The right pair of frames for your glasses can make or break your look. Have you ever looked at someone wearing glasses and thought, “I love those frames?” Just because you love how they look on that person does not mean they will be the best pair of frames for you. Here are some tips and tricks to finding a flattering pair of frames that your optometrist can help you with. Call or visit us at Today's Vision - Frisco, TX, to learn more!
Finding Flattering Frames
Ask our optometrist, and we will tell you that face shape is key in finding the perfect pair of frames to flatter your face. The general rule of thumb is to never wear frames that are the same shape as your own face. That is, if you have a round facial shape, round framed glasses will not be the most flattering. Now, if you love a pair of frames and must have them, by all means, choose them. However, if you are looking for a pair of glasses that will flatter the shape and appearance of your facial features, try these tips!
Frames for Your Face
What shape frames are best for your distinct facial shape? There are some general guidelines that you can follow when trying on frames at your next optometrist appointment:
If you have a square face, you likely have a broad forehead and wide chin. The length and width of a square face are usually the same measurement. Soften the shape with oval or wider framed glasses.
Speaking of oval, if you have an oval shaped face, you have high cheekbones and a forehead that is slightly wider than your chin. In these instances, rectangular or diamond-shaped frames are most flattering.
Do you have a long or oblong facial shape? The most flattering frames will make the face seem shorter, less long, and are usually round or triangular shaped.
If you have a full or round face, look for edgy or angular shaped frames that are not wide across. This will make the face appear a bit longer.
Heart shaped faces often resemble an upside-down triangle. These shapes are flattered most by frames that are aviators, as well as rimless style frames.
For other faces, like diamond and dramatically angular shapes, oval frames will soften hard jaws or high cheekbones. Rimless frames also blend and are cohesive with many facial shapes.
