The Geek Chic Resurgence
The geek chic phenomenon, also known as “librariancore” and various other hashtagable alternatives, has made a remarkable comeback. Drawing inspiration from the late 1990s and early 2010s, this style embraces snug knit cardigans, colorful stockings, and, most notably, reading glasses. What was once a fashion trend associated with boxy frames has evolved into a contemporary look, blending workwear with preppy academia aesthetics.
Rectangle Glasses: A Modern Classic
Zenni’s Rectangle Glasses, a part of our Valentine’s Day collection, have become a symbol of the sleek and sexy approach to eyewear. These full-rimmed acetate frames, complete with spring hinges for added comfort, exude both smartness and elegance.
