Geek chic, brow line, and 1920s inspired round lens glasses have all been embraced by the modern day hipster. Paired with a trendy hat, brown leather Derbies and unkempt beard, a pair of specs (whether you have a vision impairment or not) are vital for channeling that hipster vibe.
It’s official; buying glasses without a prescription is socially acceptable, as long as you like vegan food, drink flat whites, and own an analog camera. This year, hipster eyewear is all about the square frames. Rectangular & square shaped lenses frame the face and give you a bold, nerdy appearance that’s all the rage.
Here are some of our favourite hipster looks for 2017.
Booth & Bruce Design 903
These unisex Booth & Bruce Design 903 prescription glasses are made to stand out. Available in 6 trendy colours, you can choose any pair to match with your wardrobe. A heavy set nose bridge draws the lenses together to frame your face and create a confident geometric look. Thick temple arms give your outfit a bold, contemporary feel.
These Diesel DL5062 glasses are sophisticated and simple.
All black frames are the easiest way to pull off the geek chic hipster look, and the clean lines on this design give you seamless style. Lightweight to wear, the DL5062 also comes with a thick nose bridge to help frame the face.
