The Geeks Get the Girls

Back in the Stone Ages, striped shirts, suspenders, thick-rimmed glasses and pocket protectors described the typical geek. Now when peeps think of geeks, they think of Seth Cohen, whose existence was only known when he was being beaten up by the water polo players. But he's gone from being a social outcast to the object of Summer Roberts' affection, all the while proving to everyone that it's totally hip to be dorky.

Geek Chic

The impossibly cool nerd with a love for witty one-liners and indie rock bands landed a popular girl with his sincerity and geek chic. So here's how you can get the look - and the girl! When you tune into The O.C. on Thursday nights, you'll see Seth in Mr. Rogers-style cardigans, sweater vests and [kwlink]Chuck Taylors[/kwlink]. These classic sneakers are a wardrobe essential since they look good with everything and instantly add a touch of retro cool to your style. Other key pieces to look geek chic are graphic tees, polo shirts, dress shirts, track jackets and a lot of stripes and argyle patterns. Whatever you wear, the rule of thumb is to keep it slim and slender. So be dorky yet cool in a striped dress shirt, an argyle sweater and a pair of slim-fitting trousers.

Targeting Teen Trends

Adam Brody and Seth Cohen are totally similar - Adam even admits to being a closet nerd who hangs out in comic book stores and likes to be first in line for the latest superhero flick! The on and off-screen trendsetter has even revived interest in the Original Penguin vintage clothing brand, which recently opened its first store in New York. Adam is so geek chic that his styles, such as sweater vests over polo shirts, have made their way onto the racks at Target, so be sure to check them out!

    I think you should be you wether or not your tomboy or girlie your being you. You have your own style and don't let nobody change that because THEY don't like it it only matters if YOU like it

    This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!

    I'll say some stuff that 'girly-girls' do, and the stuff in the brackets would be things added by my best friend. Who is also very annoyingly sarcastic! -.- Paint your toes (get obsessed to them too, all of these girls are!), wear cute little dresses (don't mean huge ballgown style dresses, duh?) , or just fun-cute tops with jeans, maintain your nails (perfectly), take a lot of care about your skin, maintain it, cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate, and start doing make up. (Also, I would suggest to learn how to do a good hair flip, for some reason girly girls are like 'ERMAIGAWD' *flip hair*) Yes, my best friend is annoying but she's girly enough to be able to have a say in here. Here's a bit of advice from me, don't try to change your style because of what people might think or say, do it if you want to and if you feel comfortable with it. You are more than perfect the way you are, whether a tomboy or a girly-girl and it doesn't really matter what you are.
