Did you ever consider that your eyeglasses may be the first thing someone would notice when they meet you for the first time?
You might think people would look at your new shoes or your tie, your dress or clothes or hair or other more things first.But it’s almost impossible not to look at someone’s face or eyes when you see them. And if you wear glasses, your specs are going to be a big part of that first impression.
That means that when you’re buying glasses, you should be thinking about not only what frames look good on you, but also the impression your frames will give people who are meeting you for the first time. When people come to Vizio Optic to learn more about buying designer glasses, we like to recommend that they think of eyewear in terms of creating a signature look.
What’s a signature look? It’s the sum of your style, your accessories, and the way you carry yourself that says to the world “I am me! I am X, Y, or Z!” How do glasses fit into a signature look? Think about the chunky frames worn by designer Yves Saint Laurent – what did his glasses say about him? Or if you meet someone wearing glammed-up cat’s eye frames, how does that change your first impression of them?
Because your glasses play such a large role in that first impression people form, it pays to choose frames carefully. To give you a more concrete idea of what we mean, here are four designer frames along with the first impression they might convey:
The person wearing these Alain Mikli glasses is most definitely fun and fashionable. She or he probably has a vibrant and outgoing personality.
Anyone who chooses these Christian Roth frames has got to be smart, secure, and responsible because it’s such a mature, intelligent style of glasses.
If you’re wearing the Vue DC Art, people will regard you as being geek chic – in other words fashionably intelligent, not a slave to fashion. You may even be taken for an Andy Warhol devotee.
Now ProDesign glasses are some of our favorites in the first impressions department because from the front they say ‘responsible adult’ but from the side they say ‘I’m still one of the cool kids!’ That definitely keeps people guessing!
