We adore our friends at Lucky for great shopping tips and cute style, which is why we're thrilled to present this fab story from the Lucky blog!
Admittedly, I’m a huge nerd. I’m freakishly good at video games. There’s not a history exam that I won’t ace (partially because I have a photographic memory, but I am really into world history), and I’m often drawn to the nerdiest of sartorial trends.

So, scroll through to see my chic revenge.
“Hadley Sweater,” $98, Jcrew.com

Plaid trousers, $140, Brooksbrothers.com

Stacked heel loafer, $390, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Saks.com
If you’re not wearing a heeled loafer, are you really living? Here’s a really pretty pair that won’t cost you a month’s rent. Also, I give Marc by Marc props for perpetuating this trend season after season. (Nonrelated sidenote: Will Marc go to Dior?? Cray Cray!)
