It is a well-known fact that Glasses correct your vision and solve your eye-sight issues. Gone are the days when Frames came in such drab and horrid designs that having sight issues was a sure shot way of becoming the butt of jokes. Nowadays with such cool styles, different patterns, and edgy designs, even the nerd look is in. People have taken to wearing glasses not just for their vision woes but also as a fashion accessory! A style statement!
The correct pair of Frames can give dimension and character to your face and also add depth. I personally find men in glasses very sexy albeit they are wearing the right kind of glasses. So how to determine which is the right pair of frames?This question becomes even more vital especially when a lot of great deals on glasses and frames are available online where you can’t try the frames before buying them. It basically involves recognising your face shape and keeping in mind some basic rules regarding size and proportion.
Generally there are four widely accepted types of face shapes.
- Square Shape with wide forehead, cheeks and chin
If you have a square shaped face, then pick slightly rounder frames. They will help you in softening your face and give you some length to attain balance.
- Round Shape with a round forehead and chin and wider cheeks
If your face shape is round then, opt for well-structured frames in darker colours. Pick rectangular and similar wider shaped frames. They will help elongating your face.
- Oval Shape with a narrow forehead and chin but comparatively wider cheeks
If your face is oval, then pick symmetrical glasses which are a blend of structure and soft round edges. They will help maintain the balance of your face.
- Heart Shape with wide forehead and cheeks but a narrow chin.
If you have a heart shaped face then most frames will look good on your frames and you can pick any style you please and also mix different styles and experiment.
The important thing to remember is that the size of the frames should be proportional to your face. If you have a small face then pick small frames.
