How to Find the Right Shape of Eyeglasses to Complement Your Face Shape

Last updated 6 years ago

Eyeglasses are not just for vision correction; they can be an everyday accessory to accent your personal style and enhance your favorite facial features. When you are shopping for a new pair of eyeglasses, you should be sure to try on a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors so that you can get a good idea of what suits you.

  • Look for inspiration: A great way to determine which types of frames may work for your face is to look at the glasses of others with face shapes similar to yours. There are many celebrities who casually sport eyeglasses, and their frame choices can be a great inspiration when looking for the perfect pair of glasses.
  • Explore popular styles: A popular trend for eyeglasses today is the revival of classic styles like horn rimmed glasses and dark plastic frames. Although these styles were traditionally worn by men, more and more women are choosing them today. If you are in search of a style that is timeless and sophisticated, rather than trendy, you may want to select a pair of rimless glasses.
  • Balance frames to your face: Big, oversized frames may work for sunglasses, but they are not for everyone when it comes to regular eyeglasses. Look for frames with a size that does not overpower your face and a shape that balances your features. For example, if you have a round face, you may want to select a rectangular or angled frame style.
  • Don’t be afraid of color: Eyeglass frames are excellent for incorporating a splash of color into your wardrobe. Three things to consider when selecting a color for your glasses are your skin tone, your eye color, and your hair color. Choose a frame color that works with these tones and with your wardrobe.
