Who knew superheroes can be so trendy? As of late, the craze over Marvel-ous crusaders, from the Avengers crew to the Dark (and handsome) Knight, we can't help but swoon and also take some serious style cues. The influx of prints, comic strip graphics, and colors that go POW! would definitely make Roy Lichtenstein proud. Runway looks from 3.1 Phillip Lim's Pre-Fall collection have sparked some all-American geek-chic looks, and inspired us to put together some kick-ass outfits.
Marcus Lupfer provides knitted pullovers splattered with comic text, to be paired with some skinny leather pants or bright red denim. For a hero-off-duty ensemble, a bangin' t-shirt from Elzabeth & James will look uber cool with the ubiquitous wedge sneaker in cobalt blue from ASH. With a swipe of bright red lipstick and freshly-painted glittery nails, you'll be ready to take on the world (or at least look like it).
Only one word of caution - leave out the unitard over tights.

Star-spangled prints, a swipe of true red lipstick, and incognito sunglasses are key pieces to complete the look.
