The beautiful thing about the sexy librarian look is it’s ability to exude an infectious flirtatiousness without being too overt.
Synonymous with a bold eyeglasses style, sexy librarian glasses were first brought to life by Marilyn Monroe in the 1950’s with her extreme cat eye eyeglasses in How To Marry A Millionaire. The sexy librarian look has since transformed into a more relaxed, day to day style with less exaggerated lines.
