How to choose the right glasses frame color

The color of your glasses frame can make a huge difference to your overall look. When choosing a pair of glasses frame, think about finding a style that either complements or contrasts against your hair color, eye color, and skin tone, depending on the effect you want to create.

Neutral glasses frame, such as black, brown, and tortoiseshell have a versatile quality, while colored glasses frame is great if you want to make a bit more of a statement. Read through our guide to choosing a glasses frame color for expert advice on finding a pair that makes your favorite features stand out.

Matching glasses frame color to eye color

When deciding what glasses frame color works best with your eye color, ask yourself whether you want to make a statement or opt for something versatile. For a subdued and understated look, choose glasses frame in a color that matches with the neutral tones in your eyes, such as brown, beige, or black.

If you want to channel a fun, statement-making look, choose a color that’s contrasting but complementary to your eye color. 

Gray Eyes

Choose a colorful glasses frame to bring a bright finish to your look. Because grey is already a neutral tone, almost any bright color will work with grey eyes.

Brown/Amber Eyes

Any color will look great with brown or amber eyes, from classic black to brighter tones. If you want to stand out, choose a bold color that contrasts against brown and amber, like a bright green or a cool blue.

Blue Eyes

For a bold look, orange (the complementary color to blue) will make your eyes pop. Natural tones, such as tortoiseshell and brown glasses frame will also look good with blue eyes. 

Green Eyes

Red is a complementary color to green and will bring a vibrant contrast if you want to channel a statement-making look. Gold or purple glasses frame will also have a similar, striking effect.

For something a little bit more understated, consider brown or other earthy tones. These subdued glasses frame colors always look good with green eyes.

Hazel Eyes

Hazel eyes often seem to switch from brown to green and so choosing green or brown glasses frame will provide both contrast as well as coordination. Amber glasses frame is also a flattering choice.

Matching glasses frame color to hair color

Hair plays by similar rules as your eyes: depending on the vibe you want to go for, your glasses frame can bring a subtle finish or striking statement to your overall look. There are a few different things to think about when choosing glasses frame based on your hair color. 

Black Hair

Darker glasses frame like black or tortoiseshell looks especially sleek with black hair, as they help to create a sophisticated, coordinated effect. On the other hand, brighter colors will bring a sharp contrast, which is great if you’re after a statement-making finish.

White/Gray Hair

White or gray hair provides the ultimate neutral pallet, making it a great hair color for anyone who likes to experiment with different looks. Neutral glasses frame will look effortlessly stylish, while bright colors will add a pop of excitement to your outfit.

Red Hair

Red hair looks especially vibrant with bold glasses frame. You can experiment with rich, jewel-toned colors, or, for a more conventional look, go with darker glasses frame.

Brown Hair with red undertones

If you have brown hair with red undertones—also called auburn hair—you’re the perfect match with tortoiseshell glasses frame and other colors that have warm, earthy tones, such as amber or dark green.

Brown hair with blonde/ash undertones

If your brown hair has pale undertones, dark glasses frame—especially black ones—will complement the balance of deep and light colors in your overall look.

You can also get playful by coordinating with the pale shades in your hair and experimenting with light-toned glasses frame, such as clear glasses frame or pastel colors.

Blonde Hair

If you have dark tones in your blonde hair and want to get a neutral look, choose glasses frame in warm colors, such as tortoiseshell, beige, or dark brown.

Those with ashy or platinum blonde hair look especially striking with pastels and other bright colors, which create a fun contrast against light hair.

Matching glasses frame color to skin tone

Depending on whether you have a particularly warm or cool skin tone, specific colors of glasses frame may be more likely to complement your overall look.

Cool skin tone

Noted for having a pink undertone, cool skin types look best with similarly cool-toned glasses frame like blue undertones, silver, gray, green, and clear. All-black glasses frame may be too harsh but look great when balanced out with a subtle pattern or accent color. 

Neutral skin tone

Neutral skin types — with a mix of pink and golden undertones — can wear just about anything. Go bold with stark black, keep it neutral with a tortoise pattern, or play with any number of fun shades.

Warm Skin Tone

Accented with a golden undertone, warm skin types look best with similarly warm glasses frame — tortoise, brown, red, orange, gold, and yellow. They also look great with the boldness of black.

The Comprehensive Color Guide for Glasses Frame

If you have ever purchased eyewear in a store before, you are familiar with the hours of fittings, trying on glasses frame after glasses frame to find a pair that looks good on your face. It may feel like you have tried on every pair in the store before you find one suitable for you. What if you could narrow down your choices? What if you could choose your glasses frame entirely online?

Where to Start

Though it may seem to be a simple strategy, knowing your face shape and coloring are most important to find a pair of glasses frame that suits you. Face shape can help you determine what style of glasses frame will most flatter your features, while your skin, hair, and eye color can help determine which glasses frame color is best for you.

After finding a glasses frame shape you like, it can take time to select the best glasses frame color for you and your skin tone. Avoid the temptation to choose a glasses frame color that simply goes with everything. Instead, take your time and select a color flattering to you and your natural color palette.

“But exactly how do I choose glasses frame colors?” you may wonder. “What do I need to look for, and what are the best eyeglass colors for me?”

To help guide you through the glasses frame selection process, we have compiled a comprehensive guide to picking the right color for your glasses frame. Here are the factors you should consider when selecting eyeglass colors.

Purpose and Personality

Finally, your glasses frame should reflect your personality and taste. They reflect your style as much as your shoes or shirt and should match the image you want to express to your co-workers and friends daily. Here are a few things to consider about the color and pattern of your glasses frame and how they will fit with your daily life:

Business and Professional

Conservatively shaped and colored glasses frame are typically favorable in a business setting, instilling a sense of confidence and professionalism in your interactions with clients and colleagues. Classic shapes and traditional colors and patterns are ideal when trying to maintain a professional appearance.

Conservative tones for men include silver, gray, brown and black, while brown, gold, silver and black are good choices for women in a professional setting. Tortoiseshell and subtle stripes are both excellent patterns to complement anyone’s professional look.

Fashionable and Creative

Modern shapes, flourishing cutouts, and colorful glasses frame are exciting ways to show off your creative side and add a finishing flair to your outfit. Choose a pair in a shape and color flattering to your features and expressive of your unique sense of style. Don’t be afraid to go bold! Try daring modern shapes or vintage looks – whatever fits you.

Glasses frame in unusual colors like teal blues, sea greens, and bright purples or popping colors like bright red and orange are excellent choices, as are glasses frame with floral or animal patterns. If you are working in a creative business or a semi-professional setting, try looking for glasses frame in traditional base colors with pops of accent colors or patterns.

Students and Academics 

College is a time to expand your education, your career, and your social circles as well as your sense of self. While you are discovering your interests and future career goals, your undergraduate career is the perfect time to experiment with your style and find what suits you and your preferences.

Are you more interested in a vintage look or a modern feel, a more conservative professional appearance or a daringly creative pop of color?

Consider the colors and clothing styles you tend to prefer, as well as your lifestyle, and find a color suitable for your tastes and habits as well as your skin tone.

Do not be afraid to experiment with patterns, either! Floral, animal print and striped patterns can lend a personality to otherwise sober glasses frame. Experiment with your style and have fun with it!

The same can be said for the discerning graduate student expanding into the world of academia. Focus on your style while adding a touch of professionalism to your look. Look for glasses frame that fits the tone of your field while still letting some of your personality shine through.

For business or science students, look for a more sober, professional look that will instill a sense of confidence when you are dealing with your peers. For students of the arts, choose a more colorful palette – serious enough for when you present your work and pursue your career, yet playful enough to express your creative side.

Above all else, the most important thing to remember when choosing eyeglass colors is your personal preference. These guidelines can help you make a choice that complements your physical traits and career choices, but use them only as guidelines, not as concrete rules.
