Most women put much more effort into choosing shoes, jewellery, handbags and scarves than they do glasses. The exceptions realise the unique power of fashion eyewear to enhance or transform a look. You can see this in our picks from 6 of our favourite eyewear designers, covering the exotic to the elegant everyday. If you consider glasses a necessary evil, only have 2 or 3 pairs, or are relieved you don’t need them (yet), you may not think our selection is for you. But you might surprise yourself - especially if reading this starts a process of thinking harder about why, when and how you choose and wear glasses.
