Optic Topic by Steven A. Queenan at Regional Eye Optical – Week of March 3, 2019

Because your eyeglasses are among the first things people notice about you, they should reflect your personality and lifestyle. For serious business wear, classic shapes such as ovals, rectangles, and almonds in traditional gold, silver, brown, gray, and black enhance your professional image and instill confidence.

Gunmetal is also recommended for men as is goes well with business suits. Brown, golden tones, silver, burgundy, black and espresso are good selections for women.

Other options include titanium and stainless steel, along with rimless and three-piece mountings. In more casual business settings where you want to highlight your creative talents, modern shapes in geometric designs of thicker and larger plastic frames are suggested. Multi-colored laminates in bolder colors project a modern look. Eyeglass frames for creative and fashion-minded people may also include retro or vintage looks based on frame styles from the ’70s and ’80s, such as oversized cat-eye and aviator shapes.

The shape of your face will help you determine which frames enhance your look. You will want to select eyeglasses that contrast from your facial contours and bring symmetry and balance to your prominent features.
