How to Choose the Right Frames for Your Face

Are you in the process of trying to pick out some new eyewear? It can be challenging to find a pair of frames that suits your face, especially if you haven’t needed new glasses in a while. Before you head to the optometrist, assess the shape of your face and narrow down your choice of frames accordingly. Here are some pointers to help guide the way.

If you have a round face…

Stay away from round, small frames that can exaggerate your facial features. Instead, look for square or rectangular frames that can better complement your face. These frames will have a slimming effect on your face and accentuate your best features.

If you have an oval face…

Look for a pair of geometric frames with a strong bridge. Ideally, they should be just slightly wider than the broadest part of your face. Avoid frames that are especially large, however, as they can overwhelm your face and disturb its natural symmetry.

If you have an angular face…

You should typically avoid square and rectangular frames. Instead, you can soften the angles of your face with round or oval frames that sit high on the bridge of your nose. These frames will make your face appear more balanced and comfortable.
