HOW TO PICK THE RIGHT FRAMES FOR YOUR FACE (PART 2)

In our last blog, we shared frames for any face shape as well as the best frames for a square face. As promised, we are going to explore round, oval and heart face shapes.

Not sure what shape your face is? Use this guide to determine your shape and then use the tips below to choose your perfect frame from Rx Optical.

FACE SHAPE: OVAL
An oval face has balanced features with a slightly narrower forehead and jaw. Oval faces work with a wide variety of frames so if this is you, go crazy!

Frames:
Rectangle
Square
Cateye

Dolce and Gabana frames are known for having contrasting yet complementary features. The contrast of square against an oval face is a sophisticated way to accent your features.

FACE SHAPE: ROUND
Those with round faces are known for having full cheeks and a rounded chin. Most likely, your forehead and jaw will be the same width.

If you have a round face,you should choose frames that are wider than they are tall, and have hard angles to complement the soft curves of your face. The cateye is a fun frame that looks great on a round face.

While not as an exaggerated of a cateye as some frames, our Tiffany & Co collection is perfect for those seeking glamour and uniqueness.Inspired by Tiffany’s exclusive diamond collection and recognized icons and logos, these frames represent modern luxury and timeless elegance.

FACE SHAPE: HEART
Heart-shaped faces are broadest at the forehead and taper through the jawline to a narrow chin. Otherwise known as an upside down triangle, frames that are slightly wider than the forehead will fit this shape best.

Frames:

Cateye
Rectangle

These frames from Ogi Eyewear are distinct in that they are bold, yet wearable. The rectangle frames on the left are the perfect complement to a heart-shaped face.
