We each express our personal style and values in very many different ways – some of us love our clothes to be bright and colorful, others wear only black; some are eager to be the first to embrace new technology, others are happy with what we’re familiar with and only update our tech when we have to. And it’s the same with eyewear.
When it comes to our glasses, we have a wealth of choice. Do you like fine frames or chunky? Barely there or bold and distinct?
Choice can depend on a number of factors. For example, are your frames a fashion statement or more of a functional choice? Here are some things to consider when picking glasses that complement your personal style and values.
Choose a frame shape to suit your face. As a general rule, if you have a square face, go for rounded frames, and if you have a round face, opt for angular frames. If your face is oval, rejoice – you can wear pretty much anything!
Color can be as much to suit your mood as to flatter your features. Bright blues and reds suggest fun while classic black or tortoiseshell might be seen as more reserved. Bold, dark frames – and half frames – make a statement, while thin metal frames are more subdued.
Most glasses frames are made from metal and plastic, and ours are no different. However, we add a third element into the mix: bamboo. This beautiful natural product is shaped and polished to enhance the overall look of the frame and is teamed with other materials to offer something that little bit different.
When it comes to sunglasses, in particular, there’s a range of tints to choose from. It’s not just about UVA/UVB protection, as important as that is; it’s about what suits you best. Do you prefer a silver tint? Maybe a classic blue? Perhaps mirrored?
It might be that you have one style for business and another when you are with your friends – and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have different eyewear to reflect that change in tone and mood. And every time you buy a pair of eyeglasses online, we’ll donate a pair of glasses to someone who needs them.
Whatever the glasses you choose might look like, with Blue Planet Eyewear you show that your style and values include caring – about the planet and about the people you share it with.

Before buying anything, try to make it a habit to ask yourself the very important question of whether you need it or not to limit compulsive shopping habits. Aside from being environmentally friendly, this also leaves you with money to spend on more important things. Remember that even small changes, when carried out together, will create a big impact on our planet.
