Little known fact about me: I wear eyeglasses! I rarely take photos with them on, as I mainly need them for long distances like the movies or driving at night, but I’m always so shocked by how many compliments I get when I wear them. My husband Mackenzie quite likes how I look in them, and some friends recently have complimented me when I’ve had them on (even many of my closest friends rarely see me in them). So, I thought it was time to start wearing them more often as a cute fashion accessory, to add a little something to my outfit.
As I’m sure many of you can relate, wearing contacts can be a real drag sometimes, especially when you travel as often as I do. Now that I’ve decided to wear my reading glasses more often, it feels pretty liberating whenever I skip my contacts while getting ready in the morning. I still wear them 80% of the time, but it feels fun to switch it up and has inspired me to invest in a few cute new pairs of eyeglasses. Here are some cute eyeglasses trends that I think will be so cute for 2017. Shop my picks below!
In my search for new glasses, I’ve noticed some seriously cool tortoise shell frames that really make a statement. There are so many cute pairs that vary in color and shape, oversized, round, you name it. I’m loving the new twist on tortoise!
With Spring just around the corner, try an interesting color frame to add some interest to your look. My favorites so far are rose pink, teal green, and even multicolored.
I think the clear look is so unexpected and chic. Plus, they go with literally any color palette, though I would tend to wear them in a more casual setting. A true fashionista frame!
You’ll never go wrong sporting a classic, even slightly masculine pair of eyeglasses (like these cool Oliver Peoples ones that I’m wearing). Emily Ratajkowski is one startlet that sports this look all the time, and I love how it adds a touch of distinguished style to even the most casual looks. These are also great for wearing to work.
