Your eyes are often the first item most people notice about you. This is why, if you wear eyeglasses, you should use a pair that complements not only your face, but your eyes and personality as well.
To help you find eyeglass frames that are perfect for you, here are some things you should remember:
Know Your Face Shape
Ever wondered why some eyeglasses look great on your friend or on the window display, but doesn’t seem as good on you? Probably because they aren’t compatible with your face shape. The first thing you should remember is that the shape of your face will determine what kind of frames can enhance your overall look.
Your eye doctor wants you to know that opposites attract. If you have a round face, choose frames that are square or rectangular to balance out your round features, making your face seem longer and slimmer. If you have a square face that’s usually accented by a strong jaw, on the other hand, round or oval eyeglasses can soften your angular features.
Frame Colors Should Match Your Skin Tone
Just as your face shape helps determine what type of eyeglass frames you should get, so does the color of your skin. If you have bronze, yellow or golden skin, neutral colors are flattering on your warm complexion. On the other hand, jewel and dark frame colors can enhance a skin that has cool pink or blue undertones.
Consider Your Lifestyle
Just as you have shoes for different daily activities, the same goes for eyeglasses. There are frames for every lifestyle. If the bulk of your day involves having to sit in front of a computer or digital device, you may want to consider getting eyeglasses that are computer safe. If you’re on the sporty side, you can also get sports eyeglasses. Your optometrist can also recommend other specialty lenses or lens coatings based on our findings from your eye exam.
