Colour Psychology in Fashion: What Does the Colour of Your Glasses Say About You?

The clothes we wear and the accessories that we choose to adorn ourselves with are much more than aesthetics. As someone who has worked in the fashion industry for a long time, I believe that fashion isn’t frivolous. It’s a part of who we are. It’s art. It’s life. And it’s self-expression.

Clearly one video is not enough to try and express how many frames are on offer at – and so I’ve been sent more frames for me to try on and criticise! Well, criticise I tried, but it proved quite hard (again) to nit pick any of these frames that are all under £70.

Just because the sun isn’t tanning your pale limbs, doesn’t mean it’s any less powerful.

It’s important to remember that UV rays are present every day and you need to be safe in the sun all year round including the cooler months.

Motherly nag out of the way, the burning question on everyone’s lips right now:...   read more

Choosing The Right Frames For Your Face Shape

The wide variety of different styles and shaped glasses make choosing the right pair no easy task. As well as supporting your vision with quality lenses, your glasses should fit effortlessly with your personal style and reflect your personality.

The first step starts with determining your face shape. Is it round, oval, oblong, triangular, square, heart or diamond shaped? If the answer isn’t immediately obvious, ask for a second opinion from a friend or family member or take a selfie of yourself facing directly into the camera to get a better idea.

With that in mind here are a few tips for choosing...   read more

Top 3 Budget Frames for Fashion

Glasses can be expensive, with high end designer frames going from around £100 upwards but they can be a great investment if you heavily rely on glasses. However, for those of you as clumsy or as fussy as I am, then budget frames can be the way forward because cheaper frames can easily be replaced which is a huge bonus. I am also an avid fashion lover so my style changes and evolves constantly. I would therefore love to have the option to own a frame for every outfit and buying numerous budget frames allows me to achieve that.

Here is my pick of the top 3 most fashion forward frames that also...   read more
