MISSION, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/14 -- (Family Features) While there's no magic way to transform your appearance overnight, you can freshen up your look through your eyewear. If you've worn the same glasses for years, a simple frame change can revitalize your face and style -- and even take years off of you.
For example, if you typically wear simple metal frames, try picking out a plastic frame with a pop of color or a unique temple design. It might seem out of your comfort zone at first, but frames that make a statement are stylish and can boost your confidence.
You can find frames for all face shapes and styles, but here are some fresh ideas for fall from the style experts at VSP Vision Care:
- You can't go wrong with tortoise shell and brown-toned glasses. These look great with all skin and hair colors, and they could be the perfect accessory for your autumn wardrobe.
- Colorful retro cat-eye frames can be worn casually or dressed up for any occasion. This style and color combination is a great way to make a fashion statement.
- Classic round frames with a hint of color inside the frame provide a light and comfortable fit. Though the inside coloring is subtle, those with complementary eye colors will notice that these frames make their eyes pop.
Seasonal trends aside, finding the right frame for your face will make your style shine. The VSP style experts also offer these tips to match your face shape with the most flattering frame.
Oval: This is the easiest face to fit because it's symmetrical. Nearly every frame shape looks good.
Oblong: Round, square or rectangular frames add width, as do details on the temples.
Round: Frames with angular lines add definition, and deep colors are slimming. Create length with rectangular frames.
Square: Round, oval and slightly curved frames are ideal. Think narrow frames too. They soften the jawline while still taking advantage of your athletic look.
Triangular: Frames with design details and color at the top help balance the face. Try cat-eye or semi-rimless frames.
Heart-shaped: Choose smaller frame styles without detail on the temples to balance the upper and lower halves of your face. Rectangular, square and aviator frames are just right.
Diamond-shaped: Top-heavy frames, like aviators, semi-rimless or cat-eye styles with details on the brow line, look great.
When choosing fashionable new frames, pay attention to proportion and fit. Ensure the eyewear fits properly on the bridge of your nose, so you're not pushing loose glasses back into place or forcing frames with a tight nose pad area onto a nose with a larger bridge. It's also important that your eyes are centered in the lenses. Not only will your glasses look well fitted on your face, but you'll see better. According to VSP's style experts, your doctor's office can help you find the perfect frames and fit them to your face.
When shopping for vision insurance, you want to look for great coverage on frame brands and other lens enhancements as part of your vision benefits package. Also, determine whether you can receive savings on additional pairs of glasses. If so, it might be worth purchasing an everyday pair, as well as a sassier frame for when you want to make a statement.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
