Optical Accessories: Retro Appeal


As you may know, I consider my eyeglasses very much a fashion accessory, just as any statement necklace. Accessories are often the finishing touch to an outfit. From work meetings to reading at home, I have finally managed to procure a nice collection over the years. So, I was honoured to be chosen as one of Coastal’s Style Ambassadors.

Eye frames, in general have positively been ushered into new fashion territory just within the past decade. Undoubtedly, even with new technology, frame shapes, and colours, there are a plethora of other factors that can affect your decision in selecting fashionable frames. Let’s not forget, fit and style is very important when choosing a frame that is perfect for your face shape and lifestyle.

I would say that I grew into adoring my eyeglasses, meaning that when I was a teenager, I did not fully appreciate them. However, with getting older comes wisdom, and seeing the big picture, came in full effect by the time I attended university.

Since I love the bold, of course this time I went for a striking patterned style of frames, and took swift night shots with my leopard knit that has been on fashion repeat.

Below is my curated collection of various eyeglasses styles that I am loving at the moment.

If you’re an eyeglasses wearer what are your favourite frames? 

Do you tend to wear bold sunglasses, colourful eye frames, or classic styles, such as wayfarers or aviators?
