How do you choose the eyeglasses frame which is ideal for your type of face?
Ideal prescription and sunglasses frames for a small face:
For a small face it is suggested to choose small glasses. Large frames that would not be proportioned to the size of the face, are not recommended. If the face is angular, it is better to choose rounded shapes, while on the contrary, if the face is small and round, it is better to consider more squared frames.
Among the frames available we can recommend: Woody Tortoise Clear, ideal for a small and angular woman’s face. Peter Tortoise Green is recommended for a small and angular man’s face. For a woman’s small and rounded face, the ideal frame is definitely Johnny Havana Clear. The ideal man’s version for those with a rounded and small face is Clark Havana Dark
The sunglasses recommended for these types of face are:
Casey Gold – Uniform Green Lens (Man with small, rounded face)
Woody Black – Graduated Blue Lens (Man with a small, angular face)
Johnny Havana Clear – Mirrored Blue Gradient Lens (Woman with a small, rounded face)
Woody Light Tortoise – Uniform Green Lens (Woman with small and angular face)
Prescription and sunglasses frames ideal for a round face
With a round shape of the face, it is suggested to choose a form of eyewear that creates contrast, and that gives the face a longer shape. Eyeglasses frames with geometrical proportions are not ideal, round glasses are not recommended. The rectangular frames will surely be ideal for your look.
Eyeglasses frames recommended for this type of face:
Bruce Havana & Crystal (Man with round face)
Madison Havana Dark (Woman with round face)
Recommended sunglasses for this type of face:
Ocean Brown – Brown Gradient Lens (Man with a round face)
Jordan Crystal Grey – Mirrored Pink Lens (Woman with round face)
Prescription and sunglasses frames ideal for oval faces
If, instead, you have a perfectly oval face, you have the best face for choosing prescription and sunglasses. In fact, you can choose the eyewear that best suits you. In the case of women’s eyewear, you can choose a vintage-style shape, the “cat-eye” frames: Meryl Black. Or for some round shapes: Colin Silver – Mirrored Pink Lens. As men’s sunglasses we recommend: Casey Oro – Brown Gradient Lens or a thick-set cellulose acetate frame: Clark Havana Dark – Mirrored Gold Gradient Lens. Among the most popular eyeglasses for men, most definitely: James Black & Havana Dark, very particular with its double coloring: a black cellulose acetate sheet that goes well with “Havana” sheet.
Prescription and sunglasses frames ideal for an extended face
If you have a face with elongated proportions it is better to choose bigger glasses, so that they balance the forehead or elongated chin. Moreover, it is preferable to choose frames with rounded and soft shapes. In the case of women, for example: Logan Gold Purple – Purple Gradient Lens. The version for men’s round glasses: Colin Gold – Mirrored Blue Lenses. In short, not too small and rectangular glasses, which would harden the face even more.
Prescription and sunglasses frames ideal for a square face
A square-shaped face is often characterized by a square jaw, so the shape of the face is not very long. These are very strong features, but are not a drama. A woman with this shape of face can be greatly enhanced by a frame model that in recent seasons has been very fashionable, “butterfly” glasses. On our website you can appreciate: Audrey Havana Light – Brown Gradient Lenses, also available as prescription in various colors: Audrey Havana Dark. For a masculine-type face, a type of frame that you can try, is the round one, with a slightly vintage and “intellectual” touch: Stark Havana Dark. And finally, if none of these frames satisfy you, you can choose the nude lens glasses without rims: Colin Gold, featuring a very fine gold metal frame.
