Dickies Are The Nerdy Fashion Trend That's Coming Back

Just hear us out.

Dickies could be the answer to all your winter woes. For those of you unfamiliar with the dickie (also spelt dickey or dicky), it's a type of false shirt-front that was originally intended to be worn with a tuxedo. Since its inception it has transformed, and today many wear it underneath shirts, giving the appearance that you're layering a shirt overtop of a turtleneck.  

Not only will this trend keep your neck cozy during the cool months, but it will add extra warmth without creating extra bulk -- you won't get exceedingly hot because you won't have to wear tons of layers to get the layering effect. Some of our favorite designers and stores have started carrying them, and we have a feeling that it's only a matter of time before they become a closet staple. 

Howard Wolowitz from "The Big Bang Theory" might be on to something.
