There is no better time in fashion than now to embrace a quirky pair of glasses. So go forth and pick a style that best suits your unique face shape. Here are some tips:
Square face: Strong, prominent jaw line, square chin and broad forehead.
-Avoid glasses with hard lines and angles. These may make your face look boxy.
-Look for glasses with frames slightly wider than the widest part of your face for appropriate proportions.
-Round frames, cat-eye and pilot shapes will best flatter a square face.
Heart-shaped face: Broader forehead with narrow chin and jaw.
-Choose frames that are wider at the bottom to minimize width at the top of the face.
-Pick a shape that complements the width difference of the face by choosing frames with a straight top and subtle wings.
Oval face: Balanced features with a chin slightly narrower than the forehead.
-Square, rectangle or upswept glasses will offset a rounded face.
-Oval is a versatile shape but pay close attention to scale. Frames that are too big or too small will throw off the face’s balance.
Oblong face: The length of the face exceeds the width and features are rounded.
-Choose larger frames to break up a longer face
-Rounded, wrap frames are recommended. Draw inspiration from the aviator look.
Round face: The width and length of the face are almost equal.
-Pick frames that are angled, structured and slim
-Frames that are wider than they are deep are suggested
-Wide, dark frames are suggested
-Try frames with a slight upsweep at the corners
Picking frames can be a challenge, but we hope these tips will steer you in the right direction. The best part about looking this good is how well you'll be able to appreciate the sight!
