Square-shaped faces

Square-shaped faces are typically proportional in length and width and characterized by a strong jaw line, square chin and broad, deep forehead. Round or oval eyeglasses are recommended to soften and add contrast to angular face shapes.

Tips for choosing frames:

  • Round frames are perfect for creating curves and softening square or angular faces
  • Cat-eye frames provide interesting curve and contour to square faces
  • Gently curved oval frames help minimize angles and lengthen a square face
  • Frames should be more horizontal than vertical
  • Subtle rimless frames with soft edges add contrast and visual interest to a strong, square face

Heart-shaped faces

Heart-shaped faces are characterized by wide foreheads, narrower jaw lines, high cheekbones and a narrow chin.

Tips for choosing frames:

  • Butterfly or cat-eye styles are great for balancing a heart-shaped face
  • Round frames in lighter colors balance and soften a wide forehead
  • Frames that are wider at the bottom than the top help offset the narrow chin
  • Cat-eye frames balance a narrower jaw line
  • Eyeglasses with low temples add balance

Round shaped faces

Round shaped faces have equal width and length, are characterized by soft curves and are best suited by angular frames.

Tips for choosing frames:

  • Angular frames with rectangular or geometric shapes create balance and add definition to a round face
  • Rectangular styles make a round face look slimmer
  • Frames that are more horizontal than they are vertical make round faces appear longer and thinner
  • Glasses with high or mid-height temples help lengthen a round face
  • Round frames are perfect for creating curves and softening square or angular faces

Oval-shaped faces

Oval-shaped faces are the easiest to fit and are characterized by balanced proportions, a narrow forehead and jaw line, a chin slightly narrower than the forehead, and usually high cheekbones. Oval-shapes faces can typically wear any frame shape.

Tips for choosing frames:

  • An oval-shaped face can wear practically any frame, so experiment with a variety of frame shapes to find the perfect look
  • You might want to start with rectangular or butterfly frames
  • People with oval faces often have smaller features, so make sure your frames are in proportion and don’t overpower your face
