Glasses & Sunglasses Define Your Style

If you’re looking to change up your style, glasses have a huge impact on your overall look, and the outcomes depend on a few key elements. Below, you can find how to use glasses to bring out the new you.

Size matters

Glasses have different frames, and their size and thickness can completely change your style. What you should consider here is whether you want to get a completely new style or make glasses a statement piece. If you want a subtler look, search for glasses with thin frames or even rimless models. These glasses will frame your face nicely, but blend better in the overall style rather than standing out. Large plastic frames are trendy right now, but you should keep in mind that your glasses will compete with the rest of your look. If you want your glasses to draw more attention to them, go for round models with over-sized frames.

Think about the details

Glasses that have many little details will greatly impact the overall style and your aesthetic. Traditional simple frames are as good as always, but if you want to express a glam factor or a sporty style, consider details like marbling, stripes, sparkles, or gradation. Each detail is important in how extravagant or traditional you want to look. Make sure you keep in mind the dress code of your workplace. A cool pair of glasses can add more to your business attire, and a sparkling pair of glasses will be perfect for after-hours if you want to get wild with your look.

Think of iconic styles

Glasses have been around for centuries, and some styles are associated with certain eras. Playing with different time periods can add much to your style, from a free-spirited to distinguished look, depending on which glasses you choose.

Glasses with basic black or tortoiseshell will create a more polished look. Cat’s eye or brow line glasses were popular in ‘50s and ‘60s. and retain their retro vibe even now. Rimless glasses also have been popular for many years because the lack of frame creates  a modern look.

For anyone who wants something more unexpected, ultra-round glasses made a comeback this year, creating a “Lennon” look. Round metal frames add an artistic and intellectual fair, and people will definitely notice the glasses. But the overall style is minimal, so round glasses can work with many styles. From flower chic to elbow patches and professional tweed, these glasses are really easy to wear and mix with other styles.

Now you have the idea of how a pair of glasses (or sunglasses) can define your personal style and create a new look. Remember to take different aspects into consideration, and how you want your glasses to fit in or stand out. Whether you need an accent piece or something to blend in, there is a pair out there waiting for you to define a new style.
