Lens Trends: Turning Your Glasses Into A Fashion Statement

Everyone has a different experience when they wear something like glasses. While some people love to wear them, others will absolutely hate it, and it can be hard to find a middle ground that makes you feel comfortable. Many people worry that their glasses look silly or don’t suit them, knocking their confidence and making it harder to wear glasses in the future. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring some of the work that can go into turning your glasses into a fashion statement, even if you don’t like wearing them in the first place.


The first part of this process is going to involve seeking some inspiration. It’s always a good idea to approach something like this with ideas in mind, and it’s incredibly easy to find pictures of people wearing glasses around the web. Websites like Instagram are packed to the brim with people posting images of themselves, and you can often search for specific hashtags that relate to the glasses you like to find the right posts. Of course, though, you need to make sure that you’re looking at as much content as possible as you go through this.

Setting The Rules
One of the biggest problems people face when they are choosing glasses will be making sure that the pair they choose suits them. You can usually figure out which types of glasses will suit you best by simply looking at what other people are wearing. By finding those with similar face shapes, you will have the opportunity to get an insight into this before you start shopping around. Having an idea of what you’ll be avoiding will always help to narrow down your options as you carry out your hunt. It’s always worth making sure that you’re giving yourself plenty of options as you go through this.


The Styles
There are countless different glasses styles available in the modern world, and they will come in and out of fashion just like anything else. Choosing a style that not only meets the trends but also suits you can be tricky, with some people choosing to visit their local eye doctor to give themselves the chance to try the styles they have available to them. Many glasses retailers will let you order sample packs with a range of their frames to check out and try on, providing you with an opportunity to see and feel the frames you like before putting loads of money into getting your hands on them.

The styles you can find vary wildly, with some glasses being simple and refined, and others coming with far more decoration. Finding a popular but classic frame should be nice and easy, with countless options available around the web when you’re shopping around for this. The frame, shape of the lenses, and even the color will all influence the way that you look at your glasses. It’s always worth looking for styles that are likely to look fashionable for a long time, while also giving you the chance to make a statement.

The Brand
Designer clothing has long been popular around the world. Acting as a status symbol, people like to wear items with labels, and this is only becoming more prevalent in the modern world. Many glasses come with designer branding, and this can be a huge selling point to those who want to have this as part of their style. It’s worth thinking about the brand you choose for this, as the designs of the glasses won’t change too much between different companies. Of course, you will have to be prepared to pay a premium for your glasses if you want to have designed branding.


The Coordination
Fashion is all about finding visual combinations that can work together. The glasses you choose will need to coordinate with your outfits if you want them to look their best, though there are a couple of different approaches that can be taken with this. Some people will want to go down the simple route, choosing glasses that come in a neutral color like black or dark blue, as this will go with most outfits with minimal effort.

If you’d like to tailor this to your outfits, though, you’re going to need to get your hands on a range of different glasses. Colors can be a good way to do this, with brighter colored glasses being extremely popular nowadays. Alongside this, though, you could also think about the shapes of your glasses, and any additional trimmings that can be added to them to make them look even nicer. Some glasses companies work extremely hard to make their pieces look like art, rather than a functional item.


Getting Some Help
Choosing glasses for yourself can be a tricky decision to make. You will have to live with this choice for at least a year or two, and this can make the whole thing quite stressful. Getting some help along the way will ease your mind and make the whole process simpler, giving you the chance to focus on assessing each pair to make sure that it is perfect for you before you decide to buy it. Many online glasses retailers can help you with this, though you could also use websites like Reddit to find communities of glasses experts who will be happy to provide you with knowledge and advice.

With all of this in mind, you should be feeling ready to take on the challenge of finding glasses that meet your style needs. It can be easy to fall into the trap of wearing specs that don’t suit you, and a lot of people find themselves in this position at some point in their lives. Of course, though, with the right time and effort, you should always be able to bag a pair that you like the look of, even if you have to spend some money in the process.
