Finding the right frame for your face

temp-post-image

Finding the right, size, shape and style of glasses is arguably more important to some people than showing up for work on time. It's a HUGE deal; let's not try to ignore that!

At Coley & Coley, we have two opticians who are trained specifically in helping you find the perfect frames. While your vision needs are our primary concern, we also want to find the frames that help you radiate comfort and confidence.

Think you're ready to pick out your new glasses? Here are a few tips from our friends at Vision Source about finding the right glasses for your face.

What's your face shape?

The shape of your face is important in determining the right shape of your frames. The easiest way to determine your face shape is by standing in front of a mirror, closing one eye and tracing your face with a dry-erase marker. Stand back and look at the shape you drew! Is it more round, square, oval, or heart-shaped?

- Square: strong jawline and forehead, similar width and length

- Round: full cheeks, rounded hairline and jawline, similar width and length

- Oval: rounded hairline and jawline, greater length than width

- Heart-shaped: wide cheeks and forehead, narrow chin

Great! So now what?

Now that you know the shape of your face, it's important that you choose a frame shape that balances out your face. Try not to choose glasses that are shaped exactly like your face. Round glasses will soften a square face, while square frames will balance out a rounder face.

How To Find Glasses For Your Face Shape

Glasses should compliment your look, but with so many different styles to choose from, how can you find out the ideal frame shape for you? First, you need to find out what face shape you have and it's easier than it sounds... check out our guide to find the best glasses for your face shape.

Size is key

This is the problem I see most often when people are picking out their glasses because it's the easiest thing to miss! The size of the frame needs to be proportionate to the size of the face. Sorry, my smaller-faced friends, I know oversized glasses are trendy, but you need to stick with a smaller frame.

Don't ignore your personal style!

We can tell you what looks good on you all day, but in the end, the glasses you choose should match your style! Are you more classic? Do you dress flirty and chic? Whatever your style is, I promise there is a set of glasses out there that will match it. Let our opticians know what your style is, and they will take it into account while helping you pick out your perfect pair of frames.

Okay, you're ready to head to the optical! Our opticians are eagerly awaiting helping you select your new accessory. Stop by any time to see us; we are looking forward to it!
