How to Choose Your Next Pair of Designer Frames

Any glasses with prescription lenses can improve your vision. However, the frames themselves are the most visible element of any glasses and how they look directly affect your appearance, as well as how you feel when you are wearing them. If you choose the wrong frames, it can highlight features that you’d rather not draw attention to. Meanwhile the right ones can give you extra confidence and improve your self-esteem.


With lots of different glasses to choose from, knowing which ones to select isn’t always easy. However, if you are looking for quality and style, you may be tempted by a pair of designer frames. Usually a little more expensive but guaranteed to be on trend and made from high quality materials, designer frames can be a great investment in your appearance. Here’s what you need to know how to choose your first or next pair of designer frames. 



What style glasses will suit you best?



With so many different styles to choose from, it’s inevitable that not all glasses frames will necessarily suit you. Choosing the right glasses for your face shape can alter the way that you look and boost your confidence when you’re wearing them. Knowing which style glasses will suit you best might not be obvious, but your glasses provider should be happy to help guide you to the perfect frames. There are also plenty of apps which let you try on virtual glasses so you can experience how different styles might look, without even leaving the house.


  • Oblong face shapes should avoid narrow and rectangular frames and should instead consider some with more depth, which will offset the length of your face. 
  • Diamond face shapes really suit frames with strong details, such as a thicker or embellished brow line, while oval glasses will help to soften the angular lines of your face. 
  • Square face shapes should avoid thin, angular and square styles and instead soften their appearance using oval or round frames, or a cat-eye style. 
  • Triangle face shapes often work better with glasses that are wider at the bottom, which minimizes the width of the top of your face. 
  • Round face shapes will benefit from glasses that create angles, making square and cat-eye frames an excellent choice.
  • Oval face shapes are the luckiest of all since they suit virtually any glasses style. Take your pick!



Designer frames are an investment in your eyewear 



Although they can cost more than generic glasses, when you choose designer eyewear, you are making an investment in your eyewear. Reputable designer brands use strong, durable and often social-responsible materials to create their eyewear, and this means that you can be assured that your new frames are going to last. Most people can feel the quality of designer frames as soon as they touch them! 


Many designer brands also sell their glasses with warranties that will protect your investment in the event that something happens to your glasses, such as you accidentally sitting on them or leaving them somewhere. And if your glasses need repair, well this is much easier too, since spare parts for designer frames are usually much more readily available.
