Whether you wear full prescription lenses or everyday cheaters, glasses are an everyday accessory that can easily approach the “blah zone” if you’re not privy to the sweet new styles of reading glasses available.
While my eyes are not yet ready for cheaters (though yes, I do have a very strong glasses/contacts prescription), I’m ready to have a little fun with eyewear on days when I want to play up my look and add bold color to my face without risking 1) lipstick on my teeth or 2) regrettable eye shadow choices.
Foster Grant, which has been around since the late ’20s, is one of the fashion-forward brands leading the way in trendy reading glasses at an affordable cost — hello, reading glasses wardrobe expansion!
I’m thinking that a few fun pairs in a very weak prescription may be safe to keep around the office for those late nights staring at the computer screen or reading things printed on dead trees in low light.
At $30 or less, you really can snag a few pairs to build out an eclectic collection. The styles above are just a few of my favorites! What colors/patterns do you like?
Of course, I was immediately drawn to the neutral, easy-to-wear colors (aka black and white), but after paging through the lookbooks a little more, found that I loved the reds, fuschias and even the blues that would bring out my big brown eyes.
A few jewels and embossing didn’t hurt, either.
What’s fabulous about Foster Grant, too, is that it’s readily available — you can swing into your local drugstore or discount retailer (Walgreens or Wal-Mart if you’re in Kansas City like me!) to pick up a few pairs.
While you’re there, you may even see some cute pics of the legendary Brooke Shields (I swoon over her brows!) rocking her Foster Grants, too — she’s the gorgeous new face behind the brand!
I would love to see your gorgeous face in your funky reading glasses — want to show me? Instagram your best “girl in glasses” pic for me to see (just tag me @kimberlyloc on Instagram). I’ll share mine, too!
