Generally, we are recognized by our faces, so the eye glasses frames we choose to wear are a part of who we are and how we wish to be perceived.

Whether you’re aiming to get that sophisticated look, fun-loving style, a serious ready-for-business look or something style-conscious, the right eyewear can determine just how you are perceived. And for those who choose to wear only one pair of glasses for everything they do, that tells something about their lifestyle, too! Prescription eyewear can help create an image that fits you. The key to helping people see the real you is to find the right eyeglasses frames to match your personality and lifestyle.

Begin by examining what the different aspects of your life are and try to think about what you really want your eyeglasses for. Consider what different kinds of activities that you take part in and what line of work you do. Most people could use more than one pair of eyeglasses to ensure having different looks to fit various occasions. With the same concept applying to shoes, most people have more than just one pair to fit various occasions.

Are you a hot shot business executive, the outdoorsy type, a soccer mom, a retiree or a student? Are you the creative type like a painter or writer? Like most people you probably have a lifestyle that is comprised of any combination of different activities, interests and personality traits so in order to slim down your options, consider what is most important to you in terms of styling, color, material and size.

When it comes to gaining trust and confidence amongst your business clients, it’s best to stick with traditional frame shapes and colors. Some timeless shapes include rectangles, almond and oval shaped lenses. Conservative colors like brown, silver, gold, black and grays always exude that corporate look. And for plastic frames, avoid bright colors or unusual shapes. The quintessential classic tortoise shell works amazingly well with business attire.

To boast your creative/style diva side, choose shapes like geometric designs in chunky and large plastic frames. These days some contemporary metal frames also look artsy. And more recently, stylish, large-sized eyeglasses come in unique hues such as blues, greens and purples. Lately there’s been a huge craze over modern/retro and vintage styling. Search for frame shapes from the ’70s and ’80s but with modern modifications. Oversized cat-eyes, aviators, and looks from the ’60s are all manufactured today with slight modifications.

Just because you’re retired doesn’t mean you have to wear old-fashioned frumpy frames. Put together a young and modern look by selecting shapes that highlight your best features like upswept rectangle shaped lenses for him and soft cat-eyes for her. Even certain colors can help you appear younger; gunmetal, earthy browns and dark wine for men and lighter, shinier hues for women are the best options.

Students aren’t fraught with the constraints of a conservative office environment. They have much more freedom in terms of eyewear styling like choosing bold colors and shapes. Unusual shapes, bright colors, larger sizes and interesting details such as color finishes are all available in a variety of prices and brand names.

Never be afraid to express yourself; we all like convenience but the truth is, between the many aspects of your life and personality, you need more than one pair of eyeglasses frames to complement your dynamic lifestyle. A new pair of eyeglasses are a fantastic way to update your look without dropping lots of cash on a whole new wardrobe.
