Well, at Eyeglass World, all we have to say to that is, “If Dorothy Parker could just see us now…”
The right eyeglasses don’t hinder beauty. In fact, they emphasize it. But the trick with any good accessory is that you have to have the right one.
For instance, when you first meet someone and introduce yourself, what do you think they’re looking at? Do you think they’re trying to remember the designer that makes your cute pumps? Or admiring that bag that you ate Ramen Noodles for 2 weeks to buy? No. They’re looking you straight in the eye and by default, what’s around them.
So accessorize to impress. And why wouldn’t you when at Eyeglass World you can get BOGO deals on designers such as Gucci®, Dior™ and Ray-Ban®. They’re going to look whether bad or good, so give them something amazing to look at.
Size Matters…Eyeglass Size, That is.
You wouldn’t buy a cute dress three sizes too big and still expect it to look fashionable. Nor would you buy shoes two sizes too small and shuffle with your feet have stuffed inside, expecting to gather compliments on your style. The same goes with eyeglasses. Your eyeglasses should fit your face. Fashion eyeglasses should look like they were made specifically for you.
Eyeglasses that are too small may make your face appear to be larger than it actually is. And eye wear that is too big will look like you’re wearing your father’s eyeglasses. You don’t want that.
Each pair of eyeglasses has measurements printed on the inside. The first number is the width of one lens, the second is the width of the nose bridge and the third is the length of the temple arm (from temple to behind the ear).
You can try on eye frames until you find the size that’s right for you. Or you can come into your local Eyeglass World store and have an associate help you find the size you may need. But getting the right fit for your eyeglasses is crucial.
Color Me Pretty
Certain colors work better with certain complexions. Though not a hard, fast rule, it definitely doesn’t hurt to be mindful of how the color matching of complexions and eye frames works.
Every person either has a warm toned complexion, which implies a yellow undertone – or a cool tone, which points to a blue or pink undertone. Warm toned folks usually have either blonde, flat black, light brown, or red hair. On the other hand, cool toned complexions typically sport strawberry blonde, flat brown, salt and pepper, grey, or blue-black hair.
Now here’s the important part: if you have a warm undertone, choose eyeglass frames that are gold, copper, khaki, coral, blonde tortoise, off white, peach, warm blue and/or bright red.
For cooler undertones, consider black, blue, plum, traditional Havana tortoiseshell, magenta, pink or mid-toned amber colored frames.
The Beauty of Eyeglasses
Eyeglasses should be an extension of your personality. They can be as bold and fierce or as calm and subtle as you want.
