Frames to watch out for

Optometrist and lifestyle blogger, Lizzy Yeowart, shares her top three frame picks at 100% Optical

Lizzy Yeowart

Frames by FACE A FACE, Jimmy Choo and Lulu Guinness were chosen by optometrist and lifestyle blogger, Lizzy Yeowart, as her top three eyewear picks showcased at 100% Optical last month (12–14 January, ExCeL London).


Lizzy’s first pick was FACE A FACE’s ‘Jones.’ It was the multi-coloured acetate and statement side that made Lizzy select this sunglass. “I love the angles and the geometry of the shape and I think this is going to be huge this year,” she said.

Jimmy Choo

Lizzy’s second pick was ‘Audrey’ by Jimmy Choo, which she said is “absolutely stunning and guaranteed to turn heads.”

The plexiglas details and inset Swarovski crystal is what caught the optometrist’s eye.

Lulu Guinness

Her third pick was optical frame ‘L915’ by Lulu Guinness. Featuring HD printed acetate, Lizzy described the frames as “super comfortable and super lightweight.”

“The dogtooth check is something a little bit different. It’s nice to see a different pattern coming in and I think this is going to get more popular as the year goes on,” she added.
