We all love our geek swag and we spend good money on it, too much to simply wear it on weekends or during cons! So here at Girls on Games, we want you to have a geek chic outfit for every occasion. We’ve teamed up with Ubi Workshop to bring you fashionable fall ensembles that go from casual to formal and everything in between.
Ali: The Abstergo Entertainment Intern
You’ve done it! You’ve landed your dream internship in one of the biggest entertainment companies in the world! You may be ready to climb the corporate ladder but you still want to rock that comfy youthful ensemble. Ali paired her Abstergo Entertainment baseball tee with some staple pieces: leggings, grey Vans, a beanie and a killer jean vest. Paint your nails red and flick that liner into a cat-eye to let them know that you still mean business!
Cat SD: Victorian Details
The Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Hidden Blade long sleeve shirt is a great wardrobe staple that can be work appropriate. Catherine went on the more casual side of business casual by pairing this detailed shirt with dark jeans, army style booties, a colourful scarf, cute earrings and – as an ode to AC Syndicate’s Victorian era setting – a cameo locket. Lose the beanie, switch the booties for some tasteful flats and add a blazer or jacket you’ve got a more office appropriate look.
Cat A: The Retro Hipster
Ah the hipster trend: where casual meets preppy in an eclectic yet appealing way. Cat A rolled up the sleeves to her Ubisoft Vintage Logo baseball tee and paired it with a form fitting pencil skirt. Add a stunning pair of platform booties to amp up the style and put on a beanie for that authentic hipster look. Don’t forget your headphones so you can listen to the latest underground band on your iPhone. We’ve probably haven’t heard of it anyway.
Leah: Rock & Leap of Faith
Wearing this ensemble doesn’t require a leap of faith. Leah was inspired by the eagle design of her Altaïr tank top and went all out rocker: a pleather jacket, studded platform sneakers, a silver statement necklace and killer shades. Swap the jacket for a form fitting blazer, the sneakers for a classic pump, add an elegant clutch and you’ve got a formal look that is evening appropriate yet still edgy.
Shannon: A Templar Formal Affair
Who’d wear a sweater to a formal occasion? A fashionable geek like Shannon, that’s who! Dress up your Assassin’s Creed Unity Elise sweater with shiny leggings, elegant boots and delicate earrings. Finish off the look with a belt to flatter your figure like the Assassin’s Creed III Connor belt or the Assassin’s Creed Aveline belt. Yes, it’s ok to mix Templar items with Assassin’s Creed ones. After all, Elise and Arno do join forces in the end.
