Maybe it’s the piles of school work or an instinctual desire to spend cooler days curled up with a good book, but lately, I am loving the look of cute girls in nerdy glasses. They’re schoolish. They’re stylish. And both spec and wearer are the epitome of cool.

The thick black frames have been around forever, and we’ve all seen them on celebs like Zooey Deschanel and Demi Moore. Lately, even the less fashion-forward have been sporting them, like New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg. And why not? Many of us have to wear glasses every day. If we’re going to have to sport frames, they might as well be fashion statements.

What do you think? Have you tried this look? And do nerd glasses make you feel smarter…or sexier?

Pretty sight found here.

P.S. — My husband’s military issue glasses (long known as BCG’s or birth control goggles!) have just undergone a major fashion rehab.  The horrible, pale brown coke-bottle frames they were long issued are now replaced by a sleek black frame. They remind me of the Warby Parker Huxley. I can’t wait to steal them for myself!
