Like men’s eyeglasses, women’s eyeglasses are also available in a wide range of sizes and shapes. Among various options, women should keep in mind what they want when shopping for personal eyeglasses. First is the basic style: delicate or bold, retro or modern, conservative or fashionable. Most optical stores have special sections for current fashion trends. The second factor is the period of your eyeglass wear, part-time or full-time. Color is also a very important element of eyeglasses. Since every individual has a warm or cool coloring, eyeglasses should match personal coloring and face shape.
The Vision Council has ever carried out a study, which revealed that women appreciate eyeglass look more than other factors such as comfort, fit and durability. It is reasonable because women are more aware of their appearance. However, eyeglasses require more consideration than simple look. In is obvious that comfort and fit are also quite important for women’s eyeglasses. There are some situations that some women may experience uncomfortable or unfit eyeglasses. Appealing frames may slide off your nose, which requires temples adjustment. Some frames are too narrow or wide that they do not fit your face. In this case, you must switch to another frame size. Uncomfortable nose pads also need proper adjustment.
In addition to comfort and fit, women should also take into account durability in choosing eyeglasses. A frame that falls apart within several months is disappointing both to men and women. It is hard to distinguish poorly-made frames from well-constructed ones. Customers should consult opticians about durability of certain types of eyeglasses.
Eyewear is more than a medical device. Except for bottom-of-the-barrel ones, most eyeglass frames last a long time. However, some people do not like to wear a single pair of eyeglasses every day. In fact, women are more likely to keep more than a pair of eyeglasses for additional different appearances. They always like to visit eyeglass sales such as “two-for-one” and “buy-on-get-one-half-off”. For people on a tight budget, plenty of frames that are fit for everyday wear are also provided.
In spring and summer 2009, there are several current frame trends for women. Frames from Spyder, Mariella and Burani provide rock star look that enables you to embrace your inner “wild child”. Menizzi and Kay Unger offer daring and high fashion look frames that are prevailing in international circles. Frame styles from Brendel and Nicole Miller feature feminine flourishes.
