Wear a solid coloured jacket To cut bulk If your upper body is bulkier, then dress simple. The best way to do this is by wearing a solid-colour blazer. Anything with patterns will magnify the bulk. You can also wear your navy suit jacket as a separate if you need to unwind on a business trip. "Patterns like pinstripes, chalk-stripes and large plaids are difficult to pair with casual bottoms," says Delhi-based designer Jattinn Kochhar. Suit jackets can be paired with straight-fit jeans. "Throw in a t-shirt and you are ready to head out," says Kochhar. Jazz it up: A hat can change your appearance in a jiffy. "Get a narrow-brimmed hat like a trilly; it goes with most casual outfits. If you think the hat is too high on the crown then make it look shorter by putting a wider band on it," says celebrity stylist Shayal Seth.
