21st November 2014 In colour psychology, green has a variety of positive attributes – green is abundant in nature, and it is connected to prosperity. It’s also linked to renewal, balance, and growth, and creates a positive sense of equilibrium. In addition, green is emotionally positive. Eyewear designers embrace this colour with an array of beautiful greens in dynamic frames. At one time, there was a belief that green was difficult to wear on the face. Nowadays, green frames are available in lustrous, translucent interpretations that enhance the wearer’s complexion. Here are several stunning ways to Go Green.
