Finding Ladies Glasses to Suit You

by Beth Griffiths on 16th May 2017

Picking a pair of ladies glasses is not as easy as it sounds. You have to take all sorts of different aspects into consideration before deciding on the pair you are going to be happy to wear day in and day out.

Whether you are looking for a new frame for work or in the process of looking for the perfect pair of sunglasses for the summer you need to find the perfect combination of fashion and suitability for your features.

Know Your Face Shape

The first place to start is the shape of your face. Look in a mirror and look at the outline of your face and try to determine whether your shape is:

  • Heart
  • Oval
  • Round
  • Square
  • Oblong


If you struggle to decide what shape your face is, make sure your hair is tied back and draw the outline of your face on the mirror using eyeliner or a lip pencil.

Evaluate if your face is longer than it is wide, if you have a strong jawline, round cheeks, or a high forehead.


Your Fashion Inspirations

Next, you should consider what your style is and try to find frames that will match your wardrobe. Think about the celebrities you like and do some research into the types of glasses they are wearing this year. There are several trends that have been seen on the catwalks and red carpets that will certainly make a statement and modernise your look such as:

  • Cateye glasses have a fantastic look which is regarding as being flirty and sexy, so it’s a great look for the evenings and weekends but it probably isn’t the right style for the office.
  • Nerd glasses are still popular with men and women. They have been boosted by celebrities such as Johnny Depp and Zooey Deschanel.
  • Aviator glasses never really go out of fashion – they are a classic look and the ideal sunglass shape. If you need prescription sunglasses, aviators are a great option to choose as you can wear them year after year without fear of looking out of style.


Finding the Perfect Combination

 If you’re buying your prescription glasses online look out for the virtual mirror feature. All you need to do is upload a photo of your face and you can virtually try on glasses as if you were looking in a mirror in a shop or at your opticians.
