Selecting Right Glasses For Your Face Shape

Rectangular Face


Rectangular faces have a deeper forehead, long nose, and stronger jawline.

Now if you are having this you have to soften your face the go for a thinner frame and you can also go for super sleek and masculine frames avoiding too heavy on eyes which are basically of softer structure.

Use Wayfarer, Geometric, Oval, Round, Browline frames for your Rectangle face shape that gives a great look.


Round Face


Rounder faces look fairly short with the wider forehead, full cheeks, rounded chin with a soft jawline.

Now with this face shape, we need to add angle and structure to give a perfect look, now you go bold by textured frames avoiding round and oversized frames.

Use Rectangular and Square shaped frames by avoiding Round and Oval-shaped frames which reduce the depth of face. And also you can go for Aviators.


Square Face


The square face has a width and length that is proportionate, and you’ve got a broad forehead and a strong jawline.

To create a little more length in the face and to offset your strong features, go for narrower styles that are still angular in shape to complement your face.

Use Wayfarer, Oval, Round, Browline frames for your Square face shape that gives a great look.

Diamond Face

The diamond face has a wider forehead and hairline balanced on the opposite end by a narrow and sometimes pointy chin. The cheekbones are the widest point which tends to be prominent.

There are a lot of options for this face shape that has both angular and curvy features.

Use Square shaped, Wayfarer, Aviators, Geometric, Round frames for your Diamond face shape that gives great look.

Heart Face


The heart-shaped faces will be widest at the forehead, gently narrowing down towards the chin with soft features.

Now it’s all about balance, use softer and rounder glasses which softens across cheekbones detailing at the top of frames.

Use Rectangle-shaped, Geometric, Aviators frames for your Heart face shape that gives a great look.


Rhombus Face


The rhombus face is the same as the diamond face but the only difference is the rhombus face has a narrow forehead compared to diamond face shape.

For this there are few options to choose as it’s a rare face shape, you can go for round glasses than structured or angular frames.

Highlight Your Frames By Your Eyes

Consideration of face shape, skin tone, and hair color is crucial for choosing the best glasses. But eye color is also a factor that adds beauty and provides a complement to your attire which unfortunately is overlooked.

Brown Eyes

Brown eyes leave the wearer a lot of room for creativity. While most people with brown eyes choose warm, earthy colors to complement their eye color.

There is also room for creativity with brown eyes. Warm tones like sepia or brandy compliment brown eyes.

Blue Eyes

Blue eyes pair best with blue and grey glasses. When choosing glasses to accentuate blue colors in your eyes, go for blue shades.

Muted tortoise, tan, or brindle frames draw attention to brighter blue irises.

Green Eyes

People with green eyes should go in unusual colors. Glasses that complement green eyes come in warm earth or gold tones, like caramel or tortoise.

But those looking for a more eccentric accessory might want to opt for brighter colors.

Grey Eyes

It’s very fun to choose glasses for grey eyes, as it’s so rare to see. Rich colors such as true black, midnight blue, deep purple, and burgundy make grey eyes stand out in the crowd.

Hazel Eyes

Hazel eyes include green, brown, and gold colors, and hazel is one of the most unusual eye colors. The presence of gold undertones in the irises.

To draw out the gold flecks in your hazel eyes, try frames in gold or caramel colors. And the colors which are close to earth like green, brown and muted tans.
