Optometrist and lifestyle blogger, Lizzy Yeowart, goes in search of eyewear with attitude for those festive online-only events

Embrace the stay-at-home party season with vigour and more-is-more embellished or bejewelled eyewear. Word of warning: these are frames not suited to wallflowers.
Charmant celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Line Art premier eye wear with three jubilee frames featuring hand-set precious stones. The ‘XL1614’ features a solid titanium front set with 140 dazzling 5-carat diamonds in a pave setting.

Lockdown + winter means less going “out out” and (even) more staying home in front of a screen. Here are two super-lightweight styles with a large eye-size that lend themselves to online work and play.
The Stepper ‘STS-30012’ weighs just 8g. The transparent crystal means it’s as perfect for Monday morning meetings as it is for Friday night pub quizzes.
