The geek chic or preppy look is huge at the moment and glasses complementing this fashionable style are bang on trend. Many celebs have been snapped donning geeky specs of late – and they certainly look all the more fabulous for it.
So with prescription specs making the celebrity headlines everywhere, why not take a leaf out of the A-list style book? Here are 5 designer ranges that boast thick-rimmed glasses:
Gok Wan’s range
Fashion guru Gok Wan is renowned for wearing heavy black glasses which exaggerate his edgy look. The sassy stylist has even taken his love of eyewear to the next level and has released his very own geek chic range. With styles from the past four decades there are plenty of frames and a whole range of colours to choose from – thanks fairy Gok mother.
The Karen Millen eyewear range is as fabulous as the label’s clothing collection. Many designs are bold in colour and have the thick frames which will help you achieve that preppy look. With the KM17s giving a nod to the swinging sixties you can even feel fabulous flaunting a retro style.
With Myleene Klass wearing Tom Fords and Tinie Tempah wearing Cutler and Gross, there’s no denying big, bold glasses are cool. Whether you want to splash your cash or save the pennies you won’t find it hard finding a pair of super trendy specs. A number of stylish frames can be found on the high street and Jasper Conran has an extensive selection of bold, black frames.
There are a whole range of funky glasses out there including Kanye West’s super sleep Prisms at around £205 a pair. Designer specs from Roxy are available in a whole range of styles but the Roxy 10s are particularly retro. Follow in the style footsteps of stars such as Justin Timberlake or David Beckham and feel like a million dollars.
Believe it or not, choosing a pair of glasses can actually be a whole lot of fun. Trying on numerous different pairs and getting a style which complements your face is definitely worthwhile. If you’re inspired by Clark Kent or want to copy Anne Hathaway, then opt for bold eyewear. French Connection also has a range of thick, yet fashionable frames, so why not see what’s out there?
If your eyes are strained or you have blurry vision be quick and book an eye test so you can wear all the latest frames.
