Glasses epitomize a smart trend in bookworm fashion. Gone are the days of four-eyed fashionistas being regarded as "geeks." Hip frame designs and flashy colors allow you to express your sense of style without looking like a bore. For a black-tie party, ditch your uncomfortable contact lenses and sport your stylish frames with a well-suited cocktail dress. Bold styles offer a self-assured look, turning the heads of intelligent male suitors.
Nothing screams "bookworm" like retro plaids. Once reserved for conservative couture, plaids resurface for dressy occasions. Button-down plaid dresses with form-fitting pencil skirts flaunt sensuality as much as their revealing lace counterparts. Don't shy away from a style that exemplifies your intelligent look. Sport retro plaids with your eyeglasses and dive into a sexy fashion resurgence.
Corduroy seems a heavy fabric choice for dressy nightlife fashion. But in a backless cocktail version, it suits the four-eyed wearer well. Tailored corduroy ensembles seem "put together" from the front, while the flip side reveals a provocative back. Walk up to a conversation looking like your modest self, then dazzle them with sexiness as you turn and walk away.
Bold Prints and Colors
Do your tortoise-framed glasses crimp your wardrobe choices? Think outside of the box and accentuate them with bold prints and colors. Geometric and bubble prints, adopted from the '60s, lend spice to otherwise boring attire. While everyone else follows suit in black dresses with little life, jazz up the party with flower-child fashion dazzlers.
If cutting-edge styles have you yearning for a night on the couch, you can always wear what's tried and true. The little black dress still works for any formal engagement. But, don't run out the door without some "pop" to top off your look. Choose your most colorful frames with stylish embellishments and accessorize like the professionals.
