As I was reminiscing through my parents’ old year books, I remember being appalled at the fact that my mom would ever be caught dead in big, bold rimmed glasses. When glasses came to mind, so did pocket protectors, tube socks and suspenders. I should have known that those glasses would soon become a fashion must-have for many! Today, Fashionistas/os have embraced the fact that geek can actually be chic! These bespectacled beauties have become one of my favorite accessories.

Whether you have 20/20 vision or are as blind as a bat, the best part is no one will ever know the truth — shhh! Adding a pair of bold specs can give a very playful touch to your outfit.
This Fashionista certainly knew how to channel her inner nerd as she wore these fashionable Ray-Ban frames. Her simple, casual look consisting of leggings, a white knit sweater and cheetah print scarf placed further emphasis to her specs. I must note her red Longchamp tote and short Hunter Boots were key pieces to giving her that to die for fall look! The pop of red really complemented the black and white colors of her outfit really well.
The four-eyed look has never been so fashionable with tons of super cute eyeglass frames for every face shape.
