Attempting to look cooler, smarter or more refined with prescription-less frames? We’re more than happy to add our lens to this hot topic. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.)
DON’T BE THAT DUDE
If you have perfect vision, we’ve got two words for ya: forget it. While some may say that eyeglasses are just another accessory, they should only be worn by those who actually need them. (That goes for you too, Clark Kent.) Instead, stick to finding dope sunglasses.
If you really want to add depth to your appearance, accessories are an easy upgrade—plus, they can be relatively inexpensive. Here are some quick tips to sharpen your look:
Pocket Squares: Newsflash: your blazer’s breast pocket is not meant to hold your cell phone. Pocket squares instantly class up your look—and the pop of color separates you from the pack.
A Nice Watch: What time is it? It’s time for you to step up your wrist wear. That means no Happy Meal watches, either. Aim for a classic leather watch with a white face if you really want to class up the joint.
Tie-Bar: It keeps your tie in place, goes well with a blazer and just exudes to others that “This guy has got his ish together.”
Cool Socks: That’s right, let your feet do the talking. A nice pair of shoes with a great pair of standout socks gives off the vibe that you’re bold and stylish. Read our guide to step up your sock game.
Lightweight Scarf: It’s an essential just as important as a great necktie. They’re practical, keep you warm and overall showcase substance and flair.
Grooming: Your hair is one the first things people notice about you—so make sure you have a well-kept beard and clean haircut. It says a lot about you and will leave a great first impression (don’t be shy with that comb).
The Right Shirt Fit: An oversized, untucked shirt just looks sloppy. No room for discussion here. Check our guide on finding the perfect shirt.
If you’re absolutely insistent, opt for a pair of non-prescription, coated-lens frames you can wear for extended time in front of your computer. These do serve an actual purpose so you won’t be going full poser. Just limit their usage to the office.
