Need new eyeglasses? The choices in women's frames are nearly unlimited. But that's sometimes the problem: How do you find the frame styles that look best on you?

How Many Frames Do You Need?

Most women don't hesitate to buy more than one pair of shoes, so why balk at buying more than one pair of eyeglasses?

If you're really on a tight budget, then by all means choose one frame that you'll be happy wearing with any outfit and in any situation. But it doesn't mean you have to choose a plain, thin metal frame if you really like eyewear that's bold and colorful. Remember, this frame is going to be on your face every single day, and you have to like how it looks on you.
