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!

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