You’ve probably noticed that in virtually ever picture I’m wearing either glasses or sunglasses, and that’s mainly because I can’t see without them and I’m not very good with contacts. But they’ve also become something of a signature look for me. Eyewear is an easy thing to make your own since it can be worn with pretty much anything anytime and, if you want, it can really define your look…think Yves Saint Laurent with his chunky black frames.
Glasses are quite personal and no doubt certain frames look great on some people and ridiculous on others. After lots of searching, trying on, and debating, I’ve settled in with Tom Ford for both my eyeglasses and sunglasses. Although the two shapes are much different, both pairs are the same shade of tortoise shell (Light Havana, as it’s called by Mr. Ford). This color seems to work pretty well with my pale complexion, as I’ve found that black and other dark colors are too severe on my face. Also, plastic frames tend to be a bit bolder than their wireframe counterparts to begin with. So, my farsighted friends, there is no need to be jealous of your 20/20 counterparts…just go out and find a pair of glasses that make your vision impairment a style solution!
