Have you ever met someone who was actually quite attractive and intelligent but ended up looking dowdy or awkward because their glasses were just wrong for them?

It’s not hard to find a pair of designer glasses that look great, but it’s also easy to forget that our glasses can impact how others perceive us. In other words, your glasses shouldn’t just look great – they should also match your face, fit your image and maybe even say something special about who you are.

Eyeglasses can enhance or detract from your personality, depending on the style. Because the face is the first thing people look at, an accessory like glasses will say so much more about you than your shoes or most other accessories.They are just very visible and everyone looks at your face when they greet you or speak with you so you can’t avoid them noticing your glasses.

Just any pair of designer glasses that look great on our shelves may turn necessarily be a match for your face and may just not be exactly the style that you’re looking for. And the pair you overlooked? Those frames might just be you.

So before you shop, think about what personality traits you want your glasses to bring out. Do you consider yourself to be a fun and high-fashion personand you want the world to know that? Or are you looking for a conservative executive with a calculated image? Would you rather be seen as sophisticated or stylish, or both? Youthful or conservative? Retro and vintage or modern style? It’s up to you because there are glasses for every personality type.

When you buy glasses, do you choose frames that emphasize who you really are or frames thatshow who you want to be? Or just have several eyeglass frames and then choose one of them depending what you feel like that day.
