Don’t be afraid to wear cardigans. A lot of guys shy away from cardigans because they feel they’re reserved for the elderly and geeks. But the truth is, we love a man in a sexy cardigan. A well-fitted, stylish cardigan can make any outfit look chic. You can use a cardigan to layer up in the winter or with jeans to pull your outfit together for a casual outing.
Do NOT have unkempt hair. We know that geeks are always super busy playing video games, researching or studying, so they don’t have a lot of time to pay attention to their hair. We forgive them for having long, messy locks. But if you want to make an effort to look geek chic, have a neat, sexy hairstyle. A crew up hairstyle with a little volume on the top looks best paired with geeky attire.
Do NOT wear suspenders. Unless done absolutely right by the perfect guy, suspenders just look dorky (in a bad way). So we advise you to stay away from them altogether unless you want to look like Steve Urkel!
Never wear fanny packs! We cannot stress this enough! Unless you want to be labeled as a geek for the rest of your life and live in social exile, stay as far away from fanny packs as possible. They might be pretty convenient at times, but they are a symbol geeks use to spot each other—not for somebody who’s looking to look geek chic.
