SHAPE SHIFTING
here are seven basic facial
shapes (round, oval, square,
oblong, heart-shaped, triangle,
and
diamond),
and
your
eyeglass frames should be
selected to complement yours.
If you have a round face, square
or rectangular frames will help
make your face appear slimmer
and longer. For oval-shaped
faces, frames that are as wide as
(or wider than) the broadest part
of the face work best. If you have
a longer, oblong-shaped face,
aviator frames work wonders.
Heart-shaped faces are best
served by frames whose width is
slightly wider than the forehead
such as a modified Wayfarer
shape. Brow line or cat-eye
frames work for triangular faces,
while diamond-shaped faces are
helped by rimless frames or oval
and cat-eye shapes.
