The back to school craze is not limited to just teenagers and young would be college coeds; the Back to School time of year is a time of seasonal transition which heralds a feeling of change, renewal or metamorphosis.
These feelings of change can awaken the need to reinvent ourselves, our images, our perspective, our outlook, our goals.
What better way to embrace the spirit of change than to mix up your fashion?
Forever 21’s look book is filled with new looks for the back to school time this pre-fall, but I think we can take a few cues from it.
Geek Chic #3: Have your inner librarian embrace her inner rocker with a graphic T and socks. Tie that hair up into a top knot and accessorize with cute socks and glasses, and you’re a punky secretary with a high style IQ.
Nerd and geek style is less about being a nerd than embracing your inner brainiac and channeling it to show your razor-sharp wit, lightning-quick intellect. It’s chic, it’s comfortable, and least of all, you don’t have to worry about putting on drying, uncomfortable contacts.
All the pieces in this look are available at Forever 21, and are so affordable it’s easy to buy more than just one style to create a whole wardrobe of Geek Chic looks.
