In Focus: Specs Never Looked This Cool—8 Images that Will Make You Want to Wear A Pair

There's this notion that wearing glasses is uncool, but it really doesn't have to be. You just have to find the perfect frames that would highlight your features, not go against them. We spotted a whole gamut of chic frames on the well-heeled guest list at the Sunnies Specs party recently, and we're giving you a rundown of the cutest ones that will make you rethink your biases against glasses:


Georgina Wilson. Clear acetate frames act as a natural highlighter as they instantly brighten up the eye area and remove shadows cast by darker colors.


Julia Barretto. Glasses can help you make a statement, especially if they're in a striking color that beautifully contrasts against your skin tone.


Iza Calzado. Hunting for a frame that goes unnoticed instead of standing out? Opt for something thin and understated. Choose soft, round wires, this subtle pair will stay out of the spotlight, focusing the attention on your gorgeous eyes. 


Liz Uy. This style is universally flattering on all face shapes while giving you a young, hip appearance. Stick with the neutral colors for a classic look. 


Bea Soriano. For a bolder and sharper look, sweep your hair off your face, go for a nude, matte pout, and make your eyes pop with some dramatic winged eyeliner. Looks like the geek chic is back with even more panache!


Raymond Gutierrez. While many of us choose bold frames in darker colors like black, brown or grey, we are missing out on this funky style. Glasses with clear frames can, in fact, be very cool and trendy and go well with almost any complexion and outfit. 


Kiana Valenciano. Animal-print styles are always on point, but make sure you wear them in small doses so the focus is still on your face and not on the print!


Gabs Gibbs. Look for frames with rounded edges to soften a square-shaped face. Black frames, like this retro pair, also help dark hair and eyes pop.
