How To Pick The Best Frames For Your Next Pair Of Glasses

Posted on

If you have to have glasses, then you'll want to choose the right frames, since you'll be wearing them for quite a while. There are so many to choose from that you'll be overwhelmed if you go into the store not having any idea what you are looking for. This is why it's best to have at least an idea of some of the things you prefer and things you don't like. Here are some tips to help you decide on the right frames.

High fashion frames have their place

You may really like high fashion frames that have bling on them. However, can you really see yourself wanting to wear them every day, even when you are working out at the gym or taking the dog to the dog park? If you are set on those high fashion frames, you may want to get them as a second pair, that way you can wear your fancy glasses only for the times when you are dressed up.

Frames should fit the shape of your face

Have you ever noticed how one person can put on a pair of glasses and they look great on them, then a friend can ask to try them, and they look horrible in them? This is due to the shape of the frames and the shape of their faces. You want to steer clear from purchasing frames that have the same shape as your face has, or it will overly accentuate that shape, which can make you look less favorable than you may wish.

Frames need to be the right length

Frames are designed to have different lengths to them, so they fit different sized faces. When you try on a pair of glasses, you want to make sure they fit around your ears correctly. If they don't, then you are going to have issues with them sliding down off your face each time you lean forward. If they fit too tightly around your ears, then the constant pressure can end up giving you headaches.

Frames need to be the right color

Frames should be a color that complements the color of your eyes. If you have green eyes, then brown, black, or dark green frames can look good. If you have blue eyes, then black, dark blue, light blue, dark gray, or purple frames can look great with your eyes. Try them on and take pictures with them on to see how they really look.
