Her Majesty is widely known for her classic and polished style, always favoring her tried and tested staples of dress suits, pearls, block colors and headscarves.

When it comes to her glasses, she likes to keep it simple yet elegant. The Queen has been wearing Silhouette frames since the 1980s, and often opts for round lenses with a clean vintage style.

Her current pairs are made from a lightweight, semitransparent plastic and are the perfect mix between classic style (which pairs well with anything) and reflects her personality.

It frames her eyes perfectly without harsh lines. Metal and solid plastic frames often fit well on the older wearers.

SelectSpecs is currently selling the Silhouette TMA Icon (8130) was inspired by Her Majesty’s glasses:

Princess Margaret & Princess Diana

Awhile, the late Princess Diana has been a style icon on her right. Looking through her pictures, in the 1980s and 1990s she was fond of wearing a pair or wayfarers or Jackie Onassis inspired sunglasses.
