How to Choose Eyeglasses That Make You Look Younger

The older you become, the more likely you are to need eyeglasses and to wear them every day. When this happens, your eyeglasses become an important fashion accessory and the wrong frames can seriously date you and make you looked age.

For a more youthful look, your Calgary optometrist can help you consider the frame, style, and colour of your new eyeglasses.

How to Get an Instant Facelift With Your New Eyeglasses

When you choose frame styles that focus the attention upward and outward on the face, you can shed years off your appearance.

Here are some things to consider:

  • Cat eye frames visually lift the face to make you look younger.
  • Avoid aviator styles, or other frames with heavy bottoms or a downward sweet, as these will attract attention downwards.
  • Create a focal point by choosing frames that have an extra touch of colour, whether it’s the entire frame, or just on the outer corners.
  • Sidebars attached at or toward the top of the frames tend to accentuate your cheekbones and open up the face.

Choosing The Right Frames

When selecting your eyeglasses, you must try to choose from styles and weights that complement your face and features, while keeping you up-to-date with current styles and trends. Even classic styles can become outdated, so make sure to upgrade your frames regularly.

Size

The size of your frames is important. For a younger look, be sure to choose an eyewear size that complements your face size. Remember: wearing ultra-large frames when small frames are in, can make you look older, and vice-versa.  

Bonus Tip: Just like shoes, one pair of eyeglasses can’t be right for every occasion. It’s best to keep 2-3 frames on hand to suit different activities, outfits, or occasions.

Eyewear Frame Color

As you age, your skin colour and features begin to soften, and some colours you could wear when you were younger, start to look too loud on you. As a result, you must choose your frame colours very carefully to bring out your youth.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Frames that complement your skin, hair, or eye colour, tend to be the best choice.
  • If you have wrinkles, dark circles under your eyes, or baggy skin under the eyes, avoid rimless glasses. Try to go for thicker and larger ones instead.
  • By adding a touch of colour (bright red or blue) you can add some warmth and softness to your face. This works especially well when matched to the colour of your eyes or outfit.
  • Avoid heavy, dark, or dull colours that tend to pull your face downwards. If you’re a fan of black, go for gunmetal, deep brown, or burgundy instead.

Find The Perfect Pair of Eyeglasses

Your eyeglasses can have a huge impact on your appearance and self-esteem. Selecting the right frame shape and colour will ensure that you always appear fashionable and ageless.
