Le Geek, C’est Chic: Bold Frames are Fashion Favorites

Elizabeth and James just launched their cool-girl spectacles, Super Sunglasses has the Ciccio frame in seemingly endless colorways, and even t-shirt label LNA Los Angeles did an ’80s-inspired iteration. Geek-chic fashion glasses are a big story this season, and they’re showing up on everyone from Chloë Sevigny to Alexa Chung, Anne Hathaway to Kirsten Dunst. The Man Repeller Leandra Medine has dubbed them BCGs (Birth Control Glasses), and French blogger Pandora has made a signature of her big specs and blunt bangs.

It can be a tough trend to pull off, but can give a look that little something extra it needs. Will you try it? And, the bigger question, will we look back at pictures of ourselves ten years from now and wonder what we were thinking?
