7 Tips For Looking Your Best In Specs

Finding the perfect glasses can seem like a daunting task. There are thousands of styles out there and even more colour combinations to consider. In this article, we’ll help you choose your glasses, get the most out of your frames and give you some tips for looking your best in specs. 

Choose the Right Frames

Not all frames are created equal, and the same can be said for face shapes. This means that not all glasses will suit your face. It may take a little bit of experimenting, but eventually, you’ll find the perfect frames for you. Glasses designers have gone above and beyond to develop frames for every face shape, hairstyle and skin tone. 

Online retailers such as Spex4less have made this process much easier. Shopping for glasses is no longer an expensive nor a time-consuming task. Now you can simply shop online and have them delivered straight to your door.

Many online glasses retailers offer money-back satisfaction guarantees. This means that if you’re not getting on with your glasses, you can simply return them for a new pair or a full refund. This takes out the risk of online purchases and gives you peace of mind that you’ll get your perfect frames. 

Think About Your Lenses

You may think your lenses are locked to your prescription, and this is true, in a sense. Gone are the days of thick milk bottle lenses. Glasses now come with a variety of lens options from standard lenses and those that are up to 50% thinner. 

Lens thinness is particularly important for those purchasing thinner frames or semi-rimless glasses. Lens thinning helps prevent the lens from protruding out from your frames. Thinner lenses are also lighter which means you can wear your glasses for longer and be more comfortable whilst doing so. 

Keep Them Clean

No matter how nice your glasses are, dirt and grime can make the most beautiful frames look worn out and cheap. Dust, dirt and scratches can accumulate gradually on glasses and this build-up can be easily missed when you’re wearing your frames but will be noticed by others.

It is important to tackle this problem early. Cleaning your glasses regularly will not only help keep them looking their best but will also make them last longer and ensure you’re seeing clearly. 

Consider your face shape

The shape of your face is one of the most important things to consider. A pair of glasses may look great on one person but might not look so good on another. This can be largely down to the difference in face shape. For example, those of you with a round face should try to avoid round frames and instead look for more angular, sharper designs. 

On the other hand, those with angular faces should look to soften these sharper features with round or oval frames. A general rule of thumb is to pick a pair of glasses that contrast your face shape. 

Check Your Hair

It may not be one of the first things you think about when buying new glasses, but your hair can have a big impact. The way your hair frames your face can decide what glasses are right for you. This does however give you an excuse to experiment with not only your frames but your hairstyle as well. Ask your friends and those around you about what they think and don’t be afraid to try something different or out of your comfort zone. 

Dress For Your Job

Glasses may be small but they can be mighty. They can change the entire vibe of an outfit. Think about what you’ll be wearing daily. Bright red cat-eye frames might not always be appropriate, even if they do look great on you. 

Others, especially those working in hands-on jobs, may want to look for more robust frames. Glasses made out of Stainless steel offer a sturdy and long-lasting option. Acetate frames made out of a type of strong plastic, are great for those looking for a robust frame without sacrificing style or comfort. 

Be Confident

This is the most important tip here. Looking confident and having belief in yourself can be the difference in making an okay outfit, a great one. Let your glasses be a feature of your outfit, not just something hidden behind your hair or hands. 

Be confident in the eyewear choices you make and your frames will do the rest. Whether you’ve gone for bright eye-catching retro frames or are keeping it simple with understated and sophisticated rectangular glasses, having confidence in your frames is crucial. 

Ultimately, the only one who can pick your glasses is you. Picking frames that you love and being confident in them is crucial. However, these tips can help you get the most out of your frames.
