Fashionably geek

Being a geek can be fashionable too. A common misconception is that geeks are inherently unfashionable. Think Big Bang theory. Well let’s just set the record straight. Just because you’re into tech and the digital space doesn’t mean you spend your weekends dressed in star trek gear.

Geek-dom can still be cool and it looks like geek is in and “I’m too cool for school” is out. Bottom line – being geeky is the way of the future.

Geek meets cool

Sitting behind a laptop all day doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style. Relishing in geek-pride check out some of these awesome geeky items that you can be sure the latest It Girl will be adding to her collection soon. Maybe not everything on the list, but even if they are slightly more geeky than chic, you have to admit they’re super cool!

Here ate 6 geeky accessories that take fashion in their stride and let the fashionable geek in you shine.

Custom Twitter Nikes

Ladies, I wouldn’t suggest you rush out and buy these but if you’re man is into tech they could make an conversation piece at your next braai. Guys, if you’re looking to pick up a geek chic rocking a pair of these might just boost your chances. Maybe sketch in your twitter handle to enter super geek-mode.

Code of Love T-Shirt

For the average Joe who doesn’t know what CSS or HTML is this will soar over their heads, but for those in the know, you can’t help but crack a little smile..

Custom twitter necklaces

Having a necklace with your name or initial on it is so last season. Get with it and get one with your twitter handle. Maybe just caution where you wear t as you might get some dodgy new followers (or stalkers) if you’re not careful.

 Star Trek Cuff Links

Ok this one is super geeky and I would shun a guy a little if I saw him wearing this (for real) but if you work in a digital agency or tech environment and rock up to a meeting wearing these, besides standing out and getting yourself notices,  it’s a great ice breaker! Word of warning: Just stick to English, not Klingon.

Password Protected Panties

I think every father out there wishes this was a real Password Protected Panties existed and that he could control the login details.

Broken Image Pendant

For anyone in our game you know the sign. It’s just as bad as “404 webpage not found” and makes you want to smash your computer against a wall.

So it’s pretty funny, and ironic, to create a jewellery piece out of a ‘broken’ image. Let others share in your frustration.
