There isn't a better accessory to update your style than a new pair of frames. Eyeglasses have become a must have for any fashion lovers wardrobe. Whether you wear them with prescription lenses, as blue light blockers, or just to make a statement, eyewear can add the finishing touch to any outfit. There are a lot of stylish frames that favor the bold - but if bigger or colorful isn't your thing - there are plenty of classic shapes and neutral colors that are just as stylish.
Which Eye Glasses to Choose Based on Your Face Shape
An oval face features higher and slightly wider cheekbones. This long rounded face shape allows you to pull off almost any style, especially oversized and wide frames.
A square face is widest along the jaw and forehead. Due to this shape being defined by a strong jawbone, glasses that sit high on the nose add length that flatters the face. Choose a dark and rounded frame.
A round face should look to angled frames to add extra definition and depth. Avoid small round frames. Full rim and semi-rimless are great styles to consider.
Heart shaped faces are widest at the forehead with a narrow chin and high cheekbones.
Consider frames slightly wider than your forehead to add balance to your facial features. Round or oval shaped eyeglasses tend to be most flattering for this face shape.
Diamond shaped faces are the rarest face shape and are characterized by full cheeks and narrow forehead and jaw line. The best look for this face shape is a rimless or oval frame. Another option would be to play up your features with fun and funky frames - like horn rim or cat eye frame.
While face shape is a good starting point, the best way to find you next favorite frame is simply by trying them on. Just like clothes, you might be surprised how different something can look once you try it on!
