Oval face shapes usually have balanced features with high cheekbones and the chin is often narrower than the forehead. Almost every pair of glasses will look great on an oval face; just be sure to select a frame that balances your bone structure. Frames with detailed temple embellishments always work well with oval faces. Look for bold shapes, colors and textures, and a size that balances the rest of the face.
Round face shapes usually have full cheeks and a rounded chin and are easily identifiable as a circular appearance. When you select a frame, choose shapes that add contrast to your face’s natural curves. Great shapes to choose from include rectangles, squares, and Clubmaster styles. Look for eyewear with strong details, wider lenses, and possibly nose pads to lift the frames off your cheeks.
People with a square face shape usually have a prominent jawline and angular features. Because of the angular bone structure, you may want to select frames with curves to soften the angles. Thinner frames usually look great on square face shapes. Look for eyewear with curves, like round, oval frames or aviator shapes.
Heart face shapes often have a narrow chin that is smaller than the forehead. High cheekbones are another feature of heart shapes. When choosing a frame, try a shape that will minimize the width of the top of the face. You may want to look for lighter colors, two-tone, or gradient colors on the frames’ front.
Oblong faces are defined by their length — they are about twice as long as they are wide, which is why they’re also known as “long” faces. With oblong-shaped faces, the forehead, cheekbones and jawline are roughly the same width.
Diamond face shapes are often defined when your cheekbones are the widest part of your face. Your forehead is approximately the same width of your jawline and your chin. Choose a big frame to enhance your eyeline.
