Fashion is constantly changing even for those who put more of a geeky spin on their wardrobes. Geek fashion typically focuses on characters and styles from nerdy books and movies, such as Dragon Ball Super tank tops, and is usually quite comfortable. You may see this fashion statement beginning to take up more space at your favorite retailer or at your online fashion home. However, knowing how to wear it may still be a mystery to you. If you want to be in style while continuing to stay true to your real passion, check out this basic 2018 guide to geek fashion.
Pastels are big this year especially during the spring and summer. Of course, the Pantone color of the year plays a huge part in geek fashion ensembles with vibrant purple popping up all over. Try pairing these hues with ripped jeans, floral-embroidered jean skirts or tulle skirts. Besides tulle, another favorite texture this year is leather, which is popping up on pants, skirts and shoes.
Men have it easy and need only pick button-down collared shirts and sweater vests to fit right into the fashion scene. Women can also play up the menswear theme this year by choosing traditional straight cuts for trousers and shirts. Be sure to stick with collared shirts, layering them over button-down cardigans. Also, slacks, those straight-cut pants, are back in after years out of favor.
If you do not have it in you to change your entire wardrobe for this year’s biggest changes, consider changing up a few of your accessories. Glasses, particularly those with large, plastic frames, are truly big this year and are popping up everywhere.
Now you do not have to worry about wearing uncomfortable, sky-high heels to work if you are a woman. Loafers are in for men and women alike. Women will love this casual twist on the flat. Try an option with tassels or fringe.
Besides all of these geek chic outfit ideas, you can still add in shirts and jackets emblazoned with your favorite movie characters, book lines or pop culture sayings. Consider a t-shirt from your favorite rock band or a Goku tank top if you are an anime lover.
As you can see, traditional favorites, comfort and bookworm-inspired clothes and accessories are among the top finds for geek fashion in 2018. You will be quickly seeing these on the streets in any major city and can even expect to see them on runways at fashion shows around the world this year. If you are ready to hop on this fashion bandwagon, consider starting small by adding an easy accessory, such as wide-frame specs or tasseled loafers.
