Yeah, But a Dude is Wearing That Jacket…

Share This Post

If you follow the world of nerdy fashions, you saw/heard about the “controversy” about Hero Within’s Wonder Woman Denim Jacket.  A little full-disclosure and background, I’m the Operations Manager for Hero Within.  Hero Within is a nerdy menswear company, so when we released the Wonder Woman jacket, we had our amazing model, Louis, model it.  Well, the internet had a collective cow.  I guess they forgot that we are a menswear company, and men love Wonder Woman too.

Now, I have gotten a ton of questions and requests about how to style our menswear.  So, I took some of our summer collection pieces and styled them all girly-like for you.

First up is our Wonder Woman jacket.

Owning a jean jacket is a good investment.  It is a classic piece that never goes out of style.  I paired the jacket with a simple pull over cotton dress and combat boots.  The red combat boots are a very old purchase from Target, and even though they are starting to fall apart, I love them.  The dress is also from Target.

When you are styling menswear, just remember to balance your pieces.  Balance them the same as when you put together any other outfit.  Volume on top, means fitted on the bottom, etc.  Also balance the menswear piece with something more girly.  I also added a yellow scarf to the mix for a pop of color and add a nice feminine touch.  I am wearing a 2XL in the Wonder Woman jacket.  The scarf is from a fabric store.  I just bought a square of fabric in the color I desired.


Next up is one of our summer collection button down shirts.  For this look, I went rockabilly with our Justice League shirt.


I tied the shirt at the waist and paired it with some jeans from Torrid and Chuck Taylors.  I also added a scarf as well.  I’m wearing a 3XL in the Justice League shirt.

The last look is with our Batman Blazer.

Again, with balance, I paired a fitted pair of leggings with the boxy men’s blazer.  Also, the leggings are a staple in every nerd girls’ wardrobe.  The leggings are from Amazon.  I’m wearing a 3XL in the blazer.

If you have some ideas about how you like to style these menswear pieces, or any other menswear pieces, please send us some pictures.  We love hearing from you!

Until next time…

Love, Kim and Scout
