The Whole Geek Chic Thing Is Back Again - And Glasses Are Now Cool

According to the Wall Street Journal, wearing glasses is cool again. Now, if I were one who had to wear them full-time I would be somewhat offended by this latest fad. Last I checked, wasn’t visual impairment a disability? So therefore, isn’t wearing glasses when you don’t need them a tad bit mocking? And if not mocking, perhaps just plain silly? I can’t help but anticipate a conversation between friends:

Friend: Oh, I didn’t know you wore glasses.

Glasses Wearing Fashion Victim: Oh, I don’t. Well, I do. But I don’t. It’s complicated. I don’t want to talk about it.

Friend: Uh. Okay.

Hmm. It is confusing. For all of us. But if the style bug has already bitten and you’re eager to partake in the latest trend, here are a few fashions you might want to check out. You can order online with either single lenses or as frames only and bring them to your local LensCrafters where they will fit you will clear lenses (and try not to laugh).
