"man, your style is *so* geek-chic!"
An obvious oxymoron, 'geek chic' emerges from oxygen deprived hallucination in which geeks evolve into actual existence as a sort of technocracy radiating the holy aura of cool. You will find no more crushing an argument against geek chic than Bill Gates, who despite being the richest man in the world sports an apparent $5 coiffure and birth control glasses.
"You speak of geek chic, let let he who amongst you has an actual example of it speak now."---- Jesus Christ c 23 A.D.
Clothing or accessories that are very geeky/nerdy and yet, at the same time, says "I'm cool because I'm proud of the fact that I'm a nerd, and am not afraid to dress the part".
"Why are you wearing a pen with pocket protector? That's so geeky!"
"Hey, it's practical. Let people think I'm a nerd - I am! It's geek chic!"
Geek chic is a cynical marketing trend that tries to tap into the large geek demographic by superficially adding generically geeky elements to otherwise non-geeky people. By wearing glasses, carrying the latest Sharper Image gadgets, and casually dropping computer terminology and Star Trek references in their speech, geeks are supposed to believe these same models and actors/actresses that would never consider them in real life is a "cool" version of themselves. Obviously, only the most naive geeks fall for this.
Warner Bros. sure is cynical to expect us to find the geek chic added to Clark Kent in Smallville plausible when the actor was an underwear model.
Dress almost identical to hipsters but verge more towards being into comic books, pop culture, technology, etc. rather than hipsters who are more into poetry, brooding, and generally being pretentious.

Created by a student at Penn State, this phrase refers to some one (usually a male) who sports a "geek" look, but wears it well. While it can refer only to the overall look, it more appropriately refers to someone who not only sports a geeky-hot look, but is also very intelligent.

is a recent (retarded) trend that has popped up everywhere. First starting with hipsters, but like everything hipsters do, it has gone mainstream
. Everyone thinks they're a geek now because the have a Facebook or own a high tech phone. Geek Chic has nothing to to with actual geeks, seeing as real geeks could care less about fashion and a lot of them think it's a vapid hobby.
Geek Chic within it's self is an oxymoron and ironic twist of events by people who are generally not geeks, attractive men and women who want to act like geeks but don't actually have the passion for geeky hobbies or the intellect. Real geeks got picked on, and were proud to call themselves geeks because they could construct their own PCs or were very good at math or something, not because they spend massive abouts of times on Xbox play Call Of Duty or in some consumer electronic like an iPod or iPhone. Real geeks consider iPods
s basic shit.
