Celebrity Copycat: Jessica Simpson’s Look for Less!

Filed under Celebrity Copycat

I’ve always loved and admired Jessica Simpson.  She’s gorgeous, a successful business woman/mom and despite what many think, smart as all hell.  Her style for some reason just doesn’t make sense sometimes.  How could someone own  a HUGE fashion line and look borderline sloppy more often than not? Thankfully this isn’t the case with this outfit.  It seems her last baby kicked her personal style back into gear.  It’s an edgy look that I love especially for a new mama but I do feel like the proportions are off a bit so I recreated the look for less with a more flattering size faux fur.

How to Choose the Best Eyeglass Frames for Your Face

The following is a guest post

There was a time when wearing eyeglasses was considered “not cool.” Now, though, there are plenty of attractive frames available for men, women and children that complement natural style and can be attractive accessories. If you find yourself in need of a new pair of frames, consider these variables as you shop in order to choose the right style for your face.


Balance Face Shape
The basic shape of your face is probably the most important factor when choosing frames. Everyone has a unique facial structure, but there are a few basic shapes you can use as guidelines when choosing a design that fits your face.
• Angular faces such as diamonds and squares benefit from rounded frames that help to soften the sharp lines.
• Round and oval faces look good with sharp, angular frame shapes but are also flattered by shapes that match the contours of the face.
• Long, narrow faces do best with glasses that have broad tops and heavy upper frames or decorative accents. These features help the face appear shorter.
• Triangular faces may be narrow at the top or at the bottom. Look for frames that are wider and heavier at whichever side your face is thinnest.

Complement Eyebrow Shape
As you’re looking at your face shape, take note of the contour of your eyebrows. Eyebrows are a prominent, expressive feature that can be accentuated to good effect with an attractive pair of eyeglasses. Following the shape of your eyebrows helps add definition to your eye area. Rectangular frames look good with straight or flat eyebrows while frames with rounded tops flatter a curved brow shape.

Consider Color
Look at the color of your eyes and hair as well as your skin tone to determine if your basic colors are more “warm” or “cool.” Choose frames that complement these tones for a balanced, attractive look. As you think about colors, consider your personality as well. Eyeglasses are an accessory to every outfit that you wear, so you want to be sure to choose something that reflects your inherent style. If you wear makeup, use your favorite palette to help you choose a similar frame color that highlights the best features of your face.

Keep Your Eyes Centered
Centering your eyes inside your chosen frames is both fashionable and practical. When the frames sit too high or too low, it becomes difficult to see out of your lenses properly. This undermines the whole point of wearing glasses by forcing you to peer under or over the frames instead of through them. Frames that are too high also interfere with the appearance of your eyebrows, resulting in an unbalanced look that doesn’t flatter any face shape.

As you look to balance all of these factors, keep your budget in mind. Cheap eyeglasses are available everywhere from your optometrist’s office to the optical department of your favorite store and online at Coastal Contacts. Shop around for the frames that suit you best so you can step out in style with a new pair of glasses.
