Glasses Style Star: Zooey Deschanel

10:32 PM

I know I'm not the only one out there with a major style crush on Zooey Deschanel.  To other girls, she has come to epitomize the dorky, quirky, cool fashion we all want to effortlessly achieve.  In her new Fox show, New Girl, her character Jess has really embraced the geek chic trend, complete with glasses of course.  This trend towards large, bold plastic or metal frames is still going strong for both men and women.  For more information and style advice, check out this post.

The frames Zooey is making so popular as Jess are the above Oliver Peoples called "Wacks." Apparently Zooey has long been a face for Oliver Peoples designs, even having her own sunglasses line.

Wanting to copy her geek chic look?  Aim for thick plastics in dark colors or tortoise shell.  For the appropriate fit, the vertical depth of the glasses (distance from top to bottom of the frame, also called the B size) should be slightly deeper than traditional.  These glasses should look almost too big for your eyes, but fit correctly along the temples and still have your eye correctly centered along the horizontal axis. Any optician should be able to make sure the fit is appropriate for proper vision and comfort!

Robert Marc 261 in Jungle Tortoise is a great choice for this trend!
