How Do I Choose The Right Glasses Frames For Me?

The biggest factors you need to consider when selecting a pair of glasses frames includes your budget, personal style, lifestyle, and vision correction needs. With so many factors and so many choices, however, it can be hard to choose the perfect fit for you. Here are some helpful suggestions from our optician:

  • People with square faces look best in glasses frames that appear to lengthen the face and soften the face's angles. Try oval frames, which are slightly curved and far more horizontally-oriented.
  • Oval faces are proportionate and do well with frames (such as diamond and rectangular) that complement this balance, and frames that tend to be as wide as the face and follow the brow line. 
  • Oblong faces are much longer than they are wide and look great with glasses that make them appear shorter, such as round, deep frames with strong vertical lines and a low bridge.
  • Round faces are circular and look great with frames that are more angular, narrow, and wide.
  • Heart-shaped faces fit well with glasses that are wider at the bottom to off-set the narrow chin. This face shape also looks good with rimless or aviator style glasses frames.
  • Triangle-shaped faces with the base at the bottom (imagine a pyramid) instead tend to look best with glasses that are wider at the top to help off-set a broad chin. Cat eye frames or heavy color and detail at the top of the glasses frames strikes this balance perfectly. 
  • Diamond-shaped faces do best with oval shaped frames to help soften the dramatic angles and highlight the person's cheekbones and eyes.

Square Oval Oblong Round Heart Triangle Diamond


A square face is often characterized by a strong jaw line, a broad forehead, and a wide chin and cheekbones. The width and length of the face are close to being equal. Frames should be selected to make the face look longer and to soften the square angles of the face. Choose frames that are slightly curved (like an oval shape) and that have more horizontal than vertical real estate.


The oval face is identifiable by its balanced proportions. The forehead is slightly wider than the chin and cheekbones are high. Frames should complement the natural proportions of the oval. Choose frames that are wide or wider than the broadest part of the face and that follow your brow line. Often, diamond or rectangular shapes work best for oval shapes.


Although fairly similar to an oval shape, an oblong face is longer than it is wide. The ideal frames will shorten the face by creating a break in the length of the face. Choose frames that have depth and a low bridge to shorten the nose. Try frames that are round, deep, have low-triangle shapes, or that have strong vertical lines.


A round or full face is characterized by having the same width and length. For round faces, frames that add length to the face often work best. Frames that lengthen the face are typically angular, narrow and are wider than they are deep. It is best to avoid round style frames as these will exaggerate the roundness and curves of the face.


A heart shaped face looks like a heart or a triangle with the point facing down. The forehead is very wide and cheekbones are high while the face narrows towards the chin. Counterbalance the narrow chin by choosing frames that are wider at the bottom. Generally, light colored and rimless frames work best, although aviator, butterfly and low-triangle styles also work well.


A base-down triangle face has a narrower forehead with full cheeks and a broad chin. To offset a broad chin, select frames that widen at the top. Great selections include frames that have heavy color accents and detail on the top part of the frames. Cat-eye shapes also work well to add width and emphasize the narrow upper part of the face.


A diamond shaped face is often characterized by high, dramatic cheekbones with a narrow eye line and jaw line. This shape is the rarest of all the shapes. Oval frames that are soft in style typically work best to highlight the eyes and cheekbones. Select frames that have detailing, distinctive brow lines, are rimless or a cat-eye shape for best results.
