Finding the Perfect Frame for Your Style and Personality

Your eyes are the windows to your soul, and as such, identifying the perfect pair of eyeglasses can be a very difficult and daunting task. Your eyes give away a great deal of your personality and what you are about, and your glasses are capable of doing the same. You want to make sure that when you choose a pair of glasses that you are choosing a pair that accurately reflects your unique style and personality. There are many options available to you, as men’s glasses and women’s glasses all come in wide array of sizes and styles.
Consider Form and Function
Since these are your eyeglasses, your first goal should be related to function. Your prior history with glasses should help you determine what level of care you are able to give, so with proper self-analysis you can select a frame with the appropriate level of durability. Fortunately, there are very stylish options available in full-rim, half-rim or rimless, so even if you are not terribly meticulous in the care of your glasses, you will be able to find a pair that suits your style.
While designer glasses can be a great option, the prices that these designers often charge are outside of the budgets of a great deal of eyeglass wearers. It is relatively simple to find a more affordable option that allows you to purchase several different style options so you do not have to be limited to a single frame. There are some great companies out there that offer stylish frames that are affordable and can even be customized.
What Do You Want Your Glasses to Say About You?
In addition to helping you to see more clearly, your glasses also possess the ability to help you make a sort of silent announcement of who you are. Given that this is the case, you should take great care and consideration in selecting a frame for your glasses, as you want to ensure that these frames accurately reflect your personality and your sense of style. The easiest way to do this is by putting the glasses on your face, something that can actually be done from home if you use a website that allows you to upload a photo of yourself. From there, you can then see what you look like in many different frames without ever having to leave the comfort of your home.
Match the Frame to the Shape of Your Face
There is a methodology behind selecting the ideal frame, and part of this rationale helps explain why some people look great in a specific frame while others do not. The idea is that you want to find a frame that contrasts the shape of your face, and is scaled to fit your face:
  • An oval or round frame is ideal for people with a square face
  • A rectangular frame is ideal for people with an oval or round face
  • A narrow, round or bottom-heavy frame is ideal for people with a heart-shaped face
Finding the ideal frame may seem very difficult, but through proper care and consideration, you can find a frame that is perfect for you.
