Face Shape Guide

How do I choose the most flattering Sunglasses & Eyeglasses for my facial structure?

Here’s the universal tip: When choosing the size of the frame think about proportion and balance. Smaller frames go with smaller faces, the same applies to larger frames which are made to suit larger faces. Look for frames that compliment your face by softening or drawing attention away from your most prominent features. In addition, opt for styles that are opposite of your facial shape. For example, if you have a square shaped face choose round frames to create curves.
