You’ve turned your closet inside out to find the perfect outfit. Now, which glasses will you choose?

First, it’s important to have an understanding of your own personal style. Do you like trying new things or do you tend to stick to the basics? Do you like to wear a variety of colors or is your wardrobe more monochromatic? This will help determine the type of eyewear that best suits you.

Secondly, you’ll want to dress appropriately for the occasion. For example, for work-related events like conferences or a big meeting, you’ll want something more refined and classic. On the opposite end of the spectrum, a party might call for something more fun like a unique cat-eye shape or a pop of color.

Once you have an grasp of both of these things, there are three different ways to approach the styling of your eyewear to your outfit:

Go classic

You can never go wrong with a classic, neutral style and shape. It’s a safe bet for any outfit that’ll have you looking stylish no matter what. While there are the standby color options like gold, silver, brown and black frames, you should consider rimless, clear and tortoise shell glasses as well since they also go with everything. As for shape, any of the traditional ones will serve you well.

Go for the unexpected

If you’re open to spicing up your outfit, choose eyewear that adds something a little unexpected that’s the opposite of what you have going on clothing-wise. You could pair a colored frame with a black and white outfit or wear glasses that have an interesting, modern shape with a more simple look.


Lastly, you can also choose to coordinate your eyewear to your outfit. Wearing gold jewelry? Gold glasses will bring the look together. Wearing all green? Green frames will be just the thing to tie everything up.

Whichever way you decide to match your eyeglasses to your outfit, don’t be afraid to try on different combinations to find the look for you!
