Decades ago, some people used to dread getting glasses. But today, there are so many fun and cool glasses shapes and frames that getting glasses is actually kind of exciting!

A great pair of glasses can transform your look, but it’s important that you pick out a pair of glasses whose frames compliment the shape of your face. 

If you’re ready to pick out a pair of glasses, here’s how to pick out the best frames for your face shape.

Heart or round-shape faces

Because rounder faces have such softness to them, if you have a round or heart-shaped face, you should be looking for more structured and geometric frames. More retro options, like cat-eye and wayfarer frames, would be a great choice. 

Square or rectangular faces

Because your face is already more angular when you have a square or rectangle-shaped face, you’ll want to look for glasses with more rounded frames. I’m not saying you have to go out and buy a pair of Harry Potter glasses, but frames that are more rounded out will help soften a more angular face.

Oval shaped faces

People with oval-shaped faces are lucky because they can often pull off a lot of different types of frames, as their face shape is often more even. Some have said that more square and rectangular-shaped frames compliment oval faces best, but those with oval faces can also rock other kinds of frames like aviator or cat-eyes.
