Fashion Trends at Comic-Con 2015

Cosplayers may have been out in force this year at Comic-Con 2015, but the geeky fashionistas gave them a run for their money. Geek fashion was on the minds of many this year with the 2nd Annual Her Universe Fashion Show on Thursday night, two panels dedicated to the business and styling of geek fashion, and a standing-room only happy hour hosted by Fashionably Nerdy on Friday night. Walking the exhibit floor, I saw dozens of vendors featuring dresses, jewelry, purses, and more. Geeks of all shapes, sizes, ages and genders were celebrating their fandoms with original fashion ensembles. Here’s a few of the best trends seen on the floor.

Pin-Up Geeks

The fashion and geek communities are in love with the 1940s and this retro trend showed up in outfits celebrating superheroes, villains, killer plants, and even Ghostbusters. These dresses showed off these geeks’ curves and fandoms.

Geeky leggings have been trending for several years now, but these fans really added their own unique style to the look by pairing them with creative pieces.

Everyday Cosplay

Geeky fashionistas have been celebrating a new trend where you channel your favorite characters into your fashion. None of these ensembles would look out of place walking down the street, but each is a nod to a personal geek favorite.

Do-It-Yourself Fashion

These creative fans created these custom pieces either from licensed fabrics or by constructing them completely from scratch. These geeks can do it all!

Men’s Fashion

Last, but certainly not least, the men showed off their own style with vintage fashion, handmade pieces and everyday cosplay looks. After all, fashion isn’t just for female fans.
