If you are the skinny type (lean is a shade bigger) and do not want to look like a school boy there are quite a few things you can do to enhance your look, make you seem fuller and stylish as well. Skinny guys need to look a shade fuller than they really are and some clothes do the trick for them.
You do not have to hide behind clothes that are too big for you. You must on the other hand wear neat fitted clothes and make them work for you.Here Are Some Tips From the Dress Styles for Skinny Guys
Dress up in Layers
Layering is the first and most important point in the style book for skinny guys. Layering always works. You could team up a t-shirt with a polo shirt on top and throw on a jacket.
When you are dressing formally you can wear a nice shirt with a vest and then put on a blazer. If you have to dress up during the winter months, layers will keep you warm as well. During summer, it is better to stick to just one layer.
When you are lean and would like to look fuller, choose a fabric that is thick or heavy. Woolen fabrics, thick corduroys when in fashion look very good. They make you look fuller and when paired well with the right shirt, they would take style to a whole new level.

When you go shopping next time make sure that you buy pants that are your size. Try not to buy something that clings to your body. Try to find the balance between a slightly loose fit but make sure it is not too baggy.

Cargos are a great option because the pockets on the side will make you look bigger. Cargos are very unflattering on larger men, so take advantage of cargos and wear them well. Another great option is pleated trousers. They add visual pounds instantly.
Choose a shirt that fits well. If you buy a shirt that is a regular fit, you might sometimes find that the shoulders are drooping and it is too big around the waist. Get it tailored well to fit you but try to make sure that it is not completely slim fit.
Try turtle necks as opposed to v-necked t-shirts. V-necks show your collar bone and neck and make you look slimmer. Wear a double button jacket and when you buy a shirt, try to get one with a wider collar. This makes you look bigger than you are.
Skinny ties are accessories you cannot go wrong with and they make you look fit and fuller as opposed to lean. Strictly avoid broad ties, as they do nothing to flatter you. Ultimately it is important for you to wear your clothes and not for the clothes to wear you.
