Along with other tech saavy words like Selfie, a new term called Geek Chic is being officially added the Oxford English Dictionary. So what exactly is Geek Chic? Here is the definition of this new style according to TechCrunch:
geek chic, n.: the dress, appearance, and culture associated with computing and technology enthusiasts, regarded as stylish or fashionable.
But Fashion Illuminati fans have our own visual version of Geek Chic…
In a world where everyone does B.Y.O.D. (Bring Your Own Device) and Selfie-Saturdays, we think that Geek Chic is a mix of nerd glasses and digital luxury.
Being smart and technologically advanced in this new fashion age is just as important as being a sex symbol. Smart is the new sexy! Glasses are a key accessory for Geek Chic fashionistas.
We love this tailored pant-suit look accompanied by a menswear tie. The gender gap in fashion is closing and the line between masculinity and femininity is blurred. Fashion Illuminati is all about this strong female lead… Women are earning more money and dressing with more power. Geek Chic is a great way to express this new combination of intelligence and class.
But do not worry men… this Geek Chic trend does also involve you! A strong female leader still needs her man by her side. Instead of placing women on pedestals… women are seen as equals and have platforms to work from. With gorgeous, brainy women in the C-Suite, now men are starting to dress to impress. Embracing the future of fashion means that you will need to consider both your appeal to your own gender and the opposite sex.
Geek Chic for men trendsetters are Kanye West, Will.i.Am and Justin Timberlake. Revenge of the fashion nerds is coming! And we have to say that we love it! Dress smart and stay sexy!
