The Geek Glasses That Have Spiked by 200%, Thanks to Gigi and Emily

You know how the geek chic glasses trend really took off this year? Well, while the look was predominantly all about more aviator-shaped glasses (see Topshop and Saint Laurent), there's a new style and brand that's gaining popularity. Garrett Leight, an L.A.-based label, has recently seen a massive 200% increase for its more rounded framed glasses. One likely theory to why they've become so in-demand? They've been chosen by the A-list, as both Gigi Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski have been wearing the brand's wire frames.

What's even more interesting is that these glasses were originally inspired by the vintage NHS circular silhouettes, which used to be given out on prescription. Who knows, maybe plaster casts will be the next big thing for fashion (we jest, but stranger things have happened). Want to see the glasses in action? Keep scrolling to see Emily and Gigi wearing them, plus you can find out where to shop them right now.
