Oversized retro glasses have been a big trend over the last few years. And Catherine Malandrino’s models rocked them at her fall 2011 presentation at New York Fashion Week. As a glasses-wearing girl, I have a complete love/hate relationship with this trend. Pros: glasses are cute and make such a fun accessory, and it’s nice to know that something you need on a daily basis is deemed “cool.” Plus, how cute are The Girls with Glasses?! Also, glasses are the handiest BFF, hiding dark circles after long nights at the computer out partying and cleverly masking pesky crow’s feet. Cons: the big glasses trend is starting to feel so overdone, and often times the glasses of choice give their owners the vibe that they probably hang out by playgrounds in curtained vans, beckoning little children over with Tootsie Pops, if you know what I’m saying. I’d love to know your thoughts. Do you like to make a spectacle of yourself (sorry, couldn’t resist!)?
p.s. How much does the model on the right look like darling Rue editor Anne Sage?!
