Everyone knows the stereotype that glasses make you look smarter. We’ve all heard it since we were in elementary school. Even nowadays people say to wear glasses to an interview to have a better chance of getting a job offer. Well, that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. Of course, it’s always a bonus to look smarter, but glasses can also make you look trendier, more fashionable and put together, you just need to find the right pair. Here are a few tips for matching your eyeglasses with your outfit to elevate your style.
Tip #1: Look Through a Larger Catalog
You might go to an optical store and see a pair of glasses you like and buy them, without knowing that your perfect pair of glasses are actually still out there. It’s always a good idea to look through as many stores as possible, because you might think you found the perfect pair, but you actually end up finding your perfect pair somewhere else.
The best option is to look for your glasses online. Online optical stores have larger catalogs to choose from, so you won’t have to go from store to store. You can just sit on your couch and spend as much time as you’d like looking for your perfect pair. Because the catalog is so large, you’re basically guaranteed to find your perfect pair. You’ll also get your glasses faster if you order them online, you can even get your glasses the same day.
Tip #2: Analyze Your Wardrobe
It only makes sense that your glasses need to embrace your style, not take away from it. Take a minute to look through your wardrobe. What is your style? Are you more trendy? Classic? Feminine? Grunge? What is the vibe you want to give off with your outfits? These are all questions you need to ask yourself, to understand what kind of frames will match your style best.
Besides figuring out your style, you need to figure out your color scheme. First, what colors do you normally wear? What colors do you find appealing? What are your natural colors? What colors do you feel suit you best? These questions will help you choose the right color for your glasses. Choosing the right color is incredibly important, and it’s quite hard too. It’s probably a better idea to choose a more neutral color for your frames, so that they’ll go with more of your clothes.
Tip #3: Your Glasses Should Add to Your Outfit
Always keep in mind that your glasses should be adding to your outfit, not taking away from it. So, if you like to wear more casual outfits with more casual colors, it might be a good idea to get a more exciting frame to elevate your outfit. But, if you like to wear more eye-catching, colorful outfits, it would be a better idea to stick with a more classic frame. In fashion, two many positives start going negative, so if you have too many eye-catching elements to your outfit, it’s going to start taking away from the look and going towards the negative side. Whereas, if you add a positive to neutrals (adding eye-catching frames to a more casual outfit), the outfit will look much more put together and elevated.
Tip #4: Match Your Accessories Together
Try to choose a pair of glasses that go with your other accessories. An outfit looks much more put together when the accessories match. For example, you can match the color of your glasses to the color of your purse. Or, if your glasses have a geometric frame, you can get a pair of geometric earrings to go with them. Or, you could match their styles by getting classic frames with classic jewelry with a classic purse. Consistency in the accessories will make you look much neater and will definitely elevate your look.
Tip #5: Stick With What Works
If you’ve already had a pair of glasses in the past that you’ve really liked, maybe you should just stick with what you already know works. Of course, it can be exciting to change things up, but it’s also a lot easier to keep the same pair of glasses, or choose a frame that is similar to your old one. Especially if you have spent a long time wearing the same pair of glasses, you may have already gotten used to what they look like on your face, and it can be hard to change that. There’s nothing wrong with keeping a style that you know looks good on you.
With these tips in mind, you’ll for sure be able to match your glasses with your outfits. It’s really not that hard, all you have to do is stay true to your style and the rest will come along on its own!
