Frame For Your Face Type

24 Aug

Frames… If chosen correctly, spectacle frames or sunglasses frames can really add to the wearer’s personality, and go beyond the utilitarian purposes they serve. But to get one’s spectacle or dark-glasses frames to become an extension of one’s personality and serve as a fashion accessory, one needs to pick the right frame, for one’s face type. How does one do that? 

There are seven basic face types, and here is how to pick, for each of these face types: 

  1. Oval – Perhaps the most common face type, characterized by a rounded chin and forehead, lends itself to the maximum number of frame styles. This is the most versatile face-type, and most any kind of frame, suits it.


  2. Rectangular – Then there is the long face characterized by a squarish chin. It can need some visual balance and hence, the best route to take is large square frames, that makes the often long nose, seem more congruent & proportional

  3. Triangle – People with broad face-tops that taper into a narrow rounded chin can do with some balance too. Best bet, to small size square or round frames that will visually reduce the top width of the face

  4. Square – The square face is typically one that has a broad forehead and square chin, with a pronounced jaw line. It can be softened by using oval & round shape frames


  5. Diamond – Narrow forehead and chin, but wide cheekbones, is typically the classic Diamond shaped face type. This means that the narrow parts need to be underscored, which is best accomplished with wider, big size frames

  6. Round – A round face something people often struggle with. But help is at hand, and to lend the face some shape and break the round form, angular, rectangle, wide frames work the best


  7. Pyramid – Finally, the pyramid shape face that is narrow on top, but wide at the chin. To provide definition to the forehead and eyes portions, the best bet is ornate frames in funky colors and designs.

 It’s a fascinating world of frames & the choices at a quality optician like Lawrence & Mayo, is the best solution to finding that perfect frame, for your face!
