The significance of red
Just as red lipstick gives a woman confidence, red glasses have also been providing the same empowering effect throughout history. From Sally Jessy Raphael’s iconic oversized glasses to Elton John’s ruby-tinted specs in every shape imaginable, the audacious shade was, and still remains to be, everyone’s go-to when it comes to channeling their most fearless self.
How to choose red glasses
No two pairs of red glasses are the same. For anyone who dares to wear this striking hue, consider starting your search by looking for frames that are naturally flattering on your face shape. An ubiquitous cat eye is great for drawing the eye upward, while a square style contours and adds a touch of retro to your look.
Another thing to consider when searching for the perfect red frame is your skin tone. Blue-based reds will look amazing against a cool toned complexion, whereas orange-reds are perfect for those with warm undertones.
No matter the hue, a red frame will always be a fashion statement of its own. A scarlet frame adds just the right amount of color to a neutral wardrobe, and provides contrast to any jewel toned fit. But, if you’d like something a bit more muted, a deep red or wine-colored frame will always be an elegant choice, especially if you find black frames too stark. Similarly, you can also try a two-toned frame for a fun pop of red.
