Vintage geek goggle glasses for men and women were spotted on the runways of Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Ralph Lauren, Zegna and Lanvin. Lady Gaga’s round glasses are getting quite a bit of attention too.

Credit crunch got you down? You can still go for the John Lennon look with cheap round glasses; budget-friendly sun goggles are available everywhere from Urban Outfitters to Fred Flare.
