If you are a new eyeglasses wearer, it can be difficult to know which type of frame to choose. With so many options to pick from, it can be overwhelming to know what will best suit you. Whether you have a round, square, or triangular-shaped face, we have put together the perfect guide to help find you the eyeglasses of your dreams!
Square Shaped Faces
People with square faces tend to suit thin and round frames that are wider on the side. Generally, if you have a square face, you will want to choose a round or oval frame to create a balanced look and soften any hard angles. But keep in mind that you will also want frames that are in proportion to your face’s length and width.
Round Shaped Faces
Those who have round faces will usually have a face approximately the same width from the eyebrow down to the jaw. Round faces also tend to have fuller cheeks with a rounded chin and few angles. With this in mind, you will want to look for frames that will add angles to your face.
People with round faces tend to look fantastic wearing bold and angular frames. Here are three types of styles that will suit a round face:

- Rectangular Frames – will give the illusion of a thinner and longer face.
- D-Frames – will draw attention to those fuller cheeks while also putting the focus onto your eyes.

- Oval Frames – to draw attention to your eyes with an oval-shaped frame, especially if you have a pointy chin.
- Rimless Frames – create a minimalist look with a rimless frame. These look great on heart-shaped faces as they are unobtrusive.
- Bottom-heavy Frames – create width to your face with a bottom-heavy frame.

People with triangular-shaped faces tend to have their widest point at the bottom and their narrowest point at the top of their face. With this in mind, you will want frames that do the opposite! Try on some frames that are bold on the top and light on the bottom to create a mirror-opposite look.
