As you get older it is important to take care of your eyesight, and we have a wide range of excellent glasses available. The right pair of glasses will enhance your features and make you look younger, whilst ensuring that you never miss the small details. Whether you are wearing glasses for the first time or simply looking for a more complimentary style, we have put together our useful guide to the best styles of glasses for our mature customers.
The colour of your frames is key, with neutral colours and bright, bold colours always being a stylish option. We recommend avoiding cold blues and greys, and instead opting for bright, warm colours which will enhance your natural colouring. If in doubt, black frames will always add a stylish and sophisticated touch to any outfit. Although, if you do not feel ready to go for a bold colour, we recommend looking for metallic or light colours which reflect you eye and hair colour.
The ideal glasses will be the perfect size for your face, with the top sitting along the brow line or just below. A great way to reflect your youthful personality is with large, oversized frames which will show your confidence and help to hide dark circles and wrinkles. There is no need to stick to a single pair, so why not pick a bold, fun pair for the weekends and a more subtle style for during the week?
We recommend choosing frames which enhance the natural shape of your face, with round and oval shapes often a great choice for older people. It is advisable to avoid shapes with a downward sweep, such as those with an aviator style, as they can make your cheekbones look lower and will age you. Instead, choose upward sweeping designs which will visually life your face and give a more youthful appearance. In particular, we recommend the following styles:
- Cat-eye – For women, this statement style will highlight your cheekbones and add a feminine, youthful feel with their timeless style.
- Rimless – This frameless style is available in an endless array of lens shapes to perfectly compliment your face shape. The lightweight style is comfortable to wear, making this shape ideal for those who may not be used to wearing glasses.
- Horn-rimmed – This is a very flattering shape which works well with round, oval, square and heart shaped faces. We recommend a bold colour which will add a classic yet modern feel to your style.
