Ways to camouflage a beer belly

September 28, 2022

Has it occurred to you that no matter what you wear, your beer belly has a sneaky way to creep up to the human gaze, every single time? If your answer is yes, my friend, you’re at the right stop! It can be a strenuous job to hide a beer gut. However, it is not impossible if you follow our simple guide! Choosing your garments wisely and working up with the colour palette can do wonders when it comes to hiding a beer belly. Here are some ways that you can use to camouflage a beer belly.

Experiment with proportions

As a matter of fact, one won’t notice your pauch when you’re rocking a long t-shirt and fitted pants. Going for a contrasting proportion would hide your beer gut as it creates the imitation of a balanced look. You can even go for prints as they can draw away the attention from your belly. However, choose your pattern wisely as the wrong print can be unflattering at times. Choose smaller prints and instead of horizontal stripes, opt for the vertical ones.

Shop for tailored pants

When shopping for pants, always choose mid-rise. Mid-rise pants cinch your waist, creating a well-built look. One can even go for a nice, tailored fit when it comes to chinos and trousers. Once you are fixed with your bottom wear it will create the illusion of a more flatten tummy with which you can easily create a well-put together silhouette of yourself.

When in doubt, layer up

When it comes to hiding your beer gut, there’s no better and easiest way than to layer up. Also, when it comes to up-styling a basic outfit, layering comes in handy! Throw in a scarf, blazer or a shrug of similar or even contrasting colour to your regular outfit. Going for a nice-fitted jacket can easily draw the attention away from your belly.

Avoid extremely loose-fitted clothes

Contrary to the popular belief that loose clothes can cover your belly fat, they can actually highlight the very being you’re trying to hide! We get it, oversized hoodies and tees are the rage. However, wearing extremely loose fitted clothes can seem to be unpleasant and unflattering to the eyes. Even if you’re shopping for the ‘oversized look’, try not to go too overboard with the bagginess.

Go for darker colours

We all must have heard to opt for darker shades when it comes to camouflaging a problem area. When it comes to darker coloured clothes, they give us a slimming appearance to the silhouette and draw attention away from the belly, as compared to lighter colours. Colours like grey, navy, charcoal and obviously the classic black work well for men with a beer gut. To play with colours one can also go for darker counterparts of other shades.
