Choosing the Right Eyeglass Frames
Wearing a new pair of glasses is fun, but you might find it challenging to decide on the ones that suit you. For instance, the frames might appear attractive, but they might not fit you well when you try wearing them. Also, you might find a variety of frames and get overwhelmed in choosing the best ones. Fortunately, at Islands Optics, serving Seminole, Madeira Beach, and St. Petersburg, FL, we can help. To narrow down your options, you can use the following tips to find the right frames.
Your face shape is important in determining what frames will look best on you.
An inverted triangular-shaped face has a wide forehead and narrow jaws. If you have this kind of face, our optometrist can establish a balance by recommending eyeglass frames that are slightly wider than your forehead.
An oval-shaped face is highly versatile since it has balanced proportions. If you have an oval face, you will have a narrower jawline and angled and high cheekbones. To ensure that you have a balanced shape, we will offer you frames with the same width as the broadest area of your face.
A round face is characterized by full cheeks, a rounded chin, and a wide forehead. When searching for frames that will suit a round face, you should consider ones that will make your face appear longer and thinner. In particular, narrow, angular, or square frames can suit you. Also, frames that have transparent bridges can be the right options.
These are only some of the many face types. Our staff can examine your face before recommending the best frames for you.
The skin tone of your face can assist in determining the frames that will offer you the best look. In this case, our optometrist will help in identifying the right frames by selecting those that closely match your skin tone.
Warm Skin Tone
If you have a golden, bronze, or yellow cast on your skin, it means that you have a warm complexion. Therefore, you should avoid frames with contrasting colors, including pastels or black and white frames. In particular, olive green, beige, gold, and brown shades are some of the best frame colors for you.
Cool Skin Tone
People with a cool complexion have blue or pink undertones. If you have this complexion, you should choose frames with colors such as gray, blue, purple, pink, black, or silver.
We offer frames that can fit with your lifestyle. Before we recommend any eyeglasses, we will consider the kind of work that you do daily. For instance, if you are a gamer, we can have various stylish frames that will help enhance your gaming experience. On the contrary, if you engage in highly demanding activities, we can offer frames that will bend and twist without breaking.
