Glasses are likely to become a part of our everyday style as we get older. We may require them due to weakening eyesight, or we may wear them because… let’s be honest, they conceal many little imperfections, like wrinkles around the eyes for example. Believe it or not, the perfect glasses can actually make you look younger, but to maximize your youthful appearance, you will want to choose the right form.
Let your sunglasses give you a facelift
Certain sunglasses, especially the modern, branded types, can enhance the features of your face and make you appear younger. Our Cat Eye frames are a perfect example hereof. These frames sweep upwards and provide an uplifting appearance, which will help to reduce any sagging or sagging in the face.
At The Glasses Company, we source these frames from world-renowned designers such as Prada, Gucci, Ray-Ban, and Emporio Armani to mention a few, and they can be ordered with or without prescription lenses.
Wearing glasses with colour or detail elements around the top can help to showcase your improved appearance even more. Sidebars affixed to the frame’s upper portion will draw attention to the cheekbones and open the face. On the other hand, you should avoid any glasses with a hefty bottom or a down wipe, since this will have the opposite effect.
Make sure you choose the right frame for your face shape
It’s also important to choose the proper frame for your specific facial shape and size. Glasses that are too big or too small for your face can cause premature ageing. Examine your spectacles to ensure that they reach the sides of your face without stretching too much. The top of your glasses should cover your brow but not extend too far over it. It should also not interfere with your bottom cheekbones.
Also, if you want to cover up wrinkles with reading glasses or sunglasses, you should avoid rimless, frameless glasses because they provide no coverage. Choose those with a larger frame or an oval shape.
The colour of your frame is important too
It is often a good idea to choose a frame that complements your skin tone. If you have dark hair and fair skin, black may be a fine choice for you. Blondes look best in brown or gold tones and if you have a dark complexion, use a metallic or bright hue to enhance your appearance.
If you’re used to wearing black frames, you’ll be surprised to learn that the darker tint pulls your face down and makes you appear older. Stick to metal colours, deep brown, and burgundy if this is the case. A clear frame might also be a good option for a youthful appearance.
Remember to be stylish, even though you are wearing glasses
Women in their forties and fifties should not be afraid to be fashionable. When it comes to reading glasses, an edgy look will create a youthful appeal that is appropriate for people of all ages. Do not be afraid to experiment with new trends in order to achieve a fashionable look that complements your appearance.
