Colorful frames are for creative typesMatthew Cohen/Rd.com
Glasses frames come in every imaginable color nowadays. While black and brown frames still exist, they are no longer the only options. Those who do dare to color their vision are typically very creative, says Lynn Green an optician at Pullen Eye Care in Jacksonville, Florida. “Artists love color,” she says. “They are very particular with what they like and they know what they like.” But artists aren’t the only ones who gravitate towards color frames. Both the extrovert and the introvert veer toward this kind of eye wear. “Usually bright, bold colors are somebody that’s fun and outgoing,” Green discerns, “but what’s nice about fun colors is somebody…who’s always been neutral and blends in, they’ve gotten to a point in their life where they’re like, ‘You know what, I need a change.'” While it is very natural for an outgoing person to pick up a pair of attention-grabbing glasses, shy people who are trying to break out of their shell can use these glasses as a means of putting themselves out there.

Thick black frames go largely to the young, hipster crowd. The people who wear these glasses are definitely trying to make a statement about themselves. Green describes this type as, “That bold, ‘look-at-me’ frame.” It has been her observation that the dark, thick, heavier frames have been the favorite of people in the late teens to 20s age range. These are the glasses that are one of the biggest trends. A person that has a pair of these glasses is probably young, bold, opinionated, and trendy.
