Eyewear Fitment Guide
Proper fit and personalized style are two main objectives when selecting eyewear. Face size and shape determine what styles will fit comfortably while balancing your features. To make the best selection, a thorough understanding of different types of faces will enhance ones' ability to make these decisions.
This face shape is considered to be ideal because the proportions are balanced. It is the most versatile shape as most eyewear is flattering on this face. To keep the oval's natural balance, try frames that are as wide as (or wider than) the broadest part of the face.
Try: Square shaped frames with rounded edges or eyewear with high temples.
A round face is curved with both the length and width equally proportionate. For an elongated, thinner appearance, try angular narrow frames to lengthen the face. Deeper colors such as black or tortoise also minimize fullness.
Try: Wide frames with angular or rectangular styles that pull attention upwards.
Diamond-shaped faces are narrow at the eye and jaw lines with cheekbones that are often high and dramatic. To highlight the eyes and bring out the cheekbones, try frames with distinctive brow line or rounded styles.
Try: Oval shapes that soften the contours of the face.
A square face has a strong jaw line and broad forehead with the width and length proportional to each other. Reduce the angles and compliment this shape with frames that are slightly curved around the edges.
Try: Classic oval or cat-eye style frames.
