If there's one thing we didn't expect to see at Haute Couture Fashion Week, it was nerdy girl glasses. Couture is the home of ostentatious glamour, evening gowns, and sharp suits, so the laid-back look at the Didit show was a surprise. Models wore a procession of day dresses in muted shades of dove grey, brown, mustard, and beige, topped with wavy blow dries and an array of tortoiseshell glasses. The specs changed the look completely, and it got us thinking about how those of us with poor eyesight should see our latest prescription as the perfect excuse for a new statement accessory. To inspire, we've picked some of our favourite bold, chunky frames that could signal the start of a whole new look.
