The Perfect Minimalist Accessory: A Stylish Pair of Specs

Living with less means spending less on the things that don’t enrich your life and fill it with bad energy, and more on the things that matter to you.

For a while now I have been decluttering my wardrobe and refining my own personal style, and now I am taking part in #Project333 to really get my clothes down to that perfect capsule collection.

I am a big believer in buying according to your personal style and look. This way, you don’t need to worry that you won’t love an item when you get home, or that you’ll wear it once and then realise it’s not your shape/size/colour.

A large part of that is clothes, but quite often people really overlook their accessories collection. For me, my accessories need to be functional, practical but also look good with my capsule collection. If you know me well, you’ll know I am a regular glasses wearer (you will especially know this if you’ve ever been in a car with me!) This means that I quite often pair my favourite pair of specs with my look for the day.

A lot of people love to invest in their glasses and other accessories, as they wear them on an almost daily basis. I love the idea of pairing both quality and style but also making sure that my frames are affordable so I can spend my money on other experiences. Such as adventuring across Italy or California.

This is why for the last two years I have always got my glasses from Select Specs. They do an amazing range starting at just £6 and then go right up into designer frames at a fraction of the cost on the high street.

I always tend to go for brown tortoise-shell frames as I think it suits my complexion best. I also think that they pair with the colours of my defined personal style really well (if you want to read about this, pop over to this post here and define your own key look).


Oh, and these brown frames are also perfect for making the best flatlays!

This is why I am in love with the Hallmark 8813 glasses that Select Specs sent me this last week. They are easy to pair with anything, insanely durable, and they cost just £29 for the basic frames with a prescription lens.

They come in loads of different styles too. I am currently already considering getting a pair in black to really cement my capsule accessories collection.


Even better, you can add high impact lenses, add a tint to make them into prescription sunglasses as much more for as little as £10.

But honestly, these glasses are the ideal minimalist accessory because they are fashionable, functional and reasonably priced, leaving me with more money to go off and see the world (as long as I remember my specs!)

Have you used Select Specs before? Would you recommend them? What’s your minimalist accessory staple? Let me know in the comments below.
