You don’t need to be a fashion expert to find eyeglasses that look great on you. And you don’t have to spend an entire day trying on hundreds of frames. 

The key to a flattering frame is in choosing a pair that complements your face and personality. You can pick out a frame that enhances all of your best features. The key is to choose a frame that looks great with the shape of your face.

Luxe Eyewear, your source for eyewear in Frisco, offers how to choose the right eyeglasses for you.

Heart-Shaped Face

If you have a heart-shaped face (how sweet), you want frames that balance the width of the forehead with the narrowness of the chin. Frames with low-set temples are good and bottom-heavy frames are ideal as well.  Square or round frames tend to help draw attention away from a broad forehead, so keep that in mind.

Stay away from frames that draw too much attention to your forehead. This would include frames that have embellished tops or decorative temples.

Diamond Face

You will want a pair of frames that will play up the narrow chin and forehead. Oval frames or cat-eye frames will do just that. These frames do a good job accentuating your cheekbones and delicate features.

Narrow and boxy frames should be avoided as they tend to accentuate the width of your cheeks and draw attention to your narrow features.

Square Face

Frames that sit high on the bridge of the nose and soften the angularity look great on square faces. Round or oval frames will balance and add a thinner appearance to the angles of a square face.

If you have a square face, you will want to avoid boxy frames as they will sharpen your angular features and draw attention to them. 

Oval Face

Frames with a strong bridge will suit anyone with an oval face. You will want frames that are wider than the broadest part of your face. 

Avoid frames that are too large and cover up much of your face. This will throw off the natural balance of your face.

Round Face

Frames that are rectangular or square tend to look wider on people with round faces. This makes your face appear longer and slimmer, which adds balance to the round features. 

Small frames, rimless frames and round frames should be avoided if you have a round face. These types of frames will make a round face look even rounder. 

The frames you choose says a lot about your personality. You can have a pair of glasses that show your fun side that you can wear on the weekends and a pair of sunglasses that emphasize the business side of you. You can have several frames that express your personality or reflect your current mood.
