Geek-chic glasses were found in abundance last summer. From Kendall Jenner to Miley Cyrus, no A-lister was left out—prescription or not.
Celebrities who have been spotted wearing these preppy glasses include Kendall Jenner, the Olsen Twins, Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart, Ryan Gosling, Zooey Deschanel, Sienna Miller and Jerry Seinfeld.
While many may think that these re-imagined retro glasses may be too quirky for their taste, they do exude an air of timeless style.
Usually, such a divisive trend would peter out once it’s had its day in the sun, but 2017 continues to look strong on the round glasses front.
The outfit-changing accessory is even picking up some new arbiters of taste along on the way – Alexa Chung is one.
Round glasses frames have been the must-have eyewear accessory of 2016, and this retro-inspired trend looks set to remain popular well into 2017.
Celebrities and the public have both been wearing the trend over summer, and with autumn on its way you could be looking for your next pair of round frames to take you into winter.
As Seen on Kendall
Kendall Jenner was recently seen wearing a pair of round frames.
Opting to go for the very popular rimless frame option, Kendall carries off the vintage look with ease.
There’s many vintage-inspired round frame options out there.

Gaga For Glasses
This refined style oozes retro appeal and is just as popular with women as it is men.
Men can dress up a pair of round glasses with a tweed blazer or patterned shirt for a smart, intellectual look, or pair glasses with a jumper and denim for a more everyday style.
Women may want to pair circular glasses with a retro blouse for a formal look, or wear them casually with a thick knit sweater.
Round frame lenses are often paired with interesting looking frames.
Whether they are round thin wired ones or thick acetate frames, they are very much reminiscent of the 80s disco era.
You can also opt for semi-rimless or rimless titanium glasses, if you prefer a weightless option.
Aside from eyeglasses, you can also get yourself a pair of round shaped sunglasses which are known for their ability to accentuate facial features.
Lady GaGa is a fan of round shaped sunglasses, and is often seen wearing a pair out in public.
In a recent Instagram post she was seen wearing a pair of statement sunglasses, which completely transformed her laid back look.
