Influencers Show Off the Best Eyewear for Your Face Shape
When shopping for glasses, there are a few things that help make your decision easier: virtual try-on for instant gratification, connecting your vision benefits to know exactly what you’ll pay at checkout, and knowing what frame shapes work best for your features.
We believe that you should choose any glasses that make you feel great, no matter what the shape, style, color, or pattern. But, if you want a safe bet or help narrowing down a huge selection, following face shape guidelines is sure to help.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite social media influencers to show you what glasses work best for the four most common face shapes.
Heart-shaped FaceIs your face widest at the forehead and tapers down to the jaw? If so, you have a heart-shaped face and it’s best to stick to smaller rectangular, square or aviator frames. They’ll minimize the width of your face and balance out the difference in width between your forehead and jaw.
Joy Green looks great in Chloé CE2130 rounded aviator glasses. They come in silver or gold and since they also have adjustable nose pads, they’re perfect for anyone with a low nose bridge.

Square-shaped FaceIf your face is equally wide at the forehead, cheek bones and jaw, you have a square face and round, oval or slightly curved frames will complement your features best by softening your look.
Hailing from San Francisco, Blogger Justin Blomgren has chiseled features that are beautifully balanced by round Calvin Klein glasses.

Round-shaped FaceHave an equally wide forehead and rounded jaw with fuller cheeks? Rectangular frames are sure to flatter your features by adding some angles and elongating your face.
Francis Kenneth selected Salvatore Ferragamo SF809SA sunglasses. They combine a rectangular shape with a double bridge, reminiscent of a classic aviator but better suited to his face shape. They’re also designed to be supportive for people with a low nose bridge.

Oval-shaped FaceThis face shape is longer than it is wide and while the forehead may be wider than the jaw, the jaw is more narrow than the cheekbones. Lucky you! Just like Quigley, you’ll look great in any frame. Just be sure you order the correct size.
Being a stylish trendsetter, Quigley ordered MCM 2642 glasses in Havana Violet, a round acetate frame with high metal bridge.
