I need eyeglasses, but keep thinking about the phrase, "Boys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses." What type glasses would be best - should it match the color of my hair?
Dear Eyeglasses dilemma,
Don't worry, the phrase is not true and old-fashioned. Nowadays, eyeglasses are considered fashionable, sexy, can enhance your look and flatter your face.
There are three basic elements to consider when choosing eyeglass frames: color, size, and shape.
1) Frame Color: the frames do not need to match the color of your hair, but should complement the color of your hair, eyes and skin tone.
2) Frame Size: frames should be to scale with your face, for example - smaller frames for a smaller face.
3) Frame Shape: The shape of the face is taken into account when selecting the frame shape. For example, a round face would look best with square frames.
Eyeglass frames come in a wide variety of styles, shapes, colors, and prices. Try on different styles of eyeglasses to see which best fits your face. The optician can help guide you toward the type of look you are trying to achieve. For example, if you prefer eyeglasses to be minimally noticed, then choose thin wire rims or rimless frames. For a bolder look, try plastic frames. Have fun.
