Being a nerd was always something looked at as uncool. If you were a nerd, ie love to read books, did well in school, or enjoyed anything remotely intellectual it was automatically deemed that you had no style. Nerds could not in any way be fashionable. Prime example: Steve Urkel. Even though Jaleel White was a good looking guy, those tight pants and suspenders were a no no. When he transformed into Stefan Urkelle, many swooned. He was cool. It was like if you were cool you couldn't be smart, and if you are smart you couldn't be cool. Why?
I always loved clothes. So can a nerd love clothes? Being an intellectual absolves you from caring about fashion and style, but I loved it so. It was over time that I realized that people are not one dimensional. We have layers, and in turn makes you unique. So yes, I did get an A in advanced calculus and I read InStyle to catch up on the latest trends. You can be a Fly Nerd, and the shirt reflects such.
While at Curlfest I came across the brand Fly Nerd. I went with the Fly Nerd Tank, and it's the best. Everyone that saw this definitely said that it fit me to a tee (pun intended). I am wearing a XL, and it has room. The brand goes up to a 2XL, which I feel can accommodate someone that is 22-24. The women that were assisting me were my size or bigger and they wore the 2X without a problem. If you don't want to rock a tank, it also comes in a tee.
I paired the tee with this fun printed skirt from Eloquii. I love a good flare skirt and the bold print really spoke to me. I also love the fact that it is shorter. Don't get me wrong, I love a good Eloquii midi, but it's cool to have something on the shorter side. Show off the gams from time to time. I finished off the look with my Gemily mules from Nine West. So lovers, did this Fly Nerd pull it off? Sound off in the comments.
