Glasses Styling Tips

Finding the right glasses style for you can be really difficult. You're used to shopping for clothes and knowing your waist size, your shoe size etc, but knowing what size of glasses fits your head, suits your face shape, your style personality and your skin tone can be super difficult.

So I've created this page to give you some tips on how to find eyewear that will work for you.
You walk in, and see racks of frames, they all look pretty similar... You have no idea what would suit you, and when you do sit down with the advisor (who may or may not be a qualified Dispensing Optician) for advice, you're greeted with questions like “What would you like? What are you thinking?”

But you don't really know what styles of glasses suit you and would make you look a million dollars! You have loose ideas based on some people you've seen on TV or magazines. But truly, you have no idea!

What you really want to know is:

  • Which pair of glasses will make me look as, or even more attractive, than I look without glasses?
  • Which pair of glasses are going to suit MY face shape?
  • Which colours would suit MY skin tone?
  • What's on trend in eyewear? What's fashionable right now? Which styles are timeless if I don't like to follow trends?
  • I feel like I need something that will go with everything, as I only want one pair. So I can't have a coloured frame right? 

Now, this is where I step in. (Yay!)

When qualifying as a Dispensing Optician, I noticed that there were no certified expertise in Optics when it comes to style. Everything that's taught is all based upon lenses, and lens cosmetics, with some brief information on frame materials. So I went above and beyond to get you the answers when it comes to eyewear style!

I travelled the world to visit all of the international eyewear trade shows to truly explore what amazing styles are available; Paris, Milan, Munich, NYC, you name it, I've been there! I worked for some of the top end Opticians in the UK, styling the rich and famous in niche eyewear. Even then, they were claiming to be “styling” opticians, and yet seemed to be winging it when it came to style! So I went even further and travelled to London to train to be a Personal Stylist. Here I learnt all about colour analysis, so that I can identify which colours suit your skin tone and lift you. I learnt about how to put the whole outfit together, not just your specs.

Dan is great! He really knows what he's doing, and I love my new glasses! I wouldn't go to anyone else for eyewear advice in the future, Dan's the man!
