The Best Glasses for Your Face

Sep 21, 2015

You might not have thought so, but getting glasses can be a lot of fun! Whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, you're not alone; a lot of people rock glasses. They may have had a bad reputation in the past - those who wore them were sometimes made fun of - but style has really progressed since then. Glasses can now be a great fashion accessory, and are available in all shapes, colors, and sizes. With all that choice, you're sure to find something that will suit the shape of your face! 

Round Shape

  • If you have a round or circular face, you might want to try a frame with an angle to add a little more definition to your features.
  • Stylists often recommend rectangular frames to lengthen your face, and frames like aviators or cat's eye for some extra interest.
  • Cat's eye glasses are a lot of fun to wear; they evoke a retro style that might add a little pep to your step!

Heart-Shaped Faces

  • If you have a rounded face with a slightly narrower chin, your face shape is probably that of a heart-shaped.
  • Just like with a rounder face, angular frames are probably a good choice for you.
  • You can also pull of big, round frames! Because your forehead is a bit larger, you might want to avoid super embellished (like with rhinestones) glasses, though.
  • Too much detail on the upper part of the frame might take attention away from your eyes and lower face.

Square Faces

  • If you have a wide forehead, wide cheeks, and a wide chin, you most likely have a square-shaped face.
  • Your face is already fairly angular, so your best option is probably a round frame that will soften your strong features.
  • Don't go for an oval frame, though, as it will make your face seem wider than it really is.
  • You might even find that a nice, bold frame will be flattering on your face shape.

Oval Faces

  • If you have wide cheekbones and a slightly narrower forehead and chin, you have an oval face shape.
  • This is handy - you will probably have the easiest time finding a pair of glasses that is perfect for you.
  • Pretty much every frame style will fit, including round and square.
  • You might want to think about taking advantage of this versatility by amping up your frame game with some bright colors and perhaps even prints!

See? There are loads of fun glasses for you to wear! Because of online shopping, glasses are also cheaper and easier to get than ever before. Don't forget, though, that the above are only loose guidelines. Feel free to explore whatever glasses shape and style you like the best; it's your face and what you say goes!
