Autumn Trend: Geek-Chic Glasses

Monday, September 26, 2011



Another trend that I'm super excited about this autumn is the geek-chic glasses rage. I've been wearing glasses for years but just recently I swapped my clean-cut frames for round-shape granny-style. I am totally loving them as they give me such an oversized 80's nerd vibe:). The word on the street is that even if you don't need specs, you can always sneak a pair with just clear glass. Lovelies, what do you think about geek-chic glasses? Will you be wearing them this season? xo

I'm normally less keen on trends, but I adore spectacles, but the ones above are so lovely especially the first. Have a nice Monday;-)

I don't think I could pull this look off myself, but it is definitely adorable for those who can!
Congrats to the lucky Emerson Made winner - what a great way to start a Monday!
Have a lovely day!

I see so many girls in Paris wearing these glasses and although they do not suit me (at all!), I think they are so pretty.

I don't think I'm brave enough to pull them off, but I sure like them on other ladies.

Alexa said...

I love them. Considering buying a pair!

I love geek chic glasses! Unfortunately, they don't love me. I'm more of a "secretly sexy librarian" kind of glasses wearer. Have a wonderful monday! xo

It's the funniest thing, I love these shapes for sunglasses, but I don't like the way they look as reading glasses. My reading glasses are still pretty librarian-esque though, which is pretty appropriate since I am a librarian. ;-)

They look quite a bit like these, actually, but they're Nine West, not Warby Parker:

Ha, I might still have my glasses from the 1980s except, sadly, my prescription has gotten much stronger :)

Diana Mieczan said...

The Franglaise, so good to know that girls in Paris wear them as well. I feel oh-so French right now:) Yahoo!

Diana Mieczan said...

Kristina, they sound really beautiful and Ashley, my Balazs always says that glasses make me look more grown up.

Diana Mieczan said...

You totally should get a pair, Marissa. They would look awesome on you:)

TheChambrayCountess said...

I like the nerd-glasses trend so much that I got a pair at SEE that are nerdy, but classic enough that I can wear them beyond the trend. And don't get me started on Warby Parker-- love!

Christianna said...

Loves it!

Amber Blue Bird said...

Im all over it!

diana said...

These are so adorable and I love them on Zoey from "New Girl"...shes awesome!! My stepdaughter actually popped out the lenses from a pair of 3D glasses and now she has a funky pair of glasses that look like these!! :) She makes me smile when she wears them!

Hope you had a great weekend love! How was the party?

Krystal said...

they are cute but i doubt i could pull them off!

Diana Mieczan said...

So true, Di, Zoey is amazing and what a fun idea to pop out the lenses of a pair of 3D glasses. They always have such a cute shape. Your stepdaughter must look so sweet wearing them:)

The party was fantastic:) I'm still on the French-high..oh la la:)Thanks for asking, darling.

I love larger glasses. However, it does depend on who is wearing them. I don't wear glasses, but I do have a fake pair.

Caroline said...

Diana Mieczan said...

Aww..thank you, Caroline!

Looks so cute! Reminds me of Zoe in The New Girl. I also wear glasses - but mine are the black Chanel square-shaped.
