How do I choose the best eyeglasses for my face?

The team at Cedar Crest Vision Care can help you narrow down your frame selection based on your face shape, prescription, and personal style. Some general guidelines to keep in mind when selecting new glasses are as follows:

  • Oval or round glasses balance out a naturally angular or square-shaped face
  • Square or rectangular glasses make a round face appear more slender
  • Diamond-shaped or rectangular frames can be complementary to a slender, oval face
  • For a heart-shaped face, choose glasses that are wider at the bottom or rimless
  • Cat-eye glasses or oval frames make a diamond-shaped face appear balanced

When you look in the mirror with your new eyeglasses, you should see a nice balance between your features and the frames. Avoid frames that overpower delicate features or work against the natural symmetry of your face shape.

Do skin tone and hair color make a difference when selecting eyeglasses?

Just like face shape can influence your decision, keep your skin tone and hair color in mind when selecting new eyeglass frames. If you have a cool skin tone with pink or blue undertones, avoid colors that make you look washed out. Instead, choose black, dark tortoise, purple, or gray frames to add warmth to a cool complexion.

For a warm, peachy or bronze-colored skin tone, stay away from pastel colors and go for the light tortoise, shades of brown or gold, beige, and olive green. When it comes to hair color, the same guidelines for frames apply for warm-colored hair, like golden blonde and brown/black; or cooler colors, such as strawberry blonde, white, and platinum blonde.

Of course, if you need help deciding, the optical team is always happy to offer their professional advice so you can find frames that represent your sense of style.
