Frame Your Face in Style
With a new year in full swing and spring on the horizon, now is a great time to consider updating your eyeglasses. Your frames says a lot about who you are. LaFont frames express your style and double as fashion accessories.
If you’re an executive climbing the corporate ladder, try glasses with a modern sophistication such as tortoise shell or a chic, modern design. If you have a bold personality, opt for bold glasses in a vivid hue. If you’re creative or want a dressier look, consider a pair of frames with ornate cutouts.
Just like you have a wardrobe full of clothing with different looks, why not create a wardrobe of eyeglasses? It’s a wonderful way to express your many moods and make a statement.
