There are literally thousands of glasses styles to choose from, but finding the perfect pair doesn’t have to be a struggle. In fact, all you need to know is your face shape and you can narrow your selection down considerably. To help you out, we put together an infographic that gives some tips for choosing the right glasses for your face type. In this post, though, we’re taking a deeper dive into some options for all of you with square faces out there.
Best Glasses for Square Faces
When it comes to proportion, square faces are widest along the jaw and forehead. And because this shape is defined by the jawline, glasses that sit high on the nose add length that flatters this face. To draw focus to your strongest features, choose a rounded, rather than angular, frame. Rimless and semi-rimless frames are a great place to start. We recommend round and oval frames. Try to avoid anything square or geometric with lighter frame colors.
Finding the Style for You
