Choose the Right Eyewear for your Wardrobe!
Choosing eyewear that fits with your Wardrobe can be tough, and with constantly changing fashion it can be hard to keep up. This guide will give you some help!
Assess Your Clothes
The first thing you'll want to do is assess your clothes. Do you have mostly neautrals? Do you have mostly bold and bright colours? Or do you lean towards black and grey?
The glasses you choose could match with your clothing - if they're bold and bright you could pick the most common colour you wear and match it, or a contrasting colour. The same goes for wearing black and dark colours.
If you have a neutral wardrobe, you could go for a bright or bold frame, or go for a rimless and subdued frame to match. You could also go for a more subtle frame if your wardrobe is brighter, as this can tone everything down, and draw attention to your clothes rather than your face.
You can also assess the style of your clothes. Are they modern, or vintage? You should consider this as well. Its also beneficial to think about jewellery. If you mostly wear silver jewellery, make sure that a metal frame is silver too!
2. Skin Tone
Your skin tone can play a role in what colour frame you should get. Considering if it is warm or cool, and light or dark, can change the colours that will suit you and balance out your face. The best tones for a cool skin tone are on the cool end of the colour spectrum - like emeralds, deep purples, lavender, pink, ice blue and bright blues. For a light skin tone, you could go for a darker colour, so the frame stands out, or have a lighter frame so it blends in! It depends on the type of look you're after.
If you have a warm skin tone, you'll want to stick with warmer colours like red, yellow, mustard, green, and brown. Again, you could use a darker colour to accentuate the warmth of the face, or go for a lighter colour to lift the colour.
3. Personal Style
Your personal style is arguably the most important factor in choosing glasses to fit your wardrobe. Have a look around, and find inspiration for eyewear that matches your personal style, and that you personally really like. This is the easiest way to match your wardrobe, and to feel your best!
4. How many pairs, and how often are they replaced?
You may want to consider how many pairs of glasses you want. This can mean if you want 3 pairs, you could have a variety of different looks and styles, to match different parts of your wardrobe. However, if you only want one pair, you should have a versatile pair - some that you can wear with every part of your wardrobe, as well as being comfortable.
If you replace your glasses every 6 months, you could be more adventurous with the styles you want. You could choose ones that may not be in style the next year, but are in at the moment! But, if you're changing your eyewear every 3 years, you may need to go for something more classic, that you know you won't go off anytime soon.
5. The Occasion
The occasion that you'll be wearing your glasses for is important too. If you're going to be wearing them all the time, you might want something more casual and less wild. If they're just for reading, or just for driving, you could go for something more trendy or unusual, as you won't be wearing them as often, so they don't need to match everything!
