Glasses are no longer a necessary evil of the vision-challenged. With countless styles, colors, and shapes (not to mention celebs like Jennifer Aniston rocking them in public), eyeglasses have now come to be regarded an accessory, rather than necessity. Online optical retailer Warby Parker is (literally) at your fingertips with hundreds of styles.
Now you can try on as many chic-looking specs as you want—and find the best face-framing pair for you (bonus: the site offers free shipping and returns for those unfortunate impulse buys) Consider these five looks as a reference point so you can feel confident and cool the next time you’re forced to read the fine print.
Coley in Crystal: Ultra clear and ultra fun, some may not even notice you’re wearing glasses when you have these on. Just try not to lose them!
Kimball in Marzipan Tortoise: The bold, marbled design on these look-at-me frames will make a guaranteed statement. Plus, the keyhole-shaped nose bridge is a sharp, eye-catching touch.
Watts in Blue Sapphire: Neutral-toned glasses are so last season. Instead, try a pop of color with this glassy blue setting. Your eyes (and eye makeup) will be sure to stand out more than ever.
Begley in Cedar Tortoise: These super round frames draw just enough attention to your face without being overpowering. And if they happen to make you look super smart in the process, that’s cool too.
Holcomb in Oak Barrel: Cat-eye glasses are the epitome of retro flair, and overall mischievousness. Pair these with a classic red lip (or thick black eyeliner to keep the attention all on your eyes) to play up the vintage shape.
