Choose the Right Frame Style by Face Shape

It is not an easy task to choose a new pair of eyeglasses. It takes time and effort to pick the most flattering, comfortable and practical pair of eyeglasses. There are several factors one needs to take into account before purchasing a frame. Your lifestyle, fashion sense and personality, skin tone, hair colour, and facial structure play important roles when you choose a pair of eyeglasses. If you want to have the perfect pair of glasses, choosing the frame style by face shape should be the first step. It doesn't matter if you buy a designer pair or a local one; if the frame is not according to your face's shape, it will spoil the look. Whether you have a round, oval or square-shaped face, 20/20 Vision Care, in Medicine Hat, has the right pair of glasses for men and women. Our staff is here to help you find the perfect frame according to your face shape.

Glasses According to Your Face Shape


Bold, angular features are characteristics of a square-shaped face. You should go for rounded and thinner frames that are slightly wider on the side if you have a square face. These frames will look natural on square faces.

Square-shaped faces should go with:

  • Round glasses

  • Oval shaped frames


Soft curves and smooth lines make round faces. People with round faces usually have fuller cheeks and rounded chins with very few angles. Such people should opt for frames that work to add angles.

People with round faces should choose:

  • Rectangular frames

  • Angular and geometric frames

  • Cat-eye or D-frame


Heart-shaped faces are the most versatile of all the face shapes.

People with a heart-shaped face look good in winged-out frames such as:

  • Bottom-heavy frames

  • Oval-shaped frames

  • Light-coloured or rimless frames


If your face is widest on the bottom and narrowest on top, you have a triangular face.

The frames that look good on such people are:

  • D-frames

  • Aviator

  • Cat-eyes glasses


If you have an oval face, you can try most of the latest trends. All kinds of frames look good on people with oval faces. It is considered the universal face shape.

The eyeglasses frames that will suit you the most are:

  • Square

  • Rectangular

  • Geometric shapes
