Face Shape Guide

find YOUR PERFECT GLASSES ACCORDING TO YOUR FACE SHAPE

When it comes to finding the perfect fitting glasses, a lot depends on your individual face shape. Different frame styles can either play up or play down your unique facial contours, so learning what works best for you is key. Whether your face is round, square, heart, oval or triangle, this face shape guide for glasses highlights what you should and shouldn't focus on when it comes to shopping for the perfect glasses. If you're unsure of your actual face shape, this guide also illustrates the main differences between the more common shapes.

NOTE: IF YOU CANT DECIDE YET, SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE DETAILS

OVAL

An oval face is the most versatile to fit, with slightly wider cheekbones and a gentle narrowing at the forehead and jaw.

PERFECT GLASSES

  • Square and rectangular frames are good as they add contrast to the round curves of your face.
  • Any kind of frame tends to work well with an oval shape but be sure to avoid frames that are too big or too small that will throw off the balance of your face.

ROUND

A round face has softer angles with slighter wider cheekbones and an equally wide forehead and jaw.

PERFECT GLASSES

  • Just like oval shaped faces, square and rectangular framed glasses are good to show off the strong angles.
  • Round shaped faces look great with frames that have a light upsweep at the corners of the frames to bring attention to your eyes.
  • Try to avoid glasses that are more rounded.

SQUARE

A square face has more angular lines with equally wide cheekbones, forehead and jaw.

PERFECT GLASSES

  • The best style of frames to use are soft oval or round shaped frames to help contrast the lines of a square face.
  • You want to choose a frame that compliments your brow line with shape and color.
  • Avoid square and rectangular frames.

HEART

A heart face is widest at the forehead and gradually narrows through to the jaw.

PERFECT GLASSES

  • You will want to minimize the width at the top of the face by choosing frames that widen at the bottom. Light frames, like rimless or wireframes make for a good match.
  • Best shapes to wear are round, square, or rounded squares.
  • Avoid thick frames.

TRIANGLE

Triangle face is widest at the jaw and gradually narrows through to the forehead.

PERFECT GLASSES

  • Stylish and accented eyeglasses are the best!
  • Try frames with a darker upper rim that are wide and stretch across the widest portion of your face.
  • Avoid thin rimmed frames, or rimless.

OBLONG

AN OBLONG FACE IS A FACE THAT IS LONGER THAN IT IS WIDE, AND VERY SYMMETRICAL.

PERFECT GLASSES

  • Choose a frame that will break up the length of your face.
  • Geometric frames are a good choice as they will break up the long lines of your face.
  • Dark frames that add angles are also a good way to go.
  • Avoid smaller frames that accentuate face length.
