There are several ways you can update your image if you feel like having a change, one of which is to get yourself a pair of glasses. People always look cool with trendy shades when they are out and about in sunny weather, but let’s face it, you can’t always rely on the sun coming out. But that’s not a problem these days because you can buy non prescription glasses which look just like standard corrective eyeglasses, except that they have clear lenses instead.
The last few years has seen a definite trend towards the geek chic, or nerdy look. It has become a sexy style recently, mainly because of the number of high profile celebrities and Hollywood movie stars getting snapped by photographers at red carpet events sporting thick-rimmed retro glasses. And hey, if it’s good enough for those guys, and they look just great, then it’s good enough for the rest of us, right?
It’s definitely the retro nerd look that is taking off, with the boys and girls going for the Buddy Holly style when buying clear lens glasses. And if you’ve never heard of Buddy Holly, think Clark Kent instead from the Superman movies!
The awesome thing about switching to geek chic is that you don’t have to empty your bank account. You can get hold of a pair of cheap non prescription glasses from Amazon, often for less than ten bucks, and they look cool. At that price, if you get bored of them, you can either go for a different style and build up a collection to wear depending on your mood, or give them away to friends.
The really popular styles on Amazon are the Wayfarer style Retro Nerd glasses, but there are also some more discreet styles that look a bit more up to date, if you’re not into the whole retro thing. They are still fake glasses though with clear plastic lenses. One of the nice features with many of them is that although they are not vision-correcting glasses, they are still coated with a protective layer to shield your eyes from ultraviolet rays. So there’s an excuse to wear them, and if anyone starts questioning why you suddenly started wearing glasses you can say they’re to protect your eyesight!
So for a cheap way to update your look, nerding it up with a pair of trendy fake glasses is an eye-catching way to go, and will probably be cheaper than getting a new hairdo!
