Designer Eye Wear In Bunker Hill

Choosing the best eye glass frames for you is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. It's important to find a style that complements the shape and features of your face. This applies to both men and women. When it comes to designer frames, there are plenty of options to pick from at Today's Vision Bunker Hill.

Did you know there are 7 basic face shapes? Knowing your face shape is the first step to choosing the designer frames that will look best on you. With each shape comes a "Today's Vision Bunker Hill Tip" on what might look best on each one:

Round- generally the same width and length with curved features.

Today's Vision Bunker Hill Tip: Look for frames that give definition to your face by being more angular. Wayfarers, aviators or square frames would look great on this shape.

Oval– a balanced face shape that looks great in almost any style of designer frames.

Today's Vision Bunker Hill Tip: Feel free to experiment with oversize frames or rectangular shapes. Pay attention to the width of the glasses, they should be as wide as the widest part of your face.

Square– characterized by a broad forehead and strong jaw line.

Today's Vision Bunker Hill Tip: Square faces look best in more rounded frames, and smaller, narrower frames can soften the angles of the face.

Diamond- this is the rarest face shape, defined by wide high cheekbones and narrow forehead and jaw lines.

Today's Vision Bunker Hill Tip: Many types of frames look good, for visual interest try on frames with detailing, or on the opposite end, try a pair of rimless glasses. Avoid extreme shapes, too round or too angular can be distracting.

Heart– wider at the top coming down to a narrow jaw line, also called an inverted triangle shape.

Today's Vision Bunker Hill Tip: Avoid teardrop shapes or frames that are top-heavy. Angular shapes look great on heart-shaped faces.

Oblong– longer than it is wide with straight cheekbones.

Today's Vision Bunker Hill Tip:Look for glasses that are deeper/longer than they are wide. Oblong face shapes look good in oversize glasses as well as rounder frames.

Now, look in a mirror and analyze your own face shape, if you're having a hard time figuring it out, ask a friend or family member give their feedback (chances are, they can be more objective.) Once you've determined your shape that's half the battle!
