Sexy glasses? Yes! Glasses are no longer the “dorky” accessory that they used to be. If you’re getting new frames, you may as well make the best of it and get some frames that make you look good! Here are some tips for choosing the right frames for your face.
1. Choose For Your Face
Different glasses look different on different people depending on their face type. People with oval faces are ideal for glasses and have many options. However, wide frame options are particularly well-suited. Round faces, on the other hand can benefit from narrow and rectangular lenses. Always try on glasses before buying them, even if you intend to purchase them online. It’s hard to tell how they will look on your face shape until you try them on in person.
2. Get the Proper Fit
Glasses should look like they fit on your face. Bring a friend who you trust to be honest and use your own judgement as well to find the best glasses that are the right size. Try on many options and see which one matches the size of your face the best. Glasses that fit properly are also important in reducing eye strain, increasing comfort, and looking their best. Glasses are one thing that don’t have to be uncomfortable to look good. Speaking of…
3. Comfort is Key
Do you remember that gorgeous pair of pumps that you only worse once because thirty minutes into a cocktail party, your feet were already killing you? Imagine having to wear those shoes every single day.
You need to find a pair of glasses that are comfortable. Comfort definitely comes before style when it comes to something that you have to wear every day. Look for something that looks good on you, but also something that you can wear all day every day. You’ll probably find that being comfortable and happy can help you pull off any look. After all, 90% of the time, beauty is more about confidence than fashion.
4. Go with Your Personal Style
Some people have a tendency to enjoy basic colors and styles with a tiny bit of pizzazz. Therefore, they’ll go for a simple black rectangular frame with a pink interior—a subtle splash of fun color. Other people are flashier and would love sexy glasses with some crystals or fun design. A few people are totally wild—there are plenty of prints for you, too!
The best thing to do is match your style. You’ll be wearing these glasses every day, so you want it to share a common theme with the rest of your wardrobe and your personality.
If you are looking to add some variety to your collection, keep your eye out for stores that offer two glasses for a flat fee or other deals on two pairs of frames. Shopping at online storefronts, like Marvel Optics, can also be a good way to find sales on frames.
Glasses are fun, so treat frame shopping that way. The last piece of advice that I can give, and this is ever so important: nerd glasses are back in style! Do you dare?
