Back To School Style: NBA's Geek Chic Trend (PHOTOS)

As back-to-school season gets underway, it's the perfect time to refresh your style and try a few new trends. One look that we're really digging this season is "geek chic."

Thanks to a a few NBA superstars like LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Amar'e Stoudemire-- thick rimmed glasses, plaid shirts, suspenders and other preppy stylings are having a moment. After schooling their opponents on the basketball court, it was fun to see the ballers show off their sartorial skills during the post game press conferences.

We saw Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade channeling the college cool (and closely named) character of Dwayne Wayne from "A Different World" in a pair of flip-up glasses. Westbrook took on more a Steve Urkel look and Durant even rocked a backpack--the ultimate back-to-school accessory--during an interview.

Check out some of the fellas' best "geek chic" ensembles in the slideshow below. We're loving the look--are you a fan?
