I'm actually very proud of myself. Instead of doing my picture postings in PowerPoint- or posting each picture individually- I upgraded to learning Microsft Paint. I feel I just tossed out my crayons and construction paper for some sketch paper and color pencils! hahaha.
I was sick of the juvenile pic postings I was given yall!!!... See I love my readers! You guys deserve nothing but the best.
Next self tutorial- Illustrator!... YIKES!!! That's when I will be POPPIN!!!!
Newho.... today I was exploring the wonderful world of Geek Chic. This is a movement that we’ve seen come alive across both genders. We've seen it a lot express by Hollywood Actors, but thanks to Pharell, Andre 3Stacks and Kanye- the hip hoppers and R&B cats are rocking it too.
Last week I was browsing the blogs and seen Bobby V was catching some slack on his Geek Chic style- I actually LOVED how he looked. I dont think he was trying too hard to get the look, it actually looks very balanced and natural.
He opted for a sweater vest- verses the cardy and substituted a regular tie for a bow tie. I like the mix pattern of the button up and plaid tie. This balanced his look. I like the choice of a solid vest. It calmed his mix match patterns.
Well done Bobby! :)
You can substitute your cardy for a vest. It's equally cute. Finding a cute print Vest will add personality to your geek chic Style. I love the "Life Guard" vest from Ralph Laruen. A Button vest is a great choice as well. It gives your look a laid back feel.
I do not see too many people rocking the suspenders to execute their geek chic look. Maybe you guys should try it. Andre 3000 is a suspender rocker and he kills it every time- use Andre 3stacks for inspiration.
Of course the Collegiate look Cardy is the right move. Rugby is a great source to get your collegiate style cardigan. I went to Rugby and customized this great navy blue cardigan with my BF's initials. How cute is that???.... You do not necessarily have to pair your cardy with a button up, you can layer it with a v-neck tee or crew neck tee.
The Bow-Tie is very tricky- not everyone can pull this off. But I love pattern ties. The skull heads on the RL bow tie is the cutest. Try to find fun stripes, eye popping colors or cool polka dots. When executing the bow-tie try not to take yourself too seriously. Last week I was meeting a good friend of mine (His name is Jason- Dope Boys check is Blog out) and he paired his Bow Tie with a mix match pattern button up and a worn/washed Aerocrombie pull over hoodie. VERY DOPE!
Last but not least, that Urkel Glasses. My fav are the Cazals. I have a pair and I LOVE THEM!!! As of right now, the dark lens are in, but as it gets cold I always change the lens back to clear. I love the oversize, but you do not have to choose the oversize to get the look, a great small frame can definitely take you there as well.
Fellas are you into the Geek Chic movement?
I always say try something once, you do not have to adopt that into your everyday style- but switching it up is always cool!
