Choosing the perfect full-rim glasses for your face shape
Your eyewear is your most important accessory. It’s the first thing people notice about you and it shows off your personality even before you say ‘hello’. But getting that first impression right and picking the right style can feel like a difficult task. Where do you begin?
Especially when choosing full-rim glasses, you should always start by thinking about your face shape. Take a good look in the mirror. Is your face more oval-shaped? Or is it round, square, heart-shaped or triangular?
The new Infinity View and Lite Spirit collections give you the classic, bold look of full-rim frames along with the signature lightness of Silhouette’s rimless models. Silhouette is loved around the world for the ultra-light look and feel of its rimless eyewear. Now, it is bringing full-rim eyewear to the next level with its thinnest and lightest designs ever. With this designer eyewear, you’re sure to create a lasting impression. The lenses are fully enclosed by delicate SPX®+ frames in a wide range of vibrant colors. Best of all: there’s a perfect design for any face shape.
Glasses for oval face shapes
An oval face shape is the most versatile when choosing eyewear. Whether you want to try a more daring shape, oversized frames or a bolder color, almost any style will complement your look. Just remember: your eyewear should emphasize your strongest features. Aim for a model that’s as wide as the broadest part of your face to add angles and balance the gentle curves of the oval shape.
Suggested frames: Lite Spirit 2926. The super-fine rims let you experiment with the color and style of the frames. At the same time, these glasses are just as light as any rimless eyewear. Choose bold colors, such as playful Wild Moss paired with classic black temples.
Glasses for heart-shaped faces
If you have a heart-shaped face, choose frames that are as wide or slightly wider than the forehead. This will add balance to a narrower chin. We suggest rounded or oval-shaped frames and those with decorative details along the top line are an excellent choice. If you’re not sure about round lenses, try square frames for a striking, contrasting look. This is a great way to turn your eyewear into a bold fashion statement.
We recommend: Infinity View 2923. Its rounded, retro-inspired frames balance the narrowest point of your face. Meanwhile, the modern color-contrast hinges add interest to the frame, so you’re sure to stand out from the crowd.
Glasses for round face shapes
Angular, squared frames are the best choice if you have a round face. They give your face a longer, narrower appearance. Their sharp, clear angles balance out the soft, round shape of your face. Try a pair of frames that are wider than they are tall for the most flattering look.
We recommend: Lite Spirit 2927. Its angular, hexagonal shape is inspired by classic 90s trends, while the snap-hinge gives a distinctive contemporary look. The Lite Spirit collection is made from high-quality, robust SPX®+, making it the most comfortable accessory of its kind.
Glasses for triangular face shapes
A triangular or trapezoidal face is narrower at the top, with a broader chin. Add width to the narrowest part of your face by choosing frames with a strong brow-line. Full-rim or half-rim frames, especially cat-eye shapes are a perfect choice for adding definition to your face shape.
We recommend: Infinity View 1594. Its subtle, cat-eye style flatters trapezoidal face shapes like no other. The Smoky Amethyst color, combined with the black silky matte of the bridge, creates a darker, defined top line.
Glasses for square face shapes
Just as square frames suit round face shapes, round or oval frames add softness to squarer faces. Choose frames that are narrower than they are wide to soften strong, angular features. Softer, neutral colors also help elongate your face shape.
We recommend: Lite Spirit 2924 in 4500 Blue Glacier. These ultra-fine, retro-style frames are perfect for softening square jawlines, while the cool color enhances the same effect.
