If you spent your formative years in the library rather than the playground, fear not. The fashion world intends to reek havoc on your adolescent bullies by turning literary du jour. Models sported big black rimmed glasses (the kind of frames your mother would have insisted upon during visits to the optometrist) at UnNakeD at Australian Fashion Week. Unless there was a contagious wave of shortsightedness, we don’t think the glasses are prescription. It’s not the first time we’ve seen such nerdy goggles. American Apparel’s oversized Challenger and Fabian eyeglasses have been leading the way in the dork revolt. So grab a pair and start a book club!
