Your eyewear might be the first thing someone notices about you, so picking a flattering, unique pair is often our customers’ top priority. It’s not just about buying the first pair that looks good, though—aside from budget, you must also consider how the glasses will work with your lifestyle. There are so many choices out there that you should be able to find just the right pair, especially if you stop into Art & Eyes, New Orleans’ best glasses store. Our friendly experts can help you pick the right pair for any lifestyle, personality and budget.
Here is an overview of what you might look for, depending on your criteria:
- For the creative lifestyle: There are no rules here—when you work in a creative profession or want to reflect your artsy style on your face, the sky’s the limit. Try bright and unusual colors, unique shapes or even real vintage frames. We love brightly-colored, thick plastic frames to set the tone, and offer a selection of one-of-a-kind frames that you’ll love.
- For the serious professional: If your job won’t let you get away with the glittery plastic frames of your dreams, look for something more sedate. Metals in neutral colors like silver, black, gold and brown are classic choices, especially when paired with soft rectangular frames. Thin plastic frames in a neutral or subdued color also say “professional” without crossing the line into “boring.”
- For seniors: This isn’t the 1950s anymore—you don’t have to chop off all your hair and wear unflattering glasses when you hit a certain age, so why are you wearing those giant metal frames? If you don’t want to throw caution to the wind and finally get those hot pink cat-eye glasses you’ve been craving, at least look for a glossy pair in a soft or bright color—they offer a sense of vitality and won’t weigh your face down.
- For athletes and active types: You might feel best in a pair of wraparound glasses for your sporting events, or opt for a pair that uses both plastic and metal in the frame. Your goal is to get something sturdy, that can stand up to your activities as well as work for your everyday life.
Of course, many of us have many different facets to our lives and personalities, so we can’t help but suggest getting more than one pair of glasses!
