Enabling vision defected customers to get additional enjoyment from wearing prescription eyeglasses has long been a significant task at the side of eyewear manufacturers and designers at brand houses. Using different colors to decorate Rx eyeglass frames has also become a common practice taken by many manufacturers. An obvious testimony to this trend and practical application is the huge variety of colored frames used in prescription eyeglasses, generating green glasses, yellow glasses, purple glasses, peach glasses, orange glasses and any other color that is imaginable. In particular, white as a special color has also been applied to the eyewear industry, bringing white eyeglasses. Most people know that this color has achieved certain popularity in many other fields. But its extension to the eyewear world in recent years has really brought additional benefit to customers who need Rx eyewear.
According to the theory about match-up between eyewear color and the wearer’s coloring, eyeglass frames in colors like peach, orange and off-white are most suitable for people who have a warm personal coloring. Compared with off-white, white is a more neutral color and thus can go well with both the groups with a warm color base and a cool color base. This may partially explain the universal popularity of white eyeglasses among folks of different races and consequently various skin tones. Of course, there are lots of people who choose frame color based on wholly personal preference, regardless of advice from professionals.
There are several ways to apply this color into eyewear designs. And there are corresponding examples or products from different brands. Certainly, regular prescription eyeglasses can be decorated or tinted only in their frames. One typical design is making the whole frame white. Marc Jacobs 28 white eyeglasses are a typical example of this design. However, a frame that is completely white may be too plain for most users. And a more popular design is to use two tones in a single frame. For instance, the front frame can be in white, while the temples are in black or other complementary colors. A variation is to apply white only to the temples, leaving the front frame in any other suitable color.
