When the word nerd comes to mind, most people typically think some negative thoughts. Nerds spend their free time studying, suck up to the professor and always have their nose in a book. Do you know what else is being used to describe nerds? FashionableFor the past few seasons, these nerd-style glasses with thick frames and boxy lenses have been taking the fashion world by storm! They’ve been spotted on the runway, on dozens of celebrities and on students here at James Madison.

This Fashionista is spot on with her latest lenses. Not only do the frames complement her bone structure and overall face shape, but they’re also ridiculously cool. The textured brown frames set her pair apart from all the other eyewear out there and the neutral color ensures they’ll match any ensemble she chooses to wear! Similar frames can be purchased at the oh-so-fabulous Warby Parker. The best part about this brand is they also offer an at home try-on service so customers can be sure they’re satisfied with their selection before committing to the purchase!

For her everyday cozy look, this Fashionista paired her eyewear with a basic flannel top, jeans, combat boots and her trusty puffy jacket. The entire outfit works together with the glasses to create the perfect balance between comfortable and chic. If you’re in the market for a new flannel check out J.Crew; their fall and winter pieces typically hit the sale rack around this time of year! Combat boots in a similar style can be purchased from Steve Madden or Zappos!

Spotted: These nerdy frames have been featured in the runway shows of Marc by Marc Jacobs!
