Karlie Kloss is coding, Gucci’s AW15 show in Milan was a celebration of all things geeky and Kendall Jenner has been spotted pairing glasses with a turtleneck… ‘geek chic’ is in and it’s time to indulge your inner nerd!
In between Tommy Hilfiger going tropical and the 70’s influence making it’s mark again this season, Gucci created the ultimate incarnation of modern ‘geek chic’, expertly combining pleats, high necklines and low hemlines with elements of surprise; sheer fabrics, metallics and fur.

The geek has been a celebrated character throughout fashion history, we see this trend pop up time and time again. She is tailored, tidy and best of all, mysterious. Her mystery is what serves the geek best.
Wear your hair neat and maximise the collared shirts in your wardrobe by buttoning them all the way up. Team your shirt with a pair of well-tailored pants, and add a bookish clutch if you’ve got one! Don’t be afraid to let the private school girl out, like our favourite geek, Miroslava Duma demonstrates so well.
SO – abandon those contact lenses and break out the rimmed glasses…….
Or go full girl-boss and get inspired by J.Crew’s Creative Director, Jenna Lyons:
Whichever you prefer, don’t be afraid to embrace the nerd this season!
