As your Chichester opticians we love specs. So, as you can imagine we were delighted to read an article in The Guardian, that heralded a recent study. It’s officially been determined that needing to wear glasses is associated with higher levels of intelligence.
Well, we knew that you all had to be pretty smart to choose us as your opticians, and with Geek-Chic being the eyewear trend that always seems to be in fashion we wanted to share our favourite frames that will help you get the look!
The key to nailing Geek-Chic is to go for bold, statement eyewear. Choose large, thick frames in dark, horn or matte colours and textures.
