I think it really depends on where you live!! I live & go to school in North Carolina, and I've seen more than a few people wear geek-chic glasses. I for one have prescriptions that are very fun & nerdy-looking. My dad called me elvis (costello) when he saw them for the first time. I love them!!

Re: "Geek" Glasses/Geek Chic. what's your opinion?

My boyfriend wears them, he went to the place he shops for his glasses, picked out a pair of plain black Ray Ban wayfarers and asked them to put his prescription lenses in them. I HATED them at first, I thought they looked ridiculous but now I love them! This is me wearing them, wishing I could also pull them off. I think they're cute, but they just don't go with what I usually wear/my style. BTW we live near NYC, I think its easier to pull these off around here...

bahaha XD that's awesome. unfortunately on a college campus people tend to dress down a lot...i don't really care though, I've worn them out in public more than a few times. To class though, we'll see about that :X I should be an LA major instead of a business one (I wanted to do English...but bahhh. Oh well) I need to wear makeup though or else my eyes just get lost in them for some reason!

I looove my glasses! I thought of them as 'geek chic' when I bought them... Fiance says they're porn glasses.

Typical man.

amberelizabeth, hahahah of course, just like a man to think of those glasses in that way...but hey they do look hot on you!

I've discovered that I can't wear my glasses without wearing pretty heavy eyemakeup, because my eyes look too alien-like if I just wear them plain :/ odd, I know, but the lenses on my glasses aren't flat, and it kind of makes my eyes look funny without makeup on...

I SO love them. I wanted a pair of my Ray Ban Wayfarer as optical glasses, but for some freakin reason they couldn't do it. So now I gotta pair of Diesel glasses. They don't suck, but they're not what I'd looove to have.

Re: "Geek" Glasses/Geek Chic. what's your opinion?

I think they're fine as long as 1) They have lenses, and 2) They have a prescription

I think that the trend is okay, there are much worse trends right now. It hasn't caught on around here though.

Aw that's not cool, that's exactly what my boyfriend had done at lenscrafters, I wonder why they said they couldn't do it?

everybody in new york has those "geek" glasses even those who dont even wear glasses. personally, its a trend that people follow and i think the next thing is suspenders haha. here in tokyo, i see a lot of fashion to die for and ive seen ray bans on men but not as prescription glasses.

Re: "Geek" Glasses/Geek Chic. what's your opinion?

I have a huge thing for geeky guys. I think big nerdy glass, and most glasses in general (let's not be silly, I'm not into the pedophile glasses) are sexy.

But I want a hardcore, born a nerd, die a nerd type. Not someone who does it because it's trendy. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, but I like my nerds authentic.
