Who knew that one day being geeky would become smolderingly hot? But in the information age, geeks have become trend setters whose unique fashion sense has inspired the way some of the world’s most fashionable people dress. Suddenly geek chic is all the rage and everyone wants to jump on the geek bandwagon. If you want to achieve that intriguing geek chic look, think funny t-shirts ; a geek wardrobe essential.
In the geek sub-culture, the T-shirt is a form of communication, a kind of personal billboard. It signals to others in the community that you are a member. As for the message, mathematical equations, obscure scientific references and geeky in-jokes are popular choices. In fact the rarer and more obscure the message the better. Wearing a T-shirt with a message that only another geek can understand is a kind of status symbol. You could try “There are 10 kinds of people: Those who understand binary and those who don’t.” Non-geeks and posers will only be puzzled by this apparently nonsensical statement.
Geeks are stereotypically socially awkward; lacking an understanding of social conventions and norms and are passionate about things that other people care little about. The true geek is often obsessed with science fiction, comic books, Star Wars or video games while they are blessed with prodigious intellects and extraordinary technical skills. Geek T-shirts often reflect the idiosyncrasies of the geek culture. Some popular T-shirt slogans include: “You read my T-shirt. That’s enough social interaction for one day.”; “I see dumb people.”; “Life would be easier if I had the source code.”; and “C:\DOS C:\DOS\RUN RUN\DOS\RUN”..
Once you’ve got the T-shirts, you can round out your geek chic look with a few accessories. Add eyeglasses with heavy black frames for that intellectual look. If you have 20/20 vision, that’s not a problem. You can get them with plain glass lenses. Other must have fashion accessories include, suspenders, pocket protectors, and the geek footwear of choice, the high-top Converse. A retro-style laptop bag, emblazoned with images of superheroes, Darth Vader or Einstein’s Theory of Relativity completes the look.
With so many celebrities like Johnny Depp, Aston Kutcher, Adam Brody, Kelly Osbourne, Jack Black and David Beckham sporting geek chic fashion, what was once uncool has become the epitome of cool. If you are ready to embrace your inner geek, adding a little geek fashion to your wardrobe is an easy thing to do.
