Sunday Pinspiration No. 8

You know what comes up when you type "geek chic" -- for lack of a better term -- on Pinterest? Hot girls, plus glasses. When I set out to make this board, I was open to some irony, some tongue-in-cheek, costumey representations. But I was hoping for something a touch more complex than a naughty secretary stereotype. Oh well. I can play along!

When I think of nerdy fashion, I think of staples like the thick plastic frames, Converse sneaks and button-down shirts. I think of a prim and proper aesthetic gone a bit punky and askew. And I think of fandoms. We go hard. Just look at cosplayers, and slow clap for them while you're at it.

Geeks just do it better.
