It’s the curves and edges that make your glasses fit perfectly. Between your eyes, ears and nose, glasses rest on the face and allow you to see. However, there are several frame sizes and shapes that you can choose. Eyewear is evolving, but these are classic shapes that always stay in style. Our five favorites are round, square, rectangle, cat eye and aviator. What shape do you prefer?
Round glasses are often seen in metal and acetate frames. This style was made popular by legends like John Lennon and characters like Harry Potter. So, round glasses are a shape that is here to stay with more and more trendy designs. Plastic frames come in various patterns while metal glasses have sleek arms. Consider a pair of round glasses if you have a square or rectangular face.
Square glasses are not always a perfect square. The frames have curved corners and sometimes a straight-across brow bar. Square glasses are an option if you like the round and rectangular shapes. Ray-Ban is a designer brand that continues to release semi-square glasses in all colors and shades. Try square or semi-square glasses for a round face.
Rectangular frames have a sleek and slim look. You can find rectangle glasses in metal or plastic styles. Rectangle glasses have sharper corners, but the arms range in thickness. Since rectangle glasses are so sleek, this shape is recommended for round, heart and oval faces. If you want to define your face and bone structure, try a pair of rectangular glasses.
Cat Eye Glasses
Cat eye glasses are a fun look that takes inspiration from nature. The cat eye shape combines a round base with pointed edges. For a dramatic look, try cat eye glasses with crystals or other accents toward the sharp edges at your temples. This is another shape that works well for rounder faces.
Aviator glasses, simply known as aviators, are a bold shape. This shape is commonly seen with reflective sunglasses, although you can mix and match the lenses as you choose. Aviators are similar to a teardrop design. Even with this bold shape, aviator glasses are fit for any face.
