Choosing frames

Frames are important as they will be perceived as a part of you. 

Selecting the right frames is a delicate art that involves accentuating certain facial features while harmonizing others. When choosing your frames, there are four key factors to keep in mind:

Face shapes

Your face shape serves as the foundation for your frame selection. Understanding your unique face shape is the first step towards finding frames that enhance your natural features.

Contrast

In the world of eyewear, opposites often create the most striking impressions. Consider the shape of your frames in relation to your face shape. For instance, if your features tend to be rounder, opt for frames with more angular lines to create a captivating contrast.

Proportion

Maintaining proportion is crucial for a harmonious look. Your frames should be well-proportioned to the size of your face. It's worth noting that sunglasses often have larger designs for added coverage and protection, deviating from the proportions of regular eyeglasses.

Colour

The color of your frames can significantly impact your overall appearance. Many choose a frame color that complements their skin tone, eye colour, and hair colour. If you're looking to make a bold statement, contrasting colours can draw attention to your eyewear and amplify your style.
