Small, flat earrings are still considered a fine fashion accessory, but they’re not the same as big, wide, wide-angle ones.
According to a new study, that’s not the case.
A new study suggests that the way people wear their glasses, earrings and rings doesn’t correlate well with how well they look, according to a news report from CNN.
The study was conducted by University of Iowa anthropologist Jennifer Schuetz, who said she found the results surprising.
“I think it’s really interesting that glasses are seen as a great, high fashion accessory,” Schuets study’s lead author, Michael J. Trewin, told CNN.
“But what we find is that people have very different opinions about what glasses are and what they’re really good for.”
Schuets team surveyed 1,600 adults over six months, asking about how they felt about glasses and their use as accessories, according the report.
“The glasses are definitely still considered fashion accessories, and so if you don’t wear glasses you’re really kind of in a very strange place in terms of what you’re supposed to be wearing,” said Trewins research associate.
Schuetz said the results surprised her because it was the first study to investigate the issue.
“We wanted to understand the relationship between wearing glasses and how people view glasses in terms, I think, of fashion,” she said.
Trewins study showed that the majority of the respondents said they’d wear glasses if they could.
But there was one group who thought it was acceptable to wear glasses for the purpose of fashion.
“If you’re wearing a pair of glasses and you’re in a room, then the glasses are going to look nice and not make people uncomfortable,” said Schuitz.
But the study also found that the perception of glasses as fashion accessories is more important than the actual glasses themselves.
“What we find here is that it’s not about whether you wear glasses or not, it’s whether you’re using glasses or whether you don [use them],” said Trippin.
Schulitz and Trewings study also showed that wearing glasses for fashion was more important for women than men.
The results suggest that women were more likely to be swayed by the fashion factor when it comes to wearing glasses.
“When it comes down to the glass, if it’s made of glass, I don’t think you’re going to get as many compliments as you might think,” said Jennifer Schüetz, University of Ia…
