Industrial frames (Alexa Chung, Rita Ora, Rihanna)
Industrial style glasses are worn as a real fashion statement. The wearer is most likely to flutter her Bambi eyes underneath heavy frames.

She aims to channel the hip-hop cool vibe of Rita Ora and Rihanna by teaming her large black-rimmed frames with bright red lipstick.
MyOptique’s clinical optometrist comments: “This style is great for people with strong features such as wide cheekbones or large lips and eyes. With a strong face shape and features 50s inspired bold styles work best.”
Preppy Frames (Zoe Deschanel)
Preppy oversized frames accentuate the wearer’s delicate elfin features. The preppy girl is calm and collected. She loves wearing vintage finds, rather than fast fashion catwalk looks. She is cool enough to wear the same style glasses as her boyfriend and channels old school chic. She loves art galleries and travelling around the world.
MyOptique’s clinical optometrist comments: “The preppy style is right for you if you have delicate graceful features. Round shaped frames are your best friends.”
Glamour Puss (Dita Von Teese, Miranda Kerr)
Glamour puss girls are most likely to wear glasses that match their lipstick and luxury lingerie. The glamour puss opts for cat-eyed glasses to create a feline look. She looks up to 1950s movie starlets and remains sophisticated wherever she goes, from stylish cocktail bars to theatre shows. She is confident with a mischievous side that everyone longs to see.
MyOptique’s clinical optometrist comments: “The cat-eyed style will suit a diamond face shape with wide cheekbones. Your face shape can pull off quirkier retro shaped frames.”
Studious (Jennifer Aniston)
Most likely to wear glasses to read, drive or study. This wearer sees glasses as a necessity rather than a fashion accessory. She wants her glasses to be simple and subtle so they can be worn on a daily basis to go perfectly with all outfits. She can be found in boardroom meetings taking control. Although she looks like butter wouldn’t melt she can be fiery and feisty and will let you know who is the boss!
MyOptique’s clinical optometrist comments: “Soft and angular specs will suit all face shapes and complexions due to the subtle style. Metal rims are discreet and allow for all day wearing.”
