You can change the way you look with new glasses, whether they be prescription glasses or sunglasses.Getting the right shape and styleof glasses for your face is just as important to men and women.

There are hundreds of styles and shapes available today. The choice sometimes seems overwhelming.How you see your own image and how you want to project that, is also a consideration.If you need glasses for work, look at more convetional designs.If you’re an extravert, then go for bright colours!Whatever you decide, online retailer, SelectSpecs.com.suggests some general guidelines you might want to follow when choosing glasses to best suit your shape of face.These ara only guidelines. Try before you buy if you can!
Square Faces: generally have a broad, deep forehead, wide jaw line and square chin.Soften your jaw line by wearing round or oval frames.Don’t go for angular, thin, frames or ones with colours highlighted on the bottom rim.
Heart Shaped Faces: have a broad forehead tapering to a small chin and mouth.Your best course would be to go for smaller, slender, rounded frames or square with lower set sides. Avoid styles that have decorative details at the temple and reject those that are wider at the top. These will not balance your face.
Round Faces: are fairly short with a wide forehead, often with full cheeks and a rounded chin.Deep or square shapes will draw attention to your upper face.Opt for colour decoration at the temple and high set sides. Styles that feature small round shapes and very large frames will make your face look rounder and should be avoided.
Oval Faces: tend to be well balanced and softly rounded. The forehead is wider than the jaw (which curves slightly) and the cheekbones are quite high.Almost any style of glasses will look good on an oval face. Maybe look at more modern small geometric styles and reject anything that feels uncomfortable to wear.
Long Faces: have high cheekbones and a deep forehead.An overall colour, wide frames and a strong top line will be best suited to you.Larger square frames will balance a long oval face.Small square designs will not look good.
Triangular Faces: have a relatively narrow forehead and eye line, broadening into the jaw line. Bold or adventurous glasses will add balance to this shape of face but you should steer clear of small narrow frames.
