One of the strongest current trends in eyeglass frames for women involves matching frame and lens colors to produce a striking look. Both blacked-out lenses and mirrored lenses add more than a touch of glamour. As for the frames themselves, oversized and angular frames in blues, blacks, and reds make the biggest fashion statements, and jeweled accents and temple cutouts add alluring details. A playful look can be achieved with oversized and exaggerated frames in modern butterfly, cat-eye, shield, and goggle styles. Thick plastics in bright colors are the preferred frame materials, while vivid prints bring a wilder look. Contrasting clear and colored frames also are a favorite mix. Combining shapes, styles, colors, and materials brings out the wearer’s personality.
Choosing a frame and lens that complements your facial features and skin tone can enhance your looks. It’s also important to consider your lifestyle and occupation. At DR. DONALD B. KNAPP, OPTOMETRIST, we carry hundreds of designer frames in many different styles, colors, and sizes. We can advise on the frame and lens color that would be most flattering and functional. If you’ve been wearing the same frames for several years, you’ll be amazed at the new temple designs.
P.S. White plastic and colored translucents are also favorite looks in women’s eyeglass frames.
