A great place to start is with the shape of your face. Is your face more square or round? Oval or triangular? Take a look at the examples below and the types of glasses you may want to consider depending on your face shape.

Round Face

Men and women whose foreheads, cheeks and chins are a similar length and width should consider frames with hard angles. Square or rectangular frames can make the face look longer and break up the soft cheekbones and jawline.

Oval Face

People with oval faces are fortunate that most any glasses will work well for them. Their narrow forehead and chin, plus wide cheekbones are the perfect shape for any glasses. Instead of starting their search with a particular shape, they can start by considering their personal style and fashion preference.

Heart – Shaped Face

Since people with heart-shaped faces have a wider forehead and narrow chin, they may want to consider frames that are wider at the bottom so the style balances well with their face. Perhaps consider a frame with embellishments on the bottom half of the frames.

Rectangular Face

Rectangular faces have wide and broad foreheads along with a strong jaw line. People with these features look especially nice in round or oval frames with thin frames. Consider avoiding broad, thick frames.

Diamond Face

A diamond-shaped face means the person has a narrow forehead and chin along with wide cheekbones and full cheeks. Diamond faces look fantastic in horn-rimmed glasses as well as rectangular or oval frames that contrast with the face shape

Square Face

A square face means that the forehead and chin are both broad and the jawline tends to be angular. Square faces look nice in frames that balance the prominent lines of the face with soft angles. Consider a round or oval frame with a thin, delicate shape.
