Just like a statement necklace or bold wristwatch, a sharp pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses can help you get noticed in a good way. For starters, you’ll want to work with your face shape. A great pair of glasses can boost your appearance and confidence at the same time.
Want to know what’s trending this season in terms of styles? We’ve got you covered!
Clear frames: This style is far from boring. They can add a subtle element of personality and style. Equal parts modern and retro, they are appropriate for nearly any age. And the best part is that because they are neutral, you can match them to anything in your wardrobe.
Round frames: To rock this style, keep the frames on the thinner side and contrast the roundness with sharper details like pointy corners on the edges of the rims. This style is ideal for those wanting to soften sharp features like a square face or a prominent jaw.
Cat’s eye: While some retro styles have run their course, this one seems to have staying power as a timeless choice. This style works for a variety of face shapes. Plus, there are many choices available. To double your impact, try on an over-sized pair for size. Just be sure your jewelry is toned down if you go this route, or else risk looking too “busy.”
Wired rim: Wired are classy without the added bulk that comes with other styles. This look was hot on multiple designer runway shows, so you know it’s a sure bet.
Color: Don’t be afraid to show some attitude with color, in both frames and lenses. Frame colors like green and blue flatter most skin tones. You don’t have to go the plastic route either. Designers are making wood and metal. Don’t be shy when it comes to lenses. Red is having a moment this fall, according to experts.
Though style recycles itself and seems to come back around, prescription eyewear usually changes in 5 and 10 year cycles, so don’t get too caught up on form over function.
Another caveat: don’t lose sight of the reason you’re wearing prescription glasses in the first place.
