I have been wearing corrective eyewear since I was five years old. Back in those days, I had a few select metal frames to choose from and they were expensive! As an active kids, keeping my frames in tact proved challenging. I never looked at them as a fashion accessory. Fast forward to college and a brief stint of wearing contacts and realizing I was too near sighted to keep up that routine, I reverted back to eyewear. I decided if I were going to have to wear eyeglasses for the rest of my adult life, I might as well make them interesting. I had heard of Zenni Optical for years before taking the plunge on a pair. It was just so unheard of to me to order frames online. Ever since then, I have been hooked and recommend the site to family and friends. I now own multiple frames.
Since I currently switch frames to match my ensemble, I often get comments from people that along the line of not knowing how to wear bold frames. Bold depends on your personal comfort level. Tame to me could be “out there” to someone else. I’ve chosen three frames from the Cynthia Rowley x Zenni collections and have provided tips on how to wear them.
