About Face

THE ACT OF PIVOTING IN THE OPPOSITE
DIRECTION FROM THE ORIGINAL.

One simple rule your frame shape should be the
opposite of your face shape.

change, same goes for your style.

About Your Nose

The shape of your nose will affect how your reading glasses fit you. Plastic frames with formed bridges have less flexibility in terms of fit than metal frames with adjustable nose pads.

Usually, very narrow or wide noses are best fit with frames with adjustable nose pads but it’s also just a matter of personal preference.

Just A Few More Things


01

Frame Size

RULE: Keep readers in scale with your face size and stature. Frames should extend to the widest part of your face, even slightly beyond.

BREAK THE RULE: Make it small or oversized for an edgy trend look.

02

Frame Shape

RULE: Frame shape should contrast your face shape. Angles slim and curves soften.

BREAK THE RULE: It’s your look, own it.

03

Frame Color

RULE: Color can be used to accentuate your best features. Highlight your eyes, hair color, or enhance your complexion or just brighten up your everyday look.

BREAK THE RULE: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Truth is, you are getting older; you're looks have changed as has just about everything else about you. So just go with it and wear the readers that tell the story behind the style that you've developed over the years.

LET YOUR LOOK TELL YOUR STORY.
