Nerd Game Strong Feat.STRAWLOUS

       So a lot of you asked me do a post on something super casual yet interesting, something you guys could wear to college and from there, on a date. And turns out I got just what you guys have been asking for. When you ask for casual and still interesting, there’s only one name that came to my mind, Strawlous! I have showcased some of their shirts in my earlier posts like ‘Chill Scenes’ and ‘Talk Shirty To Me!’. Turns out I can’t help but obsesses about their shirts! I mean they have got some really rad stuff. And it’s like they don’t just make you look good, they make sure that you stand out! In a good way!

      Alright, so I gotta be a lil honest out here. The way I usually tend to give like a lil background on the trend that I showcase, like some history of it or something, but I couldn’t manage to get any legit information about this trend though. Having said that, I’d just say, it’s more like a quirky back to school look, that’s been trending since a while. This can dual as your go to trend while attending your classes. And honestly it’s something you should totally go for when you’re planning to dress up for a date. This trend is something you could adapt to in your own personal ways by taking pieces that suit you the best.

      You could go for something as simple as a check shirt with a solid colored chinos, or a solid color button down shirt with a pair of check trousers. That’s keeping it super simple. But we don’t do that. We take things up a notch and make sure we look better than the rest. So layer up. Go for a V neck or round neck sweaters, V neck sleeveless sweaters, cardigans, sport coats. To add that authentic geeky element, accessorize using suspenders, bold colored or printed bow ties, quirky neckties, knit neckties. And not to forget the quintessential nerdy/hipster glasses. Now you’ll have a lotta options in the kinda glasses you pick. I’d suggest a round or a rectangular one in a solid color.

      Now what I’ve done is, I took one particular shirt from Strawlous, and styled in two ways. It’s this really cool red and green checked slim fit casual shirt. What I loved the most about this shirt is the button down collar and especially the contrasting cuffs and pocket that helps you up your style quotient. You guys must check out the Strawlous pages for more of shirts that are casual but would still stand out. So the two looks I have put together, are quite similar as I have marinated most of the elements in way that helps you transition from class to date. Now let’s take you through the two outfits that I have put together.

      The first look is what you could wear to college on a regular basis if you put together similar such looks. I styled the Strawlous shirt by layering it over a basic white crew neck tshirt with a pair of medium washed denims and a pair of classic black converse. Round black framed hipster glasses, green beaded bracelets, an interesting red fabric strap wrist watch to add a pop of color. And to finish it off, a tan backpack! Simple, classic and comfortable but still stylish because of the kind of elements that have gone into the outfit.

       The second look is a little dressy option that could wear on that date of yours. By adding just the right layer to the outfit, the entire look of it can be effortlessly transformed. So what I did was I maintained the entire outfit as it is, minus the crew neck tshirt and instead layered the shirt with a brown cardigan. I chose to go for a brown one because the colors on the shirt were bright and really fresh so I need a deep hue to compliment both red and the green as well as to blend in with the outfit. Now you can either wear the cardigan or even carry it for that slightly geeky but still sorta vintage vibe.And even though it’s a date look, I still didn’t really wanna pin roll the cuff of the denims even thought that would’ve looked much neater just to maintain that clumsy geeky vibe. Also like I mentioned earlier you could go for different layers depending on what final effect you want to go for.
