MANILA, Philippines – The eyewear you choose can define your character. Trying on a pair of shades or choosing your prescription glasses is not just about what fits your face; it’s also the design or style that you add to your look. Make a statement since the face is the first thing that people see.

For the more mature set, opt for classic pieces with an updated look. Black is the safest option for prescription glasses. Still, find accents that add highlight to the common aesthetic. The Alfred Dunhill prescription pair has that very classic feel, yet upgraded with the detail of the brand’s signature black and gold stripes.

This season’s men’s collection has a growing double bar trend in design – or the style with two bar bridges in between the lenses. Young professionals should opt for modern pieces that can go from work to party. It can be striking with color, or a subtle addition to your look. Take the two-tone, black with Havana brown double bar eyeglasses from Police. Your shades can be a more subdued style while you unwind during the weekends.

Trendy details can easily work with teens but those of us who have to adult shouldn't shy away from them either. Have fun with your frames! Go for vibrant colors and break away from dull choices. Sting’s sky blue eyeglasses with bright yellow temple tips are exciting additions to your look. The royal blue shades gives a more outgoing personality.
