Singer, actress and businesswoman Lulu has joined forces with Specsavers to unveil a collection of glasses created specifically for stylish women aged 50 plus.
Available exclusively at Specsavers stores, the Aurora range includes 13 sophisticated styles. Timeless yet on-trend, the designs make use of soft, complementary colours, intricate jewelled detailing and pearlised finishes.
Lulu’s style advice
Lulu, 64, who has worn glasses for 15 years, says: ‘Just because a woman reaches a certain age, it doesn’t mean she loses interest in looking good and keeping up with the latest trends. No one wants to look like mutton dressed as lamb but that doesn’t mean you should be afraid to try new things. I love it when women my age make an effort to look their best.
‘I keep my wardrobe classic with a rock twist and use accessories to personalise my look. I love jewellery, hats and fabulous designer shoes. And really, what could be better than accessorising with a chic pair of specs? The Aurora range allows women to make their glasses a fashionable part of their entire look.
‘My advice to older ladies choosing new specs is that adventurous is good but keep them subtle and work with what suits your face shape. There’s something in this collection for everyone. My personal favourite is Aurora 10, which is a bold cat’s eye shape, very vintage and very me.’
Colours to flatter mature women
Priced at £125, the designs feature a signature crystal on each side, combining elements of fine jewellery and intricate metalwork with modern design principles to create elegant glasses that flatter mature skin tones and hair colouring. Suitable for varifocals Every frame has been designed to suit varifocal lenses, which are ideal for people who need glasses for distance and reading. They also includes single vision lenses, a scratch-resistant treatment, a bespoke Aurora case and cloth as standard.
