    Skiny and not tall

    I'm 1:75 meters and 62kg and 33 years. What styles should I avoid? Iím always unsure of what will work.

    I'd try and go for trousers that have a higher rise than is common - suggesting greater leg length. I'd also wear jackets that have a buttoning point that is at the waist, or certainly slightly lower than is currently trendy, to create long elegant lapel lines that suggest height (the Duke of Windsor, who took dressing excessively seriously often used to only button the lower button on his jacket - a look which can work well with double breasted jackets but best avoided on single breasted ones). Higher gorges (the join between the lapel and neck roll) on a jacket will also tend to flatter - but these days most jackets are cut with a very high gorge.
