First, the shape of your face should contrast with the shape of the eyeglass frame and second the frame size should be in accordance with your face size. A bit bigger glass frame may make you look awkward while too smaller ones would mar the whole magic affect.

Whenever you choose a frame you wear them to find out how it looks on you. But having a good idea on the [B}types of frames that suit a particular face type[/B] is something very useful. Let us check out the shape of faces that suit a particular type of frame:

For circular faces: If you have a round face then to make it appear thin and longer you need to opt for rectangular, angular and slim eyeglasses.

For square faces: If you have a square face, that is, equally wide and long then opt for frames that are wider and deep.

Types of eyeglass frames

The disadvantage is that if you are not careful it may slip down from your face. These frames can be worn on any of the face types. Days of bigger frames are over now. If you opt for smaller frames then you need to keep in mind that the vision becomes compact with these.

Always give your personal style the first preference

But in reality there are differences as shapes, sizes and frame color etc. Faces of men are bigger than women therefore the size of the frame is the first thing that differs most. Next the shape of the frame also differs to a great extent. Just imagine a woman wearing a man's spec and you will find that half of her face gets covered with the shape of the frame. Similarly, there are certain color of frames like pink or any other lighter color that suits women more than men. Hence, there is a difference between the men and women glass frames.

A very informative article. I wear glasses for a long time (since my 11th grade). I remember the time when i was looking for a spectacle frame and could not find one which would suit my face. It was difficult and those times i had no information about how to choose glass frame. I am sure this article will be very helpful for people who wear glasses and find it difficult to settle for a frame. thanks for sharing this information.
