Men’s Style Guide for Wearing Glasses & Looking Great

Growing up, I hated wearing glasses. I remember being in fifth grade, and apparently my grades had been suffering or there were other signs that I couldn’t see the chalkboard, and my parents finally made me get glasses.

I hated them. They were ugly, clunky and I did everything I could to avoid wearing them.

Never did I imagine that 20 years later, I would be so proud to show off my glasses. Back when I was growing up, companies like Zenni didn’t exist. Affordable, great looking eyewear available to anyone, anywhere thanks to the Internet.

I’ve partnered with Zenni to tell their story. They believe everyone should have access to high-quality, stylish eyewear. They have the largest selections of affordable glasses online, plus they provide prescription glasses delivered straight to your door, as well as sunglasses for men, women, and children.

Men’s Glasses Style Tips

When it comes to glasses, I believe you should pair your glasses style with your outfit, and with pairs so affordable you definitely should have more than one pair.

I went with a classic wayfarer style to pair with my suit, along with a more modern clear frame that you can see looks just as good wearing on a run by the water. The easiest way to figure out what glasses should be in your arsenal is to take note of people you see wearing glasses that look good (or use the Internet).

Google “fashionable men with glasses” or something similar and review the outfits they’re wearing and the glasses. Then, based on your style, order those same pair.
