Are you looking for a new pair of eyeglasses but don’t want another run-of-the-mill pair? Then why not get a pair of colorful glasses?
Since colorful glasses are trending right now, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the large selection and choose the perfect new set of frames for you.
But what if you’re worried that a colorful pair of frames will clash with everything in your closet and make your outfit look like a disorderly mess?
If you’re excited to get a pair of bright new glasses but aren’t sure how to style them, this article is for you. Keep reading to learn our top tips so you can style your new colorful frames in a way that not only complements your face but your closet as well.
Complement Your Skin Tone
Whether you’re getting designer eyeglasses or custom sunglasses, one of the first steps in how to choose a glasses color is to make sure it complements your skin tone.
While it’s easy to identify your skin tone, you also need to identify your skin undertone.
Skin tone is the color of your skin on the surface. On the other hand, skin undertone is the subtle color underneath the surface of your skin. Your skin undertone can be warm, neutral, or cool.
One easy way to identify your undertone is to look at the veins on your wrists. If they have a green tone, your skin tone is warm.
If they’re blue-toned, then your skin tone is cool. And if they’re in between, you have a neutral undertone.
If you’re not sure of what looks good with your skin tone and undertone, then get frames in a universally flattering color, like these blue Caribbean-style glasses from Face A Face.
Plus, the rose gold on these glasses is a great match for both warm and cool skin tones.
Pick a Color That Goes With Your Wardrobe
It wouldn’t make any sense to buy a bunch of new outfits to match your new designer sunglasses. Instead, you want to make sure your designer glasses fit with what you already have.
If you wear a lot of black, white, or neutral colors, it’s a bit easier to pick a color that matches your wardrobe.
All you need to do is make sure that if you mostly wear warm tones like beige, then you should pick a warm tone for your glasses (and vice versa for cool tones).
One easy way to learn how to wear colorful glasses frames is to wear them with black and white. One color that makes a great statement against a neutral outfit is neon.
While you may think that wearing neon colors is difficult, these shades can look very sophisticated when paired with a black or white outfit.
If you love wearing color, don’t think you can’t wear colorful eyeglasses. You definitely can as long as your frames are a color that complements the rest of your outfit.
Don’t Overdo It
When styling glasses, a huge misconception is that you have to match all your outfit colors exactly. Not only can this be very difficult to pull off, but it doesn’t look unique.
Instead, the best glasses frame color is one that you can match with other colors. For example, if you have a pair of bright red frames, don’t worry too much about finding the exact same shade of red for other parts of your outfit.
Instead, look at what other colors you have in your wardrobe that would look good with that shade of red.
If you’re worried about choosing a color that you won’t be able to match well, then pick a pair of glasses that are colorful but more muted.
For example, these burgundy turquoise glasses from Bellinger have just enough of a pop of color to catch your eye, but the color isn’t overwhelming.
This type of pair is a great choice if you’re not used to wearing color but would like to incorporate a bit of it into your wardrobe.
Start Your Outfit With Your Glasses
Whether you’re shopping for sunglasses for men or sunglasses for women, you want to start with the glasses first if you have colorful glasses frames.
While this step wouldn’t matter much for a neutral set of glasses, you want to make sure that you pick your outfit around a pair of colorful glasses for the best results.
If you start with your clothes first, you’ll find yourself frustrated because you can’t seem to find anything to match your glasses.
For example, if you pick a delightful pair of fluorescent pink glasses like this pair from Theo Eyewear, start your outfit plan with them. Then go on to pick a shirt, pants, or a dress to wear with them.
Finally, you want to pick accessories, shoes, and what bag or purse you’ll be wearing with them.
To make the most use out of your colorful frames, you also want to make sure you consider the occasion. Are you going to a special occasion like a party or an art opening where your colorful frames would be a great choice? Or are you going to a formal business meeting?
Starting your outfit plan with your glasses would help you make sure your outfit is right for the occasion from the start.
Add a Pop to Your Outfit With Colorful Glasses
Whether you already have a colorful wardrobe or only wear neutrals, colorful glasses are sure to give your outfit a one-of-a-kind look.
