|Geek Chic the "Minnie" Rebellion|
I call it Geek Chic the “Minnie” Rebellion geeky with an edge.
For today’s I decided to combine tough with geeky and playfulness with edgy. We start off with a plaid button-up buttoned all the way to the top because that is the staple nerd look and then over that is this Minnie Mouse print pullover that has a hot pink bow and teal spots around the collar area which definitely gives it that fun vibe because of the bold colours. The look cannot be geeky without nerd glasses so I have on a pair in black to tie in with the rest of the black in the outfit.
I paired the tops with hot pink skinny trousers. OK the reason why there is an explosion of pink hues in this look of the day is because it “Pink Day” in the office, this is our way of supporting breast cancer charities so wearing Pink helps…
I wanted to elevate the look to have a more edgy feel but still keeping the geeky styling as the base so I went on and added this sequence bow tie with spikes in the middle. This pieces truly is a perfectly fit for today’s look, and of course I have on my poppy brooch.
The piece that really gave the look that sensationalist feel, is the leather moto jacket. It definitely brings edge and elevates it to a tougher take on geek chic and by draping the scarf over and around the jacket creates juxtaposition between the different textures.
For the accessories, I went with dainty pieces via a neon arm candy bracelet, cutesy stack rings and a heart spinner ring. Of course let’s not forget the watch. Personally I feel naked if I don’t have a watch on.
On bottom, I decided to go for my soft leather ankle bootie and the reason why I think this ties in well with the look is that it has this exposed lining detail and cross buckle design.
Last but certainly not the least is the “it” bag in my wardrobe, the leather bucket bag with fringing. This bag is certainly a go to piece especially for when the outfit styling is slightly on the edgy side. Not only is it a carry on it also comes with a cross body strap so it’s definitely a multipurpose piece and a good investment if I say so myself…XOXO…
That’s it for today’s LOTD and until the next time…FASHION IS THE DICTATOR OF TASTE! …XOXO…
