Choosing the Right Glasses for Your Face Shape


There are a lot of people that have a hard time picking what shape of glasses frames to get. There are also those that have totally given up on the whole glasses thing because they feel no shape of frames will fit their face, I think they are wrong. Different face shapes have specific kinds of frames that suit them, and because i'm so nice, i'm going to give you tips to make your search for the perfect frames a lot easier.

So how do you decide what shape of glasses goes well with your face? Well first of all, you have to figure out what shape your face is. I'll help you out with that...

Round face: If you have a round face, the length and width of your face will be almost the same.
Square face: You have a strong jawline and a broad forehead
Heart shaped face: Your forehead is very obviously wider than your chin.
Oval face: Your face is long and thin, with a chin slightly slimmer than your forehead

If your face is round, square frames will suit your face best. Round frames may make your face appear rounder than it already is. Create balance with frames that have angular shapes.

For Round Face shape

Soften the hardness of your jaw lines with frames that have rounded edges, square or angular frames may exaggerate the squareness of your face. Proportion is also important, the larger your face, the larger the frames should be.

For Square face shape

Aviator glasses work best for this face shape. Unlike the square and round face shapes, we are looking for frames that are similar to your face shape, and aviators do the trick. They complement the heart shape of your face because they are wider at the top, just like your face.

For Heart-Shaped face

This is the anything goes face shape. Most frames work well with this face shape, so if you have this face shape, consider yourself a lucky ducky. I am a lucky ducky!

For Oval face shape

  • Proportion is very important. If you have a small face or small facial features, go for small frames, avoid large frames. Large faces should go for larger frames.
  • The gap between the glasses and the side of your face should not be much. Choose glasses that are the same width as your face, not wider...because it will look odd.

Stylishly yours,
