Choosing the right frames to suit your face is one of the most important decisions when purchasing your prescription spectacles.

One way to make choosing a suitable frame easier is to select by the shape of your face and your colouring. If you don’t have the luxury of a savvy female shopper with you, a good optometrist can help you choose new frames to suit your face shape. Check the following list and discover the difference a new frame shape could make.

 

Square Face

 

Oval, Round, Cat’s eyes glasses
Reduce the angles with soft, curvy styles that will give definition. Glasses with cat’s eyes styles and classic oval glasses or sunglasses work well.

Oval Face

 

Any frame shape
Almost any style works well for an oval face; experiment with the latest looks, such as shields, square-shaped frames or higher temples. You can choose whatever style of glasses you like best!

Oblong Face

 

Round, Square glasses
Widen and shorten the face with styles that do not extend beyond the widest part of the face. Round or square shapes will look great. Decorative or contrasting temples add width to the face.


Round Face

 

Round, Square glasses
Widen and shorten the face with styles that do not extend beyond the widest part of the face. Round or square shapes will look great. Decorative or contrasting temples add width to the face.

Triangle Face

 

Straight top line, Cat’s eyes glasses
Soften the lower portion of the face by accenting the eye area. Cat’s eyes style glasses should angle out at the top corner, metal frames with rimless bottom also work well.

Diamond Face

 

Oval, Square, Rimless glasses
Oval glasses or sunglasses will soften the contour of the face. Make sure the styles are no wider than the top of the cheekbones.
