Fashionable frames for your eyes only

A friend of mine who wears glasses asked me to write about this subject and she also kindly made a selection. I guess she wants to see my take on such a fashionable accessory. I’ve chosen a couple of my liking too.

Aside from their pure practical purpose, the eye glasses become a style statement when it comes to the frames. Round, embellished, colorful, you name it, there is at least one big designer name that added them to the offering.

Color crush

The Hexaforte design by MICHEL HENAU is definitely an edgy one. They are great if you have brown to red hair, too harsh if you’re a dark brunette.

Retro metallic

Stella McCartney’s oversized aviator-style glasses are slightly more angular than classic pairs. The gold-tone frames can be fitted with prescription or UV-protective lenses, and the arms are trimmed with tortoiseshell acetate tips for comfort.

Round we go

The round shape is so stylish right now but unfortunately it doesn’t suit every face shape. These black acetate round frame glasses from Saint Laurent are great for rectangular faces or people with a prominent bone structure.

Cutler and Gross vintage inspired round metal frames are a classic. Choose them if you want to nail that geeky style! Maybe Emrata and Kendall Jenner shown above can inspire you this winter!
