How to Choose Frames to Match Facial Features

  • By:Dr. Katie Dugan

Wearing glasses not only helps to improve your vision, but the right pair of frames can also be used as a fashion statement. If you wear glasses, it is essential that you consider the way the frames look on your face. There’s no question this accessory can have an impact on your appearance, which means that you can take advantage of this knowledge to maximize your style.

Balance Out Your Face Shape

When you are choosing frames, it is important to find a design that is flattering by balancing out the shape of your face. For example, if you have a round face and wear round glasses, then it will only emphasize the roundness. But a rectangular shape can balance the overall appearance. On the other hand, a person with a square face can wear round frames to soften the angles.

Size of the Frames

In addition to the shape of your face, you also need to consider how the size fits your facial features. Even if you choose the right shape for the frames, they won’t be flattering if the glasses are too large or too small. If you have a small face, then it’s best to stick with small frames so your features aren’t overwhelmed by the glasses.

Current Styles

Choosing a pair of glasses is always a good way to update your style. What is the best way to infuse personality and flair into your outfit? Accessories are a great option! You will find a variety of frames that include various colors, materials, and patterns. Look at some of the latest magazines and fashion trends to find frames that will keep you up-to-date with your appearance. Some people like having multiple pairs of glasses to give them options to match the outfit of the day.
