How to choose the best eyeglasses for your face? Eyeglasses have evolved over time, gone are the days when a person with glasses was teased as ‘chashmish‘. 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. Rectangular frames or oversized glasses also suit this face shape. Unisex Eyeglasses from Titan Eyeplus has a huge range of trendy frames for everyone. You can go experimental with an oval shape face, check out for bold colors or chic styles.

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.

Square Face – 

With a well-defined jawline and strong features, square shape face people should go with soft or round glasses frames. Thin frames, semi-rimless or complete rimless frames are popular with the square face. Oval frames with sharp edges look good on the square face.

The best way to decide and select your correct size or shaped frame is to ask an expert. Optical experts not only advise the best fit but also help you in understanding your face shape. Even in online shopping, expert assistance can be used to select the best fit. Unisex eyeglasses allow you the liberty of going experimental.

Frames also explain your personality, choosing the right frame is hence becomes more important. So next time when you plan to get yourself a new glasses, check out best eyeglasses and various styles available.

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.
