Match your fashion with your features
Whether you choose to put on those peepers to up your style quotient or just so you can beat the blur off your eyes, choosing a perfect pair of eyeglasses which complement your personality can be quite a task. After all, it’s all about sporting the right look and exhibiting your style conscious attitude! Isn’t it?
So, the first and the most important rule which every fashion rule book states is to always go for frames which are in contrast to your face shape. And we can bet, it’s absolutely the first thing you should consider. Wearing eyeglasses, which are perfectly in contrast to your face shape, will help in accentuating your best features and attracting minimal attention to the narrower or wider areas of the face.
So, let’s have a look at what would be the most suitable options for different face shapes.
Round shaped face
Ah! We know how you feel with those cheeks falling all over your face. But believe us, your face shape also allows you to wear almost all shapes of eye frames, except of course the round ones! 🙂
Wear the traditional pair of rectangular shaped spectacles and see yourself making a statement, while that very shape would look oh-so-average on others.
Rectangle shaped face
No need to sulk more about adding a fashion pair of eyeglasses to your bold and sharp features.
How about giving them a retro twist by sporting retro or curvy frames? You are sure to exude the old world charm which never fails to impress! And without second thoughts, strike off the rectangular glasses from your list of eyewear options.
Diamond shaped face
Exhibiting vintage-inspired enigma, cat-eye or oval frames are the most suitable for the delicate diamond shaped faces defined by a narrow forehead and chin. You can even experiment with frames with a bit of detailing on the upper portion. And completely say no to heavy angular glasses.
Heart shaped face
Carrying an aura of exquisite grace, a heart-shaped face is defined by broad forehead and cheekbones and a cute li’l narrow chin. A classy pair of rimless eyeglasses with detailing on the bottom area will solely up the fashion ante and complement the face shape.
P.S.: Picking up a pair of tear drop shaped Aviator eyeglasses is a disaster in disguise.
Oval shaped face
Having an oval shaped face is no less than a blessing in disguise. With a proportionately curvy jaw line, it’s the most adaptable shape. That means you can unabashedly experiment with a host of quirky frames.
Go for a pair of bold hipsters which match your flamboyant style. Choose from an array of funky colours and textures. But don’t make the mistake of going for a frame too small or large for your face.
Oblong shaped face
If you have the perfect long face, you sure have an assortment of stylish eyeglasses to choose from. Oversized, angular square or retro round – you can pick from any of the modish pairs, reflecting your ultra-modern fashion sensibilities.
So, in order to score a perfect 10 on the fashion score meter, make sure you match your fashion eyewear accessories with your features as it can either be a killer or a spoiler!
