3 Tips for picking the right frames

Frames that fit your face shape

The first consideration for choosing the right frames is the shape of your face. Faces on average can be oval, round, square, or diamond-shaped. Round faces do well with proportional frames or those frames with sharp angles that can add some definition. In opposition, a square face that features a wide jawline and forehead is better suited for eyeglass frames that have more length than height. 

An oval face that features a higher forehead and cheek structure can be flattered with almost any style eyeglass frame from rectangular, to square, to trapezoid. Finally, a diamond-shaped face is rare, but will have the full cheeks with a narrow jawline and forehead. Consider eyeglass frames that are funky and modern, even the latest cat-eye or horn-rim eyeglass frames would suit these individuals.

Frames that fit your personality

After choosing frames that fit your face shape, you can go one step further by considering your unique personality. If you spend a lot of hours in the office or dealing with clients, you may want to choose a basic frame color. Black, brown, or any metal frame would do well in the office. For those that enjoy a number of different outdoor activities, dining, and nightlife, or entertaining friends at home, have a little more fun with your frame choices. Retro or vintage frame styles with a modern twist are a great choice.

And finally, for those that are super creative or fun-loving, multi-colored laminates or unusual frame shapes in fresh colors are a great choice.

Frames that are age-appropriate

Maybe you are a senior, a teenager, or a progressive Millennial. At Alpine Vision in Colorado Springs, we can help you feel comfortable with your eyeglass frame choice. After all, you may be wearing your eyeglasses for the next two years before another visit your optometrist again. Seniors can enjoy an updated look with eyeglass frames that features soft rectangles for men or vintage styles for women.

Younger people are more daring, so show your enthusiasm in the eyeglass frames that you choose. Frames with unique detail, funky colors, or unusual shapes are great for students that wear glasses.
