Forget fishnets. Geeky gals prefer the DNA helix look with the help of special science stockings.

Geek fashion isn't always subtle. There are Boba Fett winter hats , Game Boy dresses , and eye-screaming Marty McFly hats . And then there's this set of Helix Stockings. Subtle, tasteful Helix Stockings.

For the science lady who has everything, these $17.99 stockings are off-black and made from nylon and spandex with a velvet-like DNA helix design running nearly a foot long on the side.

The stockings are machine washable and will go easily from giving a paper at a science conference right into after-dinner cocktails. Two different sizes are available covering stocking sizes A through D.

Think of it as a gene alternative to jeans. Consider pairing these with a USB locket for storing your research files and get ready to hit the lab in style.
