Eye Glasses – Your Most Important Fashion Accessory?
Prescription eyeglasses, once associated with nerdy schoolchildren, are now considered fashion accessories as much as they are vision correction. In fact, the trend is so stylish that even people with perfect vision wear glasses just for the sake of fashion.
You buy other accessories like scarves, neck ties, bracelets, rings, watches, shoes, and purses because they make you both look and feel good, and your glasses should do the same. Eyewear could be perhaps the most important accessory of all since they’re worn where people look first when they meet you – your eyes. When it comes to style, Wise Eyes Optical’s collection of eyewear is unmatched. We have hundreds of frame styles and colors, ranging from minimalistic metal frames to trendy trapezoid looks, and everything in between.
So, whether you wear eyewear with prescription lenses, as readers, sunglasses or simply to achieve a certain look, here are some reasons why you should have multiple pairs of eyeglasses as a coordinated part of your wardrobe:
Different Occasions Call for Different Eyewear Styles
Attending a formal affair such as a wedding or party might call for suit and tie and evening gowns. That’s when you bring out the expensive jewelry, watches, and gems. Stylish gold or silver metal eyewear or elegant rimless frames are an excellent choice for when you’re dressing to impress. If you want to be “all business” at work, a more formal and stylish pair of glasses can very much complement a suit, dress suit, or uniform. A fun and casual pair of frames can be the perfect accessory for more relaxed nights and weekends.
Eyewear for Physical Activity and the Outdoors
If you’re a fan of hiking, playing ball, or other career, hobby, and leisure activities, or you work in a hazardous environment, you may need impact-resistant lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are used in many types of dangerous working environments and eyewear for athletes in all contact sports. When choosing eyewear for use in environments where you are likely to deal with potential impacts to the facial area, it is very important to select an equally impact-resistant frame. You’ll also want your frames to stay securely in place, so a frame with wrap around temples will help you look good while keeping your eyewear safe and in place. And of course, sunglasses or progressive lenses – with or without prescription – are a must for sun safety (and looking cool)!
Coordinate Your Eyewear with Your Clothing
Your wardrobe changes with the seasons or different occasions. Why not accessorize your eye wear to match your seasonal style? Tortoiseshell and acetate eyewear offer a multitude of selections to mix and match, or if you have gold accessories for some occasions and silver for others, choose eyewear that matches and completes the look.
Changing Your Eyewear Can Change Your Image
Eyeglasses can clearly reflect your personality. Are there times when you want people to focus more on your eyes and face? Frames that contrast with the tones of your face and clothing are a great way to do that. When you want focus to be placed elsewhere, a pair of frames that are more subdued and blend in will often be a better choice.
Oval frames are a widely favored, universal shape that appeal to most face types. Men and women alike enjoy semi-rimless styles with visible rims at the top of the lenses and no rim at the bottom. Larger, plastic frames in multiple colors allow younger wearers the freedom of self-expression, while maintaining a softer look. If you’re not sure about brightly colored frames, black or dark brown accentuates brunette hair and beige, or tortoiseshell-toned rims may look best on blondes and redheads. Rimless frames are a popular choice for those who prefer not to make a bold statement with their eyeglasses.
Prescription Sunglasses Can Look Great
You might already own a pair or two of sunglasses, but why not try a stylish pair of prescription sunglasses? Clip-ons are cumbersome, increase risk of harming your lenses, and are not usually considered very fashionable. A pair of prescription sunglasses can provide you a much more unique look that is much easier to maintain.
Which Are the Best Frames for You? The Choice is Yours!
Alright, there are many reasons to wear eyeglasses: nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism…but what about style, fashion, and accessorizing? If you are fashion-focused, then having more than one pair of frames is a sound investment. You don’t have to be locked in to one look, and more frame options just increases your potential range of styles!
