Now that it’s autumn and there’s new clothing lines in, it’s time for round 2 of Geek on the High Street! The aim of Geek on the High Street is to find and highlight geeky products that can be found in normal high street stores. Unfortunately a lot of womens clothes stores and department stores like Debenhams & M&S consider geeky stuff to be for men or children. So Geek on the High Street was born to shine a light on some of the hidden geeky treasures for geek girls. I’ll be mainly focusing on women’s fashion since mostly women read my blog, but if anyone is interested in a male version please let me know in the comments! You can check out round 1 here 🙂
This time I decided to create a pinterest board as well, and have pinned everything I’ve found on that board. This post only features a few of my favourites while the pinterest board has everything! 🙂
Please note – To view an item closer please click the image to see a bigger size.
New Look are continuing their love for unicorns in a range of products including these awesome t-shirts that I thought were fantastic! There’s also an umbrella and some lovely purses with cats and unicorns too.
Sports Direct remains the ruler of Geek on the High Street by far and right now a bunch of awesome stuff is on sale with ‘MUST GO’ tags. So go go go! There’s t-shirts, leggings, dresses, swim wear… really so much and all pinned on the pinterest board!
Sadly, George at Asda doesn’t have any geeky t-shirts or main clothing products but they do have a whole bunch of wonderful underwear and sleeping wear. How awesome are those Teenage Ninja Turtle briefs?!
Dorothy Perkings is sadly not very geek girl friendly, but I did find these cute quirky socks that I thought would appeal to come geeky girls.
H & M
H & M has a range of Disney and Band/Rock products to choose from. Here’s some of my favourites, and also a random esoteric/alchemy tote bag that I came across (and may have fell in love with…. 😉 ).
Carrying on the popular trend of Minnie and Mickey is Miss Selfridge and here’s a selection of some of their products featuring Disney’s infamous couple.
Another store that seems to think geeky stuff belongs firmly in the men or kids section is Next, however, I did find these few items that are a bit on the geeky side. Personally I love the Mouse socks, I think they’re so cute and elegant and a touch subtle.
Found these few gems in River Island; that cat t-shirt screams geek to me!
I know Tesco has its own clothing range, however, the website is for Tesco Direct which doesn’t really tell me whether these can be found in store. On the website there is a load of geeky stuff, however, this is Geek on the High Street not Geek on the web. I wanted to include a few of the goodies I found there because there is some seriously awesome stuff and if you have a Tesco near you, take a look sometime and see! More on the pinterest board if you want to see what else I found.
TK Maxx is more about brand names at affordable prices so they don’t tend to have much geeky stuff, occasionally you’ll find a few and these are what I found. A random Superpowers top which comes in a range of colours and this Art Loves unite which I thought might appeal to some artistis/art geeks 🙂
Top Shop had a reputation to keep up with after my surprise finds last time and it didn’t disappoint! There’s a range of Disney stuff, some random geeky things like the NASA and Dinosaur tops featured above, band/rock t-shirts and some Snoopy thrown in there too. Like before, everything I found is on the pinterest board.
So it turns out that Uniquo have an arrangement with Disney and these are just some of the wonderful results. As you can see there’s still some Minnie & Mickey, but a load of other Disney characters too! I am so excited to see the chipmunks (!!) and love the Tangled and Belle t-shirts. Be sure to check out the whole range on the pinterest board.
I hope you enjoyed this round of Geek on the High Street! Is there anything that caught your eye? Anything I’ve missed? Let me know!
