Love the fit, love the outfit for the most part. Although if I may, and perhaps it's just the camera, but the similarity in colour between your jacket and shirt bleaches the outfit out a little, maybe better served with a different shirt.

Those jeans look like a great fit, but since when did R&B make a 35" inseam?

I think any sort of slimming effect from vertical stripes would be minimal and not really worth it in any case.
Well, when you're wearing a jacket over the horizontal stripes it does break it up and cancels out any widening effect. In the pic with the BR sweater (which is the only one I should have referenced),you can see that it's adding width to your body, so I say there's truth to the theory particularly when the stripes are so wide.

Yeah, although I personally think the reason that particular sweater doesn't look particularly good is because its too baggy. BR is just not very fitted, although I think it would have looked fine with a jacket as well. If I'd sized down to a medium in that sweater I think it would have looked better anyways. The pose is also a bit slouchy and isn't particularly flattering. I don't think it's generally a very good picture. The one with the APC sweater is better.

not to sound like a complete asshole but your posture/pose also is a way to appear slimmer...i don't know, not expecting you to "pose" as no one really does, and i'm sure you don't walk around with your arms like that, but I'm a big believer that body posture is the much more important than any piece of clothing..

I agree. Hehe the last picture was a bit difficult just because of the fit of that particular jacket. I need to figure out a better place to take pictures, too.

to be honest I'm really bad with colors, the more colorful clothing I've had before has been overall too tacky, and I havent been able to find or buy anything decent recently.

I do like muted colors like black, grey, some shades of brown and olive greeb etc, but most of my stuff is pretty muted also because I dont know what to get

Maybe you can experiment by degrees. For example, start with off primary colors, maybe for accents to begin with? For example, in your last outfit (with the N(N) hoodie,) you could have worn, say, a port colored tee, or conversely worn a wine, forest, or muted teal scarf.

Take a pair of natural colored chucks. The navy/midnight and dark red accents are what really makes that colorway work. Otherwise, the natural canvas canvas on white rubber just looks sort of washed out.

I think that you do proportions really well, just that using some color as accents would really make your outfits pop.
