Just because you love to embrace your inner nerd does not mean that you have to dress like an outcast. Nerdy doesn’t equate to anything more than who you are and that should be celebrated. There are no outcasts in the world of fashion, and here is how to dress this summer so that you look chic and you show the world that you love being who you are.
Glasses have become synonymous with geekdom. It’s as if glasses are meant to make you look ugly, so they have been placed on the face of the less fortunate in the looks department. How dare they? Glasses can turn any face into a model face if you get the right pair. Getting dark rimmed glasses really brings out any eye color and can frame the face to make it look more appealing.
Whoever said looking smart was unattractive was wrong, because when you walk into a room wearing a pair of Ray-Bans, everyone will want to know what’s going on inside your head.
The ultimate nerd calling card is the graphic tee. Whether it’s characters from Roblox, Minecraft, Nintendo, or your favorite superhero, the graphic tee will tell the world there’s more to you than just your style. Let’s face it, every superhero is some kind of nerd who has used their smarts to not only achieve their superpowers, but to save the world at the same time.
The football jock didn’t magically become Spider-Man and save the day. Spider-Man needed to be a nerdy teenager who had a hard time talking to girls. Throw on that superhero tee and look stylish and give a huge nod to super nerds everywhere.
You may not feel comfortable wearing the latest designer sneakers. You may be more of a Staud kind of person who likes to rock an awesome pair of Birkenstocks. Birkenstocks have come a long way from the 1960’s hippy movement. These sandals now come in a variety of styles that everyone thinks are cool.
Wear them with your graphic tee and your tortoise shell glasses, and you will be stating a style that very few people can pull off.
If you’re too cool for school, chances are that you are never carrying your books around with you. Book bags are for nerds. That’s a good thing because the messenger bag is a fashion staple. If someone stops you on the street to compliment you on a leather messenger bag that is perfect for carrying your laptop, notebooks, and essentials, let them know that “yes indeed” you are carrying your books around to do your homework.
There are plenty of ways to bring your personal style to the world. If something speaks to you, rock it, and don’t let anyone make you feel as if you are not in fashion because you know who you are. Standing out is a good thing, it shows that you have more confidence than the average person.
