I have worn glasses since the second grade so by the time I was in middle school I had really learned how to work them into my fashion identity. I started wearing thicker frames that had a vintage feel to them. My current pair is from Moscot, a company who has been representing classically "geek chic" frames long before the trend ever happened, so it kind of drives me nuts when everyone asks if they are Raybans. With "geekier" glasses frames being overly popular at the moment, going with a truly vintage pair is the best way to make the look your own. I know I'm going this route next time I visit the eye doctor!
