylish

Although there is very little you can do to completely hide your belly, you can at least try to conceal it a bit. The black color makes men look thinner, and it is the best option for the upper and especially stomach region.

4. Black Jack

If you're looking for a specific piece of clothes for your abdomen, you should definitely give a good red t-shirt a try. This color is a bit stronger and doesn't go well with everything, but if you nail it, you can leave an amazing first impression.


9. Black Leather Fashion

A great look across the board is black fashion, specifically black leather in menswear. It works extra well for plus-size guys, and it will make them more macho on top of everything.
