Glasses have always been associated with intelligence and accomplishments. When I think of glasses, I think of Elle Woods taking on Harvard Law School. I think of Harry Potter saving Hogwarts from he-who-must-not-be-named year after year. Glasses are an accessory that exude a go-getter and a no nonsense attitude.

This Fashionista’s look is the perfect combination of classic and edgy. She takes vintage-inspired frames and pairs them with more modern pieces to create a style all her own. The warm brown, cat eye glasses accentuate her tan skin and red lip providing an effortlessly put together look. Her heather gray top, cream wedge booties and pearl chain necklace are the perfect match for her leather paneled pants. Even though it’s always been said that brown and black shouldn’t be mixed, this Fashionista knows how to break the rules in the most stylish way possible.

Even if you’re not an ivy league student or fighting the dark arts, glasses are still a viable asset to any ensemble. Combining function and fashion, glasses are the perfect way to accessorize your face and add a touch of sophistication to your outfit. Glasses come in a variety of colors, shapes and styles. Whether it be classic black frames, a fun pattern or a bold color, there is a pair of glasses to fit every occasion and personality.

How to: When choosing a pair of glasses make sure to consider your skin color, face shape and personality. Don’t be afraid to go with a bold color or unique style!
