Are you looking for the perfect pair of glasses for your face shape? Whether you have a round oval or square shaped face, there’s a pair out there made just for you! Here’s a guide to help you find the perfect frame according to your face shape.
What is my face shape?
With so many glasses to choose from, knowing what suits you best can really help in bringing out your unique facial contours. In order to choose properly, you first need to identify your facial features. There are 5 main categories of face shapes:

Glasses for all kinds of shapes
Here’s the truth about face shapes: almost nobody is a perfect heart, circle, square, or any other narrowly defined category. Most faces are a combination of a few different shapes: rounded chins and tall foreheads, angular features and tapered jaws, and so on.
Trying to pick just one stock image out of a lineup can feel impossible. What you want is the shape that looks the most like yours — even if your chin is a little more pointed than the “typical” oval, or your forehead a little wider than the “usual” inverted triangle. These are all just guidelines to help you determine how to balance and complement your features, not unbreakable rules.
Once you’ve recognized your face shape, you can find which frame shape will bring a natural balance to your face. This guide will help identify the type of glasses you should look at when browsing online or in store.
SHOP BY FACE SHAPE
People with oval faces fit with most frame shapes. With a narrower forehead and slightly narrow chin, oval is considered the most universal face shape — so have fun with the latest trends because most will work for you. Whether you like cat eyes frames, oval or rectangular frames, you can just try them on and find glasses that look good on you and make you happy!
Triangular faces are widest on the bottom, narrowest on top so you want to find a mirror-opposite frame: bold on top, light on the bottom. With a mix of round and angular shapes, D-frames, aviator or cat eyes frames will particularly fit triangular faces.
Square faces often have bold, angular features and cut a clean, straight line from the forehead to the jaw. Rounded and thinner frames that are slightly wider on the side will have a harmonious and natural look on square faces.
Round faces are all soft curves and smooth lines with a face that is roughly the same width from the jaw up through to the brow. They look great in bold, angular glasses with clean lines. Glasses for round faces generally have cat eyes, rectangular or D-frame.
Heart shape faces are widest at the brow, narrowing down through to the chin with high cheekbones. They look great in winged-out frames that jut out slightly wider than their forehead and rounded bases to balance and complement their features. Heart face particularly fit D-frames, rectangular and oval frames.
Note that narrow faces that are heart-shaped will look great with wider frames!
