There was a time when geek girls were mocked for their independent style. But the popularity of new technology and films like "Lord of the Rings," have opened up the geek culture to self-proclaimed non-geeks. Here is how to dress like a geek girl.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Thick-rimmed glasses
- Brightly colored clothes
- Large shoulder bag
- Creative accessories
Buy a pair of glasses, whether you need them or not. Both regular geek and geek chic styles utilize the dark, thick-rimmed glasses. Horn-rimmed glasses are stylish and scream geek, even when you have to dress professionally.
Keep your hairstyle simple and clean. Many geek girls wear their hair out of their face in a ponytail or bun, but geek chic style allows for simple, wavy or straight styles that don't require a lot of work or hair products. Blunt cut bangs are a good geek girl style, too.
Wear shirts and dresses in bright colors that don't match. For a professional geek girl look, wear a neutral blazer with a brightly colored shirt and a pleated skirt.
Pick shirts that symbolize popular geek girl video games, computer technology, comics and inside jokes that only other geeks understand. Pair these with colorful shoes or boots.
Accessorise your wardrobe with a big bag that you sling over your shoulder. The bag must have plenty of pockets to hold all your technological devices, such as a mobile phone, camera and laptop.
Impress your geek boyfriend by getting some geek girl panties. Speciality shops sell panties with computer and video game graphics or sayings on them.
Make your own accessories by using things that define you as a geek. If you're into video games, make a video game controller belt. If computers are more your thing, create bracelets or necklaces from old computer power cords.
