Don't Hide Behind Your Hair: Tousled curls are a fantastic way to frame your frames. I get mine with a few twirls of the Sultra curling wand. Regardless of whether I want to secure my beach-y waves or slick back a sleek pony, the one hair spray that I—and every professional hairstylist that I know, for that matter—always stock up on is by Elnett. Either way, oversized Vera Wang sunnies with fun temples are especially perfect for such hair-dos.
Polished + Professional: Take inventory of your favorite go-to office accessories—even snapping a photo of them on your phone before you hit the store could be helpful. Does your everyday bag have gold hardware embellishments? If so, maybe you can find a pair of frames with complementary metallic accents. Do you regularly reach for navy pumps? Glasses featuring a twist on traditional tortoiseshell with unexpected pops of blue could be the perfect finishing touch.
Swanky Lil Chap: Does your darling dude already show signs of having a passion for fashion? If he gladly rocks the adorable outfits you put together for him and digs hitting the mall, then he’s definitely on the right track to becoming a studly style expert! The sky is the limit when it comes to the frames your lil hipster can pull off! Play around with translucent, multi-colored and two-toned washes, trendy Clubmaster-inspired and wayfarer silhouettes, and unexpected materials like denim!
Stylishly Sporty: Pay careful attention to what you need from your frames in the days leading up to your shopping trip. When you are out running, do you feel like your current pair is moving around a tad too much? Would your performance benefit from more protection from the sun by opting for something slightly larger? Make a wish list of five features (one of them can be to perfectly match your snazzy new sneaks—no judgments here!) and bring it with you to the store.
