Five simple, yet important things to consider when buying eyewear.
Choose an eyewear (sunglass/eyeglass) that complements your facial pattern/shape
An important aspect to keep in mind while choosing frames for sunglasses or eyeglasses is your face structure. The frame style should complement your facial features and not just the outfits. Check out our recommendations for eyewear for certain face shapes.
Oval Face Shape
An oval face is proportionally balanced, with a slightly curved jawline that is somewhat narrower than the forehead, allowing for the most flexibility in frame options. While most styles look good on oval faces, these frames will add structure to the softer oval shape.
Round Face Shape
A round face is typically as wide as it is long and lacking prominent cheekbones. For women, large and bold styles draw attention to the eyes and make the face appear smaller, while rectangle and square frames offset roundness for men, creating a more masculine appearance.
Square Face Shape
A square face is typically anchored by a wide, angular jawline and a similarly broad forehead. For women, these frames complement the face shape while adding softness. For men, it’s about adding balance and structure.
Diamond Face Shape
A diamond face combines an angular jawline and prominent cheekbones with a narrower forehead. For women, round and oval frames add softness to angular features, while cat-eye frames can add volume around narrow cheekbones. Men might opt for round or browline frames to balance facial features.
Pear Face Shape
A pear face shape is defined by a broader jawline and chin, with a narrower forehead and less prominent cheekbones. Browline frames bring more balance to a narrow forehead, but anyone can opt for the universally flattering aviator.
Heart Face Shape
A heart face typically has a broader forehead and prominent cheekbones paired with a narrower chin. Round frames can make the more angular heart shape appear softer, while rectangle frames add balance.
