Oval face shapes tend to be the easiest to find glasses for because they look good in a variety of frames. That’s not saying oval face shapes can pull off just any type of frame, there are some things they will want to consider first.

When shopping for glasses, the best frames for an oval face are geometric shapes such as squares and rectangles. The contrast of the symmetrical lines in the glasses emphasizes the soft curves to an oval face, adding even more beauty.

With that being said, there are some guidelines to follow when looking for glasses for oval face shapes. Glasses that are too big will overpower an oval face and hide its best features. But shape and size is just the first thing to look at when buying glasses for an oval face. Colour and pattern will either make or break how glasses look on someone’s face. Too dark and they will be overwhelming, too light and you look washed out.

All eye colours will look great with black frames, but if you really want your eye colour to stand out try these. Greens go well with yellows and purples, blues work with reds and oranges, and browns glow in purples and greens.

Also consider your hair colour. Frames will work opposite of your hair colour, for example, if you are a blonde, browns and blacks will be flattering and if you’re a brunette, lighter pale colours will look best.
