Here are some expert tips for finding the perfect frame for you!
Consider these important things:
FACE SHAPE, HAIR COLOR, SKIN COLOR, AND PERSONAL STYLE
1) FACE SHAPE
Oval Shaped Face
Many styles looks good on this face shape, you are lucky! Experiment with different sized frames to find a style that balances shape and size well.
Add some length and slim your face with a square frame. Make sure the frame is slightly wider than your face to balance it out.
Try to make the forehead appear narrower by using a frame that is round at the top and square at the bottom. An aviator or cat-eye frame would be perfect for you!
Long, narrow Face
Shorten the face and add some width by keeping the frame within the borders of the face. This will make it appear wider. Also, an oversized frame will balance out the length. Think large round frames or a tighter wrap frame.
2) HAIR COLOR
Basic color theory says that complementary colors will always look good together, so choose a frame that accents your hair color vs blending in with your hair. Greens and red hair, purples and blonde hair, blues and brown hair will always look nice. You can go with a small pop of color in a multi-layered frame or one with small details, or you can go bold with a big bright frame if you don’t mind the attention that may bring!
3) SKIN COLOR
Fair Complexion: Can wear almost any color
Olive: Avoid yellow or green. Pink, red or amber looks great!
Yellow: Avoid yellow, gold or green. Use pink, brown red or amber-like the olive toned wearers
Pink: If you have pink undertones, then avoid wearing pink, red or orange. Stick with cool colors. Also good with cool browns.
Gray: Avoid black, gray, brown or metallic. Use pink, green or amber.
4) PERSONAL STYLE
Above everything else – listen to your heart! As Marie Kondo says, live a life that sparks joy! If a frame calls to you from the shelf, try her on! Trends are always evolving and classic styles are always being re-imagined. If you want a certain look there are probably six frames that fit the bill, we will help you narrow down which ones are the best fit, color, and shape for you while still nailing the look.
