Do you feel a bit like a kid in a sweetshop when it comes to picking out a new pair of glasses? 

With so many different styles, colours and shapes on offer these days, you can easily find a whole host of pairs which perfectly complement your look. 

Brands like Wolf Eyewear, Lulu Guinness and Tiffany, make the task of picking out just one or two pairs quite tricky with their exciting design, on-trend palette of colours and attention to detail. 

So, we asked Anna, receptionist at our Mersea branch, to pick her five favourites currently in stock for the latest of our Frame Inspiration blogs. 

Anna has worked at Patrick & Menzies for seven years and the Mersea branch has always been her and her children’s optician. 

She explained: “I have been wearing specs since I was a child and my daughter has been wearing them since she was 18 months old! I feel specs are a part of your character and these days are almost like an item of jewellery with so many styles and colours to choose from.” 

Read on to discover Anna’s favourite frames, which may help you narrow down your own choice!

“These are my specs. I love the colour which is rich but not too bright and the flattering shape – I often find a pair in this range to suit me.”

Ocean Blue sunspecs 9343  

Frame inspiration | Mersea branch News 3“These are from the new range and I like the Ombré effect which adds lightness to the style. The nice large frame offers good sun protection. I love this shape and will be getting these as my next pair of sun specs.”

Lulu Guinness L933

“I love this mottled colour effect – muted but pretty and a little different. This is one of the larger styles in the range. Lulu Guinness has a wide selection of colours and shapes but all with the classic elegant designer touch.”

Eyestuff ‘Earth’

“This is a completely different choice for me – a modern metal frame with a fun khaki/rose colour combination. They are light to wear and an unobtrusive style. Although they are very different to my usual pick I was pleasantly surprised with the look and feel.”
