You may have heard people say "I'm a Winter," or "I have cool undertones" and wondered what they meant. Knowing what colors 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? 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 lets delve into some recommendations for the best color glasses frames to bring out the color of your eyes - all based on 100% scientific fact of course….
There are essentially two directions you can go in when trying to bring out the color of your eyes, and this goes for makeup and clothing as well; 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.)
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. Coral and champagne shades are beautiful with blue eyes, and even a traditional tortoise brown is a viable option.
