Luckily, our friendly Dispensing Opticians have the perfect knack of helping you find your perfect pair.  We asked them for their 4 top tips for matching frames to faces…

4 tips on how to choose the best glasses for you

  1. Go for contrast – The shape of your frame should contrast the shape of your face. So if you have a rounder face, you’ll look great in more angular styles. Got an angular face? Soften your features with rounder shapes.
  2. Proportion – In general, you want your glasses to be in proportion to your face. Unlike sunglasses, where it’s the bigger, the better – for coverage, protection and added star factor!
  3. Colour – Black frames are brilliant for highlighting your eyes. While coloured frames can contrast your hair and skin tone to turn heads and make a bold style statement.
  4. Face Shape – No two faces are the same, so here’s how to find a pair of frames as individual as you:
  • Got a sculpted square shaped face? Go for oval or rounded rectangles to soften your look.
  • Got an elegant narrow face? Try a taller frame, which takes up more room and shows off your best features.
  • Got a pretty round face? Rectangular frames look best. You can carry off contrasting bridges too.
  • If your face is wider on the bottom, try a half-rim style or a dramatic cat eye to bring attention up and balance out your jaw line.
  • Got a timeless oval face? You may look your best in top heavy frames and butterfly shapes, which elegantly curve upwards and out.
