Trying to find the perfect pair of glasses should feel fun, not frustrating. Your face shape, hair colour, eye colour, and personal style all play a part in determining the right frames for you. We’re here to lay out the guidelines, but ultimately rules were made to be broken: round glasses with a round face could be the perfect signature look, and red hair and red glasses might be just your thing.
This guide will help you understand how to weigh all of those factors as you make your choice. We’ll also encourage you to think about situation—are you looking for glasses to wear in a work setting, or for going out? Different frames may suit different occasions, or you can find a pair that looks good anywhere.
The better your frames fit, the better they flatter your face. Consider searching for your glasses as you would for a pair of shoes – first, you need to know your size.
Frame size incorporates three key figures, all of which are measured in millimeters.
Lens width: Between 31-60 mm
Bridge width: Between 12-31 mm
Glasses arm length: Between 115-155 mm
It’s easiest to find a pair of glasses that fit you already — whether they’re your current prescription pair, a set of sunglasses, or even your friend’s glasses (if you don’t yet have your own), and get the sizing from there. Usually, the frame manufacturer prints the size numbers on the inside of the arm of the glasses. Sometimes they’ll print them on the bridge. See the above image for reference.
If you have dark tones in your blonde hair, look for warm colors. Tortoise shell would also be a good choice for you. Ashy or platinum blondes—consider pastels and other bright colors for fascinating contrast with your light hair and skin.
Noted for having a pink undertone, Cool skin types looks best with similarly cool-toned frames like blue, silver, gray, green, and clear. Black frames tend to be too harsh, while gold hues can clash with the naturally rosy complexion.
Neutral skin types — with a mix of pink and golden undertones — can wear just about anything. Go bold with stark black, keep it neutral with a tortoise pattern, or play with any number of fun shades.
Accented with a golden undertone, warm skin types look best with similarly warm frames — tortoise, brown, red, orange, gold, and yellow. They also look great with the boldness of black, but will want to avoid greenish hues that may give them a sallow cast.
