How to Choose Eye Glass Frames for Your Face Shape

Eye glasses have been a celebrated fashion accessory for men since the late 1950s - think of iconic photos of Yves Saint Laurent, Buddy Holly, Woody Allen or John Lennon. As of late, the trend in eyeglasses has moved from the inconspicuous frameless glasses to the obvious, bold frames with oversize lenses. There are wire frames and heavy frames in oval, round, hexagonal, octagonal, square or what have you. Find a pair that proportionally suits your face, like you would a hat, and the frame will flatter your positive facial features. Think of the image or look you want to create for yourself.
  • Round face - angular frames
  • Square face - long narrow frames
  • Diamond face - wide wire frames
  • Oval face - you're perfect go for anything
  • Large face - large frames
  • Small face - small frames
  • Large nose - heavy dark frames
  • Dark circles/wrinkles - heavy substantial frames
