Frames To Suit Your Face Shape

Frames To Suit Your Face Shape

When buying frames it's important to hone in on shapes that will suit and fit your face whilst complementing your image and lifestyle needs.

Face Shape Guide

Oval : Go for rectangular frames, as they make your face appear wider. A semi-rimless pair will work best. Avoid round frames, as they will diminish your features.

Rectangular : Try a vintage style in a medium-size: too big and it will shrink your face, too small and it will enlarge it, drawing attention away from your features.

Round : Choose frames that give your face structure and definition. Avoid thick frames and circular shapes, as they will make your face look large and undefined. Opt for angular or rectangular styles with a narrow frame.

Square : For this strongly defined facial shape, choose either oval or round frames. Thicker frames will work well as they help to give shape to the cheekbones.

Triangular : Rectangular frames will complement a triangular face shape. Alternatively, butterfly frames with a soft gradient will create a feminine shape.

Heart : Heart-shaped faces already have a lot of definition, so your frames should bring out your jaw line and cheekbones. Achieve this with oval or square-shaped frames, thick, geometric frames, or cat eyes.
