When choosing an eyeglass frame you should choose a frame by size, shape and color.
Also, while most faces are a combination of shapes and angles, there are six basic face shapes.
Square face shape, be sure to avoid glasses with hard lines that might make your face look boxy.
Heart-shaped faces, those with a chin much thinner than their forehead, need to find shapes that balance the width of their face.
Oval faces are the luckiest, as they can pull off almost any style. You may want to balance the curve of your face, so choose square, rectangle glasses to balance your face.
Oblong, or long face shapes, will see much more length than width. Choose frames that are larger, to break up the length of your face.
Round faces will want to choose frames that add angles, are structured and slim. Lenses that are wider than they are deep, as well as those with dark frames help define a round face.
Once you have determined if you are “warm” or “cool,” then you can find the eyeglass frame colors that will suit you the best. Eye wear color should complement personal coloring. Some examples of frame colors best for warm coloring are: camel, khaki, gold, copper, peach, orange, coral, off-white, fire-engine red, warm blue and blond tortoise.
For cool coloring, the best eyeglass frame hues are black, silver, rose-brown, blue-gray, plum, magenta, pink, jade, blue and amber (darker) tortoise.
You may be tempted to choose a frame color that “goes with everything.” But consider instead a color that truly flatters you.
