You may have heard people say “I’m a winter” or “I have cool undertones” and wondered what they meant. Knowing what color glasses frames suit you can be confusing. At FramesDirect.com, we have a do-what-feels-right philosophy when it comes to fashion. People with olive skin can’t wear yellow? People with red hair can’t wear red? Who says? Not us! We say, Wear what makes you feel great!

All that said, color theory is kind of like astrology—it may not be verifiable or applicable to everyone, but it’s fun to think about. So let’s delve into some recommendations for the best color glasses frames to bring out the color of your eyes—based on 100% scientific fact of course.

When using glasses frames to bring out the color of your eyes, there are two directions you can go in: you can choose a color in the same family or a complementary color (one that is opposite from your eye color on the color wheel.)


Best Glasses for Blue Eyes

To bring out your baby blues, a midnight blue (otherwise known as navy) or a truer cobalt blue can be appealing. Try these Tory Burch frames (below) and wait for the compliments to come rolling in. Glasses frames in coral and champagne shades complement blue eyes beautifully., Even a traditional tortoise brown is a viable option.

Best Glasses for Brown Eyes

Brown is the most common eye color on the planet, so it’s lucky that there are so many colors of glasses frames that look nice with warm brown eyes. Basic black and brown frames look great (hooray!)! But if you’re trying to be more creative, salmon, bronze, gold, lavender, and olive—like this super cool pair from Modo (below)—are fab.
