Ever wonder why some frame looks good on some people and yours doesn't seem to be the same(No miracle is involved)
Here are some techniques or factors you should consider while picking the right frame for your face
- Soft, round faces: Choose frames that have hard angles, like a square or rectangular frames. These tend to make the face look longer and break up the softness of the face. For very full face, you might consider horizontal rectangles, which make the face appear thinner.
- Square and rectangle face: Choose frames that balance the hard lines of the face, so look for round or oval frames. Choose thin frames to minimize the appearance of a very heavy jawline, to avoid adding more bulk to your face. The glasses should be slightly wider than your cheekbones to fit the face properly.
- Heart-shaped faces: Choose frames that are wider on the bottom or have some kind of detail on the lower half of the frames. Frame should be slightly wider than the forehead for a proper fit.
- Triangular faces: Choose frames that emphasize the top half of the frame, like half-rimmed glasses or cat-eye glasses, or two-toned frames with darker tops and lighter bottoms. Since triangular faces tend to have strong jaws, be sure that the frames are slightly wider than your jaw to balance it out.
- Oblong faces: Choose round or curved frames as they take away from the length of the face and emphasize the width. Frames with equal shape in the upper and lower rims help to break up the facial length.
• Oval faces: Can rock any frame type, lucky right?
But there is no hard and fast rule when it comes to frames selection. Ultimately, choose a frame that suits you.
