Ready Readers & Chains

Many people still associate the word "glasses chain" with the cliché of the forgetful granny or the ageing, quirky receptionist. This should now be a thing of the past, as the chains, which were once reduced to their function, have long since become "must haves" in the fashion industry and are considered a trendy accessory that is not only available in bookshops and sports stores, but also in drugstores, fashion boutiques and jewelry and designer stores. From sporty to elegant - from classy to funky - from discreet to daring. The chic accessories are available in all designs and for every taste.

Eyeglass straps and chains are the perfect complement to reading glasses. After all, you often have to read spontaneously and at short notice in everyday life. Whether it's the package insert for your prescribed medication, the recipe from the cookbook or the map when cycling. Not to mention the many emails and likes on your cell phone. It is therefore advisable to always have a reading aid at hand for the small font on the display.

Styling recommendations for wearing chains of glasses:
  • Eyewear chains look stylish as a break in style
  • Basic outfits such as jeans and a T-shirt don't look so boring and have a little more pep, especially when casual meets classy (such as with pearl bands).
  • Elegant outfits such as softly draped blouses or business suits can appear even more chic with an eyewear chain.
  • For more minimalist clothing, chunky chains of glasses can provide an exciting detail.
  • With eye-catching patterns and ruffles, the chain should be more delicate in silver or gold to have a calming effect and not appear too overloaded.
  • Less is often more! Eyeglass frames do not need additional jewelry in the form of a necklace. Earrings can complete the look, but should match the necklace in style and color.
How do you attach the glasses strap to the glasses?
  • Eyeglass straps usually have two small rubber eyelets at each end that are attached to the temples - ideal if they are also non-slip.
What makes a good glasses strap?
  • High-quality spectacle straps are made of metal or acrylic acetate.
  • The chain should be nickel-free to avoid skin irritation.
  • Ideally, the straps should be adjustable over the eyelet so that they do not slip and remain stable.
