Believe it or not, the beauty and fashion world have a lot in common with the “geek” universe. Both are about transporting to a special place in your mind where the best magic happens. I admit, I am a self-professed book-loving, wand wielding nerd, but you also won’t catch me in a stained comic book shirt with a hoodie. I used book t-shirts for these looks, but you could substitute these shirts for superhero shirts as well. I’ve created three looks that allow you to embrace your inner geek all while looking chic!
Outfit, makeup and dupe details listed below.
You Know Nothing, Jon Snow
I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones, especially the brooding and mysterious bastard, Jon Snow. So when I saw this shirt I knew I had to have it. I paired it with a some staples for fall, combat boots, knee-high socks, an oversized sweater and floppy hat.

A Bit of Black Magic
I have a bit of a Harry Potter obsession and I also love black. So for this book I channeled my inner Slytherin (even though I’d never be in Slytherin), and I even broke out some black lipstick. This look is spellbinding with a long black skirt, jeans or even a nude lip.

Meet You on the Quidditch Pitch
My equally nerd-obessed sister got me the wonderful shirt and mug in this picture (I think she’s trying to get me a wizard loving guy). But I love the play on a Qudditch Keeper with this fun shirt. Add a beanie and leather jacket and you’re ready for any game, real or magical.
