Picking The Right Frames


How to Choose the Best Frames for You

A lot goes into picking out just the right glasses.  You have to consider what style of glasses you want as well as the price. You also have to choose the right lenses and material you want. Fortunately, at French Optical Fashion, our professional staff is ready to help you find the frames that will best suit your needs. Here is what you should know about choosing the best frames for your glasses. 

Picking the right frames

Choose a Frame That Fits Your Face Type

One thing you have to consider when choosing your frames is the shape of your face. For example, a square frame or a rectangular frame is a good choice if you happen to have a round face. This is because these frames balance out round facial features, causing your face to look longer and slimmer. 

If you have an oval face, a frame that’s a geometric shape, wider than your face’s broadest portion, and includes a strong bridge can work well. Glasses that are round or oval are suitable options for people with square faces. If you have a diamond-shaped face, we recommend frames that are wider than your cheekbones to accentuate your features. We also recommend blue light-blocking lenses, regardless of your face type. 

Pick A Frame with Colors that Suit the Tone of Your Skin

Your face’s shape is a vital factor when choosing a frame for your glasses. However, your skin tone is another relevant factor. If your skin has a golden, bronze, or yellow hue, that means your complexion is warm. Some colors that might work well for you are olive green, beige, gold, or shades of brown. 

Alternatively, if you have skin that has blue or pink hues, this is known as a cool complexion. This means that you should consider colors for your glasses, such as blue, gray, purple, or black. However, silver, mauve, and pink can all work for your frame color too. A handmade frame like Limburg comes in many colors. Our team will recommend stylish glasses that also help you see clearly.

Choose a Frame That Suits Your Personality

It is a good idea to pick a frame for your glasses that fits your personality. For example, you might have one pair of glasses when you go out to have fun and another pair that fits your look and needs better when working. You can also pick a single style of frame that expresses your personality. Eyeglasses frames are a vital way of representing yourself, so it is good to pick frames that suit you personally.
