Fact: eyeglasses can be as MUCH of accessory fashion statement as your jewelry, watch, bag, or footwear. You just need to find the right shape, style, fabrication, and color that suits you best, since unlike the other items mentioned, you will have less of a choice regarding wearing them on an every day basis. Luckily, the prices of cool frames and lenses have come down so so much in recent years that you can easily afford to keep several pairs on hand, so go ahead and get that frivolous pair!
My favorite design, which I’ve been wearing now for seven years and looks great on every one is a slightly over sized gradient pair of shades. The gradient can be subtle or stark, and while choosing a brown, black, or grey gradient certainly makes the frames more versatile, again, don’t be afraid of a punch of bold color to make a great fashion statement.
