I have always loved geek glasses and was wearing them in the early 2000's before it was a trend. I would take the lenses out of them lol. Now that it's a big trend it feels a little stupid.. It's no longer funny or ironic. But I still love the way they look, and I hope they go out of style soon so I can wear them again

I feel like the whole nerd glasses thing has finally caught up with me and its kinda annoying to see people in nerd glasses trying to be cool. and then I get seen as a "posuer". I wear glasses cause I need them and it just so happens that I like mine bold.

I was called steve urkel when I was a kid. Tragic memories.

i saw it first on a runway naomi campbell opened for givenchy (i believe?) about 2 years ago? i actually really like this trend, if the glasses suit your facial structure. sometimes it can look really childish?

I like this trend, but it's everywhere in Singapore now, so I'm thinking i will stay away from it. I am looking for a pair of nerd specs in the shape of cat eyes though. Those would totally rock!

i've been wearing them since i was 13. that's 23 years ago LOL i'm still wearing them today. i find metal frames make me look really school-marmish. i've been seeing them a lot around lately but i think most if not all, need them. i remember reading somewhere that the population of Singapore ranked the highest in the world when it comes to myopia (short sighted).

nymphinblack, check out Paris Miki, i saw a few cat-eyed ones.

Haha...I haven't notice it was a trend yet on the street, but I do not get out much.

So Now my eye wear is in fashion...WooHoo. I bought a pair of Alain Mikli's that I am in love with!!! Very librarian lady.
Though I do not wear them just to wear glasses, I actually need them because I cant see without them. Does that count?

I think this is a good trend in frame shapes. I don't wear glasses but I hated hated hated that elongated rectangle trend. Like if I wore glasses, I would be sad mad b/c that is literally the only style sold in many eyeglass shops. Great if it looks good on you, but what if it doesn't? This Geek shape I love though! One of my friends wears these and I borrowed them for a picture just for fun and I LOVE that picture. My dad got new frames and chose this geek style in black and he is a 56 y.o. actual geek too, like he's a geek for a living and in his spare time too. They look good on him though! Maybe b/c they are actually in style for once and he's always worn someting similar to that shape.

Ive got a gorgeous pair of Calvin Kleins that fit into this category. I love how these type of glasses can instantly transform your look or outfit! Though you do need confidence to be able to pull them off.
