Your eyes are some of the first things that draw other’s attention. This is why if you’re wearing eyeglasses, you should pick a pair that complements your features. Today, Dr. Joel H. McGahen, OD, shares tips on finding your perfect eyeglass frames.
Consider Your Face Shape
The first thing we need to establish is your face shape. Choose a frame that contrasts your prominent features, adding balance to your appearance. Oval or round frames, for example, can help soften a strong jaw that’s characteristic of square-shaped faces. These styles also work on heart-shaped faces. Rectangular frames, on the other hand, add an illusion of length to a round face. Consider yourself lucky if you have an oval face since most frame contours work for you.
Think About Your Skin, Hair, and Eye Color
Your complexion is another factor to consider when choosing your eyeglasses. If you have warm undertones, your optometrist may suggest neutral- or earth-colored frames. Meanwhile, jewel tones look great on those with cool skin colors. Picking a pair that’s the same color as your eyes is a great way to highlight them. For a striking and memorable look, try on a frame that has contrasting hues with your hair.
Define Your Personality and Lifestyle
Since you’ll be wearing your eyeglasses most of the time, it’s important that they match your personality. Express your artistic and creative side by choosing a frame with quirky details and bold colors. It’s also a good idea to have a pair with classic details that you can wear at work.
Your eye doctor may recommend sports eyeglasses for those with active lifestyles. They are usually made of polycarbonate lenses and durable frame materials. They are less likely to break, ensuring their many years’ worth of performance.
