You know those perfect Instagram kitchen decors, with those perfect coffees resting on textured wooded tables, at which the most beautiful man we’ve seen is sitting in his effortless persona, disheveled hair, sexy everything, sipping that coffee while reading his morning paper through his eyeglasses? Yeah. What in the name of Lawd is hotter than that? Well, two things actually. Same scenario in a birthday suit, OR a woman doing the same thing. And if you pay close attention both have one thing in common: a perfect pair of eyeglasses.
When it comes to eyeglasses we’re witnessing one of the best fashion and utility combos ever. Most people these days need glasses to function better. Hello short-sighted me and half the people I know. But eyewear has come a long way from being just that – glasses we use to see better. They’re fashion, they’re polished, they’re cool, they’re funky, and they come in so many designs to match each and everyone’s personal style, it’s fantastic. Shopping for a pair of great spectacles these days is a lot of fun.
One of the latest eyewear hubs I came across these days – Express Glasses – offers just that: a variety of the coolest eyeglasses to literally fit all tastes and styles for both men and women.
What to wear: EYEGLASSES trends 2016? It’s a party of colours, reds and browns being at the top, and a party of cool geeks.
The retro designs are still going strong. Thick rims are in, with a more wide variety of shapes, not just the classic ‘Mad Man’ inspired black wayfarers thick rimmed spectacles.
MEN: You know those retro tinier frames Johnny Depp is always wearing, as if he’s always poking his head from behind some novel or newspaper? Yes, those are the ones. They’re the perfect marriage of retro, and boho, and intellectual, and funky, and cool, and fashion, and geek, much like that guy I was telling you about in the beginning.
Thick rims look amazing on all designs, and because of that we’re witnessing a rise in the massive rims as well, those 70s inspired ones that Ryan Gossling had on in his ‘All good things’ movie.
WOMEN: That’s the thing, we’re blessed with the same styles + a huge variety of cat-eye inspired eyewear, of even bolder colours, and a redesign of the thin rimmed glasses that 70s French girls used to wear. Think retro shape in those 90s thin metallic rims.
All in all it’s a celebration of ALL is IN, with a penchant for bold colour and more classic geek rims. Which I think is fantastic.
THIS is precisely what I loved about this eyewear brand – Express Glasses, that they have the most beautiful spectacles in terms of colour and texture and a huge variety of retro rims that fit so many styles and looks it’s insane.
I am majorly crushing over red rimmed thick glasses right now, and a pair of brown retro Johnny Depp inspired ones. They are next on my list, and I already see them perfectly blended in my morning work routine, with my lose jeans and boyfriend button down shirt, working on my laptop.
I even see them on my husband as he’s songwriting on his guitar or reading his favourite book over coffee one morning. Because that’s the thing you know: they work for both women and men.
And then there are those eyeglasses that are a more polished version of the above, for those situations when you go out there and rule the world. Business suit and all. Posh dress and high heels.

And now if you’ll excuse me I’ll go make myself one more cup of coffee and as I sip on it wearing my spectacles I’ll be shopping for my next pair of retro thick rimmed eyewear pair here.
