In case you haven't noticed yet, we've all been geeking out over the geek trend recently. While there are many ways to channel your inner nerd (read: patches, unconventional layering, quirky accessories), the obvious and most effective way to switch your geek mode on is still to sport your favorite specs—with style, that is. Because you see, making geek look chic is no rocket science.

Score a few pointers from the local celebrities below:

Spice up your basic tank top, jeans, and sneakers combo by throwing in a tailored piece to the equation. Then, like Maxene Magalona, give it a nerdy twist and finish off your outfit with black-rimmed glasses.

For Martine Cajucom's "back to school lewk," the It girl experimented with different shades of green for her plain tee, printed trousers, and leather backpack. After which, she completed her OOTD with a beauty from Sunnies Specs.

Trasienne Estrada calls herself "unapologetically dorky," and we love her for it. Not to mention she just set the bar high for pajama dressing.

Your specs can also give extra flair to your #TeamCozy outfit. Check out Tricia Gosingtian in her boxy turtleneck top, knee-length skirt, all-white adidas Superstars, and silver-rimmed glasses.

Elisse Joson gave her casual look an edgy yet geeky spin. Her fashion formula: black jeans, lace-up sneakers, basic white tank top, light-washed denim jacket, a choker necklace, and a pair of specs.

How about a more feminine take? Take a cue from Jackie Rice who injected a dainty flavor to her OOTD—ripped jeans, sneakers, and glasses—via an off-the-shoulder lace top.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
