No prescription necessary to wear this trendy eyewear. This season, it’s all about geek chic frames (just ask Style Editor Allison Kaplan!), a girl’s coolest accessory that flatters your face and adds a stylish (and yes, slightly hipster) element to your look.
We’re loving how these fashionable women wear their glasses–black, slightly oversized pairs that accentuate their features without being too overpowering (we think the woman who started it all, miss Jenna Lyons, looks particularly chic). Wear them with a dress and heels; a snug sweater, jeans, and a pair of ballet flats; or with a chambray button-down, olive cargo pants, and cognac-colored oxfords.
If you’re wary about trying this trend, check out Refinery29′s guide to framing your face. Whether it’s shaped like an oval, heart, diamond, or square, there are the perfect specs for you. Urban Outfitters has tons of cute and affordable options, while Warby Parker has a slightly more expensive yet extensive collection. They even let you take home 5 pairs for 5 days (for free!) to let you decide which glasses you love best.
