Gone is the old stereotype that people with glasses can’t be attractive.
These days, glasses can add a note of smart sophistication to almost any look. They are such a fun accessory that some people wear them just for that purpose even if they have no vision problems at all.
So if you find yourself in need of glasses, there’s no need to despair. Here is a summary of the most popular kinds of glasses, with everything you need to choose the perfect pair for you.
These glasses are extremely trendy with women right now. They are flattering to just about any face because they emphasize the structure of your cheekbones. They also go with any outfit. The unique “winged” shape of the frames are designed to accentuate your best features and make you look younger.
tle extra supportIt’s a bold style which requires a certain amount of confidence to pull off. In fact, it makes such a strong statement that you probably don’t need to wear any other accessories with it. But it’s a look that’s truly iconic, immortalized by stars like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.
Rimless glasses are the best choice (besides contact lenses) for those who really don’t want to wear glasses at all. They feel so light that you’ll be able to forget you’re even wearing them. And if you have small or delicate features, you won’t have to worry about a clunky pair of glasses hiding your face. Besides that, they are a great choice if you prefer to keep a low profile, not attracting the same attention that a bolder eyewear style might.
They are also a great choice if you feel like the frames of your glasses routinely obscure your vision while reading or driving.
Round glasses are soaring in popularity, at least partly because of their versatility. They are attractive enough to wear for a night on the town, yet still understated enough for a day at the office. They offer tremendous potential to personalize your style with different colors or looks. They’re especially flattering for anyone with a square-shaped face, because they provide a softening contrast to angular features. If you want to really look retro, try the fun geometric of rounded square or rounded rectangle glasses. The frames are round at the top while the lower rims form a square or rectangle shape.
In general, choosing frames with a shape that is the opposite of your face shape can provide the right amount of contrast to look great.
Square glasses or cat-eye glasses are flattering to an oval or diamond-shaped face; in other words, a face that is balanced with a forehead that is slightly wider than your chin. If you have a round face, in which the width of your face is just about equal to its length, square or rectangular glasses will be flattering, too.
On the other hand, if your face is square-shaped, round glasses can be perfect.
No matter who you are, there is the perfect pair of eyeglasses to add that extra touch of style to your appearance. There are endless options available so be sure to consider your face shape, choose frames that will show off your personality and don’t be afraid to shop around until you find the perfect pair that feels like it was made just for you!
