--Guest Post By Sara Roberts

In years past it was not always considered cool to have to wear glasses. Many wealthy celebrities avoided wearing glasses and instead spent money on expensive eye surgeries or contacts. In recent years there has been an influx of celebrities who don glasses. Ranging from budget specs to high quality designer eyewear, these celebrities are making glasses cool once again. If you need to wear glasses for your vision but want to look great while you do so, use this guide to find the perfect pair of glasses that will be both practical and stylish.

Dita Vesoul
These oversize frames are incredible trendy and have been seen on a number of celebrities around the world. Gwen Stefani wears them regularly around town as well as for photo ops. The large frames have a tortoiseshell color that go well with a range of different outfits and colors. The combination of cat-eye and aviator shapes makes it slightly retro while still staying right on trend.

Wear them if you are not afraid to make a statement and get noticed. They work best in casual fun settings rather than more formal occasions. Dita also makes over a dozen other styles of sunglasses as well as reading glasses to improve vision.
