Black = the most common fashion shade. Glasses = a widely accepted fashion accessory. Black + glasses = Black frames, the perfect accessory for every outfit!
Since everyone needs a pair of LBGs in their wardrobe (in fact, why just the one pair?), here’s a whole blog post honouring this fashion must-have.
Sure, black frames are bold, but they are extremely versatile and will go with more than one thing in your wardrobe if you just give them a try.
Black glasses: How to wear them
Acetate black glasses frames suit both ladies and gents. The wayfarer shape in black is hipster ironic. Round in black is a statement for the fashion forward. For women, aim for geek chic rather than too OTT. A smaller black plastic frame has the same bold impact as a nerd-fest frame (think Clark Kent pulling off cute journalist with a touch of geek). Try the Mayor.
If black is looking a bit severe, our customised 3D-printed frames come in a range of colours. The black pair have a somewhat rugged, sandy texture and they wear nicely – as in, over time, they start to look increasingly ‘distressed’ by fading in the sun. Try the Archer.
‘Wood’ you prefer something a bit more Mother Earth? Something Nordic but nice? We’ve a range of faux and real wood frames, particularly the pairing of black fronts with wooden arms. They’re office-friendly but give you the edge. Try the Blackcurrant Phaser with matte acetate at the front and real bamboo arms.
Metal black frames (a good name for a death-metal band?!) are a more subtle way to try a bold yet colour-neutral frame. If you’re under 30, steer clear of gunmetals and brown metal frames – they’re too old for you! Black is your go-to if you don’t want colour. Try the Wool Spinners.
If your wardrobe is already looking a bit black hole-esque, accessories are a great place to start adding a flash of colour, including glasses! Black and conservative from the front, but with a head-turning party theme on the sides when you go for a pair with coloured arms. Try the Photographer.
