Blue light glasses are all the rage right now, and for good reason. Artificial blue light from screens such as phones, tablets, and computers can cause dry eyes, headaches, blurry vision, and neck pain. It can also disrupt your sleep by interfering with your circadian rhythms, leaving your body confused about whether it should be awake or asleep.
These clear-lens specs are not just for computer nerds, though. Blue light glasses are great to have on hand this fall. With the shorter fall and winter days, you’ll be increasingly relying on artificial light to make up for the lack of sun. And the best part is that blue light glasses are available in many of the same styles as regular glasses, making them a perfect part of your fall style. Let’s take a look at how to style blue light glasses for fall.
Making a Statement
A statement piece like a pair of glasses is just the thing to stand out this fall. Glasses are an unexpected accessory that will boost your style and make you stand out in a good way. They’re subtle enough that they won’t be the focus of your outfit but unique enough to be noticed.
If you aren’t used to wearing glasses as part of your regular outfit, it can seem overwhelming trying to find the right pair. After all, there are so many different styles and colors available. Here are some tips on how to pick the perfect pair of glasses for fall:
Decide If You Want Rimmed or Unrimmed Glasses
Rimmed glasses are what we most commonly associate with eyeglasses. They have a border around the frame that extends all the way to the lenses. Unrimmed glasses have a frame that stops before the lenses.
Rimmed glasses are more versatile and can be worn in more settings. They’re the most common type of glasses and can be paired with just about any outfit or hairstyle. Unrimmed glasses are best for pairing with a more casual outfit. They also work great with a high bun or ponytail.
Knowing your face shape will help you pick the best color and style of frame for your glasses. If you have a round face, you want to slim down the roundness with a squared-off frame. If you have a square face, you want to add some roundness to create some curves. If you have a long face, you want to add some width to create balance. If you have a heart-shaped face, you want to soften the wide cheekbones and boost the jawline with a round frame.
Choose the Color of Your Frames and Lens Based on the Season
If you’re choosing your frame based on your face shape, that’s great. But if you’re choosing your frame based on your personal preferences, then you might have to tweak your color choice a little to reign it in.
To fit in with fall styles, your frame should have earthy tones such as brown or orange in them. Orange is a warm color, so it will add some warmth to your look which is what you want during the cooler months. Brown is more neutral and will go with any color outfit you’re wearing during the fall.
Find a Frame with the Right Fit
A good pair of glasses should fit your face well and feel comfortable. You don’t want to be constantly adjusting them or feeling like they’re too tight or loose on your face. Make sure the glasses rest on your face instead of your nose. The glasses should hit just below your brow bone. The bridge of the frame should sit on your nose with the lenses resting just above your cheeks.
The glasses should be snug but not too tight. You don’t want them to cause any pain or discomfort, but you also don’t want them to slide around on your face. The frames should rest just above your cheekbones. If they rest on your cheekbones, they’ll be too tight and uncomfortable.
Don’t Forget to Accessorize!
Accessories like scarves, hats, and gloves are a great way to add some extra warmth to your fall outfit. They’ll also help your glasses stand out even more. You can also choose colors that are reminiscent of fall, like orange or brown, when you accessorize.
If you’re wearing a lot of orange or brown in your outfit and want your glasses to stand out, try a different color. If you’re wearing orange in your outfit, try wearing a pair of glasses in blue, purple, or yellow. You don’t necessarily have to match every color in your outfit with your glasses. It can be fun to mix things up a bit and do something unexpected. Dress yourself up while you dress up your blue light glasses!
