1. Know Your Face Shape

Some men’s and women’s sunglasses are designed to flatter your face shape. The same goes for reading glasses and blue light glasses. When you don’t know what specs look best, use our helpful guide to frame shapes or try our interactive Perfect Pair Finder. We also recommend browsing soft square glasses. This frame shape looks good on just about anyone. 

Rectangle glasses are an ideal match for oval faces. Round glasses are perfect for those with a square face and a jawline nearly as wide as the forehead. Round and diamond-shaped faces benefit from the attractive angles of cat-eye glasses. If you have a pretty heart shape face, half-frame glasses will help to accentuate your cheekbones. For something fun and unique, on-trend octagonal glasses look fashionable on almost anyone. 

2. Choose Flattering Frame Colors

Make your eyewear next-level with frames to complement your eye color. The right combination of hues gives your specs a naturally fashionable look. Choosing earth tones will bring out the gorgeous shades in brown eyes. Shop for traditional tortoise frames or a shade of green specs. Gray and black frames will bring depth and brightness to brown eyes. They also help to show off their sparkle. 

Match beautiful blue eyes to light blue or navy readers to highlight the spectrum of azure color behind your specs. Neutral frames featuring botanical tones like green or brown will accent flecks of green and gold in hazel eyes – or try gray glasses with gold accents. If you have green eyes, wear warm frames like caramel or tortoise. Gray eyes can wear bold, bright frames or stunning dark-colored glasses. Some of the best colors for gray eyes include burgundy and deep purple.

3. Choose On-Trend Eyewear

Take some time to choose a flattering frame shape and color and you’ll have a fashionable pair of glasses for every outfit. Oversized frames are on-trend, but they aren’t for the faint of heart. Some of the most stylish frames for men include clear, translucent glasses. Half-frame glasses are popular because they’re unique and comfortable. Stand out with a pop of color at the top or bottom of your lenses. 

Round and square frames are ideal for men’s sunglasses, but you can also go with statement-making oversized glasses. There are plenty of athletic and sporty styles that wrap around the face and provide an attractive, angular look. Beautiful, on-trend eyewear for women includes color block frames and iridescent glasses. Oversized and angular-shaped frames will stay in fashion for women for some time. Make your glasses more impressive with bold frame colors or a lens gradient.

4. Wear Understated Accessories and Makeup

Let your accessories and makeup match the style of your glasses. In most cases, less is more. Keep earrings small so they don’t clash with your specs. A pair of small hoops or studs won’t take away from most styles, but avoid large shapes and dangling designs. Necklaces should be thin and minimalist. 

Understated eyes and cheeks let your specs do the talking. Skip the drama and wear one coat of mascara in a lighter color. Clear or neutral-colored glasses let you get more creative with color. Purple and burgundy mascara can highlight your eyes, but keep your lids bare to avoid the appearance of dark shadows. Another strategy is to make your lips bolder. This style works best for thick and chunky glasses. Experiment with different lip colors to see what complements your frames.

Staying Fashionable in Your Specs

Another way to stay stylish in your glasses is to keep them clean. A dirty pair of lenses will never look flattering, so house them in a hard case and wash them regularly. You can also shop for frame shapes, depending on your style. For instance, vintage clothing lovers will find thin glasses and cat-eye frames in retro patterns and colors. Those who are fresh and traditional will find round readers and aviator sunglasses in classic shades to love. Shop with Peepers and you’ll always find a pair of stylish specs to fit your style and make you stand out.
