Business Couture: Bright Eyeglasses Are A Feast For The Eyes
Make a spectacle of yourself at the office in the latest trend: fun, flashy eyeglass frames.
The hottest trends for men and women include vibrantly colored frames, mixed materials, jewel embellishments and thicker temples, local experts say.
From acid-bright solids to multicolored looks, the hot hues are making an impact.
"Mixing different colors and materials is trendy," said Tanja Hinote, a licensed optician at Dr. Gene Terrezza and Associates, which has two locations in Pensacola and another in Milton. "People are finally seeing glasses as accessories and are a little more adventurous."
Just as mixed materials in garments feature things like canvas with bamboo, mixed materials in glasses include metal with plastic, plastic with leather and even metal with wood.
"However, plastic is currently the material of choice," said Sara Whitwell, frame buyer and technician at contact lens & Family Eyecare of Pensacola.
Also, the glasses' temples — sidepieces, arms or legs of the eyeglass frame — are getting chunkier, lending a retro look to the frames.
"It's all about the design of the temple pieces," said Mark Tegenkamp, CEO of Tegenkamp Optical Superstore, which has a Pensacola and a Mobile location. "The one style of eyeglasses that is not hot is the totally rimless look."

"The objective of facial shape and feature styling is to help the patient project a physical image that is flattering and balanced," Tegenkamp said.
Here is his guide to finding a pair that flatters your face shape:
• Oval: "This face shape is balanced and easy to fit, so most styles are suitable."
• Oblong: "Horizontal lines will shorten the face. Use a full rim."
• Round: "This face shape is shorter than an oval. High temples will help lengthen face. Use vertical lines, such as butterfly shapes. Rimless will lengthen the face."
• Bottom triangle (full jaw, narrow at the forehead): "Use high horizontal lines to widen forehead. Rimless narrows appearance. Avoid pilot shape."
• Square: "Use curved lines to reduce angles. Rimless and round shapes will soften lines.
• Diamond: "Use horizontal and curved lines. High temples reduce cheek lines. Be sure not to go beyond cheekbones."
