How to Choose a Frame For Your Face
You should consider three main points when choosing an eyeglass frame for your face shape:
- Eyewear should repeat your personal best feature (such as a green frame to match green eyes!).
- The shape of the frame should contrast with the shape of your face.
- The size of the frame should be in scale with the size of your face. But the recent trend is such that the spectacles are over-sized.
Also, there are seven basic face shapes: round, oval, oblong, base-down triangle, base-up triangle, diamond and square. Although the face is usually a combination of different angles and curves, see if you can identify a predominant feature that characterises your face.
