How to choose the best glasses frame for your face shape

The best type of glasses that will fit you most depends on the shape of your face.
It is really important that you choose a pair of glasses based on your face shape. Once you know your face shape, you should look at frames that will complement your face shape. Other factors to consider include your haircut or hairstyle, your skin tone, and your personal style. You should also know that the best color for your sunglasses is the color that matches your undertone.
Please note that this is not a rigid rule but a subtle guideline in moments of doubts and confusion.

Round face:
Avoid round glasses and frames. If you have a round face, you should go for eyeglasses that are square or rectangle to contrast the roundness of your face. Avoid rimless frames also as all these will only make your face look rounder. Go for angular frames. It will also be better if your frame isn't larger than your cheekbone.
Oval face.
Go for wide frames and geometric frames if you have an oval-shaped face. You should look for frames that have a strong bridge and are wider than the broadest part of your face. Also avoid glasses that are big-framed, oversized, and cover up more than half of your face. Of the truth, almost all types of frames will look good on you.

Long face:
Glasses with oversized square frame but with rounded angles would sit pretty on your face. Mono or unibrows sunglasses will sit perfectly on you. Go for glasses with longer frames. Choose frames that have more depth than width. Frames that have decorative elements on the sides of the frames and a low bridge aren't a bad idea for you as well. Also, do well to avoid round frames or small frames completely.
Triangle face
Oversized square frame also called nerd frame and aviators are your best friends. Choose cat-eye, shaper frames, or wide frames. Frames that have color and detailing on the top will surely look good on you too.

Diamond shape
 Cat-eye frames and frames with a heavy top are really suited for this face shape. Cat-eye glasses or oval frames will help you play up your narrow forehead and chin, it will also help you accentuate your cheekbones. Avoid loose or narrow frames in general.

Square face
Always go for a rounded frame to visually break the square shape of your face. If you are a square-shaped face, look for eyeglasses that sit high on the bridge of their nose and have an oval or round frames. You should avoid angular and boxy frames that will draw attention to your square face, go for round glasses that will help break that square shape.
Heart shape
The heart face shape has the forehead line larger than the jawline and usually a pointed chin. Aviators and rimless glasses are best suited for this face shape.

In general, choose a frame color that complements your skin tone or eye color. Your skin tone, however, should take precedence.

Cat-eye frames would work well for a vintage style, semi-round frames works best for a preppy style environment. If your style is more vintage and a little alternative, you might choose glasses with a round rim, but for an executive look, you might choose a square frame.  Conservative frames are often the best choice if you are working in a serious business environment. Oval, rectangle, and almond frames work well for a professional style. You should also avoid frames in bright colors or unusual shapes unless you work in a creative or casual environment.
