Wondering which frames best fit your face shape? Here’s our handy guide to help you look your very best and flatter your natural features.
Caution: Before you select frames based on the guidelines below, know this: what’s most important is how your heart feels inside when you try on your frames, regardless of rules or guidelines. Sometimes rules are meant to be broken. So you…be you. Try on frames virtually, or use our free in-home try-on program - it’s totally up to you!
Chances are good you have one of the following face shapes: heart, round, square, or oval. By looking at a mirror and taking a close look at your facial features, you can find out which one matches you. Want to get crazy? Try outlining your reflection in the mirror (we recommend something that easily washes off like a dry erase marker, lipstick, your bff’s deodorant) and then carefully step away to examine the shape.
We heart heart-shaped faces. A heart-shaped face is usually widest at the forehead with a narrower chin and high cheekbones. Go with round or oval eyeglass and avoid bottom-heavy frames, or anything oversized. Frames that are slightly wider than your forehead can add even more attractiveness to your wonderfully heart-shaped features. You may not be a celebrity, but you do share a face shape with Halle Berry, Zooey Deschanel, Scarlett Johansson.
So many great glasses shapes go well with round faces, but we recommend something with angles. With a proportion that’s relatively equal in width and length (think Hayden Panettiere, Kate Bosworth, Emma’s Straight) your face will thank you if you pick sharp-angled frames to add a little extra definition and depth. Avoid smalls and rounds. Pro tip: angular frames and wider frames can help add length to your face and help you look ah-mazing.
Widest along the jaw and forehead, a square face can be defined by a strong jawline. Did you know that Rihanna, Emily Deschanel, Lucy Liu and Brad Pitt all have amazing square faces? Go with glasses that sit high on your nose to add flattering length. Something rounded, rather than super angular, will look oh-so nice. Round eyeglass will help soften as well as add some contrast to your amazing angular features.
Lucky! So many glasses shapes look great on an oval face. Your long(ish), rounded face shape allows you to pull off almost any style — especially oversized and wide frames. Rectangular, square, wayfarer — so many fun possibilities. Fun fact: Kate Middleton, Jennifer Connelly and even Oprah are blessed with an oval face.
