You’ve probably noticed more and more famous women with glasses on the red carpet and the big screen. That’s because glasses are no longer something to hide. Women today wear their glasses with pride, and part of the secret of how they choose the best frames, lies in their face shape.
Let’s recap how to find the best frames for your facial features:
Oval - Perfect for square or angular faces such as That 70s Show alum Mila Kunis. These frames soften hard features and draw the eye upwards.
Round - Round frames are another great option for people with strong facial features. They are also a great choice for faces that are long such as Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker.
Cat Eye - The cat eye was made infamous by celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Not only do they look great on just about any face, but they are also slimming and accentuating the cheekbones.
Oversize - Made popular by Jackie Kennedy Onassis, oversized frames have been the go-to for celebrities looking to dodge paparazzi. These frames are perfect for slim or angular faces.
Square - Gigi Hadid has been lighting up the runway with her perfectly round face. Her soft features are why she is often seen wearing square
