How to Choose Eyeglasses by Your Eye Color

There are many factors that go into choosing the right eyeglass frames. You can look to your face shape, skin tone, hair color, and of course — personality. Like I've said before, there is no magic formula. But if you're looking for some help in choosing your frames, you've come to the right place. Much like there are eye palettes to enhance your eye color, you could try employing the same technique with your glasses, choosing either a complementary or coordinating color to make your lovely eyes stand out even more. It's a fun option, considering you can always keep the old standard black, tortoise, or wire frames as well. To see some suggestions, with help from LensCrafters, just keep reading.

  • Blue eyes: A contrasting brown tone will help your blue eyes pop. Or, for a super intensified look with an edge, opt for a matching tone, like cobalt, midnight, or steel blue.
  • Green eyes: For a pretty complementary shade, try something in the plum-toned family, and for something more vivid, go with a nice emerald-green.
  • Brown eyes: A lavender color will provide just the right amount of contrast to make brown eyes stand out, while a matching tortoise or coffee shade will help deepen your natural eye tone.
  • Hazel eyes: Why not try a greenish frame to emphasize the gold in hazel eyes? And to give depth to hazel peepers, go for a brownish tone.
