Being told you have to wear glasses full-time can feel a lot like bad news. No matter how you look at it, you may be unable to see how you’ll ever feel confident again. How can you feel good with a piece of plastic resting on the edge of your nose?
In truth, though, changing the way you think about this could be all it takes to get on board with the news. You need to stop thinking of these glasses as a hindrance. Instead, consider them an accessory which can help rather than hinder your look. The moment you do that, you can make yourself feel good each time you slip these babies on. To ensure this works for you, consider the following.
Many of us are reluctant to spend real money on glasses. You didn’t choose to have them, why should they leave you out of pocket? Instead, we go for any buy one get one free deal we can find. And, this often results in limited choices and an ultimately unappealing pick. Instead, treat this how you would any other accessory, and go designer. These will be visible every day of your life. Or, at least until you get a new pair. So, make sure they send the right impression. Shop Eyewearhaus and other stores like them, where you’ll have unlimited access to designers like Seraphin. Check out where your favorite celebs are getting their glasses from, and seek the same brands. Even the most reluctant glasses wearer is going to feel good in a top-end pair of Prada specs.
Add a splash of color
Accessories are fantastic for adding color. And, your glasses could do the same. Too often, we opt for neutral frames which go with every outfit. And, this move makes sense given you’ll likely only have two or three pairs to play with. But, by taking this chance to add color, you could really help you glasses come into their own. Think about tones you wear, and opt for frames which are sure to go with as many of your outfits as possible. You’d be amazed how much colored glasses can set the rest of your fashion choices alight. In fact, few other accessories have this level of power. So, make the most of it.
Match your outfits
As mentioned, many people avoid color because they want their glasses to go with as many outfits as possible. But, this still means viewing your glasses as an unwanted addition rather than a welcome accessory. Instead, take time to match your glasses with your outfits. Think about incorporating the color of your frames elsewhere in your choices. Consider, too, the general sense of your outfit. A business suit, for instance, would work best with a square frame. Yet, a flowing dress would work better with rounded glasses. Considering small things like these each time you change can ensure you see the real potential of the accessory you didn’t want in the first place.
