With the holidays in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about one of our favorite parts of the season - the festive parties. Whether you’re planning on attending a workplace function, have a celebration planned with your closest friends or are taking part in a giant family affair, planning ahead for what you’re going to wear to your long list of holiday functions is a must. That way, all you’ll have to do is attend the event rather than stress out about what you’re possibly going to wear. This is doubly true for those of us who wear prescription eyeglasses! Of course, we want our outfits to match or complement our favorite designer prescription frames.
But if you’re already feeling the stress of all of your holiday shindigs and not sure how to start planning ahead for what you’re going to wear, we’re here to help. Keep reading to discover some of our favorite tips and tricks to help style your eyewear for any upcoming festive celebration.
Keep Things Neutral
One of the most exciting parts about the holiday season is the resurgence of bright colors and patterns in vivid reds and greens, stunning blues and other playful combinations. From gift wrap to decorations, themed sweaters to holiday dishes, it’s hard to find something this season that’s not super colorful and festive!
To keep from clashing with any of your favorite colorful holiday sweaters, dresses or other outfits, try opting for a pair of designer prescription eyeglasses in a neutral hue, such as deep ebony or cool clear. That way, you can keep your full look on center stage without taking away from it with a pair of clashing eyeglasses.
This tip works especially well for formal gatherings, such as a black tie soiree or workplace engagement. However, if you are planning on attending a more whimsical and playful event, such as an Ugly Christmas Sweater party, feel free to pair clashing eyewear with your go-to ugly sweater - it will only add to the fun and chaos!

Pair it Off
On the other hand, if your favorite pair of everyday designer eyeglasses is brightly colored, you can always play this up with your outfits through choosing coordinating colors. This method of designing a holiday outfit is a great way to add a sense of sophistication to any look, as it shows that some planning was involved in creating the overall aesthetic.
For example, if you have a pair of bright, cherry red cat-eye prescription eyeglasses, try putting together a holiday outfit with touches of red, such as a red scarf, handbag or shoes to create a head-to-toe complementary look. You can even match your eyeglasses to your lipstick or jewelry, such as pairing red eyeglasses with red lipstick or blue eyeglasses with a blue statement necklace.
This holiday dressing tip is great for both casual and formal situations, as it adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to your look. For a formal event, we’d recommend subtle coordination rather than statement-making to keep things truly elevated. For a more casual occasion, feel free to play around with how you pair your eyeglasses with other pieces in your outfit.

Go for Complementary
In the same spirit as our tip about coordinating pairs, another method of styling your holiday outfits with your glasses is opting for something that falls within the complementary color family. This opens the door to more opportunities for you to mix and match without making you look like a chaotic holiday present, as you can pair colors that complement each other, such as red and gold or green and silver.
Because green and red are so prevalent this season, we’d recommend picking one or the other to pull off the perfect complementary look for any upcoming holiday party. For example, you can easily pair your favorite deep green holiday dress with your go-to silver eyeglasses and vice versa. You can also play around with different textures and tones to find the perfect expression of your unique sense of style.
Because this tip opens the door to endless experimentation and options, it’s a great choice to implement for any upcoming holiday occasion. Whether you’re snuggling up by the fire with someone special, hitting the local ice rink for some serious skating or exchanging gifts with your Secret Santa, you can dress up or down for the occasion with the perfect complementary color pairing.
