    Picking Out the Best Eyewear Frames (A Quick Guide for Men)

    A Helpful Guide for Men Searching for Designer Reading Glasses

    More than 6 out of every 10 people in America wear glasses or contacts, but many of these folks do not wear the most stylish frames – or anything close! Many men report that they appreciate a little help in choosing the right frames for their glasses. Here are three tried and true tips for men choosing designer reading glasses that will meet your aesthetic needs:

    • When in doubt, opt for black frames. Thick, black plastic frames have become more and more popular with men, especially after being worn by celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Lebron James, and Johnny Depp. This classic and sophisticated look is perfect for general use or designer reading eyewear.

      • Choose the right shape. Round, square, and rectangular glasses can all work; just make sure that whatever style you choose fits your face. If you're buying your first pair of glasses, choose smaller frames. After people get used to seeing you with glasses, you can buy larger frames if you prefer.
      • Consider tortoiseshell for some eccentricity. These frames add some color; just make sure they don't include too much yellow or orange in the pattern. The frames of your glasses should accentuate your features, not stand out on their own.

        Why You Should Wear Sunglasses All Year Long

        why you should wear sunglasses in the winter

        The Importance of Wearing Sunglasses in the Winter

        Wearing bifocal sunglasses in the winter to protect your eyes may seem somewhat paradoxical. After all, once the blistering sun of summer fades to the cooler and less taxing sun of winter, shouldn’t you be able to go outside and enjoy the sun with impunity?

        Unfortunately, this myth – that sunglasses are only needed during the warmer seasons – is pretty destructive. The truth is that harmful UV rays from the sun, the ones that cause eyestrain and eye damage and pave the way for problems like cataracts, stream from our nearest star all year long. They don’t take a “break” during winter. In fact, if you go out skiing or head to a place with substantial snow cover, you must contend with a double-whammy of UV rays. First, you must deal with UV rays emanating from the sun itself. Second, you have to process the UV rays that bounce off the snow and reflect into your eyes.

        If you’re a skier or a snowboarder, you know that you need to wear substantial sun protection on your skin, if you’re going to be on the snow-topped mountain all day, even if it’s below freezing outside. The ambient temperature has nothing to do with the risk for sunburn or dangerous sun exposure. Obviously, you’ll be less likely to burn your back and chest, because you’ll be wearing heavy clothing. But your eyes will still be just as exposed as when you are frolicking on the beach.

        Sunglasses can also provide protection against dust, debris and ambient pollution that can cause irritating symptoms like dry eye syndrome, which affects millions of people every winter.

        Plus, wearing the right sunglasses can seriously add to your fashion cache, too!

        When searching for designer eyeglass frames and sunglasses this fall, keep the season’s hottest trends in mind:

        • Throwback Renaissance. Those seeking a fashionably classic look will love these fresh new frames, which combine old-school sensibilities with new-school style. From round shapes to aviators to Clubmaster-esque frames, these style staples collide with earthy colors such as red, orange, and brown for the perfect fall look.

          • Modern Prep. These ultra-flattering frames range from simple squares to pronounced cat eyes, accentuating the wearer’s features. Colors range from simple pastels to vibrant watercolors, calling to mind the preppy looks of the 60s but remaining firmly in the now. Our Darby Reading Glasses fit this look perfectly!
          • Enigmatic Perspective. When clouds fill the sky and the leaves fall from the trees, it lends a mysterious atmosphere. These frames have the same effect, combining dark, muted colors with touches of opulence, such as I Heart Eyewear’s reading glasses with bling. Animal prints, lace and other artistic patterns are also on-point for the enigmatic perspective look! Our Dahlia Readers (below) and Catarina Reading Glasses are spot-on with this trend.
