I don’t care what anyone says, nerdy glasses are cute. Even better- the geeks behind them. Retailers such as Ray-Ban, Lens Crafters and Coastal offer incredibly trendy frames, likely inspired by some of these geeks. I picked out the best nerds out there, and found similar frames you can make your own.
1. Clark Kent and his Nerdy Glasses (the original, not that doofus from the CW)
I don’t care what anyone says, the original Clark Kent was a sexy beast. I’ve always liked Superman, I cheer for the underdog and I like the color red. However, it is my humble opinion that Spiderman could easily kick Superman’s ass by injecting kryptonite into his webs. Whatever- look like Clark Kent with these awesome glasses:
2. Tina Fey and her Cat-Eyed Glasses (30 Rock and beyond)
Whoever claims not to like Tina Fey is totally lying. Not only is she an amazing writer, she’s hilarious. If you haven’t seen her in 30 Rock, you need to press pause on your life for at least three days and watch it in it’s entirety. Nothing says geek like Liz Lemon’s adorable glasses.
3. Gregory Peck and his round framed, nerdy glasses in To Kill A Mockingbird
Out of all the movies that have been transformed into horrible remakes, I’m mostly glad that TKAM has not been. I mean c’mon, no one is ever going to beat Gregory Peck as the intellectual Atticus Finch.
He’s the definition of the perfect intellectual.
4. Nathan Fillion and his thin rimmed glasses in Castle, Firefly
Is Nathan Fillion a geek? Not sure, but he’s super cute. I’ve never seen him in Firefly, but I absolutely love him in Castle. A charming, funny, writer with a huge heart? Yes!
5. Ducky and his infamous nerdy glasses from Pretty in Pink
Ducky, aka a young Jon Cryer, from Pretty in Pink is one of the most underrated romantic characters ever. Honest, kind, and fully embraces his geekiness. I still can’t believe she picked the rich kid. I mean c’mon…….really? Get it together, Ringwald.
Which nerdy glasses and nerd is your favorite?
