Trending: Hipster eyeglasses are still a thing

Trend watchers may have noticed that wearing eyeglasses is fashionable again.
Thank hipsters and the new popular geek culture for making it cool a few years ago to skip laser surgery and contact lenses and embrace the four-eye look again.

Some of the celeb moms we’ve regularly featured here like Reese WitherspoonCourtney Cox and Zoe Saldana have been spotted out and about and on red carpets in eyeglasses. Mom-to-be Zoe Deschanel looked smart and chic in a pair of dark-rimmed glasses recently as well.
Men too are wearing glasses, even though they need them or not, following the moves of the guys who seem to stay one step ahead of all the tech gadgets.  The numbers support the theory, as World News Stand notes,

The prevalence of eyeglasses, like other hipster fads, likely became such a popular trend because of the economic and thrifty value of glasses — especially compared to things like contact lenses and LASIK surgery. Eyeglass sales, according to Euromonitor, are currently at their highest point in the past 15 year

I recently discovered that my perfect 20/20 eyesight is not so perfect anymore. I blame old age. Thus, I had to get an eyeglasses prescription, so it was awesome to learn that they are trending. Perfect! I am accidentally in style! Ha!

And this trend is a perfect way for those who want to stay hip and current while pregnant to do so. There is a perfect pair for everyone.
