Fashionable frames for every face.
Finding a frame that fits your face shape and showcases your individual style can be a challenge. There are a few points to consider when choosing eyewear that enhances your best features and complements the shape of your face. Follow these tips to select the best frames for your face shape:
It’s Hip to Be Square
People with square faces are typically described as having a strong face. The width of your forehead, cheekbones, and chin are pretty equal to one another. You’ll want to think about contrasts when fitting frames to your face.
Your best bet? Avoid glasses with hard lines and instead focus on softer curves. Round, oval, and slightly curved frames are ideal. Consider narrow frames as well, to help soften the jawline.
No Way ‘Round It
Round faces are all about curves. You’ve got full cheeks, few angles, a round chin, and generally your face is the same length and width. Has anyone ever complimented you on your cherubic features? Hello angel, so pleased to meet you!
Your best bet? Strong frames with interesting angles will look great on you. Also, because you’ve got great cheeks, you can emphasize them with frames that have a slight upsweep at the corners. To create length, consider rectangular frames in deep colors.
Queen of Hearts
The heart-shaped face is wider at the forehead and gently narrows down at the jawline. You may have a pointy chin (but it’s a cute kind of pointy!). Focus on balance when selecting a pair of frames.
Your best bet? You can’t go wrong with a frame that is light and rimless, as it will balance your facial proportions. Round frames are also a good bet, as they help to soften a prominent forehead. Shy away from glasses that are wider at the top, as they’ll further accentuate the widest part of your face.
Ogle the Oval
You have symmetric, balanced features, high cheekbones, and your face is typically longer than it is wide, with a rounded chin. The most versatile face shape—most any frame will look great on you!
Your best bet? Pick frames that are just as wide—or wider—than the broadest part of your face. Avoid frames that are overly circular, since you want to offer a contrast. Your face will look fab in just about any frame, so experiment until you find the ones you can’t live without!
