Prescription glasses: the office edit

The office space over the years has definitely been thought of as a dull and boring place. The same notion has been applied to the way that people dress there. But all that has changed in this day and age, and this can be said for the atmosphere in an office as well as the outfit choices that are available.

The likes of H&M, Topshop, River Island and Next all have designated trends that cater for office wear that’s a little more in tune with the style and sophistication of high street trends. I for one sometimes shop those trends for general clothing. The smart casual look has definitely been brought back, both in and out of the office!

I always think that selecting the right glasses to match your outfit can be the ultimate way to finish off a look. So below I thought I would look at three really cool office styles and I have matched them to glasses and contacts all by Tesco Opticians.

The girly look

The first look is for all you girly girls out there. Fitted cashmere jumpers and A-line midi skirts is what it’s all about here. Anya are the glasses I have selected to match with this outfit, and I think the deep red tint to the frames with the subtle white detailing are perfect with this look. The dainty frames really complement the feminine feel of this while the red adds some depth and colour this outfit is begging for.

The sporty look

Fear not, if you’re thinking the girly look really isn’t for you, up next I have chosen the sporty look. You may be wondering how this smart/casual outfit is classed as sporty. Well the tapered almost tailored style jogger trousers are what achieve this, paired with a slightly oversized grey t-shirt that completely steers away from the fitted top and floaty skirt of the girly trend. Carly are the frames I’ve chosen, and I’ve gone with a larger wayfarer style that are classically sporty. The blue and black star detailing is subtle enough not to overpower the outfit, while still adding a cute detail to finish off the look.



The day to night look

So lastly is the day to night outfit, and what I love about this is that it’s not overly dressy for the office, but it’s the perfect level of smart to go straight from the office for food and drinks in the city. Cali are the frames I have paired with this look, and I have chosen the leopard print to complement that amazing bag.




Why not swap them for contact lenses?

So at the end of a hectic 8 hour day, it’s now Friday and you and the office are off out for some drinks. If you are sick of having your glasses on, and feel you want a change for the evening, why not swap them for some Tesco Opticians contact lenses? I wouldn’t blame you! They can be less hassle and a lot comfier for some people to wear.

For lots of other styles, and to explore Tesco Opticians full range of contact lenses that include standard and coloured lenses, then head to their site to take a look.

    • Same here, I hardly wear mine

  • cvantassel

    I love the idea of matching your glasses to your outfit! I love all of these looks. I think that the second look is more my style though I wish I could pull off the first.

  • Gabriel Bregg

    That’s a great selection of styles to choose from. They look pretty well made, also.

  • It’s great that there are glasses to suit everyone. Glasses are so fashionable right now.

    • Glasses are definitely fashionable now

  • I’m more partial to vintage-inspired frames, but I love the choices that you’ve featured! I really like the second choice. – HilLesha

    Been wearing glasses for seven years now. I think I need the sporty style now.

    • Hope you manage to grab some sporty type glasses

  • Hungry_Healthy_Happy

    I would love to give contact lenses a try, but I think I would find them really difficult to put in.

    • I know the feeling

  • Annie Brooks

    I have noticed retailers trying to give consumers a bit of mixture. I like looking fashionable for meetings and show that I take pride in my appearance. Those glasses are fabulous, I’ve only got some for headaches with looking at computer screens too long – perhaps I need an update!

    • I too take pride in my appearance and want to look presentable always

  • Nicole Etolen

    I like the sporty look, seems like very fashionable! I wear glasses for special purposes.

    • I am the same I wear for special purposes

  • I actually had laser eye surgery, then realised glasses suit me! Haha. A statement pair of frames is such a good look!

  • I think nice frames do add a lot to outfits. Your sporty look is my favorite. I definitely prefer some stylish frames to contacts.

    • They sure do, I think that too

  • Sarahjane

    I don’t need glasses but I sometimes wish I did because they can be so stylish!

    • I definitely know the feeling

  • I have worn glasses for a very long time. I typically buy one pair unless I am lucky and get a BOGO offer. I usually pick something that is versatile and don’t use them as a fashion statement.

    • My mum is the same she usually only has one pair

  • chubskulit

    I definitely have the girly look precription glasses. It’s hard to be wearing glasses but I need it.

    • When it’s needed and essential it can be hard but you just work with it

  • Francesca Nelson

    You have just reminded me that I’m in desperate need of getting my eyes rechecked! Something I dread!! I love the different looks you can get with glasses though but the prices are not so great!

    • Aww bless hope you manage to have them rechecked and good luck

  • I recently got glasses and got the ‘nerdy’ kind with a fairly large frame. You’ve picked great choices!

    • I like the nerdy ones too, they can look really sexy too

  • I tend to wear a lot of black. I think the red frames would be a great way to add some color to my look.

    • I think that would be a good addition indeed

  • Melanie Edjourian

    I love your choices of glasses and would go for the first to myself. Great post.

  • Alyssia Slade

    I’ve never really had to wear glasses, but these are some great ideas for people that do have to wear them!

    • Thanks so much Alyssia

  • Bex Smith

    great post, you’ve given me some new ideas of how to style around my specs 😊

    • Thanks Bex and glad to hear it

  • Natalia Molinero Mingorance

    I don’t need glasses, but I think there are really cool designs, like the ones you have shown. x

    • Thanks so much Natalia

  • Rebecca Swenor

    The styles of clothes match perfect with the style of glasses I believe. The Anya glasses are the ones I love and I believe can be worn with most things. Thanks for sharing the styles along with the glasses to go with them.

    • Thanks so much Rebecca, much appreciated. The Anya glasses are pretty indeed

  • Lovely glasses, I am lucky enough to not need them but I love the bold frames x

    • Same but I do love wearing glasses for reading

  • Jo Wiggins

    I don’t need glasses but you’ve picked some lovely styles here x

  • Chrissy Hme

    I love the girly look and the sporty look. I really need some new glasses, I just realized how bored I am with mine.

    • Thanks Chrissy and hope you find a new pair that you like

  • Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    Great, great post. If you have to wear glasses, they might as well be just another accessory. Love the picks!

  • I love all your picks – I would totally go for the last pair myself though, they are right up my street. x

  • Christine Dodd

    I wear both specs and contacts – at the moment I am lusting after some tortoiseshell frames.

    • I bet the tortoiseshell frames would look awesome

  • LaaLaa

    I’m a glasses wearer, I have one pair that are my favourite because they seem to go with every outfit and I’m a fusspot with the frame styles but they’re perfect for me. Think you did a good job with selecting glasses for different styles.

    • Thanks, I love glasses too and particular about my frames
