4. Being stylish is not based on age
Just because somebody is over 50 doesn't mean that they can't wear stylish specs.
Get rid of stodgy frames
Instead of sporting the usual frames marketed for "older" people, choose something fresh that could give you a youthful appearance. Avoid frames with a matte finish, especially those colored black, brown, or gray.
Frames with glossy finishes give a youthful appearance to the face.
5. The eyeglass is for you if it suits your skin tone.
No matter how fashion-forward an eyeglass frame is, if it doesn't suit your skin tone, then ditch it.
How to determine your skin tone
Our skin tone is categorized as "warm" or "cool." You belong in the warm if your skin has a yellow undertone or a "peaches and cream" cast. Meanwhile, you have a cool complexion if you have pink or blue undertones.
Olive skinned people belong in the "cool" category since they have a mix of blue and yellow undertones.
Brownish shades are good for people with cooler skin tones.
6. Make sure your eye color suits the stylish frame of your choice
Since you will be using glasses for your eyes, the best reason for the frame that you choose should be the color of your eyes.
What is the shade range of eye colors?
Brown eyes can be anything from warm cider shades to medium brown to a cool, almost black hue. Meanwhile, blue eyes can range from a cool violet to a pale blue-grey.

Warm hair colors, on the other hand, include, brownish-black, brown gold, golden blonde, orange, yellow, fiery red, and dirty grey.
