You look great in glasses!


Anyone who wears glasses loves to hear that compliment. Your glasses will look even better when they are chosen to complement your current outfit. But how do you choose the right frames? What goes best with each outfit? There are so many options to choose from and it can become a little overwhelming if you don’t know where to start.


Our guide to pairing glasses with outfits for different occasions should help get you started. Read on to learn how to select the right frames for your outfit.

Different Glasses for Different Occasions

Your eyewear should not be an afterthought as you get ready for the day’s events. They’re an integral part of your outfit! Eyeglasses can be a perfect complement to any outfit, you just need to consider the options available.


Date Night

Date night is a good time to show off your style a bit. Classic cat eye frames are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to fancier outfits. Dare to indulge in a touch of luxury and get classic frames perfect for the theatre, the orchestra, or the finest of dining. Meanwhile, bold frames are a daring choice that shows off your personality. Sleek metal frames offer a more sophisticated look. Both of these options also go great with a more casual look of jeans and a nice top.



For the more laid-back moments in everyday life, having casual frame choices allows you to feel relaxed and in your element. Round glasses are perfect if you’re after a more casual and relaxed vibe. Oversized frames provide a trendy and effortless look that goes well with leggings or joggers for a casual and comfy outfit. Square frames offer a sportier look that goes great when you’re heading to the gym.


Hanging with Friends

Hanging out with your friends can mean an even more casual look. For something like this, round frames or square frames are supreme. Jeans and a T-shirt or other casual top plus these frames make for a great look! Aviators are a classic option that offer an iconic look when you pair them with a stylish jacket. Consider your lens options too; certain enhancements like transition lenses will help you effortlessly keep your look for an all-day, all-night hangout!



Professional environments demand professional frames. Consider more subtle frames, minimalistic and elegant for pairing with professional work outfits so you can impress everyone in the office. Minimalism provides sleek lines and muted tones that work in any professional environment.


Night on the Town

Getting ready for a night out on the town? Time to break out your fun and stylish outfits! Whether you’re looking for something colourful or something more subtle, finding the right frames is the perfect way to complete your outfit.
