As you might already know from previous posts featuring London Retro, I do wear reading glasses on a regular basis when blogging from home and using the computer! Reading is another factor I deal with on a daily basis that requires glasses, so I’ve been finding myself left with quite the little collection.
Details: London Retro Keaton Glasses c/o
Funnily enough, I actually enjoy wearing glasses, especially from the likes of London Retro and FCUK as they always look stylish and sophisticated. The good thing about the London Retro range is they also come with UV protection for outdoor use! You can select this option when buying a pair from the collection through Glasses Direct and find it a great option for wearing them indoors and outdoors, giving you more options and freedom. The ‘Keaton’ frames made of Italian acetate, come with steel hardware to the nose bridge and brow, and they also come in a chic DK.Havana print to the arms and frames.
These definitely are different to my regular frames and very retro looking with a more modern twist, and almost Hollywood glam with the unique detailing and just sums this pair up perfectly! They look great for everyday wear when working at home and doing your daily commutes. I have worn these outside and loved how well they worked against the sun and really stopped the rays from getting through the lens! My eyes were protected and I really liked that aspect, coming from the fact the lenses aren’t tinted compared to Ray Bans which normally come with a darker lens to stop reflection from the suns rays.
I do prefer using my Ray Bans or new Carrera sunglasses when it comes to sunglasses but these work perfectly well, and I was left more than impressed! I do however prefer these for more indoor wear but might venture out in them again soon! 😉 These are incredibly light in weight which you’d find hard to believe, especially with the steel hardware but honestly, these have to be the lightest pair of reading glasses I own! I actually forget I’m wearing glasses half of the time. Not only do these look ever so glamorous and sophisticated on but they also come in a handy leather case which I always store them in after use to prevent scratching the lens or tarnishing to the steel bridge.
