What do shoes and frames have in common?

When it comes to buying a new pair of shoes, not only do you want to look good, you also need to feel comfortable. A nice pair of shoes will not only complement your outfit, they will boost your confidence and add that extra pizzazz in your walk.  Quality should always be your first consideration especially if you are going to spend a lot of time in these shoes. When buying shoes, you need to consider: 

•Purpose (Going to work versus party)

•The size and shape of your foot

•Does the colour suit the style of your outfit?

Finding the right pair of frames is no different from choosing a pair of shoes except that it can be even more daunting. It becomes even more difficult if you happen to forget to wear your contact lenses, and you cannot see yourself in the mirror when trying out several pairs of frames. 

A well fitted pair of frames will not only make you look and feel fabulous, you will feel comfortable and you will be able to see well. 

When choosing a pair of frames, there are more factors to consider including:

•Purpose (Going to work versus sport)

•Your facial width

•Your eyebrow and cheek lines

•The bridge of your nose and where the frames sit

•Your complexion and hair colour

•Do the frames suit your style and personality?

And more!

Our eyewear stylists at Visique have been trained in frame fitting and have the expertise to help you choose that perfect pair of frames to make you look and feel fabulous. Visit us today! For locations, visit: http://www.visique.co.nz/practice
