How to choose glasses that suit the shape of your face


Triangle

A triangle shaped face has a wider forehead, which tapers down towards a rounded, narrow chin. 

Frames that are wider at the bottom will help to emphasise the bottom of the face and make the overall shape of the face look more balanced. Avoid frames with detailing or bright colours around the top.  

Square 

A square shaped face has a strong jaw and wide forehead. The width and length of the face are roughly equal.

Round and oval frames will help to emphasise the eyes, soften the jawline and lengthen the face. Narrow frames that are wider than they are tall may help to achieve this. Avoid square and angular frames. 

Oval

The length of an oval shaped face is generally around double the width. It has a rounded forehead and chin. It may have a more prominent chin or cheekbones, and may be wider at the forehead. The face generally tapers towards the chin. 

Frames that are around the same width as the widest part of the face will help to preserve the natural balance in the shape of the face. Most styles of glasses suit an oval shaped face.

Inverted Triangle

An inverted triangle shaped face has a narrow forehead, wider cheekbones and a wider chin.

To draw attention to the eyes and help make the narrower forehead seem wider and therefore balance the shape of the face, try frames with a half rim or dramatic cat eye. Frames with detailing or bold colours at the top of the frames may also create this effect.

Round 

A round shaped face is roughly equal in width and length. It is usually widest at the cheeks, has a rounded chin and the corners of the jaw are not pronounced. There are no angles so there is little definition.

Angular, narrow frame shapes will help to make the face look longer. A clear or contrasting bridge will help to emphasise the eyes. Avoid round or oval shaped frames.  

Diamond

A diamond shaped face has a narrow forehead, a narrow chin and wide cheekbones. It tends to be fairly angular. 

Frames that draw attention to the eyes suit diamond shaped faces. These include: oversized frames; frames with detailing or distinctive brow lines; rimless frames; oval or cat eye shaped frames.

Long

An oblong shaped face is very long and narrow. The face tapers down towards a more angular chin. A rectangle shaped face is longer than it is wide. It has a strong jaw and may have a longer nose. 

Tall or rounded frames will help to balance out the face as they take up more room. Frames with thick arms or detailing at the temples emphasise the sides of the face at make it look wider. Frames with rounded edges or curved lines will help to soften an angular face. Avoid rectangle or oval shaped frames.

Heart

A heart shaped face is usually widest at the brow and then tapers towards the chin. It may have high cheekbones and a prominent forehead. The chin tends to be very narrow. 

Frames that are wider at the bottom will help to emphasise the bottom of the face and make the overall shape look more balanced. Aviators are a good example. Alternatively, rimless frames help to prevent the face from looking too top heavy.
