After all, you don't want to end up looking like this! :-)
Here are three True Colors Tips to consider when choosing your next pair of eyeglasses. It will save you time and mistakes!
Whether you're shopping for clothes or eyewear, I recommend the same procedure:
#1: COLOR - Select colors that complement your skin and eye color
#2: STYLE - The shape and style should balance your facial features
#3: FIT - Make sure the glasses sit comfortably
On the other hand, if your best colors are mustard-gold, dark orange and other "autumn" colors, you will ROCK a tortoise-shell frame (I bought the Lucky Brand glasses below).
Your face shape pretty much determines your frame shape. In general, I like to mimic your face shape with the frame. If you have a round or heart-shaped face, try a cat-eye, aviator or large wrap frame. Basically you want to match the size and shape of your face.
Another style consideration is the overall "personality" of the glasses. If you have a fun personality your glasses should be fun, too! Play up your sassy style with cat-eye shapes and lots of bling!
If you're more of a quiet observer personality, choose a classic style and you'll feel like the glasses express who you are inside and out.
Your eye care professional will guide you to find the right technical fit around your nose bridge and temples. But, more importantly, just like your clothes, your glasses should fit who you are inside and express your personality. The best judge of that is YOU.
