Welcome back to another edition of Fav 4: four of our favorite geek fashion pieces that we’ve seen this month. Shocker: it’s Captain Marvel themed. Totally by accident though. Yeah, we can tell you that you totally believe us.
- In a blink-and-you-miss-them release, Adidas did a collaboration with Jen Bartel for a pair of fantastic Captain Marvel inspired sneakers. They are only available at Foot Locker and sold out almost instantly although we’ve heard talk of potential restock in the future.
- Kohl’s also released a whole slew of Captain Marvel inspired shirts for kids and adults alike. A standout is this t-shirt with the Hala star on it.
- You’ve probably seen Hero Within’s Carol Danvers Flight Jacket but we’re making sure you see it again because reasons.
- Carol wore a Nine Inch Nails t-shirt through much of the film and while you can get that shirt, why not go for the special collab one? (Seriously, who ever saw that coming?)
Every time I think I have a favorite Musterbrand piece, another new one enters my life. I will forever love my x-wing cape and shoes but this cardigan… this Kylo Ren inspired cardigan is where it’s at. It has thumb holes!!! (Someone please tell me I’m not allowed to buy it in red.)

What I love most about this cardigan is how it feels effortlessly stylish. I can toss it on with just about anything and feel good, comfortable and also warm. (Something that’s key in the office.) Also, it definitely flows behind me when I walk down the hallway which makes it almost as good as a cape. Part of what really makes this cardigan great though doesn’t show up in my pictures terribly well but it’s the variety of textures going on. It elevates what could have been a nice cut yet sorta boring piece to something far more special. This is one of those items of clothing that both nerds and non-nerds will appreciate. (Source: Lots of compliments from my assorted coworkers, including my boss, and more than a few compliments over the couple of hours I wore this to Awesome Con for one of my panels.) I’ve had this cardigan for a month now and I can honestly say it’s one of the pieces I reach for the most. If you’re even casually considering buying this piece… do it. Trust me. It’s great.
Disclaimer: Musterbrand provided the Kylo cardigan but only requested honest feedback and did not ask for a positive review in return.
They teased it a few weeks ago along side the Spider-Man active wear collection but Her Universe’s second Captain America inspired collection is now available. For the most part, I personally prefer the original collection from last year but they have an interesting variety of pieces this time. This may be the first bodysuit they’ve done. The long leggings are my personal pick for my favorite piece.
You can shop the collection in standard and plus sizes on Kohl’s website now.
Because sometimes you want to fly casual while also looking geeky fab.
Imperial Tunic: Kohl’s
Black Leggings: Forever 21
ESB Opening Crawl Bracelet: Love and Madness
Sneaky sneaky! It looks like Her Universe has delved back into the realm of Marvel with a Spider-man inspired active wear line! It’s fairly similar to the lines we’ve previously seen just with a Spidey spin. (Spin! Did you see what I… never mind.) The active wear cardigan is something new and I’d certainly be interested to see how the sports bra is.
