This ModCloth set comes with three pairs of earrings: beakers, atoms, and protractors. They have just the right hint of color to be fun but still rather subtle. Since it comes with three pairs, you can even mix them up to wear a beaker and atom one day or an atom and protractor another!

Shiro Multisticks

Celebrate some of the greatest women of science with the multisticks at Shiro Cosmetics. These balms can be used for lips or face and are available in a variety of colors. They are inspired by women like mathematician Katherine Johnson, chemist and physicist Marie Curie, astronomer Caroline Herschel, and experimental physicist Chien-Shiung Wu.

Subscription Box

Why buy one thing when you can buy a whole science fashion themed box as a gift? Sci Chic still has some remaining subscription boxes from 2017 available for kids and adults with themes like coding and anatomy. In each box you can get necklaces, pins, rings, earrings, and other items. 

In the Lab Long Sleeve Shirt*


ThinkGeek’s In the Lab button-down is a great way to bring some chemistry into your daily routine. The purple cotton shirt features molecules, flasks, and more that will make it obvious to those who recognize the symbols that your interests have a scientific bent.
