How to pull of geek chic glasses

September 27, 2017

How to pull off a geek chic look? If you’re wondering, I will let you know, just buy a pair of see through sunnies, add a beret with a brooch and you’re already a half-way there. Pair it all with something velvet and flared and you’ve got yourself a geek chic AND 70’s look. Both looks are so popular right now and you’ll be all “Fall stylish” in this kind of combo. 

I find “how to” posts to be very helpful when looking for an inspiration in anything, from dressing up to crafting, cooking, etc. Here is my version of “how to” post. I loved playing dress up with this outfit… I have never been into geek chic looks and haven’t been much into 70’s style either but this outfit was something I wanted to challenge myself with. I wanted to try something new and also play a little with my alter – ego, one I didn’t know I had. 😀

Remember my “Granny shoes” outfit post? Well, seems like I’m continuing to grow a chic grandma inside of me, hehehe.

I also must mention that Longchamp has some incredible pieces in their latest collection for Fall/Winter. This soft, colourful top was such a nice punch of colour on a chilly Fall day and the leather bag with laser cuts in front and golden details were a magical duo I have completed this look with.

The search for a fun Fall outfit is over, I can def. see myself re-wearing and also re-creating this look many times this season. Oh btw, I totally forgot to mention… HAPPY FALL!! I can’t even describe you how beautiful and magical Fall is in Helsinki! Golden, warm tones in the Nature are so dreamy and I’m using every chance there is to spend time in the parks, by the seaside and in the forest. Those are my escape moments which help me stay in the balance with a long working days and usual, every day life stress.

What are your plans for this Fall? I will take onto some trips, celebrate my big 3-0 birthday and plan my Halloween outfit as it’s such an important “party day” to my daughter and she really wants me to dress up and throw a party for her and her schoolmates. 😀

    As a fellow glasses wearer, I know the limitations of styling frames. These are so chic and adorable, I love the clear frames. I may have to snag a pair myself.
