Which glasses should I choose for my style?

"Basically, my current style is lots of pretty dresses with tights! I'm loving swing dresses and tea dresses teamed with tights and boots. I think they're going to be my Spring staple too, hopefully minus the tights. I like a mixture of colours but tend to stick to grey, black or neutral patterns. I'm a big lover of statement necklaces too, so I try and add some colour to my outfit using my accessories!
I don't really think I suit glasses without a rim as I'm quite pale so they just blend in to my face haha! That's the same for little square lenses that you usually find on rimless glasses. I tend to go for 'Geek' style glasses as the bigger size suits my face more. I currently have tortoise print style glasses but I'm open to a variety of colours. I think it's important that your glasses reflect your personality so I would say colours that are fun like pink would definitely be more suited to me rather than bluey/green colours I think."
The Style Solution - Charlottes' Advice
Hi Megan! Based on your style and colouring, I've got two recommendations for you.
Firstly, our Cherie Rose glasses. They are a subtle cats eye style which I think will really suit your face shape and features; plus, I think they will look awesome teamed with your tea dresses. They come in a classic black - which goes with pretty much everything - and they have really cute pink detailing on the inner frame.
Secondly is our Alfie Brown frame. This is a classic style with a modern take on the geek glasses trend. The understated style and colour of the frame makes them perfect for everyday use, they are super wearable and look just as stylish worn with a neutral print dress as they do with jeans and a slogan tee for a casual weekend look. I think the colour will be really flattering for your colouring too.
