Being a geek or acting geeky has long been associated with derogatory reference. The picture of a geek that instantly comes to mind is a bespectacled nerd obsessed with some intellectual pursuit and who is usually unable to adjust to “regular” social life, identifying him/her as a cast-out. It usually follows that a geek will have a peculiar sense of dressing which more often than not, is not accepted by the mainstream crowd.
But that was before the advent of geek chic.
Geek chic is a style that has evolved from the identifiable characteristics of a geek of which black-rimmed glasses is the most familiar. The style however, goes beyond the glasses as clothes become mainstream -acceptable without sacrificing the individuality of certified geeks. One of the more interesting developments is the formal wear which has observed to have been appropriately accessorized with usb cufflinks with geeky designs.
When we say geeky designs, we are talking about all the possible figures and symbols associated with a geeky lifestyle. The most commonly appropriated designs are those related to technology such as computer symbols, gaming figures, and techie gadgets. Of course, there is no limit to the possibilities in design. In fact, many stylish geeks choose to design their own and have them handcrafted for their personal use.
Many male celebrities have tried the look at some point and came out looking like winners. Although this is a tribute to the fact that geeky fashion has arrived, there is much left to be explored in this department. So who says geeks can’t dress up? Geeks can bring the look anywhere from casual wear with geeky prints and accessories all the way to formal wear with geeky usb cufflinks.
