The Rise of the Nerd: 4 Styles for the Intellectually Inclined

It’s time to face the truth: smart girls have more fun. What’s beauty without brains, anyway? However, nerdiness is no excuse to live life like Tess of the D'urbervilles. It’s time to tap into your inner Daisy Buchanan. Here are a few styles to get you started:

Professor Chic
Evolved from the Norfolk hunting jacket of the 1860’s, the sport coat worked its way into a more professional setting (for more on the history of sport coats, check out this source). Though traditionally worn by males, it’s now considered to be a staple in any wardrobe, regardless of sex or gender.
If your style is more feminine, look for a fitted cut and pair it with a sleek blouse. Opt for a coat featuring leather elbow patches, throw on a pair of skinny jeans or trousers and you’re ready to hit the books!

Pop Culture
Have a more relaxed style? Fearlessly show off your nerdy greatness with a graphic tee. First produced sometime during the 1950’s, the graphic tee has since become a casual wear phenomena. Whether you’re into chemistry puns or literary allusions, the graphic tee has got you covered. It’s likely the most versatile piece of nerd gear and a handy wardrobe default.

High and Waisted
For a smart femme look, high-waisted skirts are essential. No matter the length, you can’t go wrong with a black a-line. Match with thigh-high socks and a good pair of penny loafers for that coffee shop look. Skirts not your thing? Black high-waisted shorts are a comfortable substitute, and are frequently sported by Taylor Swift. Pair them with black tights for an edgy vibe.

Beauty Isn’t Always Blind
What’s the use of looking good if you can’t see? Harry Potter rocked his frames and so can you. They come in all shapes and sizes, so regardless if you’re a chic, relaxed, or the queen of nerdom, you’ll be able to find a pair that suits your individual flair from Marvel Optics and similar retailers. I recommend the classic 1960’s ‘cat eye’ shape for all those nerdy divas out there. You don’t even need poor vision to take part in the glasses trend!

In conclusion, never compromise your brains for your beauty; rather, let your outer beauty reflect what’s going on in that beautiful mind of yours. Whether you’re a Hermione Granger, Marie Curie, or Hedy Lamarr, always remember to let that inner nerd shine on.
