How to Pick Glasses for Your Face Shape

Ever have trouble trying to figure out what kind of frame is best for your face? Well you’re in luck! With our little guide, you’ll learn that there’s a frame for everyone — and we can tell you what the best fit is for you! 

What face shape do I have?

It is likely that you have one of the following face shapes: oval, square, round, heart, or diamond. By looking at a mirror and taking a close look at your facial features, you can find out which one matches you! Read on below to see how to determine which face shape you have, and what glasses will look perfect on you.

Which Glasses Shapes Suit Oval Faces?

Many different glasses shapes suit oval faces. A face with an oval shape features higher and slightly wider cheekbones that is slightly narrower towards the forehead. This long, rounded face shape allows you to pull off almost any style — especially oversized and wide frames. With an oval face shape, feel free to go bold with a funky color, texture or frame shape. Square, trapezoid, tortoise, and rectangular — the possibilities are endless!

Our only advice is to steer clear of narrow frames and frames with heavy design elements. They might add a bit of unnecessary length to your oval face.

Which Glasses Shapes Suit Square Faces?

Many different kinds of glasses shapes suit square faces. It’s hip to be square! If you have a square-shaped face, many great pairs of eyeglasses can flatter your features. When it comes to proportion, square faces are widest along the jaw and forehead. Due to this shape being defined by a strong jawline, glasses that sit high on the nose add length that flatters this face.
To draw focus to your strongest features, choose a dark and rounded, rather than angular, frame. A round eyeglass frame will soften as well as add contrast to your angular features, making your face stand out. Rimless and semi-rimless frames are a great place to start.
