Determine your face shape
There are five main face shapes: square, round, triangle, heart, and oval. Each face shape is named after the shape it looks most like:
- Square face shapes have an equally wide forehead, jaw, and cheekbones.
- Round face shapes have an equally wide forehead and jaw, with wider cheekbones.
- Triangle face shapes are wider at the jaw while getting smaller and smaller up toward the forehead.
- Heart face shapes are widest at the forehead and gradually become more narrow toward the jaw.
- Oval face shapes have a narrow forehead, narrow jaw, and slightly wider cheekbones.
Frame shapes that look best with your features
Square face shapes have angular features, so the best frame shape for your face is something that softens your facial structure. Round shaped glasses with thin frames will look best on this face shape.
Round face shapes have soft angles so you’re able to really play around with dramatic and angled glasses. Rectangular shaped glasses with thick frames in bold colors and angles will look best on this face shape.
Triangle face shapes are heavier at the bottom of the face, so the best glasses for this face shape will have a dramatic top portion and a thinner bottom portion. Glasses shaped like a cat eye will draw attention to the upper portion of your face and will suit you best.
Heart face shapes are widest at the forehead, therefore a frame with detailing at the bottom of the glasses will help to balance out your face and provide symmetry. Wayfarer glasses are a great example.
Oval face shapes are the most versatile and look great in just about any frame shape. Opt for bold shapes, sizes, colors, and details!
