Was wearing oversized glasses a conscious decision by women?
A friend and I were discussing the attractiveness loop hole a large portion of women seem to exploit most recently, and it’s wearing oversized shaded luxury glasses. These often times, brightly colored, darkly shaded, “take-up 2/3 of your face” sized sun glasses have now become the premier fashion accessory. I suppose my friend and I forget how important the area from the top of the eyebrow to the bottom of the nose actually is on women. Sure legs, butts, breast, hair, arms, stomachs, and the rest defiantly help sway a decision, but the face is often over looked and taken for granted. Some women won’t leave the house until they’ve put on these snowboarding goggles regardless that the weather outside is overcast with an 80% chance of rain and utter lack of sunlight. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against fashion, trends or raising one self esteem through clothing, but this occurrence is getting out of hand.
My friend and I feel it’s yet again, another way women have found to falsely project attractiveness. With a combination of eye shadows, high heels, hair extensions, and push up bra’s it’s becoming more and more difficult to see a woman’s beauty for what it is. Now couple that with these masking sunglasses, women are basically wearing an outer shell of manufactured beauty. I just wanted to know whether or not if this was a conscious decision by women to wear these type of glasses and make it a trend for reasons listed above or did these glasses simply become fashionable because of their functionality. Covering up ½ of your face may mean one doesn’t have to apply makeup everyday and can still be consider attractive. Covering up ½ of one’s face may lessen the occurrence of certain types of skin cancers. Or perhaps women really have figured out that wearing these glasses actually preserves this false sense of attractiveness for these women who are fugly between the eyebrows and bottom cheeks area?
If you have a pair of these glasses, ask yourself if you’re wearing these glasses because they look good or because it makes “YOU” look better than you actually are? And what else will you wear next to cover up?
