People wouldn’t wear the same pair of shoes every day. Similarly, they wouldn’t wear same shoes on the ball court, in the boardroom, and on the beach (we hope). So why do some people think that they must only have one pair of glasses for every day?
Face it, those who need to wear glasses should be wearing glasses that match their face perfect and convey a right image. Good glasses are a must-have for anyone who wants to look their best, at home, at work, and out on the town.
Once upon a time, you might have gotten by with a basic utilitarian frame that would take you from day to night, but today’s designer glasses come in so many colors, shapes, and materials that it seems almost crazy not to have some fun with your specs by investing in multiple pairs of glasses. It’s all about initial impressions. Glasses are one of the first things people will notice when they look at you, and a great pair of frames can say so much about who you are. Maybe one day you want to show the world you’re sensible and professional, but you’d rather be seen as daring and creative the next.
To put it another way, would you really want to wear the same glasses with your wedding gown as you wear when you’re gardening? Owning multiple pairs of glasses means your glasses are always apropos.
So next time you’re buying frames, think in terms of multiple pairs of glasses. In our own wardrobes, we have at least one classic pair that coordinates with business and formal wear (we like Lindberg) and something a little more fun for when we’re feeling inspired (Face à Face and Cecile by Dino Grossman come to mind).
Are you trying to get by with only one pair of glasses? Have you tried to round out your wardrobe and give it a little pizzazz with two or three eyeglass frames?
