This fall, try changing up your look with a pair of new eyeglass frames. For some, choosing eyeglasses can seem overwhelming. With so many choices, how can you be sure to get it right? Luckily, you don’t need to hire a fashion expert to make the right choice. By following these basic tips, you can rest assured that the frames you choose will look fantastic on you.
Know what looks good on your face
The key to selecting the best frames for your face is to remember that opposites attract. If you have a round face, get frames that are rectangular or square. If you have a square face, search for frames that are oval or round. For those with a heart-shaped face, select frames that balance your face like those with curved edges. If you have a diamond face shape, cat eye or oval frames will look great on you.
Understand your skin tone
If you have a warm skin tone (the cast to your skin is golden or yellow), stay away from pastels, black, and white frames. Light tortoise or brown shades will look incredible on you. If you have a cool skin tone (your complexion has a tone of pink or blue) avoid colors that wash your coloring out. Instead, search for a dark tortoise, pink, purple, blue, or gray.
Know your lifestyle
You don’t have to select just one style of eyeglasses. Maybe you’re all professional during the workweek but like to show your fun side on the weekend. Your eyeglasses can reflect that. Find an exciting color of frames to show off some personality or select a pair that has exciting embellishments. Also, if you are the athletic type, search out eyeglass frame brands that are made for a more active lifestyle. If you are a gamer, there are eyeglasses for that too!
