Glasses frames are available in countless colors, from warm Havana hues to transparent tones, all the way to metallic shades. But which glasses suit your eye color? A model that might make one person shine could make someone else’s eyes look small and their skin seem pale. Each face is unique, and whether a pair of glasses suits you depends mainly on whether the color matches your eye color. Whether your eyes are green, blue, or brown, our guide will help you find the glasses best suited to your eye color.
Which glasses go with green eyes?
If you’re blessed with green eyes then your color is a real rarity. Enigmatic green eyes are all the more dazzling in harmony with light-green shades of glasses, but you can also go for contrasting red or orange hues.
Glasses colors for green eyes:
- Red, purple or pink
- Shades of orange
- Light shades of green
- Brown, Havana
You should avoid wearing these glasses colors with green eyes:
- Cool shades of blue. These will dim your green glow
Which glasses go with brown eyes?
With your brown eyes, you can pretty much take your pick of glasses models! Matching brown tones will open up your face, or you could go for powerful contrasts that will draw attention to your eye area.
Glasses colors for brown eyes:
- Warm colors: Different shades of brown
- Cool colors: Blue or green
- Red, violet
- Shades of gold
You should avoid wearing these glasses colors with brown eyes:
- Soft pastel colors or nude tones (quickly get boring)
- Shades of brown with a splash of red or yellow (risk looking tired)
Exception: very dark, almost black eyes
If your eyes are a very dark brown or almost black, you can take your pick from absolutely any color:
- Dark colors (for a serious, sober effect)
- Light colors (make the face gentler and more open)
Which glasses go with blue eyes?
Your blue eyes are a real rarity, as only around one in ten people have this eye color. Blue eyes are especially captivating and radiant, so your choice of glasses is a great chance to make the most of this potential. Tip: the darker the blue, the stronger the glasses color.
Glasses colors for blue eyes:
- Red, orange (make a statement)
- Pastel colors and discreet shades like apricot, rosé and beige
- Light shades of brown
- Shades of copper and gold (make your eyes glow)
You should avoid wearing these glasses colors with blue eyes:
- Shades of blue and green (steal your glow)
Which glasses go with gray and bluish-gray eyes?
Gray eyes bring an enchanting, enigmatic depth to your eye area and are also pretty rare. For a wide, open eye area, choose a glasses model with a matching color. If you want to add a touch more vibrancy and intensity to your face, you can also go for powerful contrasts.
Glasses models for gray and bluish-gray eyes:
- Dark colors
- Orange, red, pink, purple (for harder-hitting contrasts)
Of course it is not just your eye color that determines which pair of glasses suits you best. Your face is unique, and its shape, your skin tone, your hair color, and lots more features have to be factored in as well. For example, you should also take the shape of your eyebrows into consideration (find out which glasses match your eyebrows here) as well as the shape of your face when choosing your glasses.
