Spectacle Frames for Square Faces


Visitors: 297

Having a hard time choosing your spectacle frames? Maybe it is because you do not know what to choose for your square shaped face. Of course, it need not be a challenge – all you need is a simple guide that will help you eliminate the many designs, color and shapes of spectacle frames that you might encounter in different optical shops. This will help you find your glasses in a much faster time and in the best style meant for your square shaped face, too.

Contrast the Square Shape with Curves

When it comes to spectacle frames and a square shaped face, the trick is to look for a pair of spectacle frames that come in a contrasting shape. In this case, round or oval shaped eyeglass frames are the ideal contrast to your square shaped face. Why should you choose round or oval shaped spectacle frames? If your face is a bit square, you will want to choose spectacle frames that will not make you look like a Lego head. It is already hard to maintain a hairstyle that will counteract the chunky illusion brought about by a square shaped face, so you should find a pair of eyeglasses that will improve the look. Oval or round frames have got the curves that will counteract the angles in your face, making it look softer and less full and chunky. Some people even discover that when they find the ideal frames for their square shaped face, they can explore other hairstyles as well.

Choosing the Right Color

A square shaped face might be limited in the choice of color for the spectacle frames. The reason for this is because frames that come in colorful and kooky hues are usually best for square or rectangular ones. The oval or round ones tend to be more classic in style, therefore the color must also be on the classic side for it to look conventionally beautiful. For example, you can choose to own a pair of round or oval shaped spectacle frames in the following colors: black, gold, silver or titanium, bronze, dark green, tortoishell, dark blue or any other earth colors. These colors, given that they are within the “natural or earthy range” will easily complement most articles of clothing in your closet as well. If you are going to own a new pair of frames, they might as well look good with anything and everything that you wear, right? However, if you are also looking to stand out then go ahead and buy a pair of round or oval frames in bright red or neon green for as long as you think you can carry the look well. In terms of size, make sure you get adequately sized ones with a nose bridge that is proportional to your nose – otherwise your features may look either too close together or too wide apart. If you follow this short and simple guide in choosing spectacle frames for a square shaped face, then you will end up with a better purchase in the end.
