IF IT’S ABOUT TIME YOU UPDATED YOUR SPECS FOR A FRESHER, MORE MODERN LOOK, HIS & HERS HAS A FEW TIPS ON FINDING THE PERFECT PAIR.
Whether you are in need of glasses for the first time in your life, or you are simply looking for a pair which suit you better, you’ve come to the right place. Choosing the right glasses to suit your style and face is a big decision, and it is one which you need to get right first time due to the high cost of a good pair of glasses. Here are His & Hers’ top tips for choosing the most flattering pair of glasses this year.
The first thing to think about when taking care of your glasses is your face shape and which type of frame will suit you. Here is a rundown of the most common face shapes alongside the frames which may suit you.
–Round Face: A round face is one of the most common of all, and the best frames for your face will be rectangular or square ones. They will work to balance out your face shape and will look glam and sophisticated.
-Oval Face: Oval faces suit strong and wide designs. They suit geometric frames and ones which come out wider than the face itself.
-Square Face: A round or oval frame will perfectly complement your face shape.
-Heart-Shaped Face: Round or square glasses can be ideal here in order to offset the width of the top of the face.
Match colour to skin tone:
Matching the colour of your frames to your skin tone is incredibly important because it can make a difference in the way your face looks overall. For example, if you have a warm skin tone with olive tones, you will want to choose glasses which are brown, golden or honey toned to complement your colouring. Anything like pastels or white frames will not suit you and they will contrast. If you have cool toned skin you will want to choose colours like black, grey, dark blue or mauve.
When choosing the glasses you will be wearing every day you need think about the lifestyle you lead. For example, if you have an office job you will probably be fine with regular frames. However, if you are an active person and you are often out on adventures, you will need to think about more sturdy frames. You can even get specific and choose glasses which enhance your gaming experience!
Glasses can be a fashion statement, not just something to help you see better! From Dita Von Teese’s vintage glamour look cat-eyes to John Lennon’s old NHS specs, the glasses can be part of the person. For men, these styles can give you plenty of options. But when you start to view glasses as an important accessory, it can bolster your look in many ways. You may feel naked without your glasses the next time you go out.
Once you have been through the other points on our list, you will need to think about what kind of glasses you will want to suit your personality. Many people have more than one pair of glasses in their wardrobe so you can have a normal pair for the week and a fun pair for the weekend. Think of your favourite colours, patterns and styles and if they work for you, flaunt them! Glasses are a great way to show off your personality so make sure you are able to do this with yours.
