We now come to the most important question: how to choose the right frame for us, the one that can enhance our face and features? For example, you can follow these suggestions:

1. Look in the mirror to determine the shape of your face.

The face shapes tend to be seven: round, heart-shaped with triangle with base at the top, triangular, with base at the bottom, square, rectangular, oblong and oval.

Once you understand what your face shape is, you can choose the opposition frame.

2. Choose frames that are the opposite of your face shape.

For example, full faces without edges are more enhanced by frames with sharp edges, angular faces instead by round frames.
Round faces give frames with corners or squares, as they make them appear longer and thinner, while those with the heart shape will be better off with wider frames at the base, which tend to enlarge the lower part of the face.

Yes to geometric frames for triangular faces, while square faces look good with round or oval frames, which soften the corners of the face.

Those with heavy jaws can try a frame emphasized in the upper line, while those with a square face should prefer a narrow, wide and low height frame.

THE Rectangular faces look best with round frames, because in this way they seem wider, while oblong ones can wear round or curved frames, which reduce length by emphasizing width, e ovals – lucky them – can wear any frame.

The main advice, however, is always and only one: wear what makes you feel good and makes you feel comfortable.

3. Choose the right frame size for your face

As with a suit, even glasses, if they don’t fit perfectly, do not enhance the face. To orient yourself in the choice of size it must be considered that the top line of the frame should follow the curve of the eyebrows, and that it should neither slide on the nose nor move when smiling.

4. Choose a frame color that enriches your face.

Cold color if you have a cold skin color, warm if you have a warm face color. Even these small details can make a difference to make a face stand out.

The two-tone frame, lighter on the bridge, is instead good for those with close eyes, as it gives the impression of greater width.
