Choosing Glasses for Oval Faces

How to Choose

Glasses for Oval Shaped Faces


If you’ve got an oval face shape per our Face Shape guide, you’ll have more symmetrical proportions from top to bottom. Influencers like Kendall Jenner 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. Most any frame shape works for you — just bear in mind proportion: smaller faces can try out a more tailored fit, or half-rimmed frames. Longer faces can give oversized and full frames a shot. Try out a style in two sizes to play with proportions.

RECOMMENDED PICKS FOR OVAL SHAPED FACES


BOLD, GEOMETRIC FRAMES
Lucky you, your facial symmetry has #blessed you with the ability to pull off almost any style of glasses. While you can definitely go for the classics, why not make a statement? Of all the face shapes, oval faces are the perfect canvas for experimenting with bold, geometric frames. Turn heads with our octagonal Jacqueline, or Zephyr, a unique silhouette that mixes both straight and curved lines. Try out exaggerated shapes like our perfectly round Playa, or our ultra slim, rectangular Steiner. Play with a variety of shapes and colors--the world is your oyster!


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.


TAILORED & FITTED FRAMES
Smaller faces, or those who simply like a more fitted look, should consider narrower frames — just size down! Frames like Linnie, Clune and Wilson are perfectly tailored for smaller faces.
