FINDING A FRAME TO SUIT YOUR FACE SHAPE
It can be very difficult to find the correct spectacle frames in colour and shape to suit you. Here is a guide to help choose
Glasses Shapes To Suit a Round Face
To complement your face shape, look for angular frames that provide contrast like square, rectangular or cat eye frames. As always fit is important – but for round faces especially, it is best to avoid oversized and too-tight frames.
Glasses Shapes To Suit a Square Face
Look for eyewear with soft contours and lighter lines to compliment your features, like rounded or cat eye frames. Semi-rimless and rimless glasses can also be a great option as along with the curved silhouette of your glasses frame your new eyewear will provide great contrast to the angularity of your face. Typically, avoid rectangular and square style that may intensify these sharper features.
Glasses Shapes To Suit an Oval Face
Oval face shapes are very lucky as they suit almost every frame shape. You can try anything from rounded frames to bold, geometric more rectangular faces but consider proportion. Smaller faces should try and stick to smaller frames – unless you’re going for that oversized look of course – maybe try some half-rim frames or micro-frames. You can also try some strong aviators or large square sunglasses!
Glasses Shapes To Suit a Heart-Shaped Face
For your heart-shaped face, we’d recommend looking for glasses that are wider than the widest part of your face. Find a frame shape that balances the widths of your face and sits comfortably on your cheekbones such as aviator frames.
