Hey I have really long skinny legs and it gets me down because they make me look ridiculous!
I need your help!
Should I wear my jeans low (but obviously not as low as you see gangster rappers wearing their jeans) or should I wear my jeans up? Which will make me look less lanky?
Should I roll up the ends of my jeans- will this make me look less lanky?
Any tips for looking less lanky and covering up my beanpole legs?
Go for decent quality straight leg and dark colour.
If light works for you then wear light, but as a tall guy ive always found slightly darker denim works best. I guess it depends what look you go for. Never wear same colour trousers and shirt, you need to break up the colours to make you appear more in proportion. Keep clothes fitted, probably best not to tuck your shirt in.
Instead of trying to 'cover up' your skinny legs and find workarounds to looking like a lamppost why don't you get access to some weights, do some squats and actually do something about your problem.
Wear shirts as fitted as possible, it sounds stupid but otherwise you'll look swamped
Thats surely the simple solution
Embrace the lankiness!
Im pretty lanky, and I when I go out I wear dark jeans and an untucked shirt.
Wow, you know what would make you look less skinny all over? Building muscle and not being skinny anymore! How about that??
Like I already said, the easiest way to solve your problem isn't to inadequately hide it by wearing certain types of clothes, it's to actually solve it and bulk up a bit.
I would say that training with weights isn't necessarily going to help however I would avoid wearing vertical stripes and always make sure they you stand tall and straight and try to be more confident. I know of someone who is evidently taller than average and they are acutely aware of this so they hunch themselves over which looks terrible so don't do this.
Another factor to remember is that most people wold love to be tall (most people do not think of others as 'lanky') and some girls find height attractive in a guy.
Yeah I know that was a lot of text so basically try and be more confident, avoid vertical stripes and try not to focus on the percieved issue too much.
Hope this helps,
Also you are probably not as lanky as you think
dude embrace the lankyness. If you hate your legs that much join a gym and do squats, or if you can live with thin legs which im sure you can then chil out dude, there are millions of people in the world with much worse physical problems than being lanky.
Be happy dude
Don't wear baggy clothes, it makes you look worse. Get some tight jeans.
