Over time, glasses have become more than just a necessity for people; they’ve also grown in popularity as a fashion accessory. Whether your glasses are being used for function or fashion or both, the right pair of frames can enhance your appearance by drawing attention to your best features. So, how do you know how to choose the right frame style for your face?

There are many factors that can play into picking the right pair, so consider a few aspects such as style, shape, size and color.

It also helps to think about what type of face shape you have, and how your features align. There are four different face shapes, including heart, round, square and oval. In order to best determine your overall face shape, you need to know how the main areas of your face are seen by other people. We suggest outlining your face on a recent picture of yourself to find out.

Here is a list of suggested frame shapes for each face shape:

Heart Shaped Face:

  • Rectangle
  • Round
  • Oval
  • Wayfarer
  • Square
  • Aviator

Round Shaped Face:

  • Rectangle
  • Square
  • Cat-Eye
  • Wayfarer
  • Aviator

Square Shaped Face:

  • Rectangle
  • Square
  • Cat-Eye
  • Wayfarer
  • Aviator

Oval Shaped Face:

  • Rectangle
  • Round
  • Square

Face shape plays such a vital role in determining what type of glasses will best accent your features and hide your imperfections. It also helps to have a confident sense of your best features. The right frames can help you accentuate your features, like making your eyes pop more, for example.

When you know what to look for, it’s easier to select the pair of glasses that are right for you without needing to try on every pair of glasses on in the store.
