Square Glasses Frames for Different Face Shapes
Choosing the right frame shape for your face might seem intimidating, but by taking a few key points into account, you’ll be heading in the right direction in no time.
Unsure of what your face shape actually is? You’re not alone there either!
It’s not something that people do a whole lot of thinking about until the time comes to pick out glasses.
Generally speaking, those with square faces have angled jawlines with the width of their faces being about the same as the length. While those with this face shape can pull off square frames, their faces pair particularly well with round and cat-eye frames.
Those with round faces have similar proportions to those with square faces, with the difference being that the sides of their faces curve outward rather than sitting straight. Square glasses for round face shapes are an excellent choice. Square glasses add an element of balance to the curving along the length of the face.
Oval faces are wider around the forehead than they are at the chin (which is curved) while being longer than they are wide. Those with this face shape typically have no trouble finding the right frame shape, as they have both strong and soft angles to work with which makes maintaining balance easy.
Rectangular faces are shaped similarly to oval faces, but with less curve and sharper angles around the jaw and length of the face. This face shape works particularly well with “oversized” frames with round curves, such as browline frames.
If you have a heart-shaped face, your chin will be pointed and your forehead will be the widest point of your face - think an upside-down triangle. If this is your face shape, you’ll have no problems rocking rectangular frames or other styles that sharper angles.
Diamond-shaped faces are sometimes difficult to distinguish from heart-shaped faces, but there are some key differences. The main being that the diamond shape features less width at the top of the head, with the cheeks being the widest point. If this is your shape, you have a lot of styles to choose from. Two of the best shapes are oval and rectangular.
The Perfect Frame Color and Material for Your Square Glasses
Square frame glasses leave plenty of room for expressing your individuality with color, pattern, and material selection. Women’s and men’s square glasses alike will leave you with a seemingly endless stream of options to choose from.
Not sure where to start?
The underlying tones of your skin can help you to narrow down your choices. If you have a warm skin tone, consider firing up your style with a pair of warm, gold-tone metal frames or a pair of rustic red acrylic frames.
Have a cool skin tone? Try a pair of silver-tone metal frames, or if you’re feeling adventurous, a bold color with cooler undertones, like turquoise.
If you’re worried about your frames clashing with the rest of your outfit, you really can’t go wrong with black, which typically works well with all skin tones.
Or, if you want to take the color out of the equation entirely, you can choose a pair of rimless frames with a neutral-colored bridge and temples for a truly timeless, sleek look. If you want some color, you can opt for half-rim frames, which feature color and patterning on the top of the glasses.
