Instead of jumping straight into the wide collections of glasses available in the market, first, ask yourself a few questions:
- Do I wear glasses for casual or for work?
- What face shape do I have?
- What is my prescription range?
- How do I like to wear?
As you can see, the occasion of wearing glasses is the first question you should ask yourself. Well, at least this is what we believe. We believe that everyone can pull off every kind of glasses, the matter is for what occasion one wears the glasses. Round glasses will definitely give you geek and artsy look, while a more rectangular one is more acceptable in professional line. Oversize glasses are normally for casual wear. With regard to the face shape, the normal and easy guide is to follow the contrast rule. Round face square glasses and vice versa. How about heart shape, or oval? You see, it’s kinda hard to tell what kind of face shape you have if you have neither square nor round. The good news is, every other shape suits you (don’t be so rigid and complicate your life) Next, prescription. This is easy. The higher your prescription, the smaller frame you should get. By doing so, the lens will be thinner and lighter too! So what’s the range of prescription? Ask your optician (or us, we are happy to assist :D) Lastly, put on your usual outfit before you go to the optical store. You can immediately visualize how that pair of glasses matches your daily outfit. Matte color can normally blend in easily while glossy finishing frames give you a fresher look.
