As an avid wearer of prescription eyeglasses for the last 20 years, I know that it’s incredibly hard to find the perfect pair. But the right pair can speak volumes about your personality. The eyes are the window to the soul, after all. So I jumped at the chance to try out GlassesUSA.com and their online try-on service to find myself a new pair of stylish glasses. I’m excited to share with you a fun process for how to buy prescription glasses online, complete with current eyeglasses trends and my new pair of Muse X Hilary Duff glasses (they’re clear!), available exclusively at GlassesUSA.com.

Eyeglasses come in what seem like a billion sizes, shapes, and colors, making the choices endless. But lately, I’ve really been coveting the clear, nude, and blush colored glasses I’ve seen on celebrities and social media influencers. They bring me back to when I was a little girl, and my mom wore a pair of oversized, clear glasses as her daily look. How fun that this trend is back in fashion!
Since I already own two really classic pairs of tortoise shell glasses – which go well with my hair color and skin tone – I thought it would be great to try a trendier pair. I often get eyewear-envy when I see someone with a cool pair of glasses, and I always wish I could pull off her statement look.
So I decided this eyeglasses trend – clear eyeglasses – would become my statement look. It’d be something different, something fun, something that would make me feel confident and beautiful. And I’m so happy to report that I’ve fallen in love with the pair I chose! It’s no small feat to figure out how to buy prescription glasses online, but the GlassesUSA.com virtual try-on service is incredibly fun and easy to use.
I love Hilary Duff’s style, and I’d seen Hilary Duff’s glasses from her new Muse x Hilary Duff collection (available exclusively at GlassesUSA.com) and I knew I wanted a pair. I loved that this Hilary Duff glasses collection was designed by a celebrity mom – someone who has spent years being styled for the public eye (no pun intended). And since the foundation of LUXYMOM is to show you ladies how to have the style of the It Girls, it really just made sense.
I’d also been seeing the ads for these styles in my Pinterest feed, and I thought they were adorable. So I knew I had to try them out as my next pair. I figured they’d be a nice addition to my already classic eyewear collection, and would add a little flair when I was in need of some.
The picture of Hilary Duff above, from GlassesUSA.com’s Instagram feed, shows one of the gorgeous pairs of Hilary Duff frames in a transparent blush shade. So stunning. And mine are pictured below. You can see that I chose the Eva style in Crystal Clear.
Buying prescription eyeglasses is a challenge no matter what. It’s a pretty hard proposition to find the right pair to suit your face shape, your coloring, and your personal style. And until now, I’ve only ever bought eyeglasses in a store. I’ve never purchased them online.
But when I browsed GlassesUSA.com to select a pair, I found that they have a really easy-to-use tool that lets you virtually try on as many glasses as you want. They make the process easy, convenient, and fun for moms like us who have no extra minutes in our days, and who are really picky about what we wear.
As a nice bonus, they provide a really risk-free way to shop. They understand that the process of buying glasses online can be challenging for some, so they offer free shipping plus a 14-day return policy. I love a customer-friendly policy like this, and I think it makes the decision to buy online that much easier.
To virtually try on glasses, you literally just use your computer’s camera to snap a photo of yourself through their website (you can also upload a pic if that’s easier), and as you’re flipping through all of their different glasses, you can see how each pair will look on your face. It gives you a really good idea whether you’ll like the pair and if they’ll fit your face.
I Chose The Eva style, in Crystal Clear, from the Muse x Hilary Duff eyeglasses collection. They’re a beautiful pair of clear white glasses, and I loved them from the moment they arrived. The color and style are so fun and so different from my other glasses, and I knew I was going to have fun styling them with all types of outfits. They’re a somewhat larger size frame than what I normally wear. It seems that whenever I’m fitted by a professional in an eyeglass store, they always sway me to a slightly smaller frame, even though I’m often attracted to ones like this pair. So I got to really follow my gut with this one, and I’m so glad I did!
Clear eyeglasses are a fun challenge to style. With my fair skin and light (green) eyes, they have the potential to wash me out. So in order to combat this, I decided to go with a bold eye makeup look to add just the pop of color behind the frames, to make them really stand out. I think this did just the trick, as I’ve found them to be really striking.
Your options run both ends of the color spectrum, from snowy white to bold colors. I wanted to show you how to style them both ways in this article. From a striking blue menswear shirt (thanks to my husband, and sorry I wrinkled your new shirt), to a Guipure Lace blouse, both structured tops help these eyeglasses stand out.
The Hilary Duff eyewear I’m wearing in this article will also go beautifully with any of these maxi dress outfits; any of these casual mom outfits; even a cute SJP inspired outfit, or a great pair of mom jeans.
