Now the glasses are in-thing and come in various beautiful shapes and styles. I have had an eyesight correction surgery a decade back, but with constant use of technology got my reading glasses back. However, this time I chose some beautiful glasses based on my face shape.

Various styles and designs make it tough to pick the right pair of eyeglasses. Here is a simple face shape guide to understand the right match and choose the best glasses for your face shape.

Oval Face – 

Most of the frames fit an oval-shaped face. With vertically symmetrical facial characteristics, you can pick any style in the eyeglasses frames.

Round Face –

The first rule for round shaped face is to stay away from short and round frames. With fuller cheeks, broad jawline an angular frame adds some drama and go perfectly well with round face. Rectangular or thin frames also suit a round face.

Triangular Face – Glasses for your face

Triangular face means you have a broad forehead with a narrow chin. Full frames in light colors or rimless glasses suit you the best, especially when they are narrow and pointed on the temples. The idea is not to make a narrow jawline look sharper or a wide forehead wider with rectangular frames. Aviators suits this face shape the most.

Long Face – 

Square, oversized glasses, wraparounds, are few styles which go perfectly well with long shaped faces. Long face means you have extended jawline hence avoid rectangular frames. An addition of color will bring depth to frames and give contrast to face making it look shorter.

  1. Very helpful post, Dipika! I don’t have glasses now. But in Gujarati, it is said that at 42 you get glasses – it is called – betala which actually means the glasses you get at 42 for short sightedness. I will too get that one day as age advances. Will consult your post definitely to check what goes best with my face structure.

  2. Thanks for this Dipika… I always was under the impression that all sort of frames suited an oval face person… But this was helpful.. Will keep in mind when buying my next pair
