If you wear glasses, you may have (sometime in the past) chosen the cheapest frames you could find. Stylish glasses for women used to be expensive, hard to find, or not available in a color that fits your wardrobe. Well, those days are long gone. Venture beyond the selection at your local Optometrist and get yourself a pair of cute, trendy, and stylish glasses frames!
Step Aside, Prescriptions!
Glasses have come so far from being a focal point for bullies that they’re almost indispensable as a fashion accessory. Sunglasses exploded into popularity among celebrities in 1937, when Ray-Ban began selling tinted aviator lenses to the public. Now, almost everyone owns at least one pair of sunglasses, even if they don’t need corrective lenses.
Recent trends have seen blue-light glasses pop up almost everywhere. You can get blue-blocking coatings added to prescription lenses, or buy lenses with no Rx and just the filter. Since glasses are already a style statement, many people take the opportunity to choose trendy frames for their blue-blocking lenses, reducing their exposure to blue light while staying in style.

Different frames look good on different facial shapes, and while it seems confusing, it’s really quite simple.
