Understanding Frame and Face Shapes

What is My Face Shape?

Most people have one of the following face shapes: Oval, square, round, heart, or diamond. By taking a look in the mirror, you can determine your face shape and discover which glasses suit you best. Remember, these are just guidelines. Your personal style and comfort are what truly matter.

Glasses Recommendations by Face Shape

Glasses for Oval Faces

Oval faces feature high and slightly wider cheekbones, tapering towards the forehead. This versatile shape can pull off nearly any style. For oval faces, we recommend:

  • Brooklyn Full Frame Reading Glasses: These frames are perfect for adding a touch of elegance and practicality. The ultra-thin Connect Case ensures your glasses are always with you. The classic design suits the balanced proportions of an oval face.
  • Mountain View Sunglasses: These sunglasses provide a stylish option that fits well with an oval face shape, offering both function and flair.

Glasses for Square Faces

Square faces are defined by strong, angular features and a straight jawline. To complement this shape, consider:

  • Manhattan Reading Glasses: Their rounder design helps soften angular features, providing a balanced look. The elegant Milano Case adds a touch of sophistication.
  • Brooklyn Reading Sunglasses: These sunglasses with a curved design balance the sharp angles of a square face, making them a perfect match.

Glasses for Round Faces

Round faces have soft curves and are roughly equal in width from jaw to brow. To add angles and balance, we suggest:

  • Connect Full Frame Reading Glasses: The taller lens of these glasses adds vertical length, enhancing the balance and appearance of round faces. The convenience of attaching to your phone ensures they are always with you.
  • Los Altos Sunglasses: These sunglasses offer a stylish and functional option that complements round faces with their distinct shape.

Glasses for Heart-Shaped Faces

Heart-shaped faces are widest at the forehead and narrowest at the chin. To balance this shape:

  • Manhattan Reading Glasses: Their rounder shape draws attention downward, balancing a wider forehead and narrower chin. The Milano Case adds a touch of elegance and convenience.
  • Menlo Park Sunglasses: These sunglasses provide excellent balance and style for heart-shaped faces, with their sleek design and effective sun protection.

Glasses for Diamond-Shaped Faces

Glasses for Triangle-Shaped Faces

Triangle faces have a wide jawline and a narrow forehead. To add balance:

  • Connect Full Frame Reading Glasses: The taller lens adds height and balance to your features, making them ideal for triangle-shaped faces. The ability to attach to your phone ensures they are always within reach.
  • Menlo Park Sunglasses: These sunglasses, with their wider top, add balance to the broader lower part of your face, making them a great match.
