How to Walk Like a Male Model


Modeling women sashay down the catwalk. Modeling men command it. You can use that same level of command when you walk like a male model through a crowded room or down a city street. Even if you are not wearing the latest Gucci suit, you can get the same kind of coos the Gucci guys get. You'll need to call up a lot of confidence and follow a few specific steps.

  • Stand tall. Here’s where Mom yelling at you about your posture really pays off. Practice by standing with your legs shoulder-width apart. Roll your shoulders up and around in a loop, opening your chest. Imagine a string through the top of your skull, pulling your spine into a straight line.

  • Take long strides. Male models never piddle about with baby steps. Practice taking the longest strides you can, lunging into the distance. Refine that by taking strides a little longer than you would in your normal walking.

  • Swing your arms slightly with your steps. You want to look natural, and people naturally swing their arms when they walk. Don’t pump them back and forth like a power walker or soccer player, but let them cascade by your sides in rhythm with your steps.

  • Adjust your eyes. You need to look straight ahead or slightly upward, which is where you want to go. You can stealthily glance in front of you to make sure you don’t step in dog doo, but don’t walk around staring at the ground.

  • Pump yourself with confidence. These posture tips will help exude physical confidence, but you need to be a mental giant as well. Stand tall in front of a mirror, gaze into your eyes and repeat the phrase: “I am cooler than a sports bar,” or something to that effect.

Tips & Warnings

  • Practice your walk in front of long mirrors, such as at a gym or dance studio, so you see if you look like a male model or a jerk.
  • Don’t be stiff. If you find yourself getting neck cramps, loosen up. Exhale into a limp rag doll and then deeply inhale into a standing tall man. Repeat this five times to give you a little movement.
