Pale Complexions

Lightweight metal frames, or those with a hint of colour such as rose or amber, can look good. Clear crystal frames are too colourless for most pale complexions, but tortoiseshell can often work well.

Dark Complexions

People with olive, Mediterranean, golden or
Asian skin and rich black
hair often look best in
silver, gold or clear

Black frames can be too
heavy even if they are
quite trendy.

Black Skin

All metallic frames suit
black skins.

Amber usually works well too.  Other colours are worth trying but black may be too heavy.

Frame Selection

Whatever you choose, couple the frames with plastic or glass lenses, and an anti-reflective coating, and you will have a pair of glasses that are functional as they are good looking.
