Forget about smart and sophisticated, because one huge trend marching into the highstreet this A/W is Geek Chic.
Thick rimmed glasses, knitted preppy jumpers, brogues and socks up to the knees were all huge on the catwalks with designers such as Henry Holland channelling this trend and taking inspiration from TV shows such as Glee and Ugly Betty.
And this trend has already been picked up by celebrity fans with Alexa Chung and Chloe Sevigny leading the way and Britney Spears has also given a nod to this trend donning thick glasses for a daytime look.
So pull up your thick cable knitted socks/tights, grab that cardigan and satchel and get geeky.
