Styling Between the Stacks: Librarian Wardrobe

Librarians aren't exactly known for being fashion forward people. Cardigans, eyeglasses, and sensible shoes are commonly perceived as integral parts of their daily wardrobe. So it's refreshing to come across a Tumblr spotlighting librarians who are styling between the stacks.

Librarian Wardrobe is a Tumblr that showcases the sharp fashion sense of librarians from across the country and around the world. Looking at photo after photo, it becomes evident that the desk set indeed dresses with finesse. Although some are happily attired in the classic cardigan-and-eyeglasses combo, others have added a clever twist to this traditional librarian attire. Many have completely shattered the stereotype altogether, in their velvet Dr. Martens boots, leopard-print pants, tattoo sleeves, and much more. These librarians are truly a smart set!
