Why do people wear glasses for fashion?
It does seem strange. On the surface, why would anyone choose to wear something designed to help with a medical impairment? There are, after all, plenty of people who need glasses and wish they could do without them.
The reason? They’ve become a fashion accessory. Well-chosen glasses make a bold statement and can completely transform your look. Large, prominent glasses are generally the most popular for accessorising and consequently there’s no missing them.
Since the ‘geek chic’ trend, glasses have been a big part of the fashion world. The Big Bang Theory and its incredible popularity helped the image along and before we knew it, geek had become quirky-cool. Now, you’ll see bespectacled models and celebrities on runways, red carpets and on the covers of magazines.
Is it a good thing?
It’s a GREAT thing! Don’t you think it’s fantastic that what is, in reality, an impairment has been normalised to such an extent that glasses are now fashionable? Instead of smirks and sniggers, glasses-wearers now attract envious glances and compliments on their well-chosen specs.
Some might argue that the popularity of ‘fake’ glasses trivialises genuine need for vision correction, but I don’t think that’s the case. People still understand the issues faced by the visually impaired, it’s just that now the remedy isn’t stigmatised.
In fact, the rise in demand for fashionable glasses has led to increased choice and increasingly stylish designs. Whether you need glasses or simply want them, that’s got to be good news.
