Make A Spectacle #5: Understated Blue Eyewear

Blue Stepper eyewear with white embroidered shirt

I’ve been working with Stepper for almost 18 months now. I write six posts a year for their blog and choose a spectacle frame to suit the theme. This time it’s blue eyewear. I chose this theme because even if it comes courtesy of a single pair of jeans, most of us have something blue in our wardrobes. It’s an easy-to-wear colour and whether you’re inspired by azure skies or inky seas, there’s a shade to suit every skin tone.

Every time I wear a Stepper spectacle frame, two things strike me. The first is their supreme comfort. They never leave a mark on my nose and because of the material, which I’ll come to later, they’re as light as a feather. The second is their wearability. I adore statement eyewear, but I appreciate understatement too. Stepper eyewear is elegant and subtle; it doesn’t always catch the eye when on the shelf, but it comes alive when it’s on the face.

I often wear a Stepper frame to work and I’ve lost count the number of patients who ask to try the same style. Women of all ages with a chic aesthetic in common. Both men and women are very loyal to Stepper too because of the comfort and quality. Many wouldn’t even consider another brand. I’m also fiercely loyal. Stepper is still a family-run business with brilliant, lovely people at the helm who I’ve met and spent time with. You might remember I went to Stuttgart for a few days last year to visit their HQ (and the beer festival). So it’s with total confidence and conviction that I can and I do recommend Stepper. I wear this brand with pride.

My frame is the STS 30022, colour F550 which is a divine mid-blue. All Stepper plastic frames are made from TX5, a nylon-derived polyamide which is 25% lighter than conventional plastic material. It’s hard-wearing, hypo-allergenic, durable and scratch-resistant.

This blue eyewear is timeless, chic and really rather special. The two-tone side and the hinges add subtle style detail to the overall look; its simplicity equates to versatility. This frame can hold its own in the boardroom and does not look out of place in a cocktail bar. This might just be my new favourite in the STEPPER S range.

    These are really beautiful, Liz. Can a frame like these support a thick lens for someone with really bad eyesight like me? (-6.5 or so)
    I need to hop a train to Skipton sometime this summer and play with frames with you… and go to that restaurant!!! xx

      Hi Lisa, they’re nice and elegant aren’t they. Yes, they could definitely take a -6.50 lens. I’d recommend a high-index though to reduce the weight and thickness. And yes. get on that train!!! xxx

    They’re so smart, Liz – I can see why people won’t wear any other brand… and they don’t leave a mark on the nose, that’s awesome!! The blue REALLY suits you – though to be honest you’d look good in plastic NHS frames with sticky tape holding the arms on, haha!
