Frames of Youth? How Glasses can make you Look Younger

Unless you’ve found the Holy Grail or been blessed with the genetics of Meryl Streep, you’re probably wondering how to turn back the clock to when you were actually 21.

And there’s an instant, Botox free way to do it – Glasses!

Yes, they’ve been accused of adding years to your face but sporting the perfect pair of specs can actually do the opposite. Here’s a few tips for choosing frames that, like a fine wine, will help you get better with age:

1. Camouflage those Creases

When it comes to ageing, your eyes are one of the first to give in to Mr Time. If you’re cursed with wrinkles, dark circles or baggy eyes, steer clear of rimless specs and try a pair of thick larger ones for size. They’ll quickly cover up any nasties and draw attention to your gorgeous eyes instead. For those seeking maximum coverage, oversized sunnies work a charm (and come with UV protection- bonus anti-ageing points!).

We recommend the Dexter or Half Bench for those looking to make a statement in the office with the pink Thistle Sisters for some casual Friday fun.

2. Catch eyes with Cat-Eyes

Like a cat’s nine lives, these retro glasses are renowned for their youthful powers. The frame’s upswept outer edges will highlight the bone structure of any face shape, gifting you with an instant face-lift as well as a few jealous friends 😉

Edna and Sophisticat are perfect for glasses newbies looking to get out of their (tortoise)shell whilst the 70s style Liquorish Allsorts will please sweet tooths and nostalgics alike.

3. Show your True Colours

If ageing gracefully à la Jennifer Aniston is on your wish list, it’s time to ditch the dull metallic frames and give a fiery red or Deep Blue pair a go. Colourful glasses can add warmth, softness and a bit of fun to your face, especially when matched with the colour of your eyes, hair or outfit. It’s always handy to have a few different coloured pairs to accessorise with (and like shoes, you can never have too many!).

Try translucent gems like the Toffee Apples or Blue Steel to test the waters or go bold with the Red Baron.
