It’s never been cooler to be a dork. From tech fans to culture nerds and thoughtful indie kids, having a brain is totally on trend. That why we’re channeling all things adorkable, (that’s adorable and dorky), with off-beat clothes that don’t just follow the ‘cool’ crowd. But who are the muses for this geek-girl look? We run down our top three adorkable girls…
1. SUSIE BUBBLE
Who? Susie Bubble (really name Susanna Lau) – one of the first ever bloggers and a front-row regular at Fashion Week
Adorkable credentials: Since starting her blog Style Bubble in 2006, her quirky look and tech-savvy skills have made her everyone’s fav fashion geek
2. TAVI GEVINSON
Adorkable credentials: As well as becoming a successful publisher before even leaving high school, Tavi’s been dubbed “the voice of a generation” and gives TED talks alongside the world’s top experts and ideas-generators. This girl’s got serious brains!
Style? Awkward silhouettes, off-kilter prints and seriously crazy hats make Tavi the poster girl for outsider chic
Who? ’90s Hollywood teen star best known for playing indie misfits in both American Beauty and Ghost World
Adorkable credentials: She wins top geek points for playing Enid Coleslaw in Ghost World. Based on a comic-book character, Enid’s encyclopaedic knowledge of off-beat culture and lightening quick-wit makes her the coolest geek in film
