Geek-chic glasses were everywhere a few years ago. From Kendall Jenner to Emily Ratajkowski, no A-lister was okay with being left out—prescription or not. Usually, we'd expect such a divisive trend to peter out once it hits mass adoption, but 2020 continues to look strong on the nana-inspired-frames front. The outfit-changing accessory is even picking up some new arbiters of taste along the way (Alexa Chung, for starters) as well as surprising high-street supporters (Zara is 100% in).
This is proof that the idea of geek chic never really goes away. It just constantly reinvents itself. These frames take inspiration from the likes of '70s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter. However, some girls are taking the idea a step further with thick acetate glasses in different pastel colours, from the likes of Chloé and Cutler and Gross. There's even a move away from the classic aviator frames to more rounded shapes, the kind Deirdre Barlow would be proud of. If you're wondering how to style them, look no further than these A-listers and influencers who casually fling a pair on with any ensemble.
