Okay, before we even attempt to get into the post I just want to put it out there that I'm totally smitten with these Scout glasses for Glasses Direct and can't even begin to comprehend the fact that I've never stumbled across this particular brand before! Yes, glasses are my thing, whether it be reading glasses or sunglasses, I'm never without a pair and these ones have become a staple office must have for me and I even wear them out of the office to add character to my casual wear.
Product Details: Maverick Aviators from Glasses Direct c/o
So you might be dying to know what style I opted for and my reasons why. I went for the Maverick Aviators in Gunmetal with a crisp matte finish to give a really chic look to these frames. I must admit this shape is much different to anything else I own in my collection and I think that's why I instantly fell in love with them, as they have a lot of character and work even harder outside of the office environment with my outfits.
I don't know about you, but I'm totally feeling these and think they're perfect for the summer months with the light frame and quirky style. I wouldn't go all out and say that have a geek chic element to them, but I definitely think they're on that path and give off a unique look if you're looking for something much different to your typical rectangle frames.
I 'm really surprised to find these frames suit my face shape, as I don't normally opt for Aviator styles because I feel the larger frames don't work very well with my small face shape. As for functionality, these are really light-weight and make reading and computing tasks so much easier without having eye strain an hour down the line. I barely even notice they're there half the time.
What I love most about the style of these is that the Aviator design will never go out of fashion, it's a true classic to have as part of your collection. These particular frames don't drown your face shape if it's small like mine and actually enhance your overall look. I always opt for functional shapes as these suit my face shape and look super chic for the office and wearing around the house as needed.
You can't really go wrong with this style and the delivery service at Glasses Direct is always super fast after placing your order. I find the prices much more reputable compared to shopping on the high street as they offer a wider range of frames and brands, without the high price tag.
What're your thoughts on this particular aviator style? Would you rock these?
