When it comes to finding the perfect pair of glasses, size matters! Not only do you want to look great in your new frames, but you also want to feel comfortable wearing them. At Spex4less, we recommend ensuring that the width of the frame matches the width of your face to avoid any slipping or discomfort. If you already have a pair of glasses that fit you well, take a look at the measurements on the inside of the arms to get an idea of what size to look for in your new frames.

When it comes to choosing the perfect pair of glasses, the colour of the frames can make all the difference. Not only should you consider your personal style, but it's also important to choose a colour that complements your skin tone and hair colour. At Spex4less, we offer a wide range of frame colours to suit all tastes and preferences. If you're into versatility, darker colours like black, brown or havana are great options that match well with pretty much any outfit. Feeling bold and adventurous? Try out brighter colours like red, pink, or green that'll really make a statement and show off your unique personality. Whatever your colour preference, we have the perfect frames for you.
