Geek Chic Glasses Are Totally Cool!

Looking nerdy has never been cooler! The geek chic eyeglasses trend has emerged in the past few years and is stronger than ever! Wearing oversized thick frames is no longer considered unpopular or unattractive. The geek chic look nowadays is all about being trendy and sexy. Nerdy glasses are appearing on the runways and in high fashion print ads of designers such as Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana.

What exactly is the Geek Chic Trend?
It’s all about the oversized pair of thick vintage looking eyeglasses. They can be worn with lenses or without. Depending on your style you can get the classic black or go for a more eccentric look with pink, red or even clear. The frames must be bigger than the typical glasses you would normally wear. What truly makes this trend cool is how you pair the glasses with your outfit. Personally my style is pretty glam so I would pair my geek chic glasses with a long sequined jacket, leggings and over the knee boots.
The nerd trend has really elevated eyeglasses to a whole new level in fashion. Nerdy glasses are now being used to dress up an outfit just like you would with any other accessory. In fact the geek chic glasses trend has become so popular that you don’t even need a prescription to own a pair! You can buy non-prescription eyeglasses at stores like Hot Topic and American Apparel. High-end designer frames can be purchased from Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Ray-Ban. While more affordable brands like Urban Outfitters and Walmart also carry great geek chic frames.
