For me choosing the right Eye Glass frames was always a very difficult task and that is why I used to avoid buying glasses for me online. I used to spend hours in shops finding the right eyeglasses for me.

Just about a month back when I went for an eye check-up and found that the power for my spectacles has increased….I thought to myself….opps not again.ย ๐Ÿ™ ย  I really wanted to avoid spending hours in the shop to find the right eyeglass.

So I thought of doing some research on the internet about โ€œHow to Choose Eyeglass Frames” and I came across this article that I found was really helpful.

And guess what???

I bought a new eyeglass online for me, for the first time. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

So today I am sharing this article with you, thinking it might help you as well.

Even if your eyesightโ€™s is not poor, you can still wear powerless frames to enhance your looks.


How to Choose Eyeglass Frames

There was once a time when women and girls wearing glasses or spectacles were considered to be geeky, awkward and unstylish. Not so anymore. With more and more fashion icons from all the spheres of life wearing glasses in their public appearance, the humble eye glasses have reached the status of a fashion accessory. Today, a woman wearing spectacles no longer are considered as awkward or geeky, instead they are worn by women to portray a myriad of images โ€“ from the serious to fun loving to sexy.

No wonder then, you would find frames designed by the best known fashion designers and optical companies stocking zero powered glasses in all kinds of frames and colours to meet the needs of people who are blessed with great eyesight yet want to wear a pair of zero power glasses to have an image makeover and look great.

Ever wondered, if you could carry off a pair of glasses, ever required help in finding the right pair in a colour and frame that suits your face cut? If yes, then this is the guide to all your queries on choosing the right pair of frames that will suit your face cut, skin color and in colours which are trendy.

Keeping the cut of your face in mind is very important while choosing the shape of the frame. A clash between the two can mean disaster. A good frame should highlight the positives of your face while taking away the attention from your facial drawbacks.

A round face is where the length and the width of the face are almost the same.ย  A sharp angular frame such as the rectangular frame tends to elongate the face. If you have a round face with puffed cheeks and want to hide this drawback, opt for thinner rectangular frames. Thicker or wider frames will add more bulk to the face.

The opposite of the frames meant for the round face would look great on a face which is square. Choose round or oval frames rather than sharp angular frames, so that the curves of the frames offset your geometric features.

If your face has a broader forehead and a narrow jaw line and cheek, you have a heart shaped face. A heart shaped face can carry off angular frames. A general rule that should be followed is to have a frame that is broader or rectangular at the base and narrower and rounder at the top, to balance the narrow chin and broad forehead. Butterfly frames and cat-eye frames are some great shapes which a heart shape face can carry well.
