Though many people are reluctant to start wearing glasses when their vision starts going bad, they are a fantastic accessory to complete your look. There are different types of frames as well as shapes of lenses that add to your unique style.
Every outfit can use an accessory and the ones that get the most attention are your glasses. In fact, it has been trendy for a while for models and actors to sport some stylish eyewear when they don’t even need to wear glasses.
In this article, we will go over several ways that you can use your eyeglasses to make a fashion statement.
A very interesting way to wear glasses is by choosing transparent glasses for the frames. Not only do they make a bold statement, but they will go with just about every face shape and complexion.
You will have a lot of choice when it comes to the shape of the frames and lenses while still not competing with your outfit, hairstyle or even skin color. At the same time, they are unique and make for a great conversation starter.
The trend hasn’t exactly hit yet, so when you start wearing clear frames, you will certainly be ahead of the curve. In fact, with the right flair, you may be the one to ignite a fad!
A timeless classic for eyeglass styles is the tortoise shell frame. It has been popular for decades, but at the same time is not so overdone as a trend. They can still make a statement since not everybody is wearing them.
Men and women can both use these frames with adjustments to the shape and color. For instance, men might want rounded lenses with frames that are not too thick. Though it may sound understated, the style is bold and unmistakable.
Women have a bit more leeway when it comes to choice with tortoise shell frames. They can go really bold with thick rimmed glasses, or even use various shapes for the lens.
Admittedly, cat eye shaped frames are not going to work for every face shape. And you have to have a certain personality to pull them off. But, if your face shape is somewhat diamond or triangular then these will certainly work.
You’ll put off a somewhat flirty vibe so be ready to back up the look if your personality is outgoing and even a bit edgy. Rockabilly types and those that enjoy some retro style will definitely find these a perfect match to their lifestyle and personality.
Circular lenses are what people expect with glasses. You can jazz things up a bit by going for something not quite typical by using squares, pentagons or even stars if you are really up for it.
If you have a round face, then you can pretty much choose any shape you like and it will look good. Go with a thick frame to accentuate the shape of the lens for maximum effect.
