SELECTING THE RIGHT FRAMES FOR YOUR FACE.
These three key factors are the most important when selecting your frames.
1) The frame shape should contrast with your face shape.
2) The frame size should be in scale with your face size.
3) Eyewear should reflect your best feature (e.g. blue eyes are enhanced by blue frames).
Long faces are rectangular in shape with a strong chin and defined cheekbones.
Try: Large wide frames that extend beyond the temple with sides positioned in the middle of the frame, help add width and shorten the face.
Avoid: Small square styles that make your face appear longer.
Round faces generally have soft features and a rounded jaw line.
Try: Angular frames such as rectangles, will lengthen your face, add definition and draw attention to your cheekbones.
Avoid: Small round glasses or very large shapes that echo the shape of your face.
Oval or heart shaped faces can be soft or angular, but are generally balanced in proportion.
Try: Rounded and square styles all suit this shape face. Slightly angular frames with a middle side position will add dynamic structure to your face.
Avoid: Heart shaped styles that echo the shape of the jaw.
Square shaped faces have distinctive jawbones, full cheeks and an even jaw and chin line.
Try: Finer shallow frames such as ovals and soft rectangular shapes will help soften your features. Choose a frame with a high side position to add length to your face.
Avoid: Square styles and those that are wider than your face.
