How to Select the Best Frames for Your Face

When choosing the proper frame style, one must first consider the wearer’s face shape. This is important to get the right fit as different eyeglass frame styles fit certain face shapes much better than others do. As an overall rule for picking out the right frame type for ones face, you must remember that opposites attract. This means that you select the eyeglass shapes that contrast from your own facial profile to bring symmetry and balance to your face’s prominent features.

For instance, square or rectangular eyeglass frames are very good for round faces as rectangular or square shapes look wider when placed on a round face. This quality enhances your look by making your face appear slimmer and longer than it actually is. Frames with geometric shapes, a strong bridge, and are relatively wider than the broadest part of the facial profile fit oval shaped angular faces really well. Square or angular shaped faces can benefit from using oval or round eyeglasses, as they balance and softens sharp features. Eyeglasses that have a swept-up profile, or are wider than the cheeks suit people with diamond shaped faces as they accentuate the cheekbones and eyewear with a low-set temple and a heavy bottom frame line suit heart-shaped faces best.

It is also important to consider your lifestyle when choosing a particular frame type, especially one which would be seeing daily use. Always go for comfort and utility over style in this case to ensure that your pair of glasses stand up to the rigors of daily use. For specialized use, non-prescription frames, or in instances where utility is not as important, just follow the guidelines for picking out the right frame shape style for your particular face shape. In terms of color, you can follow a general rule of picking a shade that is closest to your skin tone.
