To dress like a nerd, wear tight pants, choose a nerdy shirt, select argyle socks, wear awkward shoes and style your hair. Accessorize with eyeglasses, a bow tie and a watch.
- Wear tight pants
Purchase tight, high-water pants. These pants are restrictive, and help you to look and walk like a nerd. Accessorize your pants with clip-on suspenders or a long belt.
- Choose a nerdy shirt
Choose a tight t-shirt with either a Star Trek or Star Wars logo on the front. Short-sleeved Oxford shirts complete with pocket protectors are also typical nerd shirts.
- Select argyle socks
Choose long, white argyle socks to complement the high-water pants. These socks also work great with Bermuda shorts. Mismatched argyle socks also complement the geek costume.
- Wear awkward shoes
Wear black sneakers, ill-fitting saddle shoes or bowling shoes to complete the nerd ensemble.
- Style your hair
The typical male nerd hair style is slicked-back hair. Be sure to use a lot of gel. Tuck a pencil or pen behind your ear to enhance the look.
- Accessorize your outfit
Big, black-rimmed eyeglasses are the perfect accessory to complete your outfit. Consider adding tape to the edge or middle of the frame. Wear a large, outdated digital watch, preferably one with a calculator. Include a bow tie in a bright color or strange pattern and a backpack to tie the nerd look together.
