Autumn loves geeks

I have always had a bit of a thing for looking smart. I adore suit jackets, dress coats, high waist skirts and tailored trousers with heels....and in my opinion a man in a well made suit is to die for.

So how happy I am to announce that casual dress is a thing of the past and finally being a bit geeky makes you a fashion icon.

Men, the suit is back. I know it's been in fashion for a while, but it is an Autumn '10 must have. Were not talking James Bond here, but a good charcoal suit will never let you down if twinned with the right shirt and tie. Even bows ties and braces are being seen on the catwalk if your feel adventurous, so get raiding your Grandads tie rack boys :)

And ladies the rules are bent a little for us. You can choose one of two ways to fulfill your geeky desires.

One: Be lady like. By this I mean think very 30's/40's styling. There are so many lace shift dresses and lovely cropped suit jackets about at the moment, as well as high waist skirts and retro twin sets just begging to be finished with your Grandmas pearls....the choices are endless, but you don't have to look like your playing dress up, just keep hem lines either very short or very long, and add statement lipstick or killer heels to feel more glam.

Two: Wear the trousers. This style is so versatile and easy to do. So many designers have shown elements of masculinity in there autumn ranges that must be inspired by the men's suit craze and this summers geek chic.
Tailored trousers, baggy shirts, boyfriend blazers, trilby's and even bow toes have been thrown our way ladies. Just make sure you team your masculine outfit with strong make up, and chunky bangles to girlie it up. Wear brogues in the day with trousers rolled up and killer heels at night. Who says geeks aren't sexy?

Personally I like to blend the two and make up my own wacky styles...but I guess thats why I was a geek before it was cool
