Cat Eye Glasses for Different Face Shapes
Choosing the right frame shape for your face can make or break how you feel in your glasses. By working with the natural shape of your face, you can select a pair that’ll have you feeling confident every time you slide them on.
There’s not necessarily a "one size fits all" cat eye glasses face shape, but certain facial features tend to play better with cat eye frames than others. Below we’ll touch on which face shapes tend to be best accentuated by this style.
Those with strong jawlines and wider face shapes look great in these frames due to their upward rising angle. This has a lengthening, lifting effect on the face that works well to create a balanced look. For this reason, you really can’t go wrong with cat eye glasses for round face shapes. They’re also an excellent choice for those rocking a square, diamond, or heart-shaped face.
Those with more length than width, like with an oval face shape, may find that they prefer the way that square or rectangular frames work with their features - although, with the wide assortment of sizes and colors that cat eyes come in, it’s easy to find a pair that works with just about any face shape.
Their versatility and ability to work well with so many types has played a large role in keeping this style around and allowing it to become a classic.
The Perfect Frame Color and Material for Your Cat Eye Glasses
Like we mentioned above, there are cat eye frames out there to suit just about any taste or style preference. You can find bright, retro colors that look like they’re straight out of the ’60s alongside sleek, modern, neutrally colored designs that look just as fresh as frame styles that have only been around a fraction of the time.
While at the end of the day, it all comes down to your unique style, there are some points that might help you to narrow down the plethora of choices you’ll have.
Generally speaking, those with warmer underlying skin tones tend to pair well with cat eye glasses frames that feature warmer colors. If you aren’t quite sure about going with a bold red, there are a lot of rustic, muted warm shades to pick from that won't draw as much attention. Have a preference for metallic frames over plastic? Try out a rose gold or bronze-toned pair.
Those with cooler underlying skin tones can accentuate their skin by choosing frames that feature cooler colors. If you’re feeling adventurous, go ahead and grab a pair in purple! Those looking to play it safe will likely find silvertone frames to be a flattering choice.
Of course, all skin tones look great with black frames - and if you’re looking for a safe bet that’s one way to ensure you’ll be happy with how they look.
You can also find cat eye half-rimmed glasses, which are a great choice if you’re only looking for a splash of color.
