Spec-tacular trends with Henry Roth

November 12, 2009

Specsavers Style Ambassador Henry Roth (“Project Runway”) gives his guide to spec-tacular accessory trends for summer.

• Frames are fashion – Think of your frames as a fashion accessory – match them with your mood and personal style. You add a burst of colour to a neutral outfit, or transform your wardrobe from day to evening with a change of frames.

• Specs 2010 to be seen. Spectacles are the must have fashion essential, worn not to blend onto your face, but more as a stand out look.

• Accessories are fashion’s best friend for 2010. Accessories, including spectacles, are fantastic for when you need to spruce up your wardrobe for summer, but can’t afford a complete overhaul.

• Adventurous accessories. Be adventurous with your spectacle selection. Choose a classic pair for work and a more bold design for evenings and weekends.

• Summer 2010, mix it up. Don’t be afraid to mix silver and gold jewellery/accessories – this summer’s all about style with attitude.

• Sexy secretary is in. For girls, this summer’s look is flirty, feminine with a touch of Euro sexy style. Pencil skirts, patterned leather belts and high pumps. Look for gold, bright pink and orange accessories, jewellery with bling and rimless spectacles with colourful arms.

• Here comes Superman! For guys, this summer sees the return of the classic nerd – Clark Kent style. Clean crisp shirts, tailored suits, preppy jackets and lace-up shoes, teamed up with oversized plastic black or dark rimmed glasses and slicked back hair to complete the look.

• Avant-garde, fashion forward look. Opt for accessories that are bold and dramatic. For a night out, match your little black dress with bright and funky accessories like chandelier earrings, studded cuff bracelets or colourful frames.

• To balance a prominent nose. If you have a long nose, look for glasses with a low set bridge to shorten it. For shorter noses, select a style with a high set bridge in line with the top of the frames.

• To balance a square face. If you have a square face, choose oval frames as they’ll help soften your jaw line. If you have a round face, opt for angular or geometric frame styles.
