Think you need to sport your little brother’s Star Wars tees and spend your Thursday nights watching Big Bang Theory to channel your inner nerd?

Take cues from the runways this season to embrace the geek culture phenomenon without ever opening your chemistry textbook.

Eyeglasses are undoubtedly the signature accessory for geek chic style. Think bookish with a hipster twist a la Justin Timberlake – slightly askew, thick-rimmed or translucent. From Marni to Prada and Sonia Rykiel, designers paired studious specs with boy-fit trousers, oversized blazers, knee-high socks, plaids and chunky knits. For the ultimate Einstein vibe, opt for a palette of browns, dusty pink and oxblood red.
