Do you like the way that clear glasses look on other people, but you’re just not sure what they’re doing right? Clear glasses can look great on anyone, you just need to know a few tricks of the trade.
Lucyd knows all of the tricks, and we’re here to help. In this post, we will look at how you can style clear glasses to look your best.
What are clear glasses?
First things first, what exactly are we talking about here? Clear glass is standard, as prescription glasses and reading glasses are commonly seen, and almost always look great, as bold frames and dark colors set off the clear glass easily.
When we speak of clear glasses, though, we’re actually talking about clear glass set against a clear frame. No color is involved, so it isn’t quite as easy to pull off. However, one of the big pluses of this style is that your frames will never clash with your outfit! Plus, these glasses don’t pull attention away from your facial features.
Tips for wearing clear glasses
Without further ado, here are the things to focus on when choosing the right pair of clear glasses for you:
Find the right shape for your face
One of the most important aspects of finding the perfect pair of glasses is choosing the right shape for your face. This is doubly important when you’re choosing clear frames.

If you’re in a rush to find your perfect pair, keep in mind that rounder clear glasses tend to suit more angular faces best. If you have a rounder face, consider clear frames that are more rectangular or square.
Another thing to think of is the size of the glasses themselves. While transparent frames don’t distract from the features of the face, they should still not hide your brows. This is a common rule of thumbs for glasses, but it is particularly important when considering clear glasses, as darker frames can create a pseudo brow, while clear ones will simply obscure it.
Consider what you will wear with clear glasses
Clear glasses are very versatile, but they do lend themselves best to certain colors. Styling your clear glasses with lighter colors will look really great. Pastel colors and neutral tones highlight the frame despite the transparency.
If you prefer to wear darker colors, keep in mind that when wearing these frames with darker tones, the frames tend to blend into the color of the outfit you’re wearing. This can also look great, and is appreciated for its versatility, but the frames will then not stand out on your face.
Choose the right accessories
Have you been waiting for a reason to wear your trilby or beret? This is your chance, as clear frames are very well suited to hats. Because of their versatility and subtlety, they can be paired with other bold accessories, while other glasses can clash quite disastrously.
With clear glasses, you can also wear bold necklaces, or even choose a strong lip color. There are plenty of interesting options to embrace when you wear the right pair of clear glasses.
Ready to choose your frames?
Now that you know how to choose and style your clear glasses, you should be ready to take the plunge. It may be useful to consider shapes that have suited you in the past, and choose a clear version of that shape. Whatever you choose, we are sure that you’ll look great!
