Q&A: Funky Yet Functional Glasses Frames

Q:  Do you have any tips on new glasses frames? I want something that will last for a year or so. I work in a design firm, so something funky isn’t out of the question, but I’d like something that that I can wear all the time.

Kate Spade Bailey Glasses FramesA:  Most tips surrounding glasses frames center around balancing out your facial features to get closer to the "ideal" oval shaped face.  In a nutshell, we advise those with round faces to look for more angular frames and those with more angular faces to seek rounder frames.

Since you work in a design firm, you’re probably looking for a pair of frames that’s not only functional but also a bit edgy.  We’d recommend looking for:

(1) Angular frames, no matter what your face shape.  We do, however, suggest taking your face shape into account and recommend a slightly less angular frame for those with heart or square face shapes.
(2) Thicker frames for a bolder, more confident look. 
(3) Colored frames, if you dare.  We like reddish brown for its wearability and inherent edginess.

Two brands to check out–Kate Spade for retro-chic frames and Gucci for bold, angular styles.
