When shopping for glasses
, whether plastic or rimless eyeglass frames,
it’s important to choose
the right frame shape
for your face. No matter which frame shape you choose,
are an excellent choice. Titanium eyeglass frames are lightweight,
strong and hypoallergenic – making it the perfect option for people allergic to
certain metals. Once you’ve made a decision on the material of your glasses, be
it plastic, metal or titanium eyeglass frames,
you now need to choose
the right frame shape
for your face. Here’s a helpful guide to inform your
- Round face. Round faces look best with an angular frame shape. Rimless eyeglass
frames tend to have sharp angles and look especially good on a round face. Rectangular
rimless eyeglass frames will help a round shaped face appear longer and thinner.
As a rule, you should strive for face balance, so round glasses on a round face
are a big no-no.
- Oval face. If you have an oval shaped face, you’re in luck. You have the ability
to rock pretty much any frame shape you choose. Because your face is already
nicely balanced you can experiment with any number of frame shapes. At Theyedoctor.com
we recommend looking in to titanium eyeglass frames which will keep their shape
for years to come. People with oval faces often have smaller features, so your only
concern is making sure you don’t choose a style which overpowers your features.
- Square face. As with round faces, a square face requires balance. In order to soften
the sharp edges of a square face, we recommend a rounded frame in order to create
curves on the face. Rimless eyeglass frames are also a great choice for those with
square faces in order to add a little contrast to the face. Another popular choice
is cat eye frames, which can help lessen angles.
- Heart shaped face. A person with a heart shaped face has a wider forehead and a
narrow jaw line. Heart shaped faces tend to have a more difficult time finding the
perfect frame shape for their face, so you should have fun trying out a large
number of choices. When shopping for a heart shaped face, try lighter colored round
frames, which can lessen the look of a wide forehead, or frames that are wider at
the bottom in order to offset a narrow jaw line.
No matter what your face shape, you should always choose the frame shape you feel
most comfortable with. The more confident you are with your eyeglasses the better
you’ll look! At Theyedoctor.com we have the perfect glasses for any face, at a fraction
of the price you’d spend anywhere else!
