Glasses can be a great accessory, and they are so popular that some individuals who don’t even really need them, have them. However, for those that are new to spec wearing, it can be struggle to know how to style them, especially if you have to keep them on almost 24/7.
Below, we are going to discuss six tips to help you style your favorite pair of glasses. Let’s get started!
Keep Makeup Minimal
Whether you wear rectangle glasses, round ones, or those that are oversized, one great rule to follow when styling them is to keep your makeup minimal. This can be tricky because you may want to bring more focus to your eyes, but it is, in fact, logical. Thick frames should be balanced out with soft, natural makeup. However, a great bright and bold lip can also work well to tie everything together.
Coordinate Your Jewelry
This step may be overlooked at first, but coordinating your jewelry is a simple way to tie your frames to your outfit. For example, if your glasses have silver accents, opt for silver jewelry and vice versa. To get started, make sure you choose the right color metal for your skin tone. You would be amazed at the difference it makes.
Downsize Other Accessories
Since glasses are such a big item, you want to let them take the light and downsize to other smaller accessories. Wearing a big statement necklace or a pair of oversized earrings can make your face seem cluttered and mask your natural beauty. Instead, opt for small dainty pieces, like pearl studs and simple chains.
Choose Complementary Colors
Since glasses come in so many different colors and patterns, you want to choose a pair that compliments your usual style. For instance, red specs look great with navy blues and black tones, while a tortoiseshell pair are more versatile.
This is something you’ll want to consider when you are picking out new glasses, as you may want a pair that will go well with everything.
Stay True to Your Style
We all have our own unique style, so when wearing your glasses, make sure you stay true to it. Whether you prefer punk, vintage, preppy, or bohemian clothes, your outfit and accessories should represent who you are. Keep the theme flowing, but don’t be afraid to experiment here and there. That’s the fun thing about fashion, after all!
Lastly, the most crucial step in styling your glasses is to remember to be confident. While you can choose to follow the above, the final choice is up to you. Hold your head high, be proud of your look, and never be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. There is nothing wrong with breaking some fashion boundaries!
And that’s it! These were six tips to help you style glasses. So, what are you waiting for? Go and show the world how you can rock your new specs.
