Your eyeglasses are one of the first things that people notice about you. They shape the first impression and add to your personal style. In short, your glasses are a part of your identity. Finding frames that work well with your face shape will enhance your looks while adding to your personality!

To help you out, we’ve identified the six most common face shapes and the frame styles best suited to each.


Angular or rectangle frames work well on round face shapes, as they add definition and contrast to the full cheeks and rounded chin.


Triangle face shapes are best set off by frames with a wider top. These style frames will help to balance the narrow forehead with a wider jawline. Circular frames draw attention to eyes and help lengthen your face.


If you have a square face shape, your strong and angular features are best complemented by round or oval frames.


Oval face shapes are evenly proportional, with soft cheekbones and jawlines. Larger frames with a round or rectangle shape will flatter your symmetrical features.


A narrow forehead and high cheekbones make the diamond face shape especially dramatic. Frames with distinct details or browline shapes will soften your cheekbones and draw attention to your eyes.
