Staff at 360 Eyecare – Metro can help you choose the right frame for your face shape. Here are some loose guidelines that may help you know what type of frame is best for your face shape.
Round Face: Round faces are perfect for strong angular shapes. We suggest paying attention to the width of the lenses within these frames and ensuring there is enough width rather than depth. Round faces also play well with frames that have a slight upsweep at the corners to show off the cheeks and bring the focus back to the eyes.
Oval Face: 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 the scale of lens to frame in mind. Oval shape faces could face a challenge when the frame is too small or too large; as it could throw off the natural balance of the face. Here at Metro Eye Care we will take the time to ensure your natural face shape can find the perfect match to your taste and the right style.
Square Face: Try softer oval or round shapes to contrast the straight lines of the square face lines. For rectangular frames, choose those with softened edges and avoid sharp corners. Frames that emphasize the eyebrow line we find are the most complimenting.
Heart Face: 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 the balance in varying widths of the face. Oval and rectangular shapes are best for bringing out your eyes.
Rectangular Face: Go for frames with a strong or accented brow line that give a strong horizontal element. Frames with a bit of depth in the lenses will balance the length of the face. Shapes with rounded edges and curved lines will soften the angularity of the rectangular face shape. Stay away from small, narrow lenses as those will exaggerate the length of the face shape.
Remember along with the shape of the chick-bones we at 360 Eyecare – Metro also consider other elements of your face that play an important role in choosing comfortable good looking frames.
