She’s the one we want special recipes from and to give us a little praise for our achievements in life whether we’re 5 or 55.
Here’s our round-up of favorite glasses for mothers and women of all face shapes, skin colors and ages:
Sparkle and Shine
Zenni 233124 $12.95
Emerald Green is Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013 and the outer edges of this frame sure do this hue justice! The look is translucent just like the emerald gemstone and this plastic, half-rim frame has a nice rectangular design that’s very fashionable. The added bonus detailing on the temple arms is perfect for today’s mom as it combines traditional floral elements with a contemporary, stylized design.
Oval Yet Square
Sqoval anyone? Whatever you want to call the lens shape of this fashionable tortoiseshell frame, it tends to be super-flattering on a wide variety of face shapes and skin tones. There’s also no age limit as this contemporary look on a classic style of frame can equally suit a first-time mom or a great grandma.
Crystals and Flowers
The centers of the beautifully-delicate flowers on the temple arms of this elegant, burgundy frame are sparkling, clear crystals. The frosted, translucent background of the sweeping floral pattern adds further sophistication and style appeal. Hopefully, mom will get a break and be able to wear this glamorous frame for an elegant night on the town.
The Perfect Pattern
This new arrival tortoiseshell frame has an attractive, random pattern that’s season-spanning and stylish. The temple arms feature a triple cut-out design to add even more appeal to its geek chic, trendy styling. It’s available in bifocal and progressive prescriptions as well as single vision ones, so every mom can look her best.
Pretty in Purple
Grandmothers as well as first-time moms tend to be flattered by this perfectly purple, acetate half-rim, fashion frame. Its color and medium size seem to adjust awesomely to a variety of eye colors, skin tones, face shapes and ages. There’s even a pretty silver accent at each temple for added glamor.
Lean and Green
This is a compact, lightweight frame that’s ideal for Spring/Summer 2013. Available only in single vision prescriptions, the appealing green finish is metal alloy with hypoallergenic stainless steel at the temples. The nose pads help keep a busy mom’s glasses in place while the coated temple arm tips provide added comfort. At this amazing price, this is one must-have frame!

With a gorgeous, deep blue front on this trendy half-rim frame, you also get dreamy lighter blues on white temple arms. All that fabulous blue and white adds up to one refreshingly- styled, contemporary frame to suit any mom, mom-to-be or grandma. Really, this is the ideal Summer 2013 frame for women and moms of any age, as it flatters many faces while looking as fresh as a ocean breeze!
Open to Style
This is a smokin’ look hot off the press! This frame offers great value as it will not only coordinate with a spring or summer wardrobe, but will transition nicely with fall and winter fashions. (Think slim-fitting, tailored coats!) The frame’s open temple design in eye-catching, ornamental metal will accent any mom’s unique style.

By now, it shouldn’t be a secret that awesome glasses can be had on even the strictest eye care budget. Not only that, it can be downright satisfying to find good quality, affordable eyewear that’s also trendy and stylish. Everyone loves a bargain and why pay more than you have to for eyeglasses that make you look good while helping you see better? Here’s our top Under $20 trendy glasses picks for women for 2013:
Here’s one fashionably fabulous frame that makes our heart skip a beat. The perfect shade of red and a trendy translucent look combine for a modern, medium- sized frame to punch up your wardrobe in any season. From accessorizing bright, warm weather hues to enlivening cold weather dark tones, this delicious red frame is just right as a trendy fashion accessory that you can wear anywhere. Try it on because you may be happily surprised. Many face shapes and skin tones are flattered by this frame!
We’re in love with this doubly cool frame that looks like it should cost a lot more than it does. The translucent front section is a cool pale blue just so right for Spring/Summer 2o13. It makes us think of refreshing ice in poolside drinks, but this trendy frame is also ideal for the office. Imagine wearing the Zenni 271516 with a lightweight blouse paired with business length dress shorts or a Summer suit. The arms of these glasses are cool in an arty way and are lightweight to provide well-fitting comfort. The arm pattern features contrasting warmer tones combined with blue and white to add up to one practical, wearable fashion accessory slash vision corrector!
This sophisticated, full rim frame is made of durable, two-toned plastic for a reliable “go to” pair of glasses. The transparent look is trending now and the clear center front combined with the translucent brown edges add such superb style at a very affordable price. Another plus of this Zenni 237823 fashion frame is that it tends to flatter a wide range of face shapes, skin tones and ages although it also works best on smaller faces.
Tortoiseshell is on the hot trends list for both Spring/Summer 2013 and Fall/Winter 2013. In Fashion Week in New York in February, tortoiseshell sunglasses were shown with soft grays and black in coat, pant and sweater combinations. One of Pantone’s trendy neutrals for Spring/Summer 2013 is a soft, pale, peachy-tan called “Linen” which can be worn with tortoiseshell eyewear for awesome updated looks for vacation styles or office wear. We like to accessorize tortoiseshell glasses with a big, stylish tote bag in leather or straw.
This hypoallergenic stainless steel frame is like a breath of fresh air and just as easy to wear. The trendy, rectangular style has an airy appeal plus adjustable, silicone nose pads to help prevent slipping. The half rim combined with the dark blue color makes these Zenni 555116 eyeglasses a great bargain to wear through all of the seasons. This frame looks super-flattering on many different face shapes, ages and skin colors.
What an affordable way to own the transparent eyewear trend — literally! This durable, plastic frame in cool, translucent blue offers a clean, refreshing style essence that’s ideal for the watery blues and minty greens seen in fashions for Spring/Summer 2013. Wearing this frame is a great way not only to stay on the transparent accessory trend, but also change up darker, heavier frames that you may have worn in the Winter. The short lens height and medium-narrow width bring the focus where it should be — to your eyes. Stay and look cool this Summer with this Zenni 807116 fashion frame!
