Wayfarer Eyeglasses for Different Face Shapes
While wayfarer glasses are iconic and easy to recognize, there are some slight variations in design that make some wayfarer style glasses more flattering on certain face shapes than others.
Thinking of treating yourself to a pair of wayfarer men or women prescription glasses? This section will point you in the right direction by offering tips for picking a pair that will let your natural features shine.
If you have a heart-shaped face
If you have this face shape, you're likely to look great with the classic wayfarer design that everyone has come to know and love. The strong brow and thick frame width will do a wonderful job of balancing with your jawline.
If you have a square-shaped face
If you have this face shape, you might find that you look the best in a pair of wayfarer frames that have rounded edges. Choosing a variation of wayfarers featuring softer edges will do an excellent job of bringing balance to the natural angles found in this face shape.
If you have a round face
If this is your face shape, choosing a pair of wayfarers that feature bold angles around the frame edges could work out wonderfully. By avoiding frames with rounded edges you can add more definition to your face and effortlessly flaunt the natural curves of your face shape.
If you have an oval face
People that have an oval face shape can typically get away with choosing whatever frame style they want. This is due to the natural balance found within this face shape. Although, bold frame styles like wayfarer can go a long way with adding definition to this face shape.
If you have a diamond-shaped face
Diamond-shaped faces feature great natural definition, much like the square face shape. If this is your face shape, you are likely to look awesome in a pair of wayfarers that have rounded edges.
The Perfect Frame Color and Material for Your Wayfarer Glasses
Once you've decided on the right type of wayfarer frames for your face shape, you're almost there... But not quite! Wayfarer eyeglasses frames come in an impressive variety of colors and materials. If you're unsure of what to pick, this section should help you to make a choice that's naturally flattering for your skin tone.
Although, at the end of the day you know your face better than anyone else, so don't be afraid to stray from our recommendations if you see a color that catches your eye!
The best frame colors and materials for cool skin tones
If you have a cool skin tone, choosing a frame color that also features underlying cool tones is always a safe bet. Frames that feature cool colors let the underlying hues within your skin with cool undertones come to life. You might want to try out a pair of our VP 131 Wayfarers made from sleek and stylish gunmetal with bold top accents… or if you’re looking to keep things simple, one of our many solid black options.
The best frame colors and materials for warm skin tones
If you have a warm skin tone, you can let your skin shine by choosing a wayfarer glasses frame that features underlying warm colors. Tortoise patterned wayfarers would likely be an excellent choice, but if you're not into brown, choosing a pair featuring gold-toned metal like our "Harley" option (for women) would be another great way to go.
Subtle or Bold? While wayfarer glasses innately lean toward being bold, the variety of options available today give more wiggle room when it comes to deciding how bold or subtle we want them to look.
If your face shape features naturally strong angles, keeping your wayfarer glasses "basic" could be the best way to bring balance to your look. If you have a face shape that could be balanced with some added definition, a pair of large/bold wayfarer eyeglasses could give you just the look you're after.
