PAUSE Editorial: Bringing Spexy Back

It's Nerd Season.

The saucy librarian look is spanning the runway to social media, as corporate-core is in full swing and office attire becomes the uniform of the streets. Look no further for autumn/winter’s hottest new accessory than prescription glasses.

Being a dork has always been cool and we have the likes of Raf Simons, Jonathan Anderson and Alessandro Michelle to thank for that, being creatives who have always explored the uglier sides of fashion. With special thanks to Miu Miu, who showed us sheer cardigans and midi skirts are acceptable for the workplace, heading to work just got a whole lot sexier.

After two solid years of joggers and baggy jumpers, I’m over the moon to be adding some formality back into my wardrobe, starting with a pair of super sleek spectacles.

Covering you across all bases, find our favourites below.

– Committing to the librarian trend, Lexxola have a sleek plastic frame that comes in black, pink or yellow.

– Going full metal frames, indulge in Gentle Monster’s latest glasses frames, with blue light protection for added practicality.

Bonnie Clyde put forward a modern take on the 90s, presenting a chunky pair of glasses with transparent frames that most definitely tick all the boxes for the geek chic trend.
