Find the perfect match for your face shape
Choosing the right frame for your face shape can be difficult. Let us help you choose the perfect pair of glasses!

Your Best Fit: Round Face

All About that Bass, No Treble

You’re all about the curves, baby! With fuller cheeks and a rounder chin, your feminine features are not only proportional in length and width, but are likely to keep you looking more youthful.

Your best bet are frames with strong angular shapes. A slight upsweep at the corners will be sure to draw attention to your great cheeks and eyes.

Your Best Fit: Oval Face

When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change

Proportionate and well-balanced, an oval face shape grants you the freedom to experiment with a large variety of frames.

Be sure to stay away from a frame that is too large or too small, as it will throw off your natural balance. Otherwise, it’s all fair game. You might want to consider square or rectangular frames to add an appropriate amount of contrast to your face.

Your Best Fit: Heart Shaped Face

Don’t Go Breaking My Heart

Also known as the inverted triangle, your oh-so-sweet face starts out broad at the forehead and cheeks, and sweeps down to a pointed chin.

Find a frame that balances the varying widths of your face.

Your Best Fit: Square Face

She’s not just a pretty face

You’re so proportional! Typical characteristics of this face shape are a strong jaw line with a broad forehead and square chin.

Your best bet is to find frames that contrast your angular jaw and hairline, such as softer ovals and rounds. Don’t be afraid to add a punch of color!
