Are eyeglasses the new fashion essential?
Well, yes, according to an article by the L.A. Times.
Celebrities everywhere have been spotted sporting eyewear as part of their accessory package. Instead of “hiding” their misfortunate less-than-perfect eyesight, the trend is on eyeglasses that highlight; the glasses are the look. High-end designers like Prada and Giorgi Armani have jumped on the glasses bandwagon, producing luxury products to meet the high demands of their celebrity clientele. That’s good news for those of us with poor eyesight. If you’re not one of the privileged ranks of less than 20/20, we still have good news for you—with affordable glasses and sunglasses from Global Eyeglass, you can still try on the latest celebrity look for a lot less.
According to the L.A. Times, topping the list of the must-have eyeglasses look are “retro, vintage-inspired frames, chunky tortoise shells and geometric shapes that attract rather than deflect attention.”

The famous “JT” is not only a fan of the eyeglasses trend, but he actually has founded his own eyewear company, William Rast eyewear.
