Picking the Right Glasses for Your Style and Lifestyle
When you start to look for a new pair of eyeglasses, you’ll read and hear a lot about how you need to make sure you pick the right pair for your face shape. While that is important, you also want to put some more thought into your choice. Obviously, just picking a pair that fit right isn’t going to necessarily give you a pair you love to wear.
There are a few other things that you want to keep in mind when it comes to picking the right frames for your face. You want to think about your style, your hair, and even your life in general. Here are a few tips.
When Looking Fashionable Is Important
For some people wearing glasses is all about eyesight, but glasses have their place in the world of fashion as well. So much so that some people buy plain lenses in frames just to get that cool Buddy Holly look or to look like a sexy librarian.
Whether you need them to see or not, spend some time perusing the eyewear at your eye doctor’s office, or online. It is important to be able to try your frames on to make sure that they fit your face, from the arms fitting behind your ears to them being wide enough (or not too wide) for your head.
Something That Goes With Your Wardrobe
If you have a tendency to wear one color or only a few specific colors of clothing, or you’re buying frames simply for fashion’s sake, you definitely want to consider your style and your wardrobe when it comes to picking the right pair. You will want ones that look good on you, but you may also want them in specific colors.
Maybe you don’t even want them to be noticed at all. If specs aren’t your thing but glasses are a must, you can try rimless or half-rim glasses. But if you want to make a statement then you may want to go with bold plastic frames.
What Do You Do For A Living?
It may also be important to consider what you do for a living when it comes to eyeglass choice. Some places may prefer that you don’t wear bold statement glasses, while others may require safety glasses. If you work outside a lot or drive a lot, you may want transition lenses instead of switching back and forth to regular sunglasses.
If you work in an environment where your glasses may get bumped and jostled, or you have kids, you may want to get wire frames flex without bending permanently or breaking. Talk to your eye care professional about all of these things and they can help you find the perfect pair of frames for your life and your lifestyle.
