How to pull off ‘geek chic’ the right way


In today’s day and age, fashions can change in the blink of an eye. Quite literally. One minute retro sneakers are considered big and burly, and the next minute some of the most stylish people in the world have them stuck to their feet. While it’s incredibly hard to know which items we should ditch and which items we should dig out from the back of our closets, there are certain trends that are a no-brainer. ‘Geek chic’ has been around for many years, but it’s come back in 2019 with a vengeance. This is how you can pull it off the right way, and you can thank us later…

Get your specs on

When you think of the traditional geek, you probably think of giant spectacles. So, why don’t you give them a go? Big glasses are the ultimate geek chic addition, and you’ll be happy to know that you don’t have to buy prescription glasses to rock this look. It’s easy to find fake frames in stores across the globe because they are now deemed as an accessory – rather than just a necessity for those who need the extra help to see. When it comes to these geek specs, size really does matter. The bigger, the better! Oversize frames are all the rage, from thin frames to thicker ones.

Get comfy in your slacks

When you think of slacks, there’s a high chance that you think of middle-aged men on their way to their 50-hour-a-week office job. Okay, so these men still wear these pants, but the classic tailoring in these pants can help you pull off the ‘geek chic’ look with ease. Slacks will show the world that you mean business, but the oversized look will also show the world that you know your fashion. Team your slacks up with smart shoes and an oversized sweater, and you’ll be ready to take your meeting by storm. The best part? These pants are incredibly loose-fitting, which means you can definitely fit in that extra donut.

Slide into chic with hair slides

There’s a high chance that you used to wear hair slides all the time when you were younger. Your mom may have slid them into your hair for your ballet lessons, and you probably chose the largest and most garish slides in the store to impress your friends at school. It was a way of life. Well, it’s now time to dig these back out, because hair slides are the perfect way to show off your ‘geek chic’ look. To make sure you’re perfecting this look, think of these hair slides as the statement pair of earrings. You don’t really want to use any more than two slides on each side of your head, and they perfectly team up with Hollywood waves.

Geeks around the world are now marveling in the fact that their style has now become one of the greatest fashion trends in the world. If you don’t class yourself as a geek, however, you can instead follow these rules to perfect the ultimate ‘geek chic’ look.
