Long gone are the days when less-than-perfect vision is a burden. Nothing makes a better, or bolder statement than the classic accessory, especially when said accessory comes in a thick-framed steely blue. Stylish glasses manage to add a dash of intellectual cool to any outfit. But when worn with a particularly fabulous ensemble, the statement is taken to a whole new level.
This Fashionisto has clearly done his research when it comes to rocking chic specs. His glasses are the perfect complement to his lighter blue striped shirt. The glasses manage to amplify the impact of the azure hue without becoming one-dimensionally monochromatic while the subtle contrast between the varied blues and warmer earth tones of his shorts and woven leather loafers provides depth and makes for a winning combination.
Because glasses are an everyday accessory, they should be a shape and color that can work with any outfit. A more neutral color, like this Fashionisto’s gray-tinged blue, works well with the whole spectrum of colors from analogous shades to complementary colors. For instance, these spectacles would look equally dapper with an orange or red shirt and would make a charcoal or traditional black tailored suit all the more sophisticated.
While this Fashionisto’s glasses took his crisply preppy outfit in a wonderful and slightly offbeat direction, glasses can really be adapted to any trend. A polished outfit with streamlined frames is instantly professional, a cat-eye shape is a retro nod and thick tortoiseshell frames are the fashion equivalent of sipping on a latte and reading classic literature in a hidden café. The instantly noticeable quality and inherent functionality of glasses gives them unparalleled stylistic impact with the ability to convey an entire persona in a single glance.
