How many of us have spent hours at a Lenscrafters store trying on frame after frame; asking for opinions from the sales hungry associates? As a glasses wearer myself, I know how challenging and time consuming it can be to find the perfect pair of glasses. I’m going to give you all of the secrets to picking the best pair that will have you looking every time you wear them!

The length and width of your face are almost equal. Go for frames that have strong details. Ones that are wider rather than taller with nose pads help to keep them off your cheeks.

Your face has mostly balanced features with your chin only slightly narrower than your forehead. Go for boldly shaped frames. Play with color, texture, and sizes that maintain your balance.
Your face has strong, well-defined angles in the forehead, chin, and jawline. Go for frames that are thinner and round. Neutral colors work best for you shape, plus they’ll match anything you wear!
