How To Choose Fashionable Frames For Everyone In The Family

January 29, 2013

Tips for picking an eyeglasses frame that fit your lifestyle and personality.

When some people discover that their vision is not as sharp as it used to be and that they may need to start wearing prescription eyeglasses, they may become disappointed. Some people look at glasses as an obstruction on your face or a bulky accessory that gets in the way of your day to day interactions. However, when you step back and think about it, glasses are just the opposite!

There is a reason why millions of people with 20/20 vision are still opting to wear eyeglasses day after day―they’re fun and fashionable! Glasses can not only help you to achieve a sophisticated, professional look, but you can also get creative and exciting with all of the different choices of frames and colors available to you.

However, because eyeglasses are at such a prime, central location on your body―they are what everyone looks into when you have a conversation―you want to ensure that you are choosing a pair that compliments your face and your lifestyle.

Whether you are looking to purchase a pair of eyeglasses with the primary purpose of improving your vision, or you simply want a new fashionable accessory to add into your daily wardrobe, we want to help you choose a pair of glasses that compliments you! Here are few tips for finding a fun pair of eyeglass frames for everyone in your family:

Factor In Your Lifestyle

If you are wearing glasses for the purposes of correcting your vision, then they are going to be something that you are wearing day in and day out, in every activity that you participate in. Therefore, you want to ensure that you are choosing a frame that fits with your lifestyle. For instance, are you an active sports player? A fast-paced business professional?  A busy mom? Make sure you factor all of this into your decision.

Choose A Color That’s Right For You

Eyeglasses come in a large variety of different colors, from bright and fun to classic and conservative. When it comes to choosing a color that works best for you, think of what color is most appropriate for your daily life. For instance, classic black, brown and silver frames may be great for adults who want to impress their business clients and colleagues. Bright red, pink or blue frames may be more fun for kids or students who want to make a statement.

Compliment Your Face Shape

Believe it or not, eyeglasses are not one shape fits all. For instance, one glasses frame that looks great on someone who has a long, thin face may look out of proportion on someone whose face shape is round. Therefore, experiment with different sizes and shapes to determine which frame looks best on your face shape. It’s best to choose frames that are at least as wide as the widest part of your face, then play around with different shapes from there.

Which types of glasses frames do you find work best for your lifestyle and face shape? Do you have any tips for new glasses wearers who are looking to find the perfect pair of frames? Be sure to share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
