Your Guide to Perfect Eyewear

The Glasses Lady, here with some eyewear wisdom to share!

Today, we're diving deep into the world of face shapes and how they can make all the difference in finding the perfect frames for you. Have you ever tried on a pair of glasses that just didn’t quite look right? Don't worry; you're not alone! Understanding your face shape is the key to unlocking eyewear magic that complements your features and enhances your style. Let’s start by breaking down the different face shapes and discovering which frames work best for each:


Round Faces:

If your face is softly rounded with equal width and length, angular frames like square or rectangular shapes can add definition and balance.

Oval Faces:

Lucky you! Oval faces can rock almost any frame style. Experiment with bold shapes or classic aviators for a versatile look.

Square Faces:

With strong jawlines and equally wide cheekbones and forehead, go for round or oval frames to soften your features and add a touch of elegance.

Heart-Shaped Faces:

Frames that are wider at the top and narrower at the bottom, such as cat-eye or butterfly shapes, beautifully complement heart-shaped faces by balancing the forehead and chin.

Diamond Faces:

Characterised by high cheekbones and a narrower forehead and jawline, try frames with gentle curves like oval styles for a harmonious look.

Now that you've decoded your face shape Here are some exclusive styling tips to elevate your eyewear game:

Triangle Face Shape

A triangle face shape is characterised by a wider jawline and narrower forehead. Balance the proportions by choosing frames that add width to the upper part of your face. Cat-eye, aviator, rectangular, or semi-rimless frames with detailing on the top can draw attention upward and create a more balanced look. Avoid frames with heavy bottoms or exaggerated shapes that emphasise your jawline.

Rectangle Face Shape

A rectangle face shape, also known as oblong, is longer than it is wide with straight cheek lines and a slightly squared-off jawline. Frames that add width and break up the length of the face work best. Opt for round, oval, or cat-eye frames to soften angles and create balance. Avoid narrow or small frames that can elongate the face further.

It's important to note that while these guidelines can assist you in narrowing down your choices, your personal style and preferences are crucial factors in selecting the perfect frames. Consider seeking assistance from an Eyewear Stylist who can collaborate with you in trying out various styles.

This process can be enjoyable and rewarding as you explore eyewear that not only improves your vision but also complements your distinctive features and reflects your personality giving you confidence and inspiration to take on the world.  


In the meantime, here are some tips to elevate your eyewear game.

Embrace Contrast: Opt for frames that contrast your face shape to create visual interest and highlight your unique features.


Consider Proportions: Pay attention to the size of your frames in relation to your face. Oversized frames can make a statement, while smaller frames offer a subtle, refined look.


Play with Colours: Have fun with different frame colours that complement your skin tone and hair colour, adding a pop of personality to your eyewear collection.


Alternatively: seek advice from colour wizards like Your Colours
