Do Glasses Make You Look Smarter?

Probably a stupid question, but I'm a relatively good looking guy and I always wonder if people think I'm dumb (even though I have a solid background in terms of college and jobs).

Would wearing glasses help with perception when meeting clients and at interviews for new jobs (I'm also not very eloquent at times, have a somewhat low middle-class background)? As dumb as that sounds

I would suggest Oliver Peoples glasses and a penchant for Valentino suits. The business card should be bone with raised lettering.

Being unsure of whether you look smart makes you look not smart.

I work in a very low testosterone place and am probably the only 'all-american' looking guy in my entire building. I actually wear my reading glasses to meetings and around the building often because it tones down my look and makes me look softer/smarter/whatever you want to call it. If I worked literally probably anywhere else I wouldn't care but take it for what it's worth.

I think it totally depends on your face shape, and what the glasses do to your face.

Some people look better with glasses, some people don't. 100% dependent per person

I've never felt that way (also a current UG). I have Oliver Peoples glasses which compliment my facial structure (pronounced jaw and angular face) and have been told by randoms that my glasses 'suit me' for whatever that's worth.

Keep them on in interviews if they suit you.
