Attack of the Geeks: Why the Fashion on “Big Bang Theory” Works

0

Fashion on TV shows namely Big Bang Theory

We know they’re everywhere. We even see these people on T.V., providing all the laughs, information, and sometimes, useless trivia for our entertainment. We’re talking about the “Geeks.” Never underestimate a geek. It’s not that hard to imagine that someday, we’ll have a geek for a boss. Perhaps one of the most famous geeks of all time is the great Sheldon Cooper.

Hailing from the hit sitcom “Big Bang Theory,” it’s a fact that most of us know he’s super smart and super annoying. What draws us more to him is the way he moves, his style, and most importantly, the way he dresses. Although a lot of us fail to notice and directly label Sheldon Cooper and the entire cast as “Geeks,” he has a lot of fashion sense to their name. Let’s take a look.

Growing up with Graphic Tees

Although wearing graphic t-shirts might seem childish for some, Sheldon Cooper and the legion of nerds and geeks who follow him somehow make it appear to work. However, the one common theme that Sheldon has on his shirt is how minimalistic it looks. Only on rare times does Sheldon deviate from this look.

When Sheldon does try to stray away from the minimalist t-shirt look, he often wears shirts which have superheroes on them such as The Flash, Batman, and Superman. Since we’re in a time that people are always bringing back past trends, it’s no wonder why a lot of geeks and nerds make this whole get-up work.

The Whole Cast is an Expert at Layering too

Sheldon has two signature looks. One is layering a long sleeve shirt under his green, Green Lantern shirt. The other is his love for anything plaid. Sheldon also likes pairing up his favorite graphic tees with striped cardigans. Pattern mixing is making a comeback nowadays, that’s why it’s no wonder that a lot of people love this geeky way of fashion.

Women in the show aren’t Pushovers when it comes to Fashion

The show’s cast isn’t just made up entirely of Sheldon. The show also features three beautiful women in Dr. Bernadette Rostenkowski, Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler, and the very sexy Penny. Although all of these women are highly fashionable, the two that stick out the most are Amy’s and Penny’s.

Amy Fowler is a neurobiologist and has an impressive style, to say the least. She is fond of stripes, pattern mixing, and layering. One of her most fashionable get-ups is pairing a striped blazer, a collared blouse, and a denim skirt. She finishes off the look with black high socks and loafers. Although not a big fashion statement, the confidence in the way she handles her outfit is what draws out a “real” look for a lot of people.

Penny is your typical sexy, girl-next-door, beach head. Apart from the obliviousness she often shows when the guys on the show ridicule her for not being a part of their clique, Penny’s fashion sense is more than enough to drop jaws in the series. With a lot of people browsing through sites like Seed Heritage, it’s not that difficult to get ideas from Penny’s outfit.

Penny’s get-up consists of a lot of casual denim and bright florals. Depending on the scene, her outfit changes from time to time. During the day, Penny likes wearing a collared blouse with a soft cardigan and jeans. During a night out with the other women in the show, Penny sticks out more as she loves wearing boot cut jeans, wedges, and sexy tops that flaunt her sexy figure and assets.

Takeaway

Many individuals in the past labeled geeks and nerds as people who had weird faces, hobbies, and behaviors. A sitcom that shows just how these geeks live their lives and demonstrate that they are people with extraordinary intelligence and a sleek fashion sense.

Big Bang Theory shows viewers that “Geek Fashion and Culture” is pretty much alive. With Dr. Sheldon Cooper leading the way, graphic tees and other once childish fashion pieces are making a comeback in a rather big and explosive way.
