Style Sleuth: Looking Through Rose-Colored Glasses

September 30, 2013 • Magazine, Style Sleuth


There’s nothing I love to hate more than looking for a new pair of eyewear.  I already have such a hard time picking out a pair of shoes to wear with my daily ensemble, it’s almost torturous to pick an accessory that I’ll have to wear all day, every day. Eyeglasses need to be versatile, yet stand out as well as embody your personality and lifestyle. That’s a tall order for such a little bit of metal and plastic.

Websites are picking up on the idea that it’s hard to figure out how your chosen frames will look on your face, and try to help but you can never really be certain. Geometric shapes work well for most facial structures except if your face is square, as this will bring out all the angles in your face. Also, unless you have a very tiny face, try to avoid all those small frames. All they will do is make you feel like your face is too big.

Lest you work in a corporate office, adding a bold pair of glasses will look great with everything you’re wearing. I always say, strive to add a bit of color to your glasses. You might be able to skip the earrings or a statement necklace since your eyewear can act as an accessory piece.

Make certain you pick a pair of glasses you’ll love to wear every day. No one wants to be stuck with just one pair that they hate wearing. Its great to have more than one pair of glasses, or if you can, pick a style for every day of the week!
