Picking the perfect glasses with @JeffLackStylist

Want to know how to wear your glasses like a boss? Our style ambassador and Men’s Health Style Editor knows how and he’s here to help you pick out the perfect frame.

There is no denying the power of presentation. If you look good, you feel good too and glasses truly are the ultimate accessory.

Your choice of frames is an extension of your personality a real sneak peek inside who you are. Think about what you're wearing, who you’ll see and how you feel each time you put on your glasses. 

There are rules for selecting the right shape and style of frames for your face shape which will have you looking and feeling good. However, rules are meant to be broken, right? Generally, opposites attract, so if you have an angular face shape, you should choose a rounder frame to balance it out. Keep this in mind, but don’t be afraid to try on something new – it might just surprise you.

There are many ways you can go about finding the perfect frame, I would recommend the following:

There are many ways you can go about finding the perfect frame, I would recommend the following:

  • Think about the occasion, just like when you’re choosing what to wear on your body, what you wear on your face will be the first part of your ensemble seen when meeting people in person.
  • Have a think what type of spec style you are in the market for. Do you want to be understated, contemporary, fashion forward or statement loud? Then match the frame to suit.
  • With our lifestyles packing in more meetings, events and opportunities to dress up, I recommend 2-4 different pairs to alternate between the seasons. This means you will always look and feel your best no matter the occasion. 
  • Make sure you balance the frame style you choose with your outfit for the day. Complement a monochrome outfit with a bold statement frame or go for a classic frame style if your outfit is already the centre of attention.
  • When looking for your next favourite pair of glasses, Specsavers have excellent frame stylists in store and online tools like the ‘Try On’ app that can help.
