What Color Eyeglass Frame is Best for You?

Lindberg 9800 strip frame

At Adair Eyewear, we’re all about expressing yourself with your eyeglasses.  For some, green frames made of wood by FEB31st is the exact statement they’re looking to make.  For others, a classic frame by Prada is the avenue they’d like to take.

Whether you want someone to see you from a mile away, or you’d like to blend in, there is a science to choosing the color of your frame.

The Vision Council, an organization which represents manufacturers and suppliers of the optical industry, put together three basic tenets of color analysis:

  • Everyone has cool or warm coloring.  If your coloring is cool, it tends to have blue or pink undertones.  If it’s warm, it’s typically yellow-based coloring which could also include a peach or cream complexion.
  • Just about everyone looks better in their own color base.
  • Your eyeglasses should complement your personal coloring.

Here are some frame suggestions if you have cool coloring:

  • Black, silver, dark tortoise, rose-brown, blue-gray, plum, magenta, pink, jade, and blue

Here are some frame suggestions if you have warm coloring:

  • Blonde tortoise, camel, khaki, gold, copper, peach, orange, off-white, and red

If you have any questions about what might look good on you, let us know.  We’re happy to help!

Designer Spotlight: Tom Ford

Tom Ford Eyewear

Tom Ford Eyewear

Tom Ford is one of the hottest names in fashion.  And there are two things about him that might surprise you:  he was born in Austin, Texas, and he’s been working in the fashion industry for 25 years.

In April 2005, he launched the Tom Ford Brand, and in that same year, partnered with the Marcolin Group to produce and distribute frames and sunglasses.  When you look at his frames for men and women, you’ll see a very strong aesthetic.  These frames are not for the wimpy or the wallflower.

But what do you expect from a man who began studying art history then switched to architecture?  We carry the Tom Ford line so feel free to stop by and take a look.
