Which Eyeglass Frames Match Your Personality?

While face shape and lifestyle will play a big part in deciding on the perfect eyeglass frames for you, your personality and personal style are also important factors to consider. One of the things we pride ourselves on at our Kerrisdale eyewear store is helping our customers pick out the most flattering and functional frames. While nothing beats getting help from an eyewear pro at the Spectacle Shoppe, we thought we’d have a little fun by putting together a quiz to determine which eyeglass frames match your personality.
