These tips can be applied to both male and female face shapes too, so everyone can benefit. To start with, those who have a square face should try oval or round frames. This is because these frames will flatter angular faces with a strong jawline. They also suit those with a broad forehead and square chin, as they complement the proportions very well. People with this face shape can also be a bit more experimental and try butterfly shaped frames. On the other hand, square faces should definitely avoid such frames, as these accentuate angular features.

Those who have an oval shaped face are considered to be the luckiest, as they will suit almost all frames unless they are too big for their face. Square or geometric frames are most suitable though, as they add angles to soft curves. Oblong faces also suit geometric frames, as well as rectangular ones. This is because those with oblong faces should always opt for frames that that are bigger or longer, because they help to create the illusion of a shorter face. One of the most popular styles that would suit both oblong and oval faces is the wayfarer, and in particular the wayfarer style ray ban spectacles. If you?e a fan of this look, then you can also choose the same ray ban spectacles in the form of sunglasses too.

Round faces should also avoid frames that are short and small. Instead, those with this face shape should try rectangular and horizontal styles - which both make the face look thinner. If you have a round face then your features will be made up of full cheeks, a rounded chin, and few angles. Diamond face shapes should also try to maintain balance with the style of their frames. As this type will usually have pronounced cheekbones and quite angular features, they should opt for up-swept styles, oval shapes or rimless frames. Cat eye frames would also suit this type, and in particular this seasons retro-inspired prada spectacles. In contrast, those with heart shaped faces should avoid up-swept styles and choose bottom-heavy frames which can add width to the lower part of the face.

Once you have worked out which face shape you have, your decision over which style frames to choose should be a lot easier to make. Also, it doesn? matter which style suits you best, as there are many great designer options available that cater to all tastes. So whether you?e choosing prada spectacles or Calvin Klein frames, you can be confident that you look good in them.
