You can never have too many readers. In fact, I’m a firm believer that when it comes to reading glasses, more is more. Stash them in your purse, in your desk, and in your glove compartment. From BunnyEyez to Caddis, I rounded up my favorite reading glasses that are just as stylish as they are useful. From brightly colored pairs to retro-inspired silhouettes, you’ll never have to feel bad about pulling out a pair of these fashionable frames.
Right now, I keep reaching for my tortoiseshell glasses more often than anything else. For a classic shape with slightly oversized proportions, you can’t go wrong with these MIKLOS glasses in a rich dark shade, these AMOMOMA glasses in a white tortoise, or these Ryan Simkhai Lucy glasses in a sharp cat eye silhouette. If you want something a little more offbeat and unique, these circular Ryan Simkhai eyeglasses in a dark tortoise are about as cool as it gets.
For a fresh take on a classic shape, these Kate Spade frames are cat-eyed with a black frame on top half and tortoise on the bottom. These Peepers Showbiz glasses are a slightly more colorful two-tone situation, with tortoise and aqua. Ryan Simkhai’s striped frames are an easy way to inject a pop of color.
Get some Iris Apfel-esque glamour in your life with these CADDIS shades in the style icon’s signature shape. The QUANT 64 is an oversized oval shape that makes a bold, elegant statement in black or high-gloss white. For another fun, trendy silhouette, how about colorful aviators? You can go for rose pink with a gold trim, or an icy blue with a silver-y lens. I also have a soft spot for these retro cat-eye readers in a cool pistachio shade.
