Boston Eyewear Choices

Making eyewear choices in Boston requires some thought to look your best. Eyewear should repeat your best personal feature, contrasting with your face shape, size and coloring. For instance if you have a round face, with curved lines with the width and length of your face being the same proportion with no hard angles, you would be best fit into an angular narrow frame to lengthen the face and widen the eyes. Or even a diamond shaped face, one where you are narrow at the eye line and jaw line. You would also have broad cheekbones that may be high and dramatic. This is the rarest face shape and frames that best suit this shape are rimless or oval shapes. Those are just two examples.

For color tones, your skin, eyes and hair fall into either a cool tone or a warm tone. For example cool tones have blue or pink undertones and warm has peach or yellow. Olive skin is considered cool because it is a mixture of blue and yellow. Brown eyes can vary from light amber, a warm tone to medium brown-black, a cool tone. For skin tone, 60% of our population is considered cool toned.
Some examples of frame colors best suited for these tones are below:

Cool Tones: black, rose-brown, blue-gray, plum, magenta, pink, jade, blue and dark tortoise.
Warm Tones: camel, khaki, gold, copper, peach, orange, coral, off-white, fire red, warm blue and blond tortoise.

To figure out which frame fits and suits you best and will not only look good but will also be comfortable, you should work with a licensed optician because finding the right frame among displays of frames can be overwhelming. Opticians at D’Ambrosio Eye Care understand that and are here to assist you with determining the best frame style for your personal needs and style.
