How to Choose the Right Eye Glass Frames

Choosing eye glasses can be an anxiety-provoking experience.  After all, they are going to be your daily fashion accessory through thick and thin displayed front and center upon your face.  But whatever you do, do not panic!  Here are a few easy tips to keep in mind when shopping for eye glasses that will help you pick the right frames.

Choose Eye Glass Frames for your Face Shape

Perhaps the most important consideration in eye glass frames is face shape; is yours round, oval, square, triangle, heart-shaped?  Remember, you want your eye glass frames to accent your most lovely features.  In the case of face shape, this means contrasting the shape of your face with the shape of your frames.  Round faces, for instance, will look best with angular, narrow frames.  A square face, on the other hand, will look best with narrow ovals to soften broad lines.  They say that opposites attract; have a look in the mirror and find the opposite of your face shape for the most attractive look.

Choose Eye Glass Frame Color for your Coloring

Think about your coloring (that is skin tone, eye color, and hair color).  Is your palate “warm” based (with an underlying yellow/peaches and cream/golden tone) or “cool” based (with an underlying blue/strawberry blonde/ash gray tone)?  You want the color of your frame to complement your palate; warm-toned individuals should steer themselves towards khaki, gold, off-white, or warm turquoise glass frames while cool-toned individuals should look for silver, magenta, jade, or blue glass frames.  The one contrast you can play up is your eye color; you might think of finding a glass frame that opposes your eye color on the color wheel in order to play up those baby blues (…browns, greens, or hazels!).

While it may seem like a lot to take in, sometimes professional help is best.  If you are in the market for a new pair of eye glasses, be sure to visit Lone Star Vision for help with all of your vision-related needs.
