OOTD: Talk Nerdy to Me

Most of you won’t remember the days when Buddy Holly ruled the charts, but you might recall his trademark thick framed nerdy glasses. When I think of the “nerdy look”, Buddy Holly, or Steve Urkel fit the bill perfectly. I’ve always thought That’ll Be The Day when those glasses make a come back, however Hollywood thought differently …  I know the suspenders are “in”, just phhleeezzz don’t bring back the “flood” pants. I can almost hear Steve Urkel nasally asking “Did I do that?”


Here is Hollywood, paying homage to the “nerdy look”:

This look can easily be achieved with common things in your closet. For the most part, you do need the nerdy glasses, but the frame doesn’t have to be black. Also, no pocket protectors necessary, you will easily find a t-shirt with a witty slogan on it. Jeans, mary janes, high heels or tennis shoes with knee high socks are ideal.  Anything preppy, like button down shirts, printed cardigans, or vests are perfectly acceptable. For a more “bookish” look, you might want to  sport a pencil over your ear, or have the pencil become a part of your hairstyle.

Being that this look is trending, my girls and I decided to dress up, in outfits from our closets, and show you our “chic geek” version of how cool nerds, like us, dress today. As they say, if you can’t beat them, join them!
