Remember when you were this biggest geek ever if you wore glasses? Good news for those of you rocking spectacles, the tables have turned! Not only have studies concluded that people who wear glasses look smarter, the fashion world has spoken and nerd glasses are an ‘it’ accessory!
The trick to finding the perfect frames is picking a style that suits you and a color that compliments your tones. Take a tip from this Fashionista who decided on large tortoishell frames, the perfect combination of fashion and hipster. I love that she pairs them with a leather jacket, chunky sweater, rings, and biker boots to complete the look but designers and celebrities alike have been sporting them with everything from heels and a ballgown to work out gear.
These bold heavy-rimmed geek glasses have been seen on the runways of Michael Kors, Sonia Rykiel, and Balenciaga, spotted on celebs like Chloe Sevigny, Peaches Geldorf and Daisy Lowe, and have now been seen rise on campus all over.
Got 20/20 vision? Urban Outfitters and other brands like American Apparel are famous for their fake lenses ranging anywhere from $18-$60. Sometimes you have to fake it to make it!
