Happy New Year fellow geek fashionistas!
It wouldn’t be fashion if we didn’t change our look, and our blog is no exception! It’s been months in the planning, but we’re very excited to start the new year off with a new logo and general overhaul of the look of our blog. We love the upgrade, and hope you do too.
In the year and half since we started this blog, geek chic fashion has increased at a whirlwind pace. We say it a lot, but it’s true – it has never been a better time to be a stylish geek!
Once relegated to raiding the men’s and boy’s section for Star Wars t-shirts, or entirely DIYing your own outfits or accessories, these days geek chic girls now have a role model and spokesperson in the inspiring and stylish Ashley Eckstein, and a clothing line just for us in her groundbreaking company – Her Universe!
Popular fashion companies like Black Milk have made a thriving business just catering to stylish geeks, releasing four geek themed collections this year alone, with at least two more already highly anticipated releases to come in the first half of 2014.
There’s now a myriad of choices of where to get fashionable and high-end jewelry from, ranging from licensed companies like nOir Jewelry and Guild Jewellery, to fan-made pieces from now well-known and popular jewelers like Paul Michael, who took the Internet by storm with his custom R2D2 engagement ring. Panels on geek fashion are now a staple at most cons, and there’s definitely been an increase in the number of blogs, articles, tutorials and videos focusing on geek chic fashion.
And of course, as there always has been, and always will be, there are incredible themed and inspired items made by and for fashionable geeks that can be found all over the net!
Geek fashion is as unique and varied as geeks are themselves, reflecting the wearer and expressing a myriad of style types. While it’s natural for fashion trends to come and go, I think stylish geek outfits will always be around, and we’ll continue to see our beloved fandoms inspiring looks on the runway, in the stores, and in our very own closets!
Lindz and I are eager to see what 2014 brings to the world of geek fashion. We hope that you’ll continue to stick with us and see what we have to share with you each week! Along with our regular postings about apparel and accessories, we’ve got another round of Stunning Styles to share, more DIY Fridays, giveaways, contests, and we’ll finally be adding some video content too!
Here’s to a fashionably geek-filled year. We can’t wait!
