Tips for Women on Buying Glasses

For a woman, glasses can be an important part of her style. There are so many different frames, styles and designs to pick from that it can sometimes be a tough choice which pair is perfect. Looking at glasses online or in store can be overwhelming sometimes if you don’t know what you need to look for, so here are some tips to help any lady find the right style in the women’s glasses department!

Know what you want
There are so many choices for glasses that it can be overwhelming sometimes. If you are going to buy a new pair of glasses, look into what the store or online store that you are buying from has, and think about what you want. Even if you don’t know exactly, that is fine. Just have a rough idea to narrow down the playing field a little.

Know what fits your face
Women are usually pretty good about knowing when they look hot or not, and that’s important to know when it comes to buying womens glasses. The shape of your face takes a big part in finding out what fist your face. Below, we have a small guide:

FACE SHAPE GLASSES SHAPE
Heart-shaped face Rimless frames
Round faces Rectangular frames
Square faces Oval and round frames
Narrow faces Tall and decorative frames
Trapezoidal faces Half-rim or cat eye frames
Oval faces Thick at the top frames

Know your prescription
It is important when buying glasses either online or in store that you know your prescription so that the glasses will be right for your eyes. If they do not match your prescription exactly, you might have problems with headaches, facial pain and worse vision. Go to the eye doctor before you go shopping for glasses in order to get the best pair for your eyes.

Think about your everyday style
Women tend to take a lot of care into thinking about their clothing and style. When picking out eyeglasses, you want to make sure you pick something that fits your style and overall day-to-day wardrobe. If you pick some red frames because your red shirt looks great with them, tomorrow’s outfit of blue and green might not look so great. Make sure you get something that will match, while still showing your awesome, unique style!

Think about your price range
Price is always a point of concern because nobody wants to “break the bank” while paying for glasses. There is a significant difference in price between buying in store or online, so this is something to think about. Buying women’s glasses online can be a great option because there are many more different styles and colors than there would be in store.Wherever you decide to buy them though, there will be different price options. If you have insurance for glasses, look into your policy to see the coverage and think about what you can afford on top of that. This will narrow down your search to a smaller array of options in glasses.
