Should I match the frame color to the lens color?

Matching Frame and Lens Color

Unless you buy tinted eyeglasses, you don't need to worry about matching eyeglasses frames and lens colors. When you're buying a designer eyeglass frame for sun reading glasses, you need to consider the overall effect. Matching a blue-gray eyeglass frame to a light blue lens seems a good choice if you have blue eyes and a cool complexion. However, you can also choose a darker or silver-tinted lens for your eyeglasses frame. Contrast between eyeglass frames and lenses (for example gold eyeglass frames and gray or black lenses), especially with hand-painted eyeglasses frames, aren't a face or fashion faux pas.
