How to: go film geek chic
Posted 25th September 2015 by SockShop
We’ve all got a bit of geek in us – but sometimes we choose to hide it.
Here’s how to get the look.
For added points, it should ideally be inspired by your favourite film character. The leather jacket worn by Tyler Durden in Fight Club is a big favourite, though a little too obvious.
On the feet it’s got to be classic Dr Martin boots. Go for one of the many outlandish colours or opt for the classic black.
The only other alternative is a pair of Converse All-Stars, preferably in bright colours and mismatched for that ‘I didn’t have time to find the right ones’ look.
Here you can really have fun – for the classic “geek” look try some horn-rimmed glasses and an oversized backpack. Think Edna from Ghost World.
Elsewhere, you can really go for it with everything from key rings to necklaces referencing your favourite films.
Finally, finish of the whole outfit with a pair of superhero socks.
Whether you’re a fan of Iron Man or Thor’s more your cup of tea, we’ve got you covered. We even cross the Marvel/DC divide with Superman socks.
If you’re not a fan of superheroes (say what?!), there’s always the likes of The Muppets, Minions, Sesame Street, Dr Who, The Simpsons, the list goes on.
