Nerd, dork, geeky and so drop dead chic! In the days ruled by chalkboards and textbooks most ladies do not want to be known as quintessential “nerd.” However, geek chic style can still be fun, sophisticated and dare we say cool?
There are plenty of ways to allow your inner fashion nerd to escape and be free. Try incorporating a pair of stylish suspenders with a pleated skirt and button down shirt. Or, if you are a shoe fanatic ( it’s okay the first step is admittance LOL) pair your heels with socks and get to strutting your stuff. Moreover, you could also support your favorite comic character by rocking a tee with their image plastered all over it. Extra points if you plan on wearing top related to the Avengers or Wonder Woman. Nevertheless, there is one major accessory that most fashionista’s keep in their back pocket when they are ready be the chic geek.
To pull off this trendy look all a girl really needs is a fashionable pair of glasses. Take being called four eyes as a compliment, because girl you look great! Don’t worry about getting a pair with a prescription unless you need a little help in the eyesight department. A regular pair of bifocals will also not break the bank or set your wallet on fire making it a cheaper trend to indulge in freely.
Celebrities wear the geek chic trend more often than you think and not just to star-studded galas either! We have spotted nerd couture being worn by some of our favorite celebrity gals. Here are just a few:
See, whether you are going for a sophisticated and conservative or relaxed and edgy, a little nerdy flair can help to complete your look. Notice though for the most part the makeup on all the ladies was kept rather simple. With the exception of a pop of color via a red lip, a neutral makeup look will allow the focus to remain on the accessory (glasses). Moreover, let’s face it the glasses may hide all of your hard eye makeup work so if you want to add some beauty boldness it is best to pump up your lips instead.
