Eye glasses have managed to go from being a utilitarian item to a fashion accessory in the past few years. It’s no longer all about picking a basic pair that you can wear every day. People are now colour coordinating their frames to match their clothes; it has become quite normal for a person to own at least two or three pairs of glasses that they can pick and choose from.
Here are some great tips on how to wear different types of glasses.
Nerdy glasses are making a big comeback. These glasses come with super sturdy frames in a square or rectangle shape. Although they might be available in different colours, the most popular option seems to be in black. Opt for nerdy glasses if you love wearing glasses and want to make a statement with them. If you tend to wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis, then you should give these glasses a pass as they will not really go well on a made-up face. If, contrarily, you wear little to no makeup and mostly dress up in jeans and sneakers, then the nerdy glasses will fit right in with your look.

Not to mention they also look super professional and neat, which is a much desired quality in a corporate setting.

Another blast-from-the-past is the cat-eye frames. These are so OTT and quirky but also super cool and trendy at the same time.

Go crazy with your makeup, your cat-eye glasses will just accentuate it and make you look fabulous.
First off, round glasses are not for everyone. That being said, they are super unique and you can totally make them your trademark look. If you work in the creative field, such as advertising or writing, or are an artist of sorts, then you should definitely consider owning a pair of these. Not only do they look cool, they are also intriguing and are sure to get people interested in getting to know ‘that person wearing those unusual glasses’.
