Jacqui’s top tips for choosing the right glasses for you …
Step 1: Be prepared to spend oodles of time trying on frames, just like getting the perfect pair of jeans, it’s a numbers thing.
Step 2: Know your face shape.
Step 3: Understand your Style Profile. As with clothing style, once you know the key elements the frames are easy to select. For example, if your dominant style is dramatic, this needs to be reflected in your frames, so they feel ‘you’.
Step 4: Colour. Work within a colour spectrum which means the colour will work with your clothing style – even if you stick to neutrals for simplicity.
Step 5: Consider skin tone, are you warm or cool? Match the frame to your skin tone for optimal alignment. Metals are a fail-safe option. Silver = Cool. Gold = Warm.
