Trends Come and Go, But Are Geek Chic Glasses Here to Stay?
Whether they need prescription lenses or not, geek chic glasses are still showing up on the faces of today's biggest celebs. The trend has been going strong for over a year now, which has us wondering...is this nouveau nerd look here to stay?
As Heidi Klum says, "In fashion, one day you're in, the next day you're out." But the oversize dark frames that A-listers have been sporting don't seem to be going away anytime soon. Justin Bieber was spotted rockin' the look on his day off in Hawaii this week, and newly anointed fashionista Kelly Osbourne was wearing her frames at the Narita International Airport in Japan on Saturday.
But these specs aren't just for downtime. Mark Salling looked oh-so-Gleeky wearing his glasses at an event in September, and both Amber Riley and Joe Jonas have been bold enough to take the four-eyed style onto the red carpet. Amber used the frames as an accessory at the 2010 Video Music Awards while Joe pumped up the volume of his outfit at the Eclipse premiere in London.
We think the glasses definitely add some hipster cool to your style, but it takes a bit of confidence to rock the look right. What do you think of the dark frames? Is it chic to be geek or just plain weak? Who do you think wears the look best?
