How to Rock Eyewear in Every Look

How to Rock Eyewear in Every Look


Nowadays, eyewear is used for both function and fashion. Apart from its original purpose of vision correction and protection, eyewear has also become a fashionable accessory that speaks volumes about your sense of style and confidence. However, not every lady knows how to style their glasses. For those who are still figuring out their signature aesthetic, incorporating eyewear into your ensemble might feel like a big challenge. So, to help you out, we've curated a list of expert tips to help you rock your favorite eyewear in every look.

Choose flattering frames for your face shape

The first step in perfecting your look is all about finding the right frames that enhance your face shape and unique features. Generally speaking, if you have round features and soft curves, opt for square or rectangular frames to add more definition. On the other hand, an angular face shape, characterized by a strong jawline and prominent cheekbones, looks more balanced with oval or round glasses.

The same rule of thumb goes for the width of your glasses. Narrow frames can elongate your face, while wide frames can add the illusion of dimension. To ensure that your eyeglasses consistently flatter your face, use a virtual try-on tool at home. This helps you get a better idea of what frame shape fits your face without having to go out of your way. By using virtual tech and your phone camera, virtual try-ons project an AR image of your chosen eyewear onto your face in real-time. Alternatively, if you have access to an in-person optician, you could also ask them to help you choose frames and styles that fit your individual features.

Invest in versatile frame colors

Aside from considering the frame shape, it also helps to choose a versatile frame color. Since you’re going to wear them daily, the frames have to fit with your existing wardrobe. Aside from working with your wardrobe, the color of your glasses should complement your personal coloring. Considering personal undertones will play a part in how well a pair of glasses look on you. Generally, warm skin tones match well with rich, earthy colors, while cool skin tones match better with winter shades.

If you’re a new eyewear shopper, choose neutral frame colors like black, brown, or tortoiseshell. These safe shades can blend with your wardrobe and look compatible with any skin tone, ensuring your glasses become an extension of your style rather than an afterthought. Once you feel confident enough, try getting out of your comfort zone by selecting jewelry tones like gold or silver.

Spice it up with jewelry

Speaking of jewelry, don’t hesitate to get playful and embellish your eyewear with subtle jewelry accents. Try attaching delicate chains or mini charms to the temples of your frames, adding a touch of glamour and individuality to your everyday look. You can even go for a maximalist aesthetic and stick little gems, pearls, stickers, or decorative tape around the frames.

Another must-know fashion tip is to match your jewelry with eyeglasses. If you’re wearing golden frames, pair them with gold hoop earrings as well for a cohesive look. A matching glint of gold or the sparkle of a dainty gem can turn your glasses into an unexpected style statement.

Regardless of whether you're using your glasses for style, wellness, or both, they are versatile staples you can use anytime. With the right approach and clever considerations, your glasses can complete your every look.
