Retro Style Reading Glasses
What will look good on you?
Retro style reading glasses are not only fashionable but will definitely give your whole look that vintage feel.
Making retro style reading glasses work is very easy! However, you must keep in mind the shape of your face since these glasses come in different sizes. We have the cat eyes, browline, black rimmed, wayfarer, oversized black frames, aviator bifocals, square and round that you can choose from, all retro-style!
Now, as mentioned above, before you get yourself some of these retro style reading glasses, you should consider the shape of your face first. If you don’t know your face shape, look into the mirror with your hair pulled back and you can trace the outline of your face on the mirror with an eye pencil or maybe a light lipstick. If you don’t want to do this, you can just ask your mom or best friend what do they think.
Face shape: Round
For people who have a round face, you can go for frames that are slightly wider than the broadest part of your face. You can go for cat eyes, wayfarers and square reading glasses. Don’t go for round shapes because it will only add an additional width and softness to the shape of your face.
Face Shape: Oval
For people who have an oval face, you can go for round or square frame. There are reading glasses that are very similar with aviators and these will be perfect for you. You can also go for the classic wayfarers! Play around with patterns and colors, you will definitely love it!
Face Shape: Heart-shaped/Triangle
For people who have heart-shaped/triangle faces, you can go for the cat eyes and butterfly designs of reading glasses. Why? Well, these shapes can help balance a narrow jaw line with unswept, wide angles at the top of the frames. Wayfarers would be perfect for this face shape.
Face Shape: Square
Last but not the least, for square faces, you can soften your rectangular jaw line, wide forehead and wide cheekbones with round reading glasses. Cat eyes would be great as well.

There you have it but wait, we’re not done yet! What hairstyles would be perfect for these reading glasses? Well, anything! First of all, you can tie your hair up or you can let it loose or even curl it. There is no specific hairstyle because all hairstyles will definitely look great with the different sizes and styles of reading glasses. If you want to put emphasis on your glasses, why don’t you tie your hair up? When it comes to hairstyles, it’s all up to you! Whatever you feel like. Aside from this, you will normally see if it looks great or not just by simply looking at yourself in the mirror. In fact, it doesn’t really matter what hairstyle you have. It depends on how you are feeling on the day.
