Which Glasses Best Suit My Face Shape?
It's a question we get asked a lot, so on this page we're going to explore which glasses best suit your face shape and which style you should go for. We've all been there, we see the perfect pair of glasses on the display but when we try them on, they're just not right! Well, never fear because here at Reglaze Specs we have the answers to all your questions!
Oval face shape
An oval face shape is considered to be great for glasses because of its balanced features.
To maintain the natural look of an oval face shape, aim for spectacle frames that are as wide as (or wider than) the broadest part of the face.
Walnut-shaped frames that are not too deep or narrow are a very good choice.
A heart-shaped face has a wide top third and a narrow bottom third. (Sometimes this is called a base-up triangle face shape.)
To reduce the apparent width of the top of the face, choose frame shapes that are wider at the bottom.
Thin, light-coloured frames and rimless frames that have a light, airy appearance also are good choices.
Circle face shape
A round face shape has curved lines with the width and length in the same proportions and no sharp angles.
To make a round face appear thinner and longer, try angular narrow spectacle frames to lengthen the face.
Frames with a clear bridge and rectangular frames that are wider than they are deep also can be good choices.
Oblong face shape
An oblong face shape is longer than it is wide and has a long, straight cheek line.
To make an oblong face appear shorter and more balanced, try frames that have more depth than width.
Frames with decorative or contrasting temples also add width to the face.
Square face shape
A square face shape has a strong jaw and a broad forehead, and the width and length of the face have roughly the same proportions.
To make a square face look longer and soften its angles, try narrow frame styles, frames that have more width than depth, and narrow ovals.
