Rise of the Geek.

"Geek" T Topshop // disco pants Glamorous // hat River Island // glasses Urban Outfitters // trainers Kurt Geiger

There was a time in fashion when so called "geeks" and "nerds" were the most frowned upon crowd when it came to dressing themselves but look at how the tables have turned over the recent years! With bands like Weezer and Hot Chip sporting thick rimmed glasses and buttoned up polo T's, TV shows such as The Big Bang Theory (with the lovable Mega Geek Sheldon) and actresses such as Zooey Deschanel embracing the nerdy side, more and more shops are providing us with the necessary fashion items to imitate our favourite characters.
This Topshop "Geek" T has become the cult item this autumn with girls and boys (also available at Topman) from all over the world were seen sporting it in street style snaps. I had to jump on the trend wagon because I love T-shirts and it's rare I come across one which I actually like. For me, this is the perfect casual outfit because it's so comfy and trendy. I jazz this T up with charcoal disco pants and my glitzy Kurt Geiger Trainers and I feel it can take me from day to night and I'll feel good about what I'm wearing.
You don't have to go all out geek like I did in this outfit post, more glamorous and subtle elements of the trend are thick rimmed glasses, bobble hats and scarves and button up shirts - all of which you can mix in with your everyday style.

What do you think of the GEEK trend? Will you be trying it?



  1. Not really a fan of these t shirts to be honest, I think it's just because I see them everywhere though haha! I love the whole geeky look though, I don't know what I'd do without button up shirts!

  2. I posted an outfit yday with a geek tee :) I love them!!! I also mentioned the fake that in school I was embarrassed about being a geek and now I am loving being one haha!!!!!! X

  3. As a self confessed geek, I am DESPERATE for one of these Ts, or atleast the 'dweeb' one!

  4. I love the Big bang theory and all these geek chic inspired clothes :)
    The tee looks great with your disco pants
