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.
