Face Shape Guide

Find out how to choose the best glasses to suit your face shape!

No matter what your face shape is, there’s a flattering style for you. Most of our frames are fully customizable, so you can get the perfect fit.

Best glasses for oval face

You have a balanced combination of features with a rounded forehead and pointed chin. This means you can wear pretty much any shape because your facial features aren’t super prominent.

To make sure you don’t end up with overly large frames that overpower your face, as a rule of thumb, try opting for styles that do not sit broader than the widest part of your face.

Glasses for heart-shaped face

Heart-shaped faces are also known as inverted triangles or open hearts. They tend to be wider at the forehead and narrow toward the chin.

If you want to balance out the proportions of a heart-shaped face, try choosing frames that have a strong brow-line or lightweight frames in colours that compliment your skin tone. Designed to match the unique features of heart-shaped faces, these glasses give you an updated look that flatters your face shape.

Best glasses for round face

Round-faced individuals have broader, more rounded features with an oval-shaped face. This makes their face seem wider than it is tall and gives them a youthful appearance.

To create balance in a round face, choose frames that are slightly wider than they are deep to elongate the face. Glasses that suit round faces would be a soft angular frame to make a round face appear thinner and longer.

Glasses for square face shape

Square-shaped faces are characterized by an angular jaw and high cheekbones.

You’ve got a truly stylish face—lineless, broad, and chiselled. You can wear almost any frame shape, but the key is to stick with styles that are slim and curved that will help you make the most of your jawline. Slim and angular lines are ideal for keeping your look refined and polished.
