It started with big geeky glasses. This year, we spotted them on everyone from Madonna and Demi Moore to our very own trendsetting founder, Geri Brin. The streets of NYC are teeming with nerdy accessories, from scuffed Oxford shoes and schoolboy blazers to skinny suspenders. Here, our favorite items for introducing a little “geek” while keeping things chic:

1. Madonna rocks out in Buddy Holly “Nerd” glasses.

2. A tailored take on a teacher’s sweater: Wool Leather-Patch Cardigan from Ralph Lauren, $84.99.

3. Glasses that are a class(y) act: Jill Glasses in classic tortoise from Amy Sacks, $90.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated
    and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    I confess I have always had a bit of inner geek, and am enjoying the Geek Chic renaissance. My favorite Chic Geek of all time is also Diane Keaton. it may be cliched to call her style “quirky”, but, the always-inventive Keaton, has refined her unique — and yes, quirky — slightly geeky style with unparalleled panache over the years. Whether she is rocking geek glasses, mens shirts, ties, saddle shoes, hats or gloves, Keaton ALWAYS makes them look cool.
    I also have to give props to my girl Rachel Maddow for being ahead of the curve with her geeky glasses, and hip take on off-duty-anchor style.
