Trendspotted: The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth

Remember that kid on the playground with the headgear and the too-big-for-his-face glasses? The one that sports his own style, is king of the chess club, and studies for the SAT'S with the same energy we put into prom prep? Well today is his day! Today that kid is our fashion icon, because this season is all about Geek Chic!

We're calling it the Ugly Betty Effect, and we're keeping close tabs on it. Check out the new geek-inspired trends like suspenders, funky sunglasses high-waisted pants, and jumpers.

This season we're looking to the ultra fashion-savy, ultra-famous, ultra-nerdy Marc Jacobs and Chloe Sevingy who have always proudly rocked their individual style. Luella Bartley and Paul Smith both sent geek chic looks down the runway this season.

Right now we are loving Kate Spade's Pi Key Chain Ring, that reads "3.14159265358979323846" . This trend isn't just for the ladies either. What could be better than Dolce and Gabbana's Super Mario Brother's Tee for the geeky men in our lives?
