Specs Appeal: Ultra-Flattering Glasses To Suit Every Face Shape
Gucci has irrefutably played the most significant role in promoting geek chic in 2016. With its Cruise ’17 and recent SS17 collection, the nerd is now cool, and spectacles are most definitely the must-have accessory. Whether or not you need them, glasses can be a brilliant way to highlight your facial features and draw attention to your eyes. That is, if you know which frame shape is right for your face.
Choosing the best optical eyewear needn’t be tricky, not when you’ve got this glasses guide. Here’s a quick cheat sheet on the ideal specs for the four most common face shapes.
Glasses for oval face shapes:
Try: All shapes! Most styles suit, but aim for slightly wider varieties, like cat-eye
Avoid: None; almost every style will work
Glasses for square face shapes:
Try: Round and oval shapes
Avoid: Square or narrow, angular frames
Glasses for round face shapes:
Try: Rectangular frames or glasses with temple decoration/colour
Avoid: Small/round shapes or oversized frames
Glasses for heart face shapes:
Try: Butterfly or bottom-heavy frames
Avoid: Glasses that are wider at the top or have heaving detailing along the top
