We’ve all heard the term “sexy librarian” and what instantly comes to mind? Bold, thick framed sexy librarian glasses. The great thing about the sexy librarian look is that there is a flirtatiousness to it without really having to try.
The sexy librarian persona was first introduced by Marilyn Monroe in the 1950’s movie How to Marry a Millionaire with her sexy librarian glasses featuring an extreme cat eye design. Nowadays, the sexy librarian look has re-invented itself to be more relaxed for day to day wear with less exaggerated lines.

If you’re like Mackenzie and can’t get enough of the sexy librarian look, here are some tips on what to look for when it comes to picking out the perfect sexy librarian glasses.
