The days of being teased endlessly for wearing specs are over. In fact, not only are glasses now acceptable in society, they’re completely in style and even desirable. There’s a serious argument to be made for glasses being one of the most important accessories in your closet — you wear them everyday, they are the very first thing people see when they look at you, and for most people who own them, they’re entirely necessary for everyday life.
With fall officially here, revamping your eyewear is key — it’s the hottest new accessory (like you just learned above)! Picking the right pair of frames is quite the difficult job, as there are so many styles around us.
Luxury eyewear brand, LineArt offers unique, lightweight- comfortable styles for women of all ages and different style preferences, by using innovative technologies such as micro welding. The brand can truly be considered jewelry for the face.
Below are tips and frame suggestions from LineArt on choosing the right glasses for your face shape from Michele Ziss, Director of Product and Marketing at CHARMANT.
Oval: An oval face is considered to be the ideal shape because of its balanced proportions. To keep the oval’s natural balance, look for eyeglass frames that are as wide as (or wider than) the broadest part of the face, or walnut-shaped frames that are not too deep or too narrow.
Square: A square face has a strong jaw line and a broad forehead, plus the width and length are in the same proportions. To make a square face look longer and to soften the angles, try narrow frame styles, frames that have more width than depth, and narrow ovals.
Round: A round face has curved lines with the width and length in the same proportions and no angles. To make a round face appear thinner and longer, try angular narrow eyeglass frames to lengthen the face and frames that are wider than they are deep, such as a rectangular shape.
Heart: This face has a very wide top third and small bottom third. To minimize the width of the top of the face, try frames that are wider at the bottom, very light colors and materials and rimless frame styles (which have a light, airy effect because the lenses are simply held in place by a few screws, with no surrounding frame material).
Oblong: An oblong face is longer than it is wide and has a long straight cheek line and sometimes a longish nose. To make an oblong face appear shorter and more balanced, try frames that have more depth than width, decorative or contrasting temples that add width to the face, or a low bridge to shorten the nose.
