The Color of Women's Sunglasses
If anybody knows color, itís women. They are experts in wearing all black; the black work suit, the black dress, the black purse. They are also masters of wearing white, whether itís for a wedding gown, a summer party dress, or in a golf outfit. Then there are all the colors in between that they know how to mix and match. The pastel greens and pinks of spring, the oranges, yellows and browns of fall, and the reds and blues of summeróevery color under the sun becomes their palette when they are preparing an outfit to wear.
Why is it any different when it comes to sunglasses? After all, women know how to look good in color, and sunglasses come in all shades of good looking colors. If we put two and two together, women should be having a ball when it comes to mixing and matching sunglasses to match their moods, their outfits, or the time of day. By looking at pictures in fashion magazines, and women on the street, it seems women are taking full advantage of the best fashion accessory your faceósunglasses.
Of course, not all colors look the same on all women. The key is knowing which colors work best with your tastes, as well as your natural appearance.
Basically, this relationship breaks down to matching a womanís natural color tones to the colors that she wears in her sunglasses. For example, a woman should know whether she has a cool skin complexion, or a warm complexion. Warm complexions tend to have yellow, orange, or peach colored skin tones, while cooler skin tones lean toward blue, olive, or pink undertones.
Your hair color can also help you determine the best color of shades for you. Bright blonds, vivid browns, fiery reds, and jet blacks are all warm colors for hair. Hay colored blonds, shiny blacks, whites, grays, and mixed browns are more on the cool side of hair colors. If you are unsure on where your hair falls on the warm-cool spectrum, let your skin tones guide you to the perfect color.
Ladies with warm complexions and/or warm hair colors may look best in frames in colors like, gold, bronze, tortoise, off-white, brown and aqua. Ladies with cool complexions and/or cool hair tones may look best frames with colors like white, silver, blue, pink, charcoal, violet and black. However, there are exceptions to every rule, and personal preference plays a big part in the color of sunglasses that are right for you. If you are still unsure on what frame color complements you, try the trendy rimless sunglasses that direct the focus on your face, not your sunglasses.
Most women already have an idea of what colors look best on them. But it never hurts to know there is a little fashion science behind your exquisite fashion sense, especially when the end result is a great pair of sunglasses.
