Styles of Eyeglass Frames

Eyeglasses come in many different shapes and styles, so it’s best to first decide what type of style you like best. If you’re having troubling deciding, you should consider the following:

The Shape of Your Face

The shape of your face will be a tell-tale sign of what glasses to choose. With the wide variety of glasses out there, most of them are designed with a specific type of face shape in mind. Whether you have a round face or an oval face, talking to an eye care specialist will help point you in the right direction. 

Matching Colors

When shopping around for new glasses, many people tend to choose a certain color that they like best. While that’s an important factor to consider, it’s vital to choose a color that matches your skin. If you have a warm skin tone, it’s best to stay away from white or black frames. Browns, golds, and olive green colors go best with this type of skin color. For a cool skin tone, try silver, black, or grey colors. 

Your Lifestyle

Since you’ll be using these glasses probably every day, it’s best to choose frames that fit your lifestyle. Will you be using these frames at the computer a lot? Are you playing any sports with these on? By figuring out where you’ll use your glasses, it’ll help you pick frames best suited for your life.
