Eyeglasses serve an important purpose. We want them to work properly but we also want them to look great. Choosing the perfect eyeglasses frame may seem challenging because of the overwhelming number of choices. We can make this decision easier by understanding how to pick the best frame for our specific features. Choosing the right frame is a matter of knowing which style best suits your face size, shape, and your overall coloring. Below is an explanation of how to select the most appropriate frame for your face.
This is the easiest characteristic to determine. You simply want a frame that fits the scale of your face. In other words, a small face needs small frames. A large face should have larger frames. Having the correct size creates balance and symmetry. You have likely seen people wearing incorrect sized glasses. For example, a tiny elderly lady with a very small face wearing giant glasses. Or a man with a full round face wearing tiny glasses. When the scale does not match it creates an awkward appearance. So, simply choose frames that fit the size of your face.
The shape of your face is another important determining factor when selecting eyewear. There are seven basic face shapes and particular frame styles that best match those shapes. They are as follows:
People have either warm or cool based coloring. We look best in colors that represent our color base. Eyewear is no exception. Select colors that complement your color base. A person with a cool color base has a skin tone with blue or pink undertones. A warm complexion has yellow undertones. Olive skin is considered cool. Hair color and eye color play a secondary role in determining your color base but skin tone is the primary determining factor. Frame colors best suited for people with warm coloring are camel, gold, copper, khaki, peach, orange, coral, and red. Frame colors best suited for people with cool coloring are black, silver, blue-gray, plum, magenta, pink, and jade.
There is no need to struggle with choosing the perfect eyeglasses. By understanding your face size, shape, and your overall coloring, you can make the perfect choice. Contact us for more information and assistance.
