These Aren’t the Glasses of Yesteryear

Remember when you were young and needed glasses? Surely, like me, you moved to contacts as soon as possible since the frames on offer were plain, boring, and sometimes hideous. However, you would be surprised to know that glasses are very in right now, and that those who have worn contacts for years are coming back on the spectacle bandwagon.

Don’t believe me? Look at this article in The Guardian about a former nerd who is now learning to embrace being bespectacled again. On catwalks everywhere, there are models wearing modern glasses in a plethora of styles and colors, all looking impossibly cool and hip. Apparently, sales of glasses has exploded in recent years, with several websites like Pinterest popping up that allow the average person to have glasses at a very reasonable price.

Luxottica, the world’s biggest eyewear company, saw an 18% increase in sales in 2014–need I say more? And there are many styles to choose from. Even cat eye glasses are in at the moment, plus round vintage style specs and those hearkening back to the 1980’s. Anything goes in our ultra modern world, and the styles of glasses even going back to the 1930’s have a place in our culture.
