There are many things to take into consideration when selecting your ideal pair of glasses. Not every style is flattering on every person. Here’s a list of things to take into consideration when choosing a pair of glasses as well as style suggestions.
- You need to take into consideration the shape of your face.
The shape of the frames you should select should be in contrast to the shape of your face.
People with round faces, for example, should wear frames that are narrow, angular and rectangle shaped in order to elongate their faces and thin them out. Whereas people with oval shaped faces look best when they wear frames that are as wide as or wider than the broadest part of their face.
- The size of your frames should be in scale with the size of your face.
- You should select a style that highlights your best features (For example a green-eyed person should choose green frames).
- You should take your coloring and complexion into consideration when selecting the color of your frames.
People have either cool (blue-based) or warm (yellow- based) coloring, so they should therefore, choose frames that match their coloration. The main features that determine one’s coloration are your skin tone, eye and hair color. If you are a cool complexion then your best bet would be to choose frames that are silver, gray, plum, pink or black. While warm complexions look best in frames that are khaki, gold, off-white, peach or red.
- Consider your lifestyle.
If you are really active and involved a lot of outdoors activities, you should consider the durability of the frames they choose. If you’re a gamer, there are even glasses that help enhance your gaming experience. And since there are so many different types of glasses that are designed to accommodate multiple lifestyles you should have no trouble finding one that matches yours.
