Designer glasses and Sunglasses are seen by many as the ultimate fashion accessory. For some, what type of Frames they are wearing is a statement about themselves. Nevertheless, when choosing designer frames, there are a few factors to consider.
There are literally thousands of different types of frames available. It is important to choose a frame that will suit your face. Try on many different types before buying. If you have a long face, then you are probably suited to larger glasses, and smaller faces look better with smaller square frames.
The colour of the frames is also important. Choose a colour that compliments your natural skin tone and hair colour. The frames can drastically alter the shape and look of a face, so make sure you choose the correct type. Take a friend with you when choosing; he or she will be able tell you whether you look good in the glasses or not.
The budget you have to spend on frames should also be a factor when choosing a pair. Price ranges vary, and you should weigh up whether you will be wearing the glasses enough to warrant spending a large amount. There are many designer glasses to choose from with equally designer price tags.If you are looking for good quality Frames at reasonable prices, try shopping online. There are plenty of websites and bidding sites where you can buy high price glasses at a fraction of the usual cost.
So which frame matches your face?
Assumptions: If you want to draw a cross that looks stable and balanced, the horizontal axis should cross the vertical axis at its exact 2/3 point. Because when the horizontal axis meets the vertical axis at a higher joint point, the vertical axis visually looks longer. If the horizontal axis crosses the vertical one right at the central point, the vertical axis will look shorter than its actual length. So if we draw a cross on a human face and eye brows represent the horizontal axis while the vertical axis is the length of your face, then you might have a face that is quite balanced depending on the heights of your eye brows. To this kind of face, any type of frame is suitable for you because you have a face with perfect scale. To those faces that are bit long or short, choosing the right frames can help adjust the scales and make the ‘crosses’ perfect. The frame you choose to wear must match your facial shape. Otherwise it could emphasis the shortage of your face and has a negative impact on your appearance. For instance, if you have a slightly long face, darker-coloured frames are recommended because they can visually lower the height of your eye brows and shorten the length of your face. For short faces, rimless frames are perfect for you because they can raise the height of your eye brows. We will talk about this in more details later. The other important standard we should look at when we are choosing a frame is the line of your chin and jaw. This is very important because choosing a suitable frame can make your face look smaller and thinner.
For Long Faces – Dark Coloured Frames
As we mentioned before, dark-coloured frames with low bars are strongly recommended because they can shorten the lengths of your face. And for people who have strong personalities, glasses with broad brimmed frames are always the best because they can emphasis the eyes and make people not pay attention to the length of your face. For those long faces with sharp chins, rectangular plank material frames are perfect choices. You will find that they can magically make your faces look smaller.
For Short Faces – Rimless Frames
Opposite to long faces, people who have short faces should choose rimless frames with high bars to visually make your faces longer. If you have a squared chin, rectangular rimless frames can visually extend the length of your face and make it look more proportional. However, round-shaped frames can make your face look rounder so this type of frames is not recommended.
For Asymmetrical Faces – Dark Coloured Plastic Material Frames
A lot of People with asymmetrical eyes choose to wear mental frame glasses, but they can still look leaned to one side because both eyes are not on the same height. If you wear a pair of dark coloured plastic material frames, you eyes will look more symmetrical and balanced.
For Round Faces – Rectangular Frames
Round-faced people are suggested to choose rectangular frames, especially to those office workers. A pair of rectangular frame glasses will make you look tougher and smarter, as round faces always bring others the gentle and easygoing feelings about you. From an aesthetic point of view, round faces usually have plumpy chins. Therefore, rectangular frames can bring some edges to your face. You should avoid round frames because they will make your face look rounder. Broad brimmed frames are recommended too, but you need to adjust the tightness of the legs to make them be worn comfortably.
For Oval Faces – Oval Frames
Oval faced people can wear any type of frames because the proportions are perfect. Although any frame looks good on you, oval frames are considered the best choice because they can help emphasize the great proportion of your face.
For Square Faces – Round Frames
Squared-faced people tend to have wide cheeks and short faces, which make them look tough and independent. To soften the facial lines, round frames are strongly recommended because they can make the cheeks look narrower. Another reason is you have got an edged chin already, choosing a rectangular frame will emphasize your shortage. You should avoid broad brimmed frames and choose the ones that are wider than your face so that your face will look smaller. If your face is quite flat, dark-coloured frames and lenses should be suitable for you because they tend to reveal your lineament and reduce the flatness of your face. If your eyes are not very big, try to choose the ones with dark-coloured lenses to enhance them. Contrarily, if your eyes are big enough, light-coloured lenses can style you perfectly. That also applies to people with dark skins, white and pink frames and lenses can are extremely suitable for you.
For Flat Faces – Coloured Frames And Lenses
