Whoa, Geek Out! How To Nail the Geek Look

Get started

Whether you’ve scored a cool job at a tech firm, or you’re just giving your style a little overhaul, you might be wondering how you can incorporate the geek look into your everyday wardrobe. While geek-chic reeks of the 90s, the core of the style, that is the crisp, sharp tailoring and well curated accessories, actually reign on.

But how can you adopt the geek style without going overboard and looking like you belong in the mathletes team of an American high school? Good question. The answer lies in being strategic, and choosing the right mix of clothing and accessories to give your existing look a geeked-up twist.

Your Geek-Out Starter Kit

When trying a new style, it’s important to take it slow. Don’t go full clear-lense specs and bow tie too soon – you’ll struggle to carry the look with the confidence it needs. Think subtle changes that express intelligence, attention to detail and a smart silhouette. Try these 3 key pieces to get yourself into the geeky groove.

Blazer

Guess what? There’s more to blazers than a university lecturer’s wardrobe. A blazer will smarten up any outfit, and can be paired with jeans, suit pants or even shorts. For a real geek-out gamble, choose one that’s particularly fitted, and push the sleeves up a little so they’re slightly short. This quirky touch will give you that added geek factor, while still looking smart and office-appropriate.

Shoes

Take it from us, when it comes to geek style, brown shoes will be your go-to. There’s just something about brown footwear – be it brogues, desert boots or platform sneakers. Make sure they’re in immaculate condition, clean, and paired with a slim fitting pair of jeans or pants. Laces? Bonus.

Bright Shirt

This is your opportunity to have a little bit of fun. Think loud shirts with a print that’s nauseatingly fashionable. Opt for the classic buttoned-to-the-top look and throw on a fine knit jumper over the top – and add the blazer for cooler weather. The clever use of print and colour adds quirk without crossing the fine line between geek and hipster.

At Kent and Lime, we understand that as a busy working man, you might struggle to nail the styles you love. Whether it’s through lack of time, or lack of wanting to trudge round stores working out if things are ‘so you’, somehow it always gets bumped off your to-do list. That’s why we created Kent & Lime.

Here's what our happy customers are saying.

I'll never have to enter a shopping centre again!! Received my first kit. Felt like a kid again, getting Christmas present... Hands down one of the best outfits I've ever worn! It was like everything was hand picked, styled for a perfect fit. I was so impressed, especially with all the compliments received!! I'm changing my whole wardrobe. Thanks Mimi!!!

Could not be happier with Kent and Lime. After having a good chat with Denice (my stylist) got a kit the next day. Everything fit really well and she absolutely nailed the style I was after! Had another chat regarding aspects I liked and aspects I didn't like and now can't wait for the next kit. As someone who hates shopping for clothes I will never step foot in another clothing store again!

I gave K&L a crack because I don't enjoy clothes shopping and I get bored if I can't find what I want right away. My first stylist chat was good, the first couple of kits were hit and miss but the kit I just received (from a new stylist, Denice) is bang on. I'm not sending anything back, she absolutely nailed it, leaving me no reason to go clothes shopping.
