Looking good in glasses goes beyond just wearing the most expensive or trendiest frames. It involves choosing eyewear that fits your face, compliments your style and enhances your vision. Whether you’re new to wearing glasses, want to try a fresh look or need advice on frame styles, we’ve got you covered. Here are some do’s and don’ts when it comes to the latest eyewear fashion.
Do’s of Eyewear Fashion
Choosing the perfect pair of glasses can be an exciting task. Here are some handy tips to keep in mind:
- Pick Frames That Compliment Your Face Shape: Each face shape has specific styles that accentuate its best features. For instance, round faces look great in square or rectangular frames, while heart-shaped faces can balance their features with bottom-heavy frames.
- Consider Your Skin Tone: The color of your frames should complement your skin tone. Dark or olive skin tones might look good with lighter, brighter colors, while fair skin may be flattered by darker, rich hues.
- Select the Right Frame Material: From plastic and metal to titanium and acetate, the frame material can significantly influence your comfort, durability and style. Lightweight frame options are often more comfortable, especially for long periods of wear.

Don’ts of Eyewear Fashion
While there’s no wrong way to express your style, there are a few common mistakes you might want to avoid when selecting eyewear:
- Don’t Overlook Your Lifestyle: Your glasses should suit your lifestyle and daily activities. If you’re sporty or outdoorsy, consider durable materials and lens options like transition lenses or UV protection.
- Don’t Ignore Your Prescription: Aesthetic appeal is essential, but remember the primary purpose of glasses is to correct vision. Ensure your frames can accommodate your prescription, be it single-vision, bifocal, or progressive lenses.
- Don’t Stick to Just One Pair: Who says you can only have one pair of glasses? It’s not just about vision correction; glasses are a fashion accessory too. Feel free to have different frames for different occasions or outfits.
A Final Word of Advice
Ultimately, the best glasses for you are the ones that you feel good in and enhance your vision. Don’t be afraid to try out different styles or ask for opinions. Remember, glasses are an extension of your personality and a reflection of your style. So, choose wisely and confidently step out flaunting your unique eyewear fashion.
