Your Glasses Style

How to style your hijab with glasses

Attending an event on the weekend and struggling to plan your outfit? Or perhaps you’re wondering what office attire to coordinate with your hijab and glasses?

Wearing a hijab with glasses means more fashion combinations to explore, but it can feel like an added pressure without any style inspiration. With this guide, featuring some top tips and tricks from our edgy style-icon Aminah — you won’t ever miss out on the latest fashion advice again!

How to wear a hijab with glasses

Need some guidance on how to wear or tie a hijab with your glasses? Aminah advises that “there are so many different ways of wearing the hijab with glasses. My preference is wearing it wrapped tightly so that my glasses stand out when I wear them.” Colour clashing or coordinating eyewear and headwear is another way that Aminah expresses her individual style through glasses and sunglasses frames.

Rounded frames to compliment your hijab

Round glasses can be a great accessory to compliment your hijab. When choosing a pair, consider the shape and colour of the hijab. If your hijab is a light colour, opt for glasses in dark colours such as black, brown or navy blue.

Our trendy PERCH SUN RX round-eye sunglasses are a classic and timeless design. Aminah’s go-to pair of glasses for everyday wear are rounded. Here she shows how rounded frames can add a relaxed vibe — bringing a subtle, yet noticeable, level of comfort and coolness to any outfit.

Revamp your workwear with this chic aesthetic

Look good, feel good, right? Your workwear can have a huge impact on how you feel going to work and ultimately affect your productivity.

It’s time to revisit those repeated outfits and give them a revamp. Why not embrace dopamine dressing this year and go for a colourful pair of frames? 

With a bit of creativity and flair, bold coloured frames can be the perfect accessory to take your look to the next level. When asked what Aminah looks for in a pair of frames, she said: “When picking out frames, I look at style and shape. When I go out in evening attire, I love to wear bolder frames with smarter outfits”. 

Aminah styles these oversized, iconic Vivienne Westwood RX 01* frames with a light brown hijab and pairs them with a tartan blazer for an effortlessly bold aesthetic. These statement frames with chunky temples provide maximum impact, creating the ultimate work-chic feel and adding a touch of sophistication to your work wardrobe. 

Rimless glasses to pair with your hijab

If you’re heading to a fancy dinner with friends, you can rely on a classic look and it doesn’t get any more classic than a pair of rounded glasses like the Specsavers India frames

These thin, pale gold-effect round glasses feature tortoiseshell browline edging and are hugely versatile. An added bonus? Tortoiseshell frames compliment all skin tones, especially adding warmth to fairer skin types when black frames prove a little too harsh.  

Suited particularly to smaller faces, the sleek look exudes an effortless, vintage appearance. What’s more, the barely-there lightweight feel makes them perfect for a night out with friends. Go for a neutral-coloured frame such as black, white, gold or beige and keep the hijab design simple. To take the look a step further, accessorise with a pair of small gold hoops or an ornate clip and you’re good to go.

What glasses look good with hijab?

Triangular lens sunglasses are a great way to make a fashion statement. To emphasise the triangle shape of the sunglasses, consider wearing your hijab wrapped tightly around your face like Aminah.

Specsavers Vivienne Westwood SUN RX 03 are a beautifully delicate frame, with softly rounded triangular lenses and pink crystal detailing on the temple tips. Aminah styles these with a big borg coat and a fluffy scarf, for a boujee look whilst out and about.
