Glasses are Hip!

Now, if you have looked over our warning signs for eye problems you will most likely see one or two symptoms that you are experiencing. Now, if you are like me, the thought of wearing bifocals, reading glasses or driving glasses is not a pleasant one.  Reading Glasses normally correlates with thoughts of ugly, cheap glasses that are comparable to a school librarian. However, this is no longer the case.  As more and more women need reading glasses, a list of reading glasses that are youthful but sophisticated, as well as chic and playful was assembled.  You will no longer dread putting on your reading glasses to read on your commute to work or a menu while out to dinner with a group of people.


Yes the same cat-eye frames that were popular in the 1960s and 1970s and seen on Frenchy in the movie Grease, are making a comeback in today’s popular culture.  Top designers like Ray-Ban, Persol and Betsy Johnson are re-creating these retro frames.  Bring these with you on your next group outing and count the complements you receive on these resurrected frames.


Rounded frames, also known as bug-eye glasses, are also being resurrected this year.  These vintage frames became popular in the mid-1970s as the successor of the cat-eyes.  Now both are back in the mainstream spotlight. The round frames have been worn by various glamorous celebrities such as Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren.  They are both considered a classical and contemporary look.


Aviators have been relevant since Tom Cruise rocked them in Top Gun. They truly are a timeless classic in the glasses industry.  With various sizes and shapes, one should have no issues finding a pair that compliments the features that make you beautiful, rather than hiding them.  If you like the semi-rimless look, you will be pleased to find out that they are available in aviator frame designs.

Sun Readers

If you are an outdoorsy woman and imagine that you will be spending a decent amount of time outside this fall and winter, you will want to make sure you stock up on a pair of Sun Readers.  Sun Readers are exactly what they sound like, a combination of reading glasses and sun glasses.  They’re perfect for reading a book while watching your kids play outside or while looking at a map on a road trip. You can find them in the top designer names at or in Lenscrafters Stores, in a wide range of frame designers.  No one will be able to tell that the sun readers are reading glasses as they look exactly like sunglasses.

Hopefully, this guide got you over the dreaded feeling you get when thinking about wearing glasses. Everyone from NBA players to movie stars are proudly displaying their frames, so now is the time to be kind to your eyes and find the frames that compliments your face.

Are you surprised to see some of these retro frames relevant again?
