Be a nerd, and look good while doing it
You're a nerd. You know it. I know it. Your friends are probably starting to suspect something's up, too. But why should you care? Because now is the perfect time to embrace your inner nerd and look good while doing it! You don't have to hide your head in a book or in a community chat anymore; instead, celebrate your passions and who you are with a brand brand that respects you as much as you respect the canon.
Geek chic is the new trend.
If you've ever been called a nerd, or just wondered what it means to be one, then this is the article for you.
The term "nerd" has been around since the 1950s—and it's often used as an insult. But now, nerd culture is all the rage! I like to call it Nerdcore (not hardcore), and now it's cool to wear your love of science fiction and fantasy on your sleeve (literally). Go ahead and wear shirts and hoodies emblazoned with characters from your favorite TV show, game or comic book. Geek chic is all about letting people know that it's cool to express your passion for the creative because nerds are actually pretty awesome. They're creative thinkers who have passion for their interests—whether they're learning about space travel or penning epic novels—and are proud of who they are.
Embrace your inner nerd.
Nerd culture is all about being a part of a community, and the best way to do that is by embracing your inner nerd. Nerds have gotten a bad rap. They're often portrayed wearing mismatched clothes, speaking in incoherent jargon, and being a nuisance. But that's not what being a nerd is actually about. Anyone who identifies as a "nerd" is simply marking themselves as passionate, loyal, and connected to something bigger than themselves.
Nerds are creative and smart, passionate about what they enjoy, funny and quirky. They aren't afraid to be different from the norm. If you could use some inspiration on how to become a real life nerd here's how:
Apparel and gear that speaks to a community.
If you're a nerd, or are at least in the process of becoming one, then you're probably familiar with the rise of Nerdcore culture. And if you aren't? Well, let us just say that nerds are no longer a marginalized group whose interests are seen as silly or juvenile by the rest of society. No—these days, they're all up in your face (and we mean that in the best possible way).
The reason for this shift is simple: nerds are now cool. The community has grown into something much larger than its original core base. It's become an umbrella term for people who share an interest in a particular subject (or many subjects) and want to talk about it with other like-minded individuals online, at conventions and events like ComicCon and PAX (which have been around since 2004), or even just among friends at work or school—because when else do most people get to chat about their favorite Netflix series, Anime or comic books?
Brands that represent and embrace the community.
It’s not just about the clothes. Its about wearable art that reflects your lifestyle and highlights your story.
Nerdy brands also sell fun accessories, like toys and art. They are more than just a logo; they represent who you are as a person. If you see a shirt with a python on it, but it doesn't have any other meaning to you or your interests (for example), then it's probably not for you—even if the design is cool!
It is cool to be a nerd.
Being a nerd is cool now. It really is. You may have seen the rise of nerds in the mainstream media, but it's time to shift your perception of what it means to be a nerd and start incorporating some of these ideas into your daily life. This can be as easy as adding an extra layer of detail to an outfit or getting more comfortable with expressing yourself through fashion and style.
If you're still not convinced that being a nerd is cool, here are a few more reasons why:
The nerd community is growing rapidly—especially on social media and at conventions like Comic-Con! There are lots of different types within this community: cosplayers who dress up like their favorite characters; geeks who love science fiction, fantasy and video games; tech enthusiasts who write about technology for various sites; gaming enthusiasts who play tabletop board games like Dungeons & Dragons or collectible card games like Magic: The Gathering; bookworms who read all kinds of genres from romance novels to murder mysteries; anime fans who follow Japanese cartoons (manga) or watch Japanese live action films (anime); comic book artists/writers/publishers/readers...the list goes on! You don't have to fit into one category or even choose just one category because there's so much overlap between them!
So, there you have it. Being a nerd doesn't mean you have to look like the stereotype. It just means that you can live your passions and interests in real time. And, you can wear them on the regular. its important that we have something that reflects who we are. For too long "nerd culture" has been a joke, STELEKON have fixed that.
