Sometimes it just takes confidence to wear glasses, even when you don't have a prescription

When I was young my eyesight used to be terrible, meaning I had to wear glasses that had the thickest of lenses. I would always be the joke of the table, passing my glasses so everyone could see how blind I was. And when I had to wear them, lets just say I wasn’t spoilt for choice on styles, not that I was particularly bothered at that age.

Now, it’s the complete opposite. There are so many styles and glasses that I think look good and in some cases actually make a person look better. But now I no longer need them I find myself a little envious. With some help from Bailey Nelson I wanted to see how wearing glasses as a fashion accessory could work.

Bailey Nelson is a fun brand that is creating some great designs at a price that isn’t off putting. I chose these Parker cosmic tortoise ones as I think they’ll add a nice touch to my normal casual look.

When it comes to glasses there are a number of shapes, so it’s always best to go in store and try them on to see which shape suits your face shape the best. I was determined to step away from the traditional lens shape that I knew far too well as a kid and went for lenses that were slightly rounded.

Just like adding trilby hat or wearing a couple of rings to your look, what’s wrong with wearing glasses to do this? I’m going to be wearing these when I feel it goes with my outfit, the same thought process when choosing a ring or hat. If it works and adds something different then I’m all for it. I won’t be using the ‘I have to wear glasses for reading’ excuse, but the more blunt, ‘because I think they look good’. Would you wear glasses as an accessory?
