HELP! Which frames do I choose?

Choosing your frames online can be a daunting task; with the main question being "will they suit me?". At Direct Specs we're aware of this issue, which is why we've put together this handy guide to choosing the right frames for your look.

Remember, there are no set-in-stone rules as to which glasses suit which faces, it's all down to personal preference! However, this can help you get a feel for what will really make your shiny, new specs stand out.

 

THE BEST FRAME SHAPE FOR YOUR FACE

 

FRAME COLOURS AND YOUR HAIR/EYE COLOUR

AUBURN OR RED HAIR

For auburn/red hair, we recommend going for frames with colours ranging from browns, golds, bronzes and tortoise-shell types as these shades compliment your hair colour well. The general rule is any colour will work, but never have yellow frames with hair that has reddish tones, as this will have a dulling effect on your luscious fiery locks!

 

BLACK HAIR

Black hair means you can pretty much wear any colour frames... and your glasses will look great! However, we recommend going for metallic or bright colours if you want your frames to stand out, or darker colours if you'd prefer something more blended in.

 

BLONDE HAIR

Blonde hair and pastel glasses go hand-in-hand. Pink, lilac and blue pastel frames work amazingly with a golden hair colour. We recommend staying away from heavier frames with shades such as navy blues and dark greens. Thinner black frames seem to work really well too!

 

BROWN HAIR

For darker brown hair, dark reds such as maroon and burgundy work really well with your hair colour! Perhaps if you have lighter hair you might want to opt for frames with a lighter colour too; perhaps bronzes or metallic silvers.

 

SILVER/GREY HAIR

Silvery hair tones mean brighter frames tend to compliment your hair colour the most. Reds, browns and tortoise-shell colours in either plastic or metallic frames are fantastic choices for this hair colour. We would avoid frames that are too heavy and dark, though!
