6 Style Tips For Women Who Wear Glasses 

Once upon a time, wearing eyeglasses was considered more uncool and dorky than chic and fashion-forward. Some would even switch to contact lenses the minute they could! However, because of the versatile eyewear colors, shapes, and sizes, glasses have become a trend that won’t end anytime soon. 

So if you want it to be a subtle addition to your overall look or an eye-catching centerpiece, you don’t have to worry about looking out of style. What you do have to worry about, though, is how you can style your specs in a way that complements your entire ensemble. 

Of course, we’ve armed ourselves with some style tips for women who wear glasses, so you won’t have to do it on your own. Read on below! 

Pick The Best Frame For Your Face Shape

Let’s start with the obvious. The frame you’re going to use is the most important element in styling your glasses. Not all frames are made equal, so choose one that flatters your face shape. You want to accentuate your natural beauty, not hide it behind specs that don’t match your features.

First thing’s first, figure out what kind of face shape you have. Is it oval or square? Or is it round or heart-shaped? Examine yourself closely in the mirror or ask a friend about their thoughts. Once you’ve pinpointed what your shape is, start looking for options.

The unspoken rule of thumb is to find frame shapes that contrast with the shape of your face. Round face shapes may look better with rectangular frames, while round frames may accentuate a square face shape. It’s all about finding the right visual balance. 

Don’t forget to step out of your comfort zone every once in a while! Make sure to experiment with different styles until you land on the perfect one.

Go For Frames That Fit Your Lifestyle 

Aside from allowing you to see better and make a fashion statement, your glasses should also fit your lifestyle. If you regularly participate in sports or if you love going outdoors, it would be best to get a pair of everyday glasses that have features such as impact resistance or those with tinted lenses. Keep in mind the size and weight of your frames as well, as they affect the quality of the fit. 

Choose Complementary Colors 

The shape of your frame isn’t the only thing that you should pay close attention to. Color is another important factor. Choose frames in colors that will complement your skin tone. People with cool skin tones tend to look better with frames that are purple, gray, black, silver, mauve, or blue. For people with warmer skin tones, you’ll glow even brighter with colors such as olive green, brown, beige, gold, and amber. You can also base the color of your frame on the colors or tones of your hair, eyes, and clothing. 

Opt For Lighter Makeup Options 

Your frames will create dark shadows under your eyes that you can counteract with a brightening concealer. Black eyeliner and dramatic smoky eyes make for an amazing look, but they can get magnified underneath your glasses, making your eyes appear smaller than normal. 

Stick with lighter makeup trends that accentuate your eye shape. If you want to wear liner, choose shades such as navy blue or brown, as they’re less extreme than black. Some white along your inner lash line can also help to make everything pop.  And of course, get your brows on point

Downsize Your Accessories 

You shouldn’t be limited by your glasses, but you don’t want to go overboard with accessorizing either. Your specs already make a huge impact on their own, so wearing them with a lot of jewelry might make things a little too cluttered. Keep the phrase “less is more” in mind when putting on your accessories. And remember that they have to complement each other instead of going against one another. 

Stick with delicate and tiny earrings and necklaces. If you have a frame that looks good with the shape of your diamond earrings, go for it! You can also consider customizing colors according to the style of your frames. 

Clean Your Glasses 

It sounds so simple, but a lot of bespectacled people tend to forget the simplest style tip: keep your glasses clean! Not only do dirty glasses make seeing harder, but they also just don’t look good. Use a specs case to protect them when you don’t have to put them on and make sure to use proper cleaning supplies (a.k.a. microfiber cloth and cleaning solution) to keep them immaculate. No matter how tempting, don’t wipe your glasses with your shirt! That will only cause scratches that will damage your lens. 

Be Creative, Be Yourself 

A very very crucial thing to remember as a strong and independent bespectacled woman is to just be yourself. While you can follow every tip listed above, at the end of the day, it might not be your cup of tea. Whatever pair you choose to wear, it should make you feel confident. Own it and wear it with pride!
