I’ve made quite the spectacle of myself with my latest fashion obsession (wait for it…). I’m talking about my fave staple piece, glasses (boom!), and recently I’ve been getting a lot of questions from my followers about where I get all of them. I didn’t realize until I went through my Instagram lately… and I tend to be obsessed with frames. Nerdy is in, kids, and if that’s wrong then I don’t wanna be right!
When it comes to choosing frames, I take three factors into account: the shape, the colour and the texture. This seems pretty straight forward, but since as a piece they tend to be the focal point of your look (seems fair since they’re literally in the middle of your face), it’s important to know which frames work for your face shape, and which colours complement your complexion and eye colour.
I’m a big fan of the wayfarer shape, but I’ve been known to dabble with more round shapes (channelling my inner Penny Lane) or even cat-eye shaped frames. When it comes to colours, I love a marbled tortoise look, but I’m not afraid of a solid black or even coloured frame.
The options are endless, and the world is your four-eyed oyster. Try some out for yourself– with school starting again, you’ll fit the part and look bad-a** doing it.
With that said, eye’ll leave you with a little joke:
What do you call a one-eyed dinosaur?
