Glasses: The Necessary Accessory
I can vividly remember the first time I was told that I needed glasses. It was the day of my 17th birthday and after a brief moment of panic, I decided on giving myself the gift of a quirky Lisa Loeb makeover and set out to find the perfect pair glasses to go with my new look . My first pair of glasses were a cat eye shaped pair by Armani and cost a whopping $400 (fortunately the purchase of glasses coincided with my getting a drivers license so my mom thankfully helped out). I wore them proudly for 2 years before I branched out and decided to try different styles to go with my outfits. I loved the idea of wearing glasses and they became a integral part of my accessorizing.
Not much has changed since then – I still wear glasses – but my selection of frames has evolved over the years. Currently black frames are my go to pair and I accessorize around them. Oftentimes glasses are the first thing that people notice, so why not make them fun and a extension of your personality! Look for discount eyeglassesso that you can buy multiple pairs to play with. Below are two outfits for day and night that I built around chic glasses.
A classic pair of black nerdy chic frames will never go out of style and they are perfect to wear with just about anything. I paired them up with a leather jacket, jeans and booties for a edgier feel.
These animal print frames are very similar to the ones I first had and I still love them! I like the idea of these glasses dressed for a sexy studious look. A midi length dress is the first thing I envisioned it with and of course red pumps….flawless!
Glasses no longer have a stigma…they’re stylish fun and sexy…now’s the time to flaunt them!
