Four tips when choosing the perfect pair of eyeglasses

We are often asked if there are any rules or guidelines when looking for a new pair of glasses.

I would not say that there are rules but there is definitely a set of easy to follow guidelines that everyone should consider when looking for the perfect pair of glasses.

1. Consider your Face Shape

Look for a frame that compliments your face shape. The right frame must contrast and not assimilate your face shape. A frame that assimilates your face shape will simply further amplify its shape.

2. Consider the Colors

Look for a frame that compliments the tone of your skin. If you have a light skin tone try warm-toned neutrals or more saturated shades. If you have a darker skin tone, look for color that create contrasts, symmetry and balance to your best facial attributes.

3. Think about your Lifestyle

Think of the activities in which you will use your glasses and make sure the frame you choose and the treatments on your lenses complement those activities.

4. Don't forget your Personality

Your glasses should compliment your best attribute.

If people know you as fashionable, make sure that your glasses are in line with that statement.

If you consider yourself bold, make sure that your dark bold frame helps you make that statement.
