Eye glasses or shades are not only necessities these days but also aids to your style quotient and swag. These little devils are our saviors from the workplace to the moment we step out in the sun. But most of us are unaware of the right kind of frames according to our face types which not only mess up with the look but also makes it uncomfortable to wear. Here you need to read this before you head to the ophthalmologist and buy the pair of glasses for you. It will not only save you the hassle but also enough time to for the cup of coffee once your shopping is done.
Buying the frames do not depend upon hit and trial game but on your awareness about shape of your face. Generally we categories all of us into four face sizes.
Round shaped faces are characterized by full cheeks,full length and breadth with rounded chin.
Square faces have prominent jawline, angular features and wide forehead.
Oval faces are all about balanced features like high cheekbones,narrower chin than the forehead.
Heart shaped faces have broad forehead with pointed and narrow chin. They also have high cheekbones.
Different face shapes simply mean that no single frame type would look good on all the face types. The one frame that is really in trend and looks good on your friend might look shabby and tacky on you. So you need to keep a few tips in your mind.
- The shape of the frame should contrast shape of your face. Like angular glasses for round faces.
- The optical glass frames should be in proportion with rest of your face but it is exactly the opposite when you buy sun glasses.
- The color of the frames are completely your choice but yes the contrasting color make a statement and highlights.
Next you should consider your face shape while picking up the frames for you.
Round shape Faces
You should opt for rectangular frames and contrast bridges which would elongate the face and contrasting bridges would help eyes looking apart. Cat eye frames also look good on people with round faces.
Square shape Faces
Narrower ovals and rectangular frames with rounded edges provide soft looks to their strong jaw lines and narrow the broad forehead. Cat eye frames are also good option.
Oval shape Faces
Oval faces should opt for top heavy frames which are thicker on the top than at the bottom or butterfly shapes which wings up and out slightly at the top which accentuate the features of the oval faces.
Heart shape faces
Aviators or rimless styles are best for the heart shaped faces which balances the broader forehead and narrow jawline.
