One of the hottest women’s trends today is that of the super-hot and stylish looks created by geek chic glasses. It’s ok to be one of those women who think this look only works for carefree teenagers and celebs. However, you’re wrong! When done correctly, this look can be worn by up-to-the-minute females in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and beyond. Don’t believe me? Keep reading for ideas on how you too can sport these spectacles, regardless of your age.
Geek Chic in your 20’s. While girls in their younger 20’s are generally still in college and look good whether sporting geek chic glasses or a wet paper bag, the look does become harder to pull off once you graduate. Not because college graduation zaps you of outstanding fashion sense, but because of an undeniable change in lifestyle. While some creative offices encourage, or at the very least, tolerate fashion trends, the vast majority have a business casual dress policy that extreme geek chic just doesn’t cut. However, there are still ways to don this style at more traditional jobs and offices. Instead of the exceptionally oversized lenses you sported to your college classes, look for thick framed glasses in more proper silhouettes. Also, if you like to push the proverbial envelope, you could include some colorful options or those that incorporate a classic pattern. Nothing too over-the-top, but a deep red or a tortoise print will still show off your trendsetting style while remaining appropriate for the office.
Geek Chic in your 30’s. Generally our 30’s encompass some sort of re-definition of our own personal style. Usually, this is due to extreme life changes such as time constraints children impart on us, job promotions and more. With that said, women in their 30’s still love fashion! Despite the fact that you were maybe vomited on by baby 10 minutes before you had to leave for work, you want to step out the door looking and feeling like you own the day. And yes, that can include geek chic glasses. Opt for a streamlined pair of thick frames in a neutral shade, those with an ombre effect or even a fun wood grain pattern.
Geek Chic in your 40’s. The 40’s allow for a bit of rediscovery when it comes to fashion. While the 30’s presented hectic chaos, the 40’s are usually a bit calmer and you too can easily get in on the geek chic trend. Instead of the super large rimmed glasses, look for a traditional wayfarer or rectangular shaped set of glasses with wider frames in either traditional black or brown hues, or even a fun pattern – you can easily pull off tortoise prints, plaids or even stripes. Don’t shy away from fashion trends in your 40’s, just properly embrace them to bring out your best.
Geek chic is far from just a trend for the teenagers. If you too adore the look of a wider rim, look for great shapes and colors that are perfectly appropriate for your lifestyle, regardless of your age.
