Choosing frames for your eyeglasses can be tricky. You want the frames to be comfortable, flattering and reflective of your personal style, and finding a pair that fulfills all these requirements can be easier said than done.
In today’s post, your local provider of eyeglasses, Vision Care Plus, helps you determine which type of frames would suit you best:
Good-fitting frames aren’t just comfortable–they’re flattering. It’s important to know your size before picking a frame. You can base the size of your new pair from your previous prescription. The size can be seen inside the arm of the glasses or the bridge.
Visit your local optometrist at Vision Care Plus to ensure you have the right size of prescription glasses. We also offer disposable, bifocal and rigid gas permeable contact lenses.
You should also pick a frame that will complement your face shape. The symmetry and balance of oval-shaped faces make almost every frame style look good.
Rectangular frames with bold, squared edges flatter round-shaped faces. Cat-eye and retro wingtip frames will also work well.
If you have a square face, consider frames that will contrast with your face shape like oval, browline, round and aviator. Frames with a wider and bolder top will look good on people with a triangular face.
Consider choosing a frame that goes wider than your brows and has a deep base if you have a heart-shaped face. Good options include retro wingtip and aviator frames.
Your skin tone can help determine the frame color that will look good on you. Those with neutral skin tones can wear almost any color of frames.
Stay away from pastels, along with white and black, if you have a warm skin tone. Instead, opt for neutral colors like light tortoise, browns gold, honey and olive green.
Cool skin tones have a pink undertone. If you have this skin tone, consider blue, silver, gray, green or clear frames. Gold and black frames should be avoided because they can clash with your complexion.
Aside from the style of frame, it’s important to have the right prescription to ensure you can see clearly.
