5 Factors in Choosing Eyeglass Frames

Nov. 15, 2022

Choosing glasses that contrast with the contours of your face can bring symmetry and balance to your prominent features. Do you know how to find the right frame for you? Use these 5 tips to find the frames that best suit your style.


Eyeglass Frames

1. Face shape

The shape of your face will help you determine which frames will enhance your look.


Round faces

 Square or rectangular frames can make your face look slimmer and longer, thus adding balance to your round features and enhancing your face shape.


Oval faces

 Frames for oval faces have a strong nose bridge and are wider than the widest part of the face, in a geometric shape.


Diamond face

 Finishing off a narrow forehead and chin with frames that sweep over or are wider than your cheekbones, such as cat-eye glasses and oval frames, can accentuate your cheekbones and delicate features.


Square faces

Glasses that soften the angles and sit high on the bridge of the nose are best for square faces. Oval or round glasses will balance and add a thinner look to the angles of a square face.


2. The width of the eyes

Wide eyes require a wider frame as your eyes should sit just in the middle of the lens. A heavy bridge also helps to make your eyes look closer together.

Narrower eyes need a lighter and wider bridge so that it helps to visually push the eyes further apart.


3. The length of your nose

Do you have a long nose or a hooked nose? Glasses with a high nose bridge will make your nose look like a beak and elongate it further. So choose a frame with a low nose bridge to visually shorten the length of your nose.

4. Skin tone

Skin tone sets the tone for high fashion frames, more so than hair colour and more decisive than eye colour.


Warm colours

If you have a warm skin tone. The best frame colours for you are light tortoiseshell, brown tones, gold or honey, beige and olive green.


Cool skin tones

If you have a cool skin tone. Choose frames in silver, black, dark tortoiseshell, pink, purple, blue and grey.



5. Individuality

Frames say a lot about your personality, so your personality is the most important factor when choosing frames. The frame needs to match your personality and it has to be something that represents you. You want to feel great in your glasses, so the style you choose must represent your personality traits in your glasses. Choose a style of frame to express your personality, or have a handful on hand to easily change your look to suit your mood.
