New stylish frames from Twiggy for Aurora and Hackett at Specsavers #loveglasses

Wearing glasses nowadays is not the burden it used to be. If anything, spectacles are an essential style accessory for many people,  and some fashionistas even choose to wear styles with plain glass!

No wonder then that opticians like Specsavers are making a huge effort to ensure their ranges have styles to suit customers who want to look good and be able to see clearly.

Specsavers have aimed to cater for glasses wearers of all ages. From the hugely popular Disney range for little people, stylish and practical designs for trend-conscious tweens and teens through to adults wanting to express their personal style from top to toe, including what sits on their nose.

The latest new thing at Specsavers for men is the exciting Hackett range which borrows influences from the brand's racing days with subtle details. The range was revealed at a sparkling event at London's Cafe Royal this week but although the venue was spectacular the lighting was less so, hence my unusual use of mostly "official" images.

My husband normally favours hipster-esque plastic rims (from Specsavers natch!) but agrees with me that a second pair from the Hackett range would be perfect- still great for casual wear but smart for more formal occasions. He was pleased to see that many of the glasses in the range, mostly letterbox or larger rectangle shaped, were suitable for his bifocal prescription too.

The Hackett spectacles which designers say are built to suit the "effortlessly stylish modern man" and are versatile enough to make the transition from the boardroom to the weekend, will be available in store from December 2 and if you take advantage of the 2 for 1 offer you could have two pairs for just £125.

Also being unveiled at the London event was a new range for Specsavers by fashion icon Twiggy who has added her style touch to the Aurora collection.


Twiggy, a glasses wearer for 20 years, urges women of all ages to have fun with their frames. She admits she has lots of pairs of glasses in different shapes and colours so she can choose the best pair to go with whatever she is wearing.

Each of the new styles is named after a gemstone and I particularly liked the Sapphire design, a navy tortoiseshell with a sleigh cat's eye shape which even had a subtle touch of glitter in the form of sapphire coloured crystals on the sides along with the signature Aurora crystal on the tips.

There are six styles available priced at £125 and the good news is the range is included in Specsavers' famous 2 for 1 offer.
