How to wear oval frames

oval

A captivating style that can be dressed up or down, oval glasses are a very popular frame shape. With such a wide selection of oval frames available on our website, you can opt to be adventurous with a bold pair of oversized glasses or you can choose to be more demure by sporting a pair of understated, 90’s-inspired specs.

If you plan on escaping to a sunny getaway, a pair of oversized oval sunglasses – reminiscent of the styles worn by Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor – would add an instant touch of glam to your wardrobe as well.

What are the different styles of oval glasses?

Generally, oval frames boast softly curved and rounded lenses without any sharp angles or corners. These softer lines can take on various different shapes; while they often come in completely rounded shapes, you can also find oval frames available with a flatter browline or flatter lens bottom as well.

When browsing our collection of oval eyeglasses, you’ll find a myriad of options ranging from subtle semi-rimless metal styles to daring full-rimmed plastic frames with a bold cat eye. You’ll also find classic, lightweight rimless options as well.

Can I pull off oval glasses?

Oval glasses can work for just about anybody.

Because of the rounded nature of their overall shape, this particular style works wonderfully on square and triangle face shapes. The soft lines of oval specs help to juxtapose sharp facial features and angled jawlines. If you have a square or triangle face, opt for oval options with detailed wingtips to help balance your jawline.

Heart faces will find oval frames with a deep lens base the most flattering, as these styles will balance and complement your features. If you have a round face and like to make a statement with your eyewear choices, oval frames will provide a high-fashion look that will help you stand out in the crowd.

Oval eyeglasses will also look great on oval faces because they are the most versatile face shape to fit. If you have an oval face, you can dare to be a little adventurous with your frame choices when it comes to size, colour and texture.
