" Elegance is the only beauty that never fades."

Your glasses reflect your style DNA. For some people, choosing a frame that matches their look can be a difficult task, but the most important thing is to be comfortable and feel good with your glasses. Choose a frame that complements your style and suits your personality and needs.
Do you like neutral colours, classic cuts, high heels, and preppy clothes?
The classic look is often associated with Chanel glasses. Refined black frames are often a favourite of fashionistas. Opt for a neutral-coloured frame that will match your entire wardrobe. Dare to wear cat eye frames, which were often worn by movie stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. Choose straight cuts and materials like silk and cashmere.
Do you like flowing materials, pastel colours, ballet flats, and fine accessories?
When you have a feminine look, you should avoid massive frames and too-dark colours that create a very sharp contrast with your style. However, you don’t need to limit your choice to more classic frames. You can wear a larger frame and opt for clear tones and even transparent plastic. That way, your look is delicate, but your glasses add a bit of an edgy touch.
Do you like retro, plaid, and Converse sneakers?
Opt for a retro-style frame a bit like the Ray-Ban style to complement your vintage look. The idea is to keep it simple. Many variations on these frames are available to match your style. To really go retro, choose a black or tortoise shell frame. For a perfect vintage look, opt for a knit cardigan matched with jeans and high boots.
Do you like oversized clothing, bright colours, fragmented patterns, and conspicuous accessories?
The artist look lets you experiment in whatever way you like. Opt for trendy colours and materials for both your clothing and your glasses. Choose coloured frames and dare to wear patterns. Express your creativity. You glasses will be key to your look—and the centre of attention!
