COLOR CORRECT EYEGLASSES

 

            When choosing a color for eyeglass frames, the Vision Council recommends considering skin, hair, and eye hues. Skin, the primary element in determining frame color, falls into either of two color bases—blue (cool) or yellow (warm). While cool complexions have blue or pink undertones, warm complexions are of the peaches-and-cream variety or have a yellow cast. Olive skin is considered cool. Eye colors, the second most important element in determining frame color, varies from green and blue to brown and nearly black. Finally, hair color can also be classified as either cool (strawberry blonde, platinum, black, white, auburn, salt-and-pepper, and ash brown) or warm (golden blonde, brownish black, brown-gold, and red). When appropriate, neon yellow frames are particularly hot. Eyeglass frame colors that are best for warm coloring are camel, khaki, gold, copper, orange, coral, off-white, red, warm blue, and blond tortoise.
