How to Choose the Best Frames for Your Face Shape

May 1, 2024

Are you in the market for a new pair of glasses but feeling overwhelmed by all the options out there? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Choosing the right frames for your face shape can make a world of difference in how your glasses look on you. At Advanced Vision Care and Cedar Hill Eye Care, we offer a wide range of designer eyeglasses in Mansfield, DeSoto, Fort Worth, and Cedar Hill. We’re sharing some tips to help you choose the best frames for your face shape! 

Determine your face shape 

The first step in finding the perfect frames for your face shape is determining what that shape actually is. There are generally six main face shapes: round, oval, square, heart, diamond, and triangle. Once you have identified your face shape, you can start looking at frames that will complement it. We’ll describe each face shape below to help you find the shape that most closely resembles yours.  

Round face shape 

Round faces have soft curves and few angles. For this face shape, angular or geometric frames are your best bet. Rectangular or square frames will add some definition to your features and create balance. 

Square face shape 

Square faces are characterized by strong jawlines and wide cheekbones and foreheads. To soften the sharp angles of a square face, opt for round or oval frames. These styles will help add some curves to your facial structure.  

Oval face shape 

If you have an oval face shape, lucky you! Oval faces are considered the most versatile as almost any frame style will suit this balanced face shape. Experiment with different shapes like aviators or cat-eye frames to showcase your features. 

Heart-shaped face 

Heart-shaped faces have wider foreheads that taper down into a narrower chin. To enhance this face shape, select bottom-heavy frames like aviators or cat-eye styles. These designs will draw attention downward and balance out the upper half of your face.  

Diamond-shaped face 

Diamond faces feature narrow foreheads and chins with broad cheekbones in between. To highlight these unique proportions, consider rimless or oval frames that won’t overwhelm your features. 

Triangle face shape 

Triangle faces are known for having a wider jawline than forehead. Frames that draw attention upwards towards the eyes can help balance out this shape. Try semi-rimless or butterfly-shaped frames to accentuate your upper half. 

Choosing the best frames for your face shape doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s all about finding styles that enhance your natural features and express your personality! With leading brands like Ray-Ban, Gucci, Versace, Tom Ford, Flexon, and Dolce & Gabbana available at Advanced Vision Care and Cedar Hill Eye Care, you’ll have plenty of choices to flatter your face shape.
