Latest trends are telling us: it's cool to be lame, and lame to be cool. "Geek chic" has caught on, and geek glasses are anticipated to be one of the hottest trends of 2011!
This is quite an occasion, as "geeks" have never before exactly been known for their popularity. Alone the word "geek" itself comes from old-German, meaning a "freak" who was put on display in a circus, and whilst the meaning has of course changed substantially, even today it retains some of this derision, often used to denote an outsider, usually a bookworm, who doesn't try too hard to fit in or to adapt to society.
In recent years, however, the contempt and ridicule of the past has been replaced by a certain level of envy, as the geek-look has changed from something to be avoided at all costs to becoming something to strive for, as even celebrities like David Beckham, Johnny Depp and Justin Timberlake have been known to adopt the style. The trend certainly has Woody Allen a lot to thank for, as he has been showing off his horn-rimmed glasses for 50 years, helping to turn an object of embarrassment into the latest mode, now ever increasingly seen being sported by those with a keen sense for latest fashion.
The retro appeal has turned geek glasses, especially known for their oversize and traditionally black frames, into a very popular fashion accessory that is bound to be popular for a long while yet. Presently, we can see the trend itself now evolving, making coloured frames a very stylish option this season.
