Embrace the Geek Chic With Thick Rimmed Glasses

Want to reinvent your look for the new year? Why not embrace the "Geek Chic" fashion trend by swapping out those rimless glasses for a thick-framed pair of killer specs.  Love 'em or hate em, the nerdy specs beloved by Alexa Chung and several other A-listers are here to stay. No longer worn only by nerdy types, thanks to the fashion pack of stylish celebs it's now cool to sport a smart or geeky look. 

Suitable for everyday wear and even special occasions, the best part about these specs is the ease with which you can customise your look and make it completely your own. For far too long, wearing glasses has been more about function than fashion - an essential accessory without much flair. But now statement-making, thick-framed specs are changing all that. Just remember: think geek, but balance it with classic pieces- like a silk pussy bow blouse and cardigan with a pencil skirt, a black sheath dress, or a white t-shirt and blazer with jeans.

Four Reasons to Embrace Geek Chic Frames

1. They are classic: Glasses with thick black rims have been a constant throughout history. While the styles have changed slightly to incorporate modern innovations and styles in eyewear, you can count on black rim glasses to retain their classic look.

2. They are lightweight: Thick rim plastic frames are often lightweight and made of materials like acetate. You can comfortably wear them the whole day without their weight pressing down on the bridge of your nose.

3. They go well with any complexion: Dark brown and black frames go well with any type of complexion. No matter your skin tone, black rim glasses will add definition to your face and look great on you.

4. They bring focus to your face: Black frame glasses are a bold statement that will definitely draw attention to your face. So emphasize your best features with a pair of statement glasses in a dark color.
