Young women are prancing around music festivals and commuting to work with their sunglasses (or regular glasses) attached to stylish chain necklaces like the whole thing was their idea. And OK, fine. Those eyeglass chains look cool, even if wearing it in the front is kind of doing it wrong.
But let’s just say it out loud that glasses chains were the elder set’s thing first? Because we need reading glasses. And we need to put them on take them off put them on take them off put them on take them off repeat 500 times every damn day.
How many times a day you need to take off those cute sunnies? Once or twice? I’m just saying.
Also, retailers, take some pictures of models who have earned some lines on their faces. They are the ones buying the majority of your dang glasses chains.
Still, with the youth involved, that means there are more chic styles available than ever, and we can’t complain about that. So, without further ado, here are a few of our favorites for your shopping pleasure! Be sure to check out the ones with lemons, so cute.
This colorful chain is cheery enough to get us hyped for reading even the dyes emails.

These certainly should not be relegated to use with sunglasses.
These come in a bunch of colors including black, amber, tortoiseshell and white, and as noted above they look particularly amazing with thick glasses like those from Caddis.
These clear but chunky numbers are for those who are looking for an impossible vibe: subtly bold.
These gold dipped seashells are a bohemian sophisticate’s dream.
When life gives you lemons, for instance realizing that you’re squinting to read your email, adorn your reading glasses with a cacophony of glass lemons and just try and stay in a bad mood.
