Geek Chic Style

We love Rachel Berry's (Lea Michele) geek-chic look on Glee! We can't get enough of her preppy cardigans, pleated skirts and prim sweater vests. The key to geek chic style is to wear everything with confidence. Proudly put on your glasses, carry your satchel bag and wear your penny loafers with pride! Glee is a prime example of why being a "geek" has never been cooler. The Glee club members were laughed at by their peers in the beginning, they quickly proved everyone wrong by making it cool again! Thousands of teens all over the world are now signing up for similar clubs or joining their school choirs. There's even a nickname for Glee fanatics - the Gleek! Now that's what we call Revenge of the Nerds! Check out our picks for the best geek chic clothing and accessories!

The Cardigan

Not only is the cardigan a practical addition to any wardrobe, it gives you serious geek chic cred to sport one with a crest or preppy logo on it! Bonus points for a bright colour or argyle print. Sweater vests are also a good alternative!


School girl blazer

Pair a blazer with skirts or dresses and flat shoes for a comfortably cool geek chic look!


Button Up Shirts

Wear a classic white button-up shirt or pick one with a cute print or design or in a fun colour! Pair with anything from skirts to jeans and layer under sweaters, sweater vests or cardigans.


Satchel bags

These come in loads of sizes and shapes and is the classic geek chic carry-all. Carry a small satchel bag one for everyday and a larger one for school. Think of Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl!


Loafers or Oxford shoes

These shoes will add a preppy edge to any outfit especially if you pair them with little white ankle socks when the temperature gets warmer! Wear with skirts and dresses and look adorably geeky chic!


Hair Accessories

Go for wide headbands and barrettes to finish off your look and keep your hair out of your face in the chicest way possible!

I feel like that too! I know where you're coming from, but believe me, I've moved on. Those people? Bleh. Not worth my time, and certainly don't deserve me.  You described me exactly: good with people and friends, but don't have a best friend at all, and others really don't care whether I'm lonely or sad. Well, it might sound crazy, but guess what? I've found a friend in me instead of others. I've learned to accept that you can't please everyone, and that some of the fish in the sea aren't worth wasting your time on. So I've become independent, to learn to depend on myself more than to rely on others. Trust me, it works, and I think it'll work for you. But if you really need a friend, me and @alienincognito are here to talk to you if you need us! @alienincognito: LOL! DUDE! That's HOW I THINK! Whenever one of my friends talks behind my back or backstabs me, I'm like, "Ah, whatever, 'screw em, I'll let Karma take over! I ain't letting those negative peeps ruin my day." Maybe you, me, and hasti10 could start a group where we can talk to each other!  :) :D 8)

I've always felt the same way. My one best friend gossiped behind my back, used me, all that girl stuff. She took me for advantage and we had a bunch of fights because of her finding a new friend and completely acting as if I didn't exist, and I told her to give me at least some attention every once in a while if she can't even continue to talk to me daily. And.. I lost her. Well, she lost me. We both lost each other. But then I realized.. it's the people that you least expect to be nice to you you'll find kindness in. Why? Based on personal experience, and I'll tell you the story: For my gym class, me and my peers were supposed to make a group for a dance. This was when my best friend had found a new friend already, and the time at which we had a few fights because of that. Of course, I relied on my best friend to count me in her dance group. At lunchtime, I sat together with my best friend, and we ate our lunches in silence. All of a sudden, I brought up the dance groups and asked her straightforwardly: "Can I join your group?" No reply. "Kelly, can I join your group?" No reply. "I mean, since our class is uneven, I found it fair that there'd be a group of five, you know?" None at all. Kelly ignored me straight off the bat, leaving me speechless. My mind raced with thoughts, and I thought, maybe it's not worth having Kelly as a friend. A few days later, we were playing Dodgeball for gym. I was on Kelly's team, and overheard her talking with her new friends about who to pick for the dance group. One of her friends mentioned me, and Kelly said: "Oh no, we shouldn't pick her because _____ (I don't know what she said then)." I was shocked, but was anticipating it, so when the time came to choose groups, I saw my friend, Luke, ask two girls, Cher and Bridgette, to join their group. Surprisingly, Cher and Bridgette actually accepted him, and so I thought, "Wow, if they accepted Luke, they might accept me aswell!" and so built up the courage to ask them if I could join. Even though Cher and Bridgette were mean to me sometimes, I knew that I had to risk it and see what'd happen. Afterall, rejection is just another opportunity to find a better group. Little did I know, it'd be the best choice of my life. They were so happy, and even thanked me for joining them! I was speechless once more; I never knew that the peers that I thought I would never be friends with would actually be my friends!  So yeah, that's what I learnt, and I never regretted learning that fact. Ever since then, though, I've learnt not to trust people as much as I used to anymore. I learnt that independency is what works for me, what I was meant for in terms of socializing or working. But, other things may work for you. If you still want a friend, you can be independent and wait for the right person. However, if you still want a real friend, you can wait, but still mingle (hang out) with other people! I I'm not going to make fun of you because I know how you've felt, just as I stated in my past problem before. But you can move on from those friends, they're not worth your time and certainly don't deserve you as a friend. Trust me, if it's meant to be, you'll definitely find a true friend. But if it's not, you may become like me, finding happiness in my own way. I want to remind you though-- you don't need someone to stay happy, or keep you company. This may sound silly, but you can even have your own invisible friends! I've had one, but that's very rarely for me. It's not silly though if you see the general idea; usually these friends are made from different dimensions of your personality or just because of will. There's a lot more fish in the sea, though, so I'm sure you'll find a true friend that's meant for you  :) Take care, and I hope you'll find a true friend soon!
