ALL IN THE DETAILS: American Nerd Meets Urban Jungle

Whoever said glasses weren’t cool were clearly mistaken….

Well my fashion friends, it’s that time of the year again, where the semester is coming to a close, school papers are piling up (sadly), all-nighters are becoming the new normal (omg) and finals are in full swing. Ugh! But have no fear, just because it’s finals season does not mean your outfit has to suffer (even though your GPA might be). In fact, I find that putting on a fun flirty outfit helps to motivate me to not only study a little longer, but also feel confident while doing it! My mom always said to dress for success and let’s be real… if you look good, you feel good and if you feel good…. well, it’s just natural to perform better, but enough of the motivational advice, let’s get down to fashion.

This Fashionisto’s look is all about the accessories. Our Fashionisto embodies what I like to call the “American Nerd” look pairing a great fitting pair of dark wash jeans with a brown distressed bomber jacket, lace up boots and topping the look off with his main accessory, with what he likes to call his Harry Potter glasses. Not only is this look urban and effortless, but this Fashionisto is definitely on trend as well. Leather bomber jackets are one of the trendiest outwear choices of the season giving off the cool moto boy vibe. What I love about this look is the different styles that are combined in just one look, which shows us that this Fashionisto is not afraid to play with patterns and trends while keeping it effortless and cool.

Accessories are a great way to take an outfit from drab to fab, whether it’s a fun pair of shoes, an amazing statement necklace or a printed scarf. Eye-catching accessories are a staple that every Fashionista/o should have in their closet. Not sure what accessory to pair with your outfit? Try basing your accessory choice off the weather, beanies and scarves are not only functional but also fashionable my friends.

How To: Not sure how to pull off the American nerd look? Prep up your look with a fun pair of geeky glasses. Wondering when to wear them? Try throwing on a pair of chic specs on a lazy day to test out the waters that way you can still look fashionable even though you weren’t even trying.
