If you are looking for a new pair of glasses for yourself, there is a big chance you might be overwhelmed by the number of choices out there. It is a big decision, after all. Your eyeglasses have a huge impact on how you look and feel, and you want to make sure you choose the right ones. There are certain types of frames that work best for certain face shapes, and we are here to help you find the best trendy glasses for yourself. No matter what your face shape is – oval, round, triangle, inverse triangle, or whatever, there is a perfect pair of eyeglasses just for you; and we will help you find them!
We have curated a list of the best type of frames for you according to the shape of your face.
- Square face shape
If you have equally wide cheekbones, forehead and jaw, you have a square face shape. For this face shape, it is best to select thin and round frames that are a little wide on the sides. These frames can help you soften your angular features. Round glasses and oval shaped frames work best with square face shapes.
- Oval face shape
With slightly wide cheekbones and a little narrowing at the forehead and jaw, oval face shapes are one of the most versatile ones when it comes to eyeglasses. For oval face shapes, it is best to go with frames that are bigger in size with a bold shape. Rectangular and square frame glasses go best with ova shaped faces.
- Triangle face shape
If your face is widest at the jaw and narrows as you move up to the forehead, your face is triangular. For such a face shape, you want to look for glasses that are the opposite of your face shape, i.e., bold on top and narrower at the bottom, with detailing on the upper portion and a fun mix of round and angular shapes. For triangle face shapes, D-frames, aviators and cat eye glasses are the best choice. These will go perfectly with your features and complement your style.
- Heart face shape
A face that is widest at the forehead and narrows down to the jaw is known as a heart shaped face. Heart face shapes are also considered one of the most versatile ones, so you can go ahead and experiment with whatever you like. What might work best for you are glasses that are winged out with rounded bases – like bottom heavy frames, rimless frames, oval frames, and more. They can complement your features and add balance to your looks.
- Round face shape
Round faces have wide cheekbones and equally wide forehead and jaw, with soft angles. People with round face shapes are often advised to choose frames that help them sharpen their features. If you are looking for something similar, rectangular, upswept and other geometric shaped frames might be the best choice for you. Just make sure that the glasses have bold and angular lines, and that the bottom hits just above your cheekbones, and you will be good to go.
