Hats and Glasses Rule

Eyebobs Reading Glasses - The Left Brain - A Great Gift Idea from HartfordYork.com

There’s an ongoing discussion over at The Washington Post’s Holiday Guide about all matters fashion, and one question was if there’s any fashion rule that says hats and glasses shouldn’t be worn at the same time.

This so-called rule, by the by, isn’t one for men in fedoras so much as it is for the ladies, but I think the answer could apply to both sexes: glasses and hats are good if they balance.

For instance, if you’ve got a loud print hat or one in a bold, bright color, wear your lightest glasses–ones with a wire or partly invisible frame. On the other hand, if you’ve got a simple, dark fur felt cloche or woolen beret on your head, then you can wear a more decorative pair of peepers.

Being a man, I never really thought of how to best pair glasses and hats, my biggest beef with lenses being more on the practical side: trying to defog them when coming in from the cold outdoors. Nothing ruins a good hat more than blindly walking (face-first) into a closet door.
