The Best Glasses for Your Facial Shape


Looking for new glasses? Choose a pair that will match the shape of your face so you can show off your best features. Here’s a quick guide of what to look for in your new frames.


People with oval faces usually have the most choices when it comes to glasses. With high cheekbones and balanced features, an oval face is the most versatile and the easiest to match. A variety of different styles can complement your face shape. Stick with traditional frames or go all out with bold styles and colors.


Round faces are characterized by wide cheeks and a round chin. If you have a rounder face, glasses with rectangular frames are usually the best choice. These help sharpen the softer lines of your face and help it look a little narrower.


A heart-shaped face is widest at the forehead, and gradually narrows down to the jaw. Look for frames that are a little wider than your face in order to create a slightly more rounded appearance. Glasses with details–especially on the lower half of the frames–often make a good complement for heart-shaped faces.


People with square-shaped faces have a wide forehead and a strong jawline. These can be softened by round frames, or ones with slightly upswept edges. Look for neutral colors and relatively thin frames. Like heart-shaped faces, square faces also be rounded out by frames that are slightly wider than your face.
