The Perfect Green Frames for St. Patrick’s Day—and Any Occasion

Posted on March 10th, 2022

Who knew nature’s neutral tone could be so stylish?

We think colour should always be welcome in one’s wardrobe, and glasses are no exception. Colourful frames are a great way to add some pizzazz into your everyday look, while showing off your unique personality and spirit. 

Don’t forget, frames can be festive, too. Why not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by styling yourself in some green glasses? After all, green is a go-to colour for many glasses-wearers, and there’s a reason it’s considered nature’s neutral tone.

From more subtle shades to brighter hues, green glasses come in endless forms, and will elevate any simple outfit. The beauty of green frames is that they can be both playful and professional looking, depending on the shade and style you choose. Not to mention, they’ll make certain eye colours (especially green and hazel) pop. 

Our favourite green frames 

We’ve curated a list of our five favourite frames that are sure to make onlookers feel green with envy (pun intended). You can find all of these gorgeous green styles (and more!) online or at an FYidoctors clinic near you. 

Morel 20073K 140 VD05

These Morel Eyewear frames are a real show-stopper. Not only do they feature a funky, distinctly different shape, but the emerald green shade is perfectly subdued—while still standing out in all the right ways. 

Etnia HARRY BKGR

Round frames are truly all the rage in the eyewear world, and this Etnia Barcelona pair fits the bill. The chic, wire glasses are the ideal olive tone that pairs perfectly with any outfit selection. 

Chloe CC0002O 003

These lightweight Chloe frames are equal parts modern and classic. Adding a pop of light sea green will take any look to a whole new level, and will also freshen up your facial features. 

Rayban RB 7199 8062

Whoever said the perfect frames did not exist hasn’t seen this simple yet stylish pair of ultralight and durable Rayban glasses. Beyond the universally-flattering shape, this shade of green is muted while still being unique.

NineWest-NW5186-320

Go green or go home with these tortoise frames by Nine West. The dark green shades keep the frames sleek and understated, which is complemented beautifully by the intricate tortoise design.

How to style green frames 

Green glasses are incredibly versatile, which means there are countless ways to incorporate them into your everyday outfits with ease. While green pairs well with other neutral shades, it also compliments pink, orange, and purple. In other words, if you pop on some pink lipstick, purple eyeshadow or an orange sweater, your green glasses will shine extra bright.

Silver and gold accents work wonderfully with green, too. Wearing delicate or chunky jewelry (specifically earrings, which sit right beside your frames) could further enhance and accentuate the green in your glasses. 

It’s also key to consider which shade of green works best with your skin tone. Generally speaking, those with cooler skin tones should go for blue-based greens, while people with warm skin tones should opt for more yellow-based greens. 

We mean green 

When choosing the perfect pair of eyeglasses, people typically tend to go for simple shades, like black and brown. Green is often overlooked as a top colour contender, though we firmly believe that shouldn’t be the case. After all, green is nature’s neutral, and it has the unique propensity to compliment anyone’s skin tone, eye colour, and sense of style.
