By choice or by obligation, more and more people wear eyeglasses. They have been ultra trendy for some time. It has even become an it-accessory to collect!
But to adopt this new fashion, you have to choose your model in terms of shape, color and quality! To help you, here are some tips for looking stylish with prescription glasses!
Choose glasses adapted to the shape of your face
Round, oval, rectangular, square, butterfly or cat eye glasses, there is a wide choice of frame shapes.
The first rule is to choose a frame that suits the shape of your face. If you have a round, square, oval face, some frame shapes will be more suitable than others.
For example, for a round face, it is recommended to choose glasses with a square or rectangular shape to contrast. Conversely, a square face will rather opt for round or oval glasses to soften the facial features. For a triangular face, prefer glasses in the shape of a butterfly. To refine a face, you have to bet on oversized glasses.
Choosing anti-blue light glasses
Whether you are nearsighted or not, if you spend a lot of time in front of screens like me, it is important to choose glasses with anti blue light protection.
Indeed, if you spend more than 2 hours in front of screens (smartphone, TV, computer, tablet) to go on social networks, watch series, work,… it is recommended to wear anti blue light glasses. These are glasses with protective lenses that block blue light that is harmful to our eyes.
In general, we spend more than 6 hours in front of the screens (this is especially my case), and the side effects are in particular migraines, sore eyes, sleep disorders.
Choose glasses according to your look
The idea is to be able to change your glasses according to your look and your desires. Don’t hesitate to collect several different models!
However, when you have vision problems, you usually only have one pair of corrected glasses because it is expensive. The solution to wearing stylish glasses while being nearsighted is to wear lenses + uncorrected glasses but protected against blue light and anti-reflective.
Indeed, especially for those who have a strong correction, the glasses are always thick even those which have been thinned and it is not very pretty. In addition, most lenses are not blue light blocking.
Therefore, to protect your eyes while having style and having several pairs of different glasses, the ideal is to combine lenses + anti blue light glasses without correction. You can put them on and take them off when you want / need them. In addition, you will have more choices.
For this, I particularly recommend the French brand Mize which offers quality, unisex glasses with unique and stylish designs to protect your eyes from screens. Here is the link to the Mize website and its entire range of trendy blue light blocking glasses.
Whether for prescription glasses or sunglasses, the current trend is for round, cat eye or oversized glasses.
Opt for butterfly-shaped glasses for a vintage look or oversized glasses for a more daring look.
Regarding colors and patterns, colored glasses (purple, red, green, yellow, etc.), transparent tinted (pink or yellow) or printed (tortoiseshell, etc.) glasses are very popular.
Finally, when it comes to materials, we favor eco-responsible models: wood, recycled plastic, hemp, etc.
In any case, the most important criterion is your taste! You have to choose a pair of glasses that you like and look like to wear them proudly every day!
