Tips & Tricks To Look Sexy In Glasses for women

So the visit to the eye doctor gave you a pair of unwanted spectacles leaving you feeling like you’re on the receiving end of a prison sentence rather than just a prescription. Males and females alike dread being prescribed powered eye glasses for various reasons and the most prominent of them being, their fear of hampering their appearance as it is generally a preconceived notion that their appearance will be negatively affected by wearing eye-glasses. Empirical evidence shows that this has caused many to not even give spectacles a shot and thereby, they ended up causing more harm to their precious eyes. This article will focus on how girls can look gorgeous in glasses while giving their eyes what they need. I cannot stress the importance of wearing powered glasses when prescribed by the eye doctor. Therefore, this article is all about alleviating this groundless presumption as I will show you how to look sexy in glasses.

Gone are the days of ugly and unflattering looking eye glasses which only deteriorated the appearance of the wearer. Eye glasses are now worn by many women not only when they need to wear them but also for fashion purpose. A pair of glasses can in fact be what is needed to add that sexy hint to the look.

Misconception about Glasses:

Hides the beauty of the eyes: Like everything in life, there is a right and a wrong way of wearing glasses. It is a misconception that wearing glasses hides the beauty of the eyes. Big framed glasses can actually accentuate the eyes rather than hiding them. The following photographs of gorgeous girls in eye spectacles will clear this misconception:

Girls who wear eye glasses cannot show-off their eye makeup: This is utter nonsense! Big round or square or oval shaped glasses can easily and properly show-off beautifully made up eyes. Big framed glasses actually accentuate the eyes in a very becoming way. I personally find that there is only one drawback of wearing glasses and makeup, which is wearing lots of mascara, as the eye lashes keep on touching the glass and that can sometimes be irritating. But hey, a little discomfort is nothing right?

Glasses are boring and nerdy: Nerdy is not always a bad thing. The right amount of “nerdy” is actually sexy, like the school teacher kind of sexy. These bold, thick framed glasses on girls is just too gorgeous for words. To think that wearing glasses would make a girl look boring and nerdy is beyond comprehension. Find below photographs of glasses that girls can wear to look smoking hot in nerdy:

How to look Sexy in Spectacles:

Cat’s eye glasses: Cat lovers and others alike can go for the very smoky hot look that cat’s eye glasses can add to the appearance. Cat’s eye glasses are at the top of my list of eye glass shapes to look sexy. However, these catty reading glass frames are also referred to as librarian glasses. Don a pair of kitty cat glasses with bold red lips and any girl is ready to face anything.

Colourful frames: Who says eye glasses have to be dull and boring. Keep a few colourfully framed glasses to suit different moods and occasions. Some women prefer wearing bright coloured frames on a regular basis. Choose the right type of eye glass frame that makes you feel most comfortable.

So we all know of a handful of common spectacle frame shapes like round shaped reading-glasses, cat’s eye glasses, square shaped specs, etc. But do we actually know what different shapes of frames for eye-wear represent: Check out the what each different shape of frames for glasses reveal about the personalities of the spectacle wearer below:

How to choose the right frame for eye-glasses:

Therefore, depending on the look the lady wants to achieve when wearing her spectacles she can decide on the eye glass frame shape. If the wearer has big eyes and she wants to flaunt her eye colour and frame the eyes in a becoming manner, she should wear large frames, like the 80/s over sized eye-glass frames, so that the view of her eyes are clear and the frames of the glasses frame her eyes keeping considerable distance. If she wants to minimize the presence of the frames as much as possible she can actually go for frame-less eye glass or eye glasses which only has a border on the top. For women wanting to create a bold and sexy look, she should wear thick dark framed specs.

I am sure that after seeing these photographs of women in various shapes of eye-glass frames and how gorgeous and sexy these ladies look wearing glasses the misconception about spectacles have been dispersed.

I've worn glasses since I was 9 years old and have tried many different styles of frames in the four plus decades since then. My tastes changed and eye glass technology changed a lot since that first pair of practical black frames. My wife chooses to wear contact lenses though she still has to wear reading glasses with them. She has a lot of fun picking out frames for her reading glasses. always trying new looks and styles.

Thanks for a well developed and informative Hub.

Hi Davis, thanks a lot for commenting and stopping by my hub. It is indeed a lot of fun to try out different types of frames. I am a big fan of coloured contact lenses but even then there is a separate charm to wearing spectacles, especially when it's colourful.
