What color sunglass lenses suit your skin tone?
Now that you know the different benefits of the color variations available, you can consider which color is likely to suit you best. Take a look at your skin tone and the lens colors that suit it below:
Cool skin tones
If you burn easily or have visibly blue veins beneath your skin, you have a cool skin tone. If you have dark skin, it may be harder to tell, but look for your undertones - they will be either warm or cool.
The best color lenses for cool skin tones are black, blue, green, silver, and pink if you’re feeling bold. These colors will compliment your skin perfectly.
Warm skin tones
If you have tanned skin, warm undertones, or brown or black eyes, you likely have a warm skin tone. If you have this skin tone you can go a little bolder with your lenses, as many different shades will suit you well.
Try yellow, red, or pink. Purple and blue will also look great against your skin, so feel free to choose whichever shade you find the prettiest. And don’t forget to match your glasses to your personal style while you’re at it.
