This time, there’s something for all of you with prescription eyeglasses, as well as those who don’t need them, because fashion dictates “nerd” glasses. It’s another model that’s borrowed from menswear, yet looks very sexy on a woman, just like a men’s white shirt with lace lingerie. You’ll recognise them by their distinct shape, because they are a bit larger, usually with a thicker frame, reminiscent of the 50’s secretaries; a look, which we instantly associate with red lipstick and an updo. Just your basic contrasts.
Golden colour is popular right now, so thin golden frames are an interesting choice, which double as a statement fashion accessory. You can also find many patterns, where tortoise shell and animal prints take the reign. These look best on brunettes, and those of you who prefer natural earth tones. Thickness of the frames depends on the shape of your face: if it’s round, it’s better to opt for smaller and less noticeable frames. All the better, if you choose an updo, because a high ponytail or bun ensure the glasses stand out.
Fashion aficionadas and It girls wear “nerd” glasses, even if they don’t have a prescription. Personally, I am not one to do that, because I feel like, one way or another, prescription will come with age. So, if you are not quite there yet, you can opt for “nerd” shaped sunglasses and get the same result. Style them with a burgundy matte lipstick and an abundant application of mascara for the perfect look. Nude hues, which are always in and flattering, can be just as interesting. Some face shapes can get away with cat shaped frames, with a lift in the outer corners. These can be in a contrasting colour, in which case opt for brown, because black can seem too harsh.
“Nerd” glasses are just a bit odd, the perfect amount of retro, and very fashionable. Personally, I love the fact it’s a piece that originates from the men’s world and it’s precisely why it’s so very sexy.
