Choosing a Frame


How Do I Choose a Frame?

Whether you prefer a relaxed and comfortable style or a put-together business look, the eyeglasses you choose should showcase your style. Much like your clothing, eyeglasses are an extension of your personality, so make sure you choose the frames that reflect you correctly. Since eyeglasses frame your face, they can either bring out your features or hide them. When choosing frames, how do you decide between glasses you like and glasses you should wear?

Not all glasses are for everyone. Here are few tips that help you determine which frames suits your face:

It might seem silly, but you can determine your face shape by drawing it in the mirror. Just look in the mirror, take lipstick, and draw the outer edges of your face. This will help you determine what shape you have, since for most people this is ambiguous!

Circle face shape: you have full cheeks, a soft chin and proportional forehead in length and width. You should try out frames that are the opposite of your face shape, especially rectangular shaped frames.

Square face shape: you have a strong jaw and broad forehead. You should try out frames that are opposite to your face shape, especially a cool circle frame.

Diamond face shape: you have a narrow forehead and jawline with wider cheeks. You should try out oval frames that sweep up, especially cat eye shape

Oblong face shape: you have a longer than wide face shape. You should try out wider and oversized glasses.

Heart face shape: you have a broad forehead and cheekbones with a narrow chin. You should try out rimless frames, thin metal or clear plastic frames

Rectangle face shape: you have a strong and long jaw (rather than wide). You should try out wide and oval frames.

Oval face shape: You have the easiest face shape to find glasses for. You can literally wear any style. Just choose one you like
