What style of frame will suit my face?

Deciding on the right frame for your unique style and face shape is one of the hardest parts of choosing the right pair of sunglasses or optical frames. Whilst there are certainly no fixed rules to what will work best for you the below guide is meant to help you make that difficult decision.

It is important to remember that despite all the tips below about what will suit the shape of your face we believe the most important factor in any sunglass or optical frame decision is how they make you feel when you are wearing them. If a pair of glasses make you extra confident you will look great in them, also the beauty of fashion is that you don't always have to stick to conventions. If you are unsure about whether to go ahead on a particular style feel free to email us at edandsarna@gmail.com and we will try and arrange a fitting if you are local to us or alternatively provide any extra information needed about the frames.

For the heart shaped faces amongst us the styles that will work best will help accentuate the primary features of your face shape. Look out for frames that are wider at the top than the bottom such as wayfarer, clubmaster and catseye styles.


For those with a rounded face shape where the widest part of the face is at the cheeks and features and curves of the face are less angular we suggest going for oversized frames in the wayfarer, catseye or square styles. Squares will look particular strong as they create a juxtaposition to the less angular face shape. 


So if you are lucky enough to have been blessed with an oval face shape then we have great news for you, arguably you can get away with almost any style and they will look great on you!! So instead here are a few tips to make sure they look extra special. Aim for styles that will cover the face from eye to cheekbone, styles that are slightly oversized will look awesome on you.


If you have a more angular face often the best tip is to soften the face by going for styles such as panto, rounds, gatsby and classic aviators frames.
