Who would have thought that ‘nerdy’ came to be something trendy and chic? Years back, being a nerd was unpopular and looked down on, but today everything is different. Today, nerdy look stands for confident, stylish, sexy, and seductive, but loses none of its initial charm and appeal.
For those who are willing to embrace a full-nerdy look, as well as for those who would like to add a touch of it to their own style, check out several tips we have for you in the article below.
Perhaps you have noticed that many people started wearing outfits a bit more formal: button down shirts, bow ties and glasses, and for good reason: nerdy details are incredibly fashionable and stylish. Let’s start from ordinary glasses: very few people try to hide the fact they need them, and what is more – they choose to wear big, bold frames which make them look like crazy scientists from the previous century. In addition, these details are unisex, which means that both girls and boys can rock ties and bowties and look great.
Girls have a bit more freedom because they can rock nerdy jewellery too, for example rings and earrings from their favourite TV shows or video games.
Graphic Tees and Formal Shirts
While it used to be unprofessional and immature to wear graphic T-shirts, these days the situation is different and graphic tees are welcome at gigs and in offices alike. The beauty of this trend is that girls can wear them too, and there is a great number of fitted tees for girls to choose from (no more baggy boyfriend tees for you, girls).
However, if you are not sure whether it’s okay for you to wear it to work, you can always make the look more formal by wearing a nice long sleeved custom shirt over it. By making sure your shirt is well fitting, you can wear it buttoned all the way up or even keep it ‘open’ so everyone can admire your tee.
Embrace the Nerdy Prints
Ladies and gentlemen, the revenge of the prints is here: you will regret ever neglecting them, because they are back in full swing! Stripes, polka dots, flower prints and gingham – they are everywhere! Shirts, skirts, ties, jackets, clutch bags and socks; eye-catching prints can be seen wherever you look. Same goes for bright colours: men can combine bright orange with military prints, and girls can rock yellow gingham shirts underneath bright green sweaters and pleated polka dot skirts with white flats.
Rock the Shoes
Did someone say Dr Martens shoes? It doesn’t get any quirkier than this: ankle socks and cute Dr Martens shoes paired up with a formal suit. If you are not feeling very open to t, this particular style, try colourful ones or the ones with crazy prints! The once-more-discovered love for these shoes brought innovations to the market and today you can choose from classic or modern pairs the ones you like best. Ladies, not only will you look incredibly stylish, but your feet will love the ‘time off’ from high heels.
Being a nerd means being unapologetically passionate about things you love, crazy details, pleated shirts and big glasses included. As long as you stay creative and innovative in your approach to styling your outfit, anything can be achieved. Follow trends, but don’t lose yourself along the way, experiment and be willing to improvise, but know what you love and what looks good on you – you will not make a mistake that way.
