The Easiest Way to Find Sunglasses That Match Your Skin Tone, Hair and Eye Colour

Choosing the right sunglasses lens colour

We all know the feeling of going to an optician to shop for stylish new sunglasses. Our new sunnies should be trendy, but also match our eyes, face shape and skin colour. Dozens of models are waiting for us, all unique and pretty. So we try on as many glasses as we can to find THE PERFECT MODEL.

But do all the sunglasses we try on also suit our features? Do they actually complement our skin tone and our eye or hair colour, or are they just a fashionable accessory that doesn't suit us?

Save your precious time and simply find your new sunglasses online with the help of our colour guide! We'll show you which ones really suit you!

1. Sunglasses that match your skin tone

First of all, we want to determine your skin tone because this gives you information about the colour of your next sunglasses’ frames and lenses.

Cool skin tones

Cool skin tones can be easily determined: If you quickly get sunburned, have blue, green or grey eyes, and have blue veins instead of green, your skin tone is likely to be cool rather than warm.

The best sunglasses for cool skin tones

With a cool skin tone, choose green, purple, blue, pink or silver sunglasses frames. When choosing the lens colour, try blue, pink and silver. These colours will best match your tan and eye colour.



Some people have a mixture of cool and warm skin tones. You can choose between warm and cool colour palettes. But what are the best colours for warm skin tones?

Warm skin tone and sunglasses

Warm skin tones

Warm skin tones are characterized by tanned skin, brown or black eyes, and green rather than blue veins.

The best sunglasses for warm skin tones

With a warm skin tone, try red, brown, beige, orange, golden or yellow frames. These colours flatter your skin. Choose fiery colours or a juicy brown for your sunglasses lenses. Your lenses will suit your skin and eyes perfectly if you choose colours in these areas.



Our recommendations for both cool and warm skin tones

2. Sunglasses that match your hair colour

Not only your skin tone but also your hair colour plays an important role when it comes to finding sunglasses that complement your style. Read on to find out which ones best suit your type.

Warm blonde hair and sunglasses

Warm blonde

Warm blonde hair has a honey or bronze undertone and tends to lie on the darker side of the blonde spectrum. People with warm blonde hair can choose from a variety of colours. Brown tones are an excellent choice when buying sunglasses that go well with warm blonde hair. Blonde-haired people also look great with the hip Havana pattern.



Cool blonde hair and sunglasses

Cool blonde

Strawberry, platinum and ash blonde people have a slightly lighter hair colour than their warm blonde counterparts. Cool blonde haired people look gorgeous in colours such as black, blue and violet, as they create a harmonious contrast. In addition, cooler pink tones go perfectly with cool blonde hair.

Warm Brown

If you have golden or red undertones in your hair tone, you probably have warm brown hair. That's why warm, natural colours like green, red, or gold suit you. In addition, the trendy Havana pattern suits you perfectly.



Cool brown hair and sunglasses

Brunettes with cooler, darker hair usually have an ashy undertone in their hair colour. Black, pink or blue sunglasses, therefore, suit you well. However, cooler brown and beige tones complement your hair colour best.

Red hair can also have different tones. There are cooler red tones and warm orange tones. However, all shades of red are matched by green sunglasses frames or lenses that create a beautiful contrast to your hair.

Our sommer recommendation for red hair? Try these Marc Jacobs Marc.

Black hair and sunglasses

Black hair

If you have black hair, there are also two different tones here. The cool shades go perfectly with blue sunglasses, while the warmer colours look stunning with brown glasses. In general, black always looks good in combination with black or green, or red and purple.

Grey hair and sunglasses

White and grey hair

Also white hair has a cool and a warm variant. While white hair is rather cool, grey hair belongs to the warm tones. In general, however, we can recommend lighter and more colourful sunglasses for all tones. Red or beautiful purple tones are best. Avoid brown or beige sunglasses as they steal the show from your white hair.
