Choosing glasses is one of the most important style decisions you can make. Glasses can be the first thing people notice about you, and can make the biggest impact of anything you wear. You shouldn’t make such an important purchase online. Instead, visiting a customized eyewear shop is the best way to make sure you know what you’re getting and love the glasses you wear.
Art & Eyes is the place to go in New Orleans, LA for a high-end, customized eyewear shopping experience. Before you visit, here are some tips for choosing the perfect glasses that will be best suited to you and your style.
First things first: Consider your face shape
If you’ve ever ordered a pair of glasses that seemed adorable online and wound up looking hideous when you tried them on, the problem may be that you’re trying the wrong style of glasses for your face shape. Different kinds of frames look better on certain face shapes. This is a great reason to visit a customized eyewear shop: to figure out which style of frames suits your face best.
If you have an oval face, consider looking for walnut-shaped frames that are as wide or wider than the broadest part of your face. Heart-shaped faces tend to look best with frames that are wider at the bottom to balance the heart shape, or with light-colored or rimless frames that keep things light and airy.
Square faces, meaning those with strong jaws and broad foreheads, look good with rounded narrow frame styles, while round faces are more suited to angular, narrow frames. If you have a round face, try frames with a clear bridge and rectangular frames. If you have a triangular-shaped face (base-down), try frames that boast a lot or color and detailing on the brow in order to balance your narrow forehead and wider cheeks and chin. Cat-eye frames can work well for triangular faces.
Once you have your face shape down, and know which frames work best with your features, there is still more to consider. Your skin tone, eye color and hair also affect how glasses look on your face. Even more than with clothing, it’s important to wear glasses that go well with your coloring. Choose frames in colors that you know look good when you wear them.
Choose frames that fit your lifestyle
Studies have shown that glasses are associated with intelligence. People who wear glasses are seen as smarter, more competent and trustworthy. They’re a great accessory for job interviews or other times when you want to look professional and put together. But they can also show the fun side of your personality, with eye-catching colors and whimsical designs. If you’re only going to buy one pair of frames at a time from your local customized eyewear shop in New Orleans, LA, be sure you pick glasses that reflect who you are and what you do.
