When it comes to style and fashion, we live in a society full of changing trends. From hairstyles to clothing, language and lifestyle, it seems that we are lead by media and the fashion authorities on what is “hip,” popular or “in.” The same can be true in the optical industry.

One style that has made its comeback in the optical industry is “geek chic” eyewear. For those of you that are unaware of this style, its defining trait is dark, thick plastic glasses that are usually, but not limited to being larger in size.

Geek chic eyewear has been spotted on some of the most popular celebrities such as David Beckham, Justin Timberlake, and even Lebron James. Geek chic also seems to be appealing to the younger generating, as they are seeing celebrities and musicians trying out the style.

What do you think of the geek chic trend? Is it for you?
