A lot of you may not think geek is exactly chic, but the truth is that high fashion magazines and runways are covered with styles inspired by nerds and geeks. To look your best in your geek attire, check out our four ways to look geek chic and four geek styles you should keep locked away in the closet.
Do wear corduroy pants. Corduroy pants have been a signature look for nerds for decades. They are low maintenance, easy to wash, and you don’t have to iron them. Try wearing a pair of corduroy pants that are slim fitting and long-never wear pants that end at your ankles! Look for browns, beiges, blacks and other dark colors to pair with slim leather belts.
Wear horn rimmed glasses. It doesn’t matter if you need glasses or not; to look geek chic, you must have dark horn rimmed glasses. The bigger they are, the better. Some could even say the original Buddy Holly glasses inspired a generation of geeks to take over the fashion scene.
Wear geeky t-shirts. Instead of flannel or the usual checkered shirts we see geeks wearing, wear funny, ironic nerdy t-shirts. Look for shirts with some sort of science on them or an ironic joke. You can even wear t-shirts with your favorite comic book or movie characters on them. Just make sure the shirt fits you right, and it’ll look great!
