Being an optician it’s become very habitual for me to observe the styles, fitting and general design of the spectacles that people wear, whether it is whilst working, travelling on trains or socialising. It is a strange habit you may think but the observations are sometimes very strange, amusing and often really shocking.
The number of people who don’t give second thought to how their spectacles are projecting their personality is unthinkable. You see spectacles balanced on the end of noses, women perching them in their hair as a hair accessory, people using them as a chewing aid when they gnaw away on the spectacle arm. Of course then you get those “I don’t care what my spectacles look like they are only functional ” who precariously balance them on one ear where the arm of the spectacle is missing or of course the classic spectacles that are stuck together with sticky tape or worse still band aid plasters!!!!!!
Its interesting to know that you can tell a persons personality just by looking at the spectacles that they are wearing .e.g; you can spot the designer gurus who show off their CK and Armani specs not forgetting the dazzling bling diamantes topped frames and the Gucci and Prada styles. On the other hand you get the extroverts, sporting multicoloured specs in very modern and funky colours. The contrast is set of with the intellects that wear the dark heavier studious look frames or better still the round metal rimmed Harry potter look. Then there is the girly look with the pretty baby doll pretty in pink look .
You will be astounded at the weird and wonderful observations, do take a look next time you are out and about.
