Bringing Sexy (and Smart!) Back with Four Eyes

Many women feel that they get more respect at work when they wear their eyeglasses. There’s even been talk that wearing glasses in an interview gives you an edge because the perception (read: stereotype!) is that people who wear glasses “appear” more intelligent.  And let’s be honest: although perception isn’t everything, it does matter, right?!

You and I both know that you can’t just get any pair of cat eyes though. After all, eyeglasses frames have become a signature fashion accessory that complement an individual’s style. After spending some time surfing the web (and Pinterest) I sought out to find different styles of glasses online.

Below are some of my favorites!

I found these frames on  If you’re a glasses gal, check out their Facebook and Twitter pages too.

  • What is your eyeglass style?
  • What do you think about the notion that glasses can give you an edge in an interview- myth or mystery?
  • When you see someone rocking a pair of glasses, do you think they’re more intelligent?

I say:  bring your sexy and smart back ladies….and do it with four eyes!
