So you’re eyesight isn’t what it used to be, but in that frustrating truth hides a stylish blessing. In your twenties you wore non-prescription frames to look intelligent, sophisticated, and mysterious. Your thirties were littered with lost sunglasses that cost a weeks pay. Now that you’re in your forties, you no longer need to put on an aura of sophistication, and you always know where your sunreaders are kept. It’s time to choose your frames the same way you choose your shoes; both are a necessity, as well as the key piece to any outfit.
Any fashion queen knows that a high price tag is no indicator of a well-placed accessory’s affect on an outfit. Style demi-god Iris Apfel said, “Fashion you can buy, but style you possess.”
Your life is full and colorful, crazy and exceptional, why not your eyewear? Blessedly, online shopping has given the gift of well-priced, and terribly interesting eyewear. The days of one, lone pair of black frames are long gone.

For the Working Week
For instance, a busy weekday can cause a woman of substance and elegance to throw fashion out the window in favor of comfort and simplicity. However, substituting quick and easy for fabulous is not as time consuming as it once was.
Iris preaches, “If your hair is done properly and you’re wearing good shoes, you can get away with anything.” We agree, with the addition of frames that correspond with you’re your pumps, flats or boots.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one is considered stylish amongst their friends, it is the highest of honors. A ladies weekend at the coast requires one flattering swimsuit, one luxurious, sheer cover up, and oversized ‘say something’ sunglasses that allow you to enjoy that steamy novel beachside.
The educated woman knows that the sun is not her friend, and protecting eyes from UV damage (while looking swanky) is of the upmost importance. For evenings, a pop of color to grace your face while reading an enviable seafood menu will bring your look from effortless to chic.
You’re dressing for a date night, a much easier task now that the kids are off to university. Although you may be heading a restaurant that is an old favorite, it is always the goal to turn heads, one in particular. You’ve got the dress, the jewelry, and the appetite; it’s time to don some statement cat eyes with baby rhinestones. After all, you want to sparkle. As Iris says, “Life is grey and dull; you might as well have a little fun when you dress.”
Evenings At Home
‘Netflix and Chill’ isn’t just for the kids you know! You need your time as a lounge lizard binging on The Great British Bake Off. Brightly colored, or patterned specs can cheer up even the most loved pair of sweat pants. So cuddle up and try not to crave too much victoria sponge.
All right four-eyes, you’re bringing book club to a new level by exhibiting vintage spectacles to compliment this month’s novel. The other readers may not notice the subtle gesture, but you know, and that’s all that matters. You also know, that if the leading lady of your literary work could see you, she’d certainly choose you to advise her in her next romantic tryst.
It is undeniable that all accessories are imperative in creating the perfect ensemble. But what could be more natural than spicing up an item that is a necessity to you? Eyewear is the most visible, and sadly underused form of chic expression.
Consider this, the more interesting frame options you have available, the more you’ll begin to form your wardrobe based around your foremost facial decoration. Our beloved Iris would agree, “When you don’t dress like everyone else, you don’t have to think like everyone else.”
