trendy accessories 2018

The shape of you faces matters lot when selecting a pair of glasses. You need to be careful enough to find glasses which accentuates and increases the shape of your face rather than hiding it. Faces come in many different shapes. There surely is a flattering shape for all the types. If you take some time to study and find the shape that works for you, you will definitely find a perfect pair.

Let me give you a small guide on how to select glasses for your face shape. First of all, make sure you go in front of a mirror and study the structure of your face, looking at your jawlines and the overall shape.

Glasses for Oval Faces

If your face is oval, usually most of the glass shapes work for you. The best shapes to go are the glasses with wide bridges and geometric. Do not select frames which are overly large which can cover most of your face. You have one of the most flattering face shapes of them all, therefore, always try to work with the symmetry of the face with smaller glass frames rather than going against it.

Glasses for Round Face

Round faces can be made really flattering if you select the right glasses for your face shape. Go for a square or triangle frame which adds another dimension to the shape of your face and appears it looking slimmer from the sides and longer than it is. You should definitely avoid frameless or round frames that will only make your face appear rounder, which is not very flattering.


Glasses for Heart-Shaped Faces

If you have a wide forehead with a narrow chin which makes your face look a beautiful heart shape, try and play on the strong points by wearing frames which have a heavier bottom. Get round or square glasses with a dramatic curve towards the bottom to balance out the harsh and delicate lines on your face. It is always better to avoid coloured frames which focus on your forehead and make it appear bigger.

Glasses for Square Faces

If you have a square face with strong jaw lines, the best glasses for your face shape are the ones which make the lines softer. You can go for oval and round glasses which will balance out and make the shape of your face look more flattering. Avoid geometric or square shaped frames which will add more to the harsh lines and make the overall look unappealing.

Glasses for Diamond-Shaped Faces

Diamond shaped faces are very unique, and they usually have narrow foreheads with narrow chins. You can use this shape to your advantage and accentuate it by wearing glasses which have wider frames. The best glasses for your face shape are frames with soft edges which are more oval in shape. Avoiding strong lines such as square or box type frames will make sure you do not give a harsher look to your face.
