Wearing glasses can be a great way to express your personal style while also improving your vision. However, with so many different frames and styles available, it can be overwhelming to choose the perfect pair. In this article, we’ll explore how women can find the perfect glasses to fit their fashion sense.
Firstly, it’s important to consider the shape of your face. Different face shapes will suit different styles of glasses. For example, square faces may suit round or oval-shaped frames, while heart-shaped faces may suit cat-eye or round frames. It’s important to try on a variety of shapes to see what suits your face the best.
Next, consider your personal style. If you prefer a more classic look, then traditional frame shapes such as rectangles or squares may be the best option. For those who prefer a more modern or edgy look, then bold and oversized frames or unique shapes such as hexagons or octagons may be the best choice.
It’s also important to consider the color of the frames. Black, brown, and tortoiseshell frames are classic and versatile, but you may also want to consider bolder colors such as red, pink, or blue to add a pop of color to your outfit.
Another factor to consider is the material of the frames. Metal frames can be a good choice for those who prefer a lightweight and minimalistic look, while acetate frames can offer a wider variety of colors and patterns. If you have sensitive skin or allergies, you may want to consider frames made of hypoallergenic materials such as titanium or plastic.
Finally, it’s important to consider the function of your glasses. If you’ll be wearing your glasses primarily for reading, then smaller frames or half-rimless frames may be the best option. If you need glasses for driving or other activities that require a wider field of vision, then larger frames may be a better choice.
MY TOP TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE PERFECT PAIR OF GLASSES
⦁ Frame shape is everything – the easiest way to remember which shapes work is to remember that opposites attract. So round faces are complemented by square shaped frames and square faces are complemented by rounder frames. To make a shorter face appear longer chose a shorter frame and long faces have more length so you can choose frames that are taller in height.
⦁ Size matters – A good rule of thumb in choosing glasses is they should sit just below your eyebrows and above your cheekbones unless you’re going for a really unique shape like I often do.
⦁ Width is where it’s at – frames that are too wide for your face can make your eyes seem too close together and frames that are too narrow can make your face seem wider and larger than it is.
⦁ Persistence pays off – finding the perfect pair of frames is a bit like shopping for swimwear – you really need to try on as many pairs as possible to find your perfect match. So patience and persistence will always pay off.
⦁ Trust your instinct – the more frames you try on the easier it will be to see what works and what doesn’t work on your face.
⦁ Glasses are a style statement – gone are the days of glasses being for practical purposes only. Choose frames to suit your wardrobe, your fashion sense and remember they make a perfect style statement.
⦁ Consider your lifestyle – when choosing frames it’s important to consider your lifestyle. If you’re a gym bunny who lives in active wear then a pair of oversized, statement frames may not be the most sensible choice. Be sure to think about where and when you intend to wear your frames when it comes to picking the perfect pair. Remember, it might be that you have a few pairs for different occasions. I own numerous pairs to ensure I always have the right frame!
⦁ Consider mens frames or sunglasses – the world truly is your oyster when it comes to choosing the perfect pair so don’t rule out men’s frames and sunglasses – both can work surprisingly well.
⦁ Do your research – before shopping for specs it always pays to do a little research first. I find Pinterest and Instagram the best for finding out what’s hot and what’s not.
