Choosing the right eyeglass frames can enhance your features and express your personality. With various face shapes, it’s important to select a frame that compliments your natural contours. We’ll guide you through the process of finding the perfect frames for your unique face shape.
Oval Face Shape
If you have an oval face shape, you’re in luck! Considered the ideal face shape due to its balanced proportions, almost any frame style will suit you well. To maintain this natural harmony, aim for frames that are as wide as (or wider than) the broadest part of your face. Geometric shapes (Rectangle or Square) and bold colors can add an interesting contrast to your soft curves.
Round Face Shape
For those with a round face, the goal is to add definition. Choose frames that are wider than they are tall to elongate your face. Angular and rectangular frames will help sharpen soft edges and bring balance to your features. Steer clear of round frames, which might accentuate the roundness of your face.
Square Face Shape
With a square face shape, the focus is on softening the strong jawline and forehead. The best frames for you would be those that sit high on the nose, adding length and creating a more harmonious balance. Opt for frames that are more horizontal than vertical, and consider oval or round frames to soften angular lines.
Heart-shaped faces, characterized by a broad forehead and narrow chin, should aim for frames that balance the width of the forehead with the narrowness of the chin. Light-colored or rimless frames with a lower-set temple are ideal. Also, frames with a wider bottom than the top can help add width to the lower part of your face.
Long Face Shape
A long face shape benefits from frames that break up the face’s length, making it appear shorter and more balanced. Horizontal lines and decorative or contrasting temples help achieve this effect. Consider deeper, oversized frames or a bold, square design to add width to your face.
