What are the Best Eyeglasses for Your Face Shape?

What are the Best Eyeglasses for Your Face Shape? infographic 

We can spend hours sitting in front of a mirror at the eyeglass store trying on every style of glasses they own… or we can read the What are the Best Eye Glasses for Your Face Shape? infographic from Zenni. Lets face it, our faces can’t pull off any look, so do yourself a favor and find the eyeglasses for your shape of face.

The general theme behind the infographic is to demonstrate that thought must be put into the frame design you’re planning on purchasing. By pairing your new frame design to the basic shape of your face, you’ll ensure that your eyeglasses are of a complimentary design - and help you look your best!

Eyeglasses are a fact of life for many of us. Beyond the benefit of clearer vision lies the ability to complement your facial features and overall look with eyeglass frames. In fact, there is some science behind selecting the appropriate frame that pairs nicely with the general shape of your face.

At Zenni Optical, we have constructed a simple way to determine which eyeglass frame will work best for you - all based on the basic shape of your face. Whether you have a “square face” that responds well to rounded or oval shaped frames in darker colors, or a “heart shaped” face that works well with oval or round shapes in lighter colors, you’ll be able to better choose the best eyeglasses for your face shape.

This is a great visual topic for an infographic!  If they had just tried to explain face shapes in text, it wouldn’t have worked at all.

A section on how to determine your own face shape would have been helpful.

Thanks to Daniel and Stacey for sending in the link!

I was hiking yesterday, and as I bent over to look over a cliff my glasses fell off my face. Now I need to get a new pair of eyeglasses. My previous pair was very old, and it needed to be replaced anyways. I'm going to make sure that the new glasses I get look good on my face. /

Really great review of the best eyeglasses for each face shape. I have a round face, and I would agree that angular frames work best on my face. Thanks for sharing!

It may sound silly, but I'm not sure which face shape I have. The heart shape might be closest. I might be able to tell better if I pulled my hair back, I suppose. If that is my shape, at least I have dark frames for my glasses. While I do want to look good, the most important thing for me is that I can see well.

Educative share…..

Whether it is male or female, kids or an adult, one must always pick eyeglasses according to their face shape and structure.

I went through the whole info-graphic image that you have shared above….Certainly it is very informative.
People do not care so much….But to look smart and presentable these points should be considered as facts and should be followed accordingly.

After reading your post, my wife got her eye glasses from http://www.classicspecs.com/online-glasses/about-vintage-sunglasses store and trust me she was looking fab…..

Thank you so very much for sharing this post with us and enhancing our knowledge.

I get my eyeglass at https://www.eo-executiveoptical.com/, I ordered it online. And every time I got my frame, this won't fit for me. Then I do research about it and I discovered, eyeglasses have its own identities to fit with. And now I enjoyed all the frames I purchased.
