How to choose the best frame shape for your face

Here are the ideal frames for the different face shapes.
Round face: Aviator or square frames will compliment your round face perfectly. While choosing a frame you should try to choose one that lengthens your features. Opt for frame tips with a clear bridge; they make your eyes appear wider. Round frames should be avoided at all costs.
Oval face: An oval-shaped face is by large considered the ‘perfect’ face shape. This is given that most frame shapes work well with oval faces, including aviator, square and oval. It is however best to pick frames that are at least as wide as the widest part of your face. The idea is to ensure a sense of proportion and maintain balance.
Square face: A square face is one that is as long as it is wide. Circular or curved frames will suit a square face. If you have a square face, try to choose frames that have a greater width than depth. This will add a more softening effect.
Oblong face: An oblong face is typically a lengthy and angular one with less width. Oblong or faces that are rectangular look good in circular, deep rectangular and triangular frames. A frame that is broader than its width can help accentuate your features.
Heart shaped face: If you have a heart-shaped face, circular and geometric frames will suit you well. Opt for wide bottomed frames as opposed to rimless ones. The idea is to minimize your generous temple width and draw your eyes more to the lower part of your face.

Diamond shaped face: A diamond shaped face is an angular one characterized by wide cheekbones, and a narrow chin and forehead. Aviator, square and circular frames go well with such face shapes. Opt for frames that are top-heavy, like frames that come with detailing over the brow line and semi-rimless ones.
