The Right Frame


There is a fantastic choice of frame styles and colours to choose from.  But how do you make sure you pick the right ones for your complexion?


We are here to help you of course, but you may want to consider the following few tips to help you look and feel great:


Pale Complexions


Lightweight metal frames, or those with a hint of colour such as rose or amber, can look good. Clear crystal frames are too colourless for most pale complexions, but tortoiseshell can often work well.


Dark Complexions


People with olive, Mediterranean, golden or Asian skin and rich black hair often look best in silver, gold or clear frames.  Black frames can be too heavy even if they are quite trendy.


Black Skin


All metallic frames suit black skins.  Amber usually works well too.  Other colours are worth trying but black may be too heavy.


Whatever you choose, couple the frames with plastic or glass lenses, and an anti-reflective coating, and you will have a pair of glasses that are functional as they are good looking.
