Geek Chic Spring Summer 2016 – The Inspiration

The inspiration for this Geek Chic post comes from Vogue’s article ‘Spring/Summer 2016: What To Know‘ which was published back in October 2015 (real Fashion is always ahead of time).

The image above is from this article and the description was ‘Luxe Geek Chic
Return of the nerds: Gucci’s Alessandro Michelle worked his magic to such an effect that everyone seemed to tap into a little of their inner geek chic this season. But at Gucci, it was amped up and luxed up – it’s about a bohemian glitter geek this time and adding just as much sparkle as sensible.’ (

From this look I’ve taken the following; the obvious luxury, geek and chic looks but also the 50’s ‘housewife’ look, the 60’s Woodstock look, and the 70’s Eurovision Song Contest look.

To help get the look – I’ve focused on online Irish Vintage and Vintage Style Shops … perhaps you know them well or maybe it’s an introduction … either way just add a pair of Geeky style glasses, some glittery accessories and you’re all GeekChic’d Up …
