Glasses Shapes for Face Types

GLASSES SHAPES FOR FACE TYPES Finding glasses to suit your face is a must, as your frames play a big role in your overall look. Different glasses shapes highlight or downplay certain features. When searching for a new pair of spectacles, the vast array of choices can be overwhelming. Therefore, we've created a handy guide for determining the best glasses for your face shape. While everyone has unique attributes and most people will never fit one standard, there are several basic face shapes. They are most commonly divided into the following categories: ROUND SQUARE OVAL HEART most closely resembles you. Here we go: Choose one EYEGLASSES FOR ROUND FACES: MILA KUNIS KANYE WEST Softer features and a circular shape characterize a round face. The length and width of the face are about equal. The jawline tends to be rounded. Structured, square or rectangular frames will create the illusion of angles. Slightly upswept corners work too as they will narrow the face a bit. EYEGLASSES FOR SQUARE FACES: RYAN SEACREST ANGELINA JOLIE If you have a square face your features are angular and strong. Your forehead, jaw and cheekbones are approximately the same width and your jawline is sharp and well-defined. Go for frames that are wider than your cheekbones for balance. Round and oval frames will soften your face. Don't be afraid to rock the cat eye frames either. EYEGLASSES FOR OVAL FACES: JAKE GYLLENHAAL BEYONCÉ Oval faces are defined by balanced features. The length of the face is about one and a half times the width. The chin is slightly narrower than the hairline. The oval is the most versatile shape in this face shape guide. While you're lucky enough to be able to get away with basically any eyeglasses, maintain balance with upswept, square and rectangle shapes. Oversized styles will also complement your features. EYEGLASSES FOR HEART SHAPED FACES: REESE WITHERSPOON RYAN GOSLING In a heart shaped face, the cheeks are slightly wider than the forehead and the forehead is significantly wider than the jawline. The chin is sometimes pointed. Wayfarer, oval and round shapes can help bring the different widths into harmony. Rimless styles also look stunning. DON'T THINK YOUR FACE FITS INTO THESE CATEGORIES? No worries. Simply determine if your face is more angular or curved and pick frames in a contrasting shape. The Spectacle Shoppe carries frames to fit all shapes and sizes.
