I love the look of big, square glasses. My problem is — I’m not even close to needing glasses. What are your thoughts on wearing glasses without needing them? Is it ok to wear the frames and treat them just as another accessory?

  1. hmmm, i think it’s a touch weird to wear them without needing them (but that’s bc I need them!) But i can see how that is changing these days. Glasses really have become so much cooler than they were when my 12 year old self cried for days after being told I had to start wearing them.

  2. although I wear glasses because my life depends on them ( seriously, i am SO blind) I think glasses are completely acceptable accessories! stop by claires, icing, or f21 and pick up a cute pair :-) i’ve been wanting to take the plunge and just buy myself prescription nerd glasses :-)


  3. i say do it! i used to “wear” glasses before needing them (i also used to put paperclips in my mouth before needing braces…strange, i know) but now i actually do need glasses and have not been loving my current ones. i love these bigger, “nerdier” frames – thanks for the inspiration to upgrade!

  4. i love the look. i actually need and have glasses but never wear them so i can’t even justify buying and wearing glasses that don’t have a prescription. but some friends wear big frames all the time and it looks absolutely divine!

  5. I am blind as a bat, so I definitely wear my glasses as an accessory and am so happy that they are now “stylish.” I love the look of big square glasses, but they just don’t look right on me! I have tried them on 1,000 times thinking they will look different each time. Never works…
