There’s a perfect pair (or pairs!) of glasses out there for everyone. With so many frames to choose from at Zenni, finding the most flattering style for your face can seem like a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. We created a helpful infographic that breaks down which glasses are best for each face type, but in this post we’ll go in depth on finding the best glasses for diamond shaped faces and then offer some of our favorites to make your choice a bit easier.
Choosing glasses for diamond faces
Similar to a triangular face shape, this distinctive face shape normally means you’ve got full cheeks that sit in line with your strong chin. To elongate your face, try an edgy and angular frame for a look that’ll add balance. We suggest browline, cat-eye and oval glasses for diamond faces.
Finding the style for you
Eye-catching, unique frame shapes add some flair to your look while complementing your features. Afraid of too many embellishments but still want to stand out? Try a bold frame color for a look that’s hard to forget. Pick a color that works well with your wardrobe color palette so you never have to go without your glasses to look and feel stylish and chic. These ultra-thin cat-eye glasses in soft lilac purple strike an ideal balance between vibrant and delicate – perfect for adding a finishing touch to any outfit.
