Fashion Glasses: Necessity and Accessory

From geek to chic, glasses have become a fashion statement, whether they are prescription or not. Glasses have come a long way from big, circular lenses to tons of fun modern designs. Today, glasses are no longer seen as just an aid for vision, instead, glasses are now a fashion statement.

Still, a large majority of the population need glasses to see. In fact, did you know that 3 out of 4 American adults use a form of vision correction?

Whether you need them or not, glasses are a fun addition to any outfit!

Necessity and Accessory

Flashback 20 years ago and think about being told you needed glasses. Your options for choosing a frame that compliments your face and style were slim to none.

Now, the options are endless. As designers have recognized that glasses are not just a medical aid, but also a fashion statement, they have created fun designs and styles that keep up with seasons, trends, and culture.  A surge of styles, fits, and colors are now available to try on and experiment with.

Think Fashion

Fashion changes with the seasons; why limit your glasses to one look? The pastel colors of spring and bright colors of summer call for all kinds of fun frames.

A neutral frame looks classic in the fall, and a fun pop of red is exciting during the winter season.

Don’t be afraid to try trends: circular wire rimmed frames are incredibly popular now.

Our opticians are style-savvy and know what glasses are trending. Not sure where to start? Our trained staff can help you find your style.

Switching up your look with glasses will not only be a conversation starter, but will get you excited about the way you look. Choosing a pair of glasses to go with your outfit in the morning should be like choosing the right jewelry, belts, and shoes.
