Alright so maybe you don’t want to look like a Rapper, but maybe you have wanted to look like a Surfer, a cast member from Jersey Shore, or a night club DJ. There are thousands of styles of frames on the market right now. A certain style of frame paired with the perfect outfit and you’ll have no trouble duplicating any of those styles. Let’s break it down a little bit and find the perfect shape frame to create the appearance you desire for the day.

Do you want to look like a Naturalist or Tree Hugger perhaps? I’ve got two really cool brands for you: Wood U? and Earth Wood. For those of you that follow our blog Larum recently talked about the Earth Wood brand so I’m sure you already know all the beautiful details, if not go back and read it! Both of these environment friendly brands use real wood to make their frames. You can get them with lots of different lens colors and wood shades. Any of these frames paired with a fitted white tee shirt, some worn out Levi’s, Chuck Taylors and a pony tail would be a complete Tree Hugger look. Check …

There’s always room for personality in eyewear, some look for the frame to scream and shout and otherwise makes a scene. However not everyone does. There are simple frames that have no soul and are ordinary, but there are also simple frames that are refined and singular that the wearer needs little else to distinguish them-selves. Which are you?

Here are some pointers to finding the perfect frames to accent your lovely locks!

Bodacious Blondes:  From pixie cut to Tangled hair, boys or girls, blondes look hot with contrasting light locks with black metal frames. For a very posh look, Tortoise shell and white frames will compliment your Blonde locks and for Blondes with darker skin tones, contrasting bright colors and prints will really make a statement.

Some things to keep in mind:

• Big white plastic frames look great whatever shade of blonde you are.

• When it comes to block colors, peroxide blondes can go for almost any palette with baby pinks and blues, reds and canary yellows.

Frames to try: Ray-Ban Cats 5000, Oakley Frogskins, DKNY DY4078B, and the Ralph Ra5126

Brainy Brunettes: You need bright, vibrant colors; this will add contrast when paired with a dark mane. Frames with tones of plum and maroon bring out blue and green eyes and Celtic skin tones, while olive skinned can easily work metallic frames. For a …
