All of the glasses colors that look great with white or gray hair can be divided up into three categories: Neutral colors, Jewel tones, and Pastels.

Neutral Colors

We'll start with the classic neutrals, which are always in style. 

1. Black

Black frames are a classic choice for glasses and look great with gray hair. They add a sophisticated and timeless look that will never go out of style.

I love these black frames with Carmen's beautiful salt and pepper curls.

2. Tortoise Shell

Tortoise shell frames are a great option if you want to add a little bit of flair to your look. The warm, earthy tones of tortoise shell frames will blend nicely with your gray hair, creating a unique and eye-catching look.

They also provide an interesting contrast between the warm tones of the frames and the cooler tones of your hair.

So pretty in Rebecca's shoulder-length gray hair.

3. Rose Gold

I love how the rose gold color of these glasses perfectly complement Mariah's skin tone and beautiful long gray hair. They give a classy youthful look!

Mariah said she loves these glasses that she got from Zenni Optical. The beautiful rose gold frame is only $15.95, so the total for Mariah's frame plus lenses was only $40! That is a great deal on a lovely pair of glasses!

4. Silver

Silver frames are a great way to add a touch of sparkle to your look. The metallic frames will complement your gray hair and create a glamorous and chic look.
They are also a great option if you want to draw attention to your eyes and make them the focus of your look.

I love these silver frames with Alicia's cute short white hair.

5. Red

Nothing says you love life like a fun pair of bright red glasses!

Love this fun photo of Violet sporting her red glasses in her spunky short gray hair.

Not quite ready for bright jewel tones? Try a pretty pastel color in blue or pink that compliments your outfit.

Then add a bright pop of lip color to brighten it up!

10. Gray Blue

I love these gray blue glasses in Violet's beautiful blue outfit with shades of teal and turquoise. They add to the elegance of her gray hair updo with side-swept bangs.
(And how cute are those fun sea turtles?!)

Tip: Choose a color that complements your skin tone

Keep in mind your skin tone when choosing what color glasses frames to go with.

Cool skin tones look best in jewel tones, whereas warm skin tones can wear gold or brown tones more easily.

The same colors that make you look your best in your clothing are usually the same that would look great on you for your glasses.
