Ive seen a lot of rap/hip hop artists going for this look recently. I remember Jay-Z was on the Jonathan Ross show a while back and he had the whole glasses thing going on.

geek glasses
I saw this girl at Bryant Park rockin the oversized geek glasses. She was a model casting director.

Hair pulled back tightly into an oversized bun on top of her head. Black, open back, form fitting dress, and chunky balenciaga high heels. Red lips and attitude.

She could pull it off but I don't think I could.

I just got a pair of vintage Shuron Freeways! I've been wearing them around the house, they are so cute! But I have to still take them to get the Rx lenses put in.

I just realized everybody is wearing those glasses, everywhere Which makes them look like a trend wave to me
I don't want to say they look bad but it's just you see them everywhere! Too much

teaming them with a fur is just a wonderful style (as per Michael Kors)

I quite like this, but as others said, only on specific people... Nearly all the people I've seen wearing this end up coming across as desperate hipsters. I suppose it takes a certain kind of face to be able to wear them without looking exaggerated or ridiculous.

I have it in the back of my mind to get a vintage pair of thick horn-rim glasses and get lenses put in, if I find that I look good in these... I suppose it's a good reason to finally get my eyes tested again, after not wearing my glasses for years :p

So people have been asking me about my glasses so I took some pictures and included the photo from lenscrafters of the frames I have. They are D&G. I think that the first thing my mom said when I showed up was "Did you steal elvis costello's glasses?" qualifies them as geek glasses. I love them and they are prescription so I dont feel super trendy wearing them.

I love seeing them on people who can actually rock them. I've tried, and failed imo.

I got a new pair recently from Klik. I love them, they're a perfect fit. The frames are green on the outside and maroon on the inside.
