Benefits of Choosing Metal Eyeglass Frames
Metal eyeglasses have several benefits, that for many, make them the obvious choice. Metal eyeglass frames tend to hold their shape much better when stacked up against frames made from materials like plastic, especially when you choose a thicker frame style.
This often results in less of a likelihood of needing to have the frames adjusted - and in the event that your frames do start to stretch, metal is typically much easier to adjust and get back to shape.
Wire eyeglass frames are an excellent choice, and are currently trending - but it’s important to keep in mind that they tend to be thinner than other styles of metal glasses, and in turn, might be slightly more prone to bending.
No glasses are completely accident-proof, but most styles of metal eyeglasses come closer than many of the other kinds of frames available that are made from other materials.
If you only wear your glasses part of the time and take them off and on a lot, choosing a sturdy frame style made from metal could go a long way in prolonging the lifespan of your glasses.
Although, if you choose metal wire rimmed glasses or another thinner style of metal eyeglass frames, you’ll need to be a touch more careful. Metal glasses also have the added advantage of being lighter than frames made from bulkier materials, which makes them a great choice for those who tend to get sore from wearing heavier frames.
The Perfect Frame Color For Your Metal Glasses
Metal eyeglasses and wire eyeglass frames don’t come in as broad of a color range as plastic frames do, but in this day in age designers have found all sorts of ways to get creative with metal, and you’ll still have quite a few color options to choose from.
While this makes nailing the right look easy, it also makes choosing the right color a little more tricky. If you don’t know your skin tone already, figuring that out can go a long way in making color selection easier. Not just for metal glasses, but for frames of all kinds.
Once you’ve established whether you have a warm or cool skin tone, you can begin to determine what frame colors will highlight your natural glow. Generally speaking, cool tones pair best with cool colors and warm tones pair best with warm colors.
Have a warm skin tone? You’ll be able to really bring your complexion to life with a pair of gold or bronze toned metal glasses. This frame material also comes in a variety of warm colors and patterns, so grab a second pair while you’re at it for those days when you’re in the mood for something bold.
Have a cool skin tone? If so, you’ll love the way silver metal frames accent your complexion and allow it to glow. If you want something a little more exciting than a basic silver colored metal, you’ll have a number of other options to go through ranging from single colors and patterns that feature cool shades.
This day in age, metal frames are anything but boring, so don’t be afraid to try out something new. At Overnight Glasses, we have over 8 pages of metal prescription glasses to choose from for both men and women, and also offer metal frame sunglasses!
