1:15 p.m. Weekdays: Best Place to Buy a Pair of Glasses That Will Make You Look Like a Superstar

Next Eyewear

Buying new eyeglasses is not a decision that should be taken lightly. Yet many people carelessly choose a pair, put them on, and then find themselves, ten years later, stuck in a fashion flashback with yesteryear’s frames. The only thing worse than that old four-eyed yearbook photo is a current glam shot with the same sad spectacles. Glasses are more than an accessory, and can mar their wearer’s image as much as a bad cell phone ring tone. So leave it to the talented staff at this ultratrendy boutique to assist with the kind of fashion-forward advice that changes lives. The cheery “dispensing opticians” tell it like it is, offering essential guidance based on clues like a customer’s face shape, coloring, and current frame faux pas. If it’s hip, it’s here. The current look: chunky, quirky frames in shocking colors — red, green, or purple. Or try the understated frameless-type instead. Ideally, glasses should be rotated along with each day’s fashion statement, but at prices ranging from $200-$400, it’s often enough to settle for one really cool pair.
