How often should you change up your glasses frames?
I'm a big fan of my glasses. I usually will try and get a few years out of my frames before I move onto new ones.
I was wondering, from a style standpoint, how often do people usually change their frames?

I didn't change my last frames for 4 years. I only change them as often as I need to change my lenses. Then again I have an ocular deficiency and I can't order glasses online because my prism lenses have to be placed in the frames just so. If I could order online with my script I would probably get new ones every year.
Glasses are the only accessory you wear every day and beyond that they are on your face. So it needs to fit your face perfectly and compliment your wardrobe. If you feel what you have is lacking in one of those aspects then it's time for a new pair. If you change what you wear drastically and it no longer matches your style then it is time to change your frames. Similarly, if your weight changes and your face shape changes then you might need to reevaluate your frames and what would look best with your new face shape.
Edit: a word. If you would like a photo of my old vs my new glasses I would be happy to oblige.

I keep mine for a few years at a time. I have had the ones I wear now for about 3-4 years. I still love them, and I still get comments on them all the time. I had my previous pair for about the same amount of time.
I don't have a second pair, but I have old pairs I can wear in a pinch/in case of emergency. I also have one pair of prescription sunglasses.
