You’ve made the decision to buy a pair of quality designer glasses, or update and upgrade the ones you currently own. There are so many choices when it comes to fashionable eyewear – in fact, that is one of the best things about investing in a pair – but it can prove tricky to make the right choice for you. There are myriad things to consider, each one important to the overall look and feel of a pair of spectacles. For men looking to make the move into the world of designer glasses, here are a few things worth considering to help you make your decision. |
The spectrum of size for fashionable eyewear extends from the tiny – sometimes practically frameless – to enormous and bold statements that capture the attention of everyone who sees them. Regardless of what your preference is, it's important to think about future proofing your style and not just join in with a current trend, because it might not look right in a couple of years (especially if it’s a bit more extreme). This doesn’t mean going with something subtle or dull, but choosing frames no wider than your face is a good starting point.
Some opticians can tell which glasses will suit a face without needing to try any on. This is because there are styles that suit certain shapes and sizes better than others. For a look that lasts it’s a good idea to consider what will look best on you. It’s not an exact science, but a good rule of thumb would be to pair rounder faces with more angular styles, and a squarer face would often do well with rounder specs.
A Statement on Personality
Fashionable eyewear does more than just help us to see: it’s a statement on who we are, and how we want the world to know us. There is no right or wrong here, but before choosing a style you should carefully consider your personality and how you want others to think of you – bold, black frames can make you stand out and are real attention-grabbers, whereas sleek metal frames can complete a smart business look. You can choose a pair of glasses to suit any personality type and, if you get it right, they will really boost your confidence.
Do They Fit?
It might seem obvious, but your glasses need to fit you very well. This will not only improve comfort but will add to the overall look. Depending on the shape of your nose and ears different frames will fit better than others. Opticians can make plenty of adjustments as well.
When it comes to fashionable eyewear for men there are a few things that are very in vogue. Why not consider a few of them when making your decision?
Beige frames – a sandy shade that provides a warm look.
Clear frames – provides a sleek look without too much distraction.
Brow-line glasses – a classic 50s style that is back in fashion.
Round glasses – another retro look that suits a number of personalities.
Now you know a bit more about the factors to consider when choosing fashionable eyewear, you’ll be prepared to make this important decision. Whatever your personality or style, there will be a look out there that suits you down to the ground!
