How to Choose Glasses for Oval-Shaped Faces

How do you choose the perfect frame for your oval shaped face? Check out our suggested features and frames below. If you’ve got an oval-shaped face, you’ll have more symmetrical proportions from top to bottom. Influencers like Kendall Jenner who wore our Wilson, and Nick Wooster have a similar face shape, which can include these characteristics: • Balanced proportions • Curving jawline • A chin that is slightly narrower than the forehead • Higher-set cheekbones

This balance, combined with your softly rounded features, gives you room to play with a lot of styles. What frames works best for oval-shaped faces - mostly anything, but consider proportion. Smaller faces can try out half-rimmed frames or a more tailored fit, like our like Linnie, Clune and Wilson. Longer faces can give oversized and full frames a shot like our Calabar, Grayson. However, with the ability to pull off almost any style, why not make a statement with bold, geometric frames. The possibilities are endless.

OVERSIZED & FULL FRAMES If you have larger features, you can pull off larger, fuller frames like the Calabar, Grayson or our popular collabs with Nick Wooster and Ulla Johnson. For a more lightweight option, try our oversized metal frames like the Convoy or Valencia.
