Ya, I think it is a hipster thing. I don't think they look good on most people.

But now ppl are even wearing big frames without glass. It is like spitting in the faces of those of us who really can't see. ;D How dare they! Anyway, I think they are cute. I've never understood small glasses. How do you see out of them? How do you keep track of them?
seriously?

I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.
These don't look big to me. That's not what I picture when I think of big hipster frames.

I am so "not with it". My favorite frames are Silhouette rimless transitions made in Austria. They are so lightweight and have been my favorite pair, even over my Armanis.

Some guys make it cool because it's who they are...

I don't like the big glasses thing either. I prefer them to be minimalist. The thick framed, large glasses look silly on everyone I've ever seen wear them. It's like women who wear huge earrings. They are distracting and become the center of focus rather than your face itself.

Why do folks think this is attractive?

Maybe I am older and am not trend friendly, but really regret having these big glasses in the past because it obscured my face when I was younger.
A lot of us think they looked ugly then too!

They are about as attractive as an oversized hearing aid - here look at my sensory issue

Dislike. I think it's another case of women following a trend that most men dislike.

Who says men's approval shapes women's fashion choices. *rolls eyes*
