Fall is not just for pumpkin spice, baked goods, and boots. It’s also a chance for a fresh, cool look. As the weather gets colder, we can throw on extra layers and show off our favorite fall clothing items, like a jacket or scarf. A new pair of bold frames will complete your look. Or maybe your business is kicking up a notch just before the 4th quarter. A sharp new pair of glasses can make you look polished even when you’re hard at work. The right frames can give you a piercing gaze that conveys you mean business. VisionFirst has the frames to complement and complete your fall wardrobe.
Make a Fashion Statement this Fall
There is immense value in investing in your style. You are more than your wardrobe, but it can be an expression of your interests and values. If you want to be known a certain way, your style can help. It’s like building a brand and being in touch with what your outward self, says about you. Know thyself– the Greek writers taught us.
You may already know a lot about your personal style, but even if you don’t, an optician’s job is to help you find the best frames for your look and lifestyle. Sure, they wear many hats but one of the top priorities of an optician is to be sure you look and feel comfortable in your glasses or contacts. At VisionFirst, our opticians are so committed to this that they do their research on face shape, coloration, style varieties, sizing, and more, in order to be most helpful to you when looking for glasses. After all, there’s no one quite like you! We don’t subscribe to the belief that one type fits all. We offer a wide variety of frames and brands to fit your unique style.
Even if you don’t “need” glasses to improve vision difficulties, you may want to wear non-prescriptive glasses for fun with certain clothes. This style choice is still trendy today. Just ask celebrities like LeBron James.
Tips for Choosing the Best Frames for You
We can give you a few tips for choosing the best frame style for you. However, we never want to generalize or limit your options. Sometimes the best fashion takes risks. That’s why it’s best to go and try frames on with the guidance of an optician. But before scheduling an appointment, here are a few things to take note of at home:
- Take notice of your clothes and which ones you wear most frequently.
- Are those items dressier or more casual?
- Do they fit with a brown and/or earth-tone color scheme or is black and/or cool colors a better match?
- Then take note of the following:
- Size of face
- Facial features like the bridge of your nose and the position and shape of your eyes
- Consider what your best facial feature is and look for glasses that match or repeat it. For example, if you have hazel eyes, frames with golden tones will bring out the golden specks in your eyes.
It’s important to take notice of these features. For example, unless you have a really small head, really small frames may not reach the outer edge of your eye, but the frames will cut right in front of the white of your eye (the sclera.) This not a great look unless you’re channeling Teddy Roosevelt (an icon in many other ways!) So you don’t want frames that are too small for your face.
Many people consider face shape, too, however you’re always free to choose a contrasting style of frame if you want the glasses to stand out versus a frame that looks natural with your face because it blends in with your look.
Get the Help of an Optician
It’s wise to have an Optician help with trying on frames since there’s no way to know how ear height and other factors will impact your desired frames until an Optician adjusts them for you. So, if you are ready for a new Fall look or you’ve avoided glasses for a while but you’re finally ready to embrace this attractive and trendy accessory, make an appointment to work with VisionFirst. We have great Opticians at each of our locations. Of course, you’ll need an updated prescription unless you just want the frames. If you do purchase prescription lenses from VisionFirst before November 4th, we’re offering you the frames for 50% off. We all love getting things for half the price. It’s like adding pumpkin spice to coffee. It just enhances the experience!
Act now! Frames will be 50% off until about the time Halloween costumes become 50% off. So, make out like a person in a bandit costume and take advantage of this opportunity. Embrace Fall and your unique style. You should walk out your door each morning with confidence and coffee, feeling great about what you wear, and most of all, about who you are.
