Choosing The Right Eyeglasses

Picking new frames can be one of the most fun steps during the purchase of new glasses, but it can also be time-consuming if you are not quite sure what you are looking for. Luckily, a little bit of advance consideration can narrow down your options and give you more time to really think about each choice.

Face Shape:
Generally, you want the shape of your frames to contrast with the shape of your face. This means that people with square jaws and/or foreheads tend to look better with rounded glasses and vice versa. Whether you go with a strong contrast or a weak one is up to you, and people with faces that are not strongly rounded or square might need to try a few different looks before they decide.

Face Size:
The size of the frames should complement the size of your face. Choosing overly large frames on petite features can cause an imbalance in your appearance. So can small frames on a broader face. Keeping your glasses to scale with your facial features will prevent both issues.

Complement Yourself:
You can offset the contrast between your facial shape and your frames by choosing a color that complements your features. For example, if you have green eyes, you might choose green frames. Complementing your own features does not necessarily mean matching, though. That same person might also choose gold or brown frames, since both complement green strongly.
Once you have a clear idea of the kinds of colors and frame styles that will probably go well with your features, the next step is the fun step. Try some on! There is a reason that eyeglass stores and eye doctors keep so many mirrors around. When you find the pair that looks and feels right, you will know it.
