How do I style round-framed glasses?
Round-framed glasses, associated with the hippie era of the 1970s, used to be deemed as old-fashioned. But with more South Korean celebrities donning the accessory recently, it is safe to say that they are cool again.
South Korean actress Suzy and pop star, entertainer and designer Jessica Jung have made the once-nerdy frames chic, having been spotted wearing wire-rimmed versions of the round frames.
Apart from oval-shaped faces, which can carry off all sorts of spectacle frames, round-framed glasses also suit those with square-shaped faces – the roundness of the frames helps to balance out a strong jaw.
Mr Eddie Tan and Mr Jerial Tan, co-founders of home-grown eyewear brand Visual Mass, share some tips on how to pull the accessory off:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Round-framed glasses go with any look – match the colour of your glasses to your outfit. A stark black frame is simple and evergreen, and is a statement accessory.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Round stainless-steel frames go best with denim as the pairing has a timeless casual vibe, while dark tortoiseshell frames are more businesslike.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ For a modern take on the 1970s hippie vibe, opt for round-framed sunglasses with tinted lenses.
