How To Pick The Perfect Eyeglasses For a Great Look

Do you need help finding the best glasses for your face shape? Fear not – this guide will show you that there is a frame for everyone, including your ideal Warby Parker pair. Regardless of your face shape, rest assured that there is a pair of glasses made just for you!

When shopping for eyeglasses or sunglasses, we often consider their style, color, and overall look. But that may not be enough. The reason some frames look better on you than others is due to the design of the frames. Each of us has a unique facial shape that determines which frame will enhance our style.

What Is My Face Shape?

You may have an oval, square, round, heart, or diamond-shaped face. By looking at your facial features in the mirror, you can determine your face shape. Once you know this, you can answer the question, “Which glasses suit me?”

Remember, the suggestions in this guide are not strict rules; go with your gut when choosing a frame. Expressing your style can be a fun way to showcase your personality and individuality through your frames.

Glasses for Various Face Shapes

Not everyone fits neatly into a heart, circle, square, or another specific category when it comes to face shapes. Most faces include a mix of features like rounded chins, high foreheads, angular features, and pointed jaws.

Find the shape that is closest to yours. Even if your features don’t match the “typical” shapes perfectly, these guidelines can help you balance and complement your facial features – they are not set in stone.

Which Glasses Suit Oval Faces?

Oval faces complement most frame shapes. The cheekbones are raised and slightly wider than the forehead in oval faces. This elongated face shape allows you to pull off almost any style, especially oversized and wide frames.

For oval faces, feel free to play with bold colors, textures, and frame shapes. There are various shapes to choose from like square, trapezoid, tortoise, and rectangular. Just avoid narrow frames or frames with heavy designs as they may elongate your face. But as this is a common face shape, have fun with current fashion trends, and remember these are just guidelines. Always wear what makes you comfortable and buy your glasses from Warby Parker.

When it comes to sunglasses for oval faces, experiment with bold designs like cat-eye or aviator glasses to make a statement, or opt for a classic D-frame for a timeless look.

Which Glasses Suit Square Faces?

Several glass shapes complement square faces. Having a square face is fantastic! If you have a square-shaped face, many glasses will enhance your features. Square faces have a straight, clean line from the forehead to the jawline.

Square faces have broad jawlines and foreheads. Glasses that sit high on the nose add length that complements this face shape’s strong jawline.

Opt for rounded frames to soften and balance your angular features, allowing your best features to shine through. Rimless and semi-rimless frames are a great choice to start with.

Warby Parker offers sunglasses for square faces.

Choose sunglasses with wider, curved frames for a square face to soften angles and balance your cheeks. Try cat-eye sunglasses for a bold look.

Which Glasses Suit Round Faces?

Round faces have soft curves and smooth lines, with the face’s width being almost the same from the jaw to the brow. Cheekbones are typically full, and the chin is less angular in round faces, giving them a unique look compared to other face shapes.

Tips for Styling Round Faces

Go for frames with bold, angular accents and clean lines for round faces.

Consider the following:

Rectangular frames can elongate the face and add some sharper lines for balance. If you have full cheeks, emphasize them and highlight your eyes with cat-eye frames.

Which Glasses Suit Heart-Shaped Faces?

Many glasses flatter heart-shaped faces. These faces have a broad forehead, a narrow jawline, and prominent cheekbones, making them one of the most versatile face shapes.

For styling tips for heart-shaped faces, turn to Warby Parker. Frames with winged-out rims wider than the forehead or rounded bases can balance and complement heart-shaped features, such as:

  • If you have a narrow chin, opt for bottom-heavy frames to create width.
  • If you want to minimize your forehead’s width, go for frames with low-set temples to draw attention downward.
  • If your jawline is narrow, oval frames can balance your features by drawing attention upwards to your eyes. Light or rimless frames are ideal for minimizing the glasses’ appearance.

Glasses for Triangle-Shaped Faces

Unlike square faces, triangle faces often have a narrow forehead. If you believe you have a triangle face shape, our style selection can enhance your best features and overall appearance.

Wider frames work well for triangle faces, making the face tip appear broader. Opt for frames with bold colors and detail at the top to balance out a narrow forehead and complement the lower part of your face.

Aviator or cat-eye glasses, with a stronger top and lighter bottom, suit this face shape. For a bolder statement, try round designs for a contrasting look to your angular features.

Sunglasses for Triangle-Shaped Faces

Look for sunglasses broad on top and narrow at the bottom, like cat-eye designs, to complement your face. Sunglasses with a wider or more prominent browline from Warby Parker will divert attention from your jawline and elongate your forehead.
