Face Shapes

Not sure what frames are right for your face? Hey, that’s why we’re here! Read all of our helpful tips on what frames are best suited for all face shapes. Opposites Attract: Play against facial contours, so if you have angular features such as prominent cheekbones and jawline, get curvaceous with rounder frame shapes. This diverts attention away from parts of your face that may be a little too eye-catching—literally!

Oval-Shaped Face
Features: Oval faces are well balanced, with a gently curved jawline that is slightly narrower than the forehead. Cheekbones are generally high and face length is approximately 1.5 times the width. Oval is a versatile face shape with features that can work with a variety of frames.

Best Bet: Top-Heavy Frames and Butterfly Shapes
Square and rectangular frames add contrast to the curved lines of the oval face. Other shapes are fair game as well, just be sure to keep scale in mind. Ovals biggest downfall is a frame that is too small or too large, throwing off the natural balance of the face.

Square-Shaped Face
Features: Characterized by a broad forehead, strong horizontal jawline and square chin, square faces are generally proportional in width and length. The key for squares is to find frames that allow their architectural features to shine.

Best Bet: Ovals and Rounded Rectangles
Try softer oval or round shapes to contrast the straight lines of the square face. For rectangular frames, choose those with softened edges and avoid sharp corners. Choose frames that emphasize the browline with shape or color to balance out the jawline.

Round-Shaped Face
Features: Round faces are all about curves. With fuller cheeks, wide forehead and a rounded chin, round faces are usually proportional in width and length.

Best Bet: Rectangular Frames and Contrast Bridges
Round faces are the perfect showcase for strong angular shapes, just look for frames with lenses that are wider than they are deep. Rounds also play well with frames that have a slight upsweep at the corners to show off those great cheeks and brings focus to the eyes.

Heart-Shaped Face
Features: Heart shape faces feature a broad forehead that tapers to a small chin. Cheekbones are generally high and angled following the contour of the face. The trick for heart shapes is to find shapes that balance the varying widths of their face.

Best Bet: Aviators and Rimless Styles
Heart shape faces feature a broad forehead that tapers to a small chin. Cheekbones are generally high and angled following the contour of the face. The trick for heart shapes is to find shapes that balance the varying widths of their face.
