Trendspotting: Geek Glasses
In the age of silver-screen movies, the ugly girl always wore glasses. Just as gorgeously primped as the dazzling heroine, the possession of said frames instantly transformed the wearer from ‘fabulous flirt’ into ‘bumbling bookworm’. Thankfully, times have changed. Popularized by French fashion blogger, Louise Ebel of Pandora, a seemingly-unthinkable fashion phrase has been born: geek chic glasses.

Her simple spotted top, denim shorts and elegant draped jacket get a load of fierceness with a pair of black gladiator sandals. She keeps us on our toes with an unexpected pair of classic thin-framed black glasses.
Reminiscent of a whimsical Harlequin doll, EVA_SCHON mixes a diamond-pattered black and brown sweater with a pair of likeminded tights. Her itty bitty shorts, on-trend clogs, and statement jewelry make the look fashion-forward, while the unique Harlequin vibe is simultaneously carried out via funky black frames.
Style Icon extraordinaire, Coconut isn’t afraid to mix and match with different looks. Her flared purple coat, leather bag, and smart fedora hark from decades past. On the other hand, her bold shoes, neutral basics, and geek-chic glasses make this an ensemble perfect for today’s fashionista.
GabsRude puts a simplistic twist on the 80’s Madonna look. She wears a muted striped dress and seductively-simple black thigh high stockings. All our attention is drawn towards her hot pink hairbow and bold nerdy frames. Who ever thought these glasses could be so stylish?
