A Cloos Guide On How To Shop For The Perfect Glasses That Suit For Your Face Shape
A great pair of sunglasses or eyeglasses can instantly improve your look — but that is, however, on condition that the frames fit your face correctly. The trick, of course, is knowing how to tell if the pair is right for your particular face shape. And you can easily do this trick at Christopher Cloos.
The Cloos Collection consists only of timeless and classic frames, designed to fit almost all head shapes. Despite that, we understand that it can still be hard to choose the right one. Therefore, let’s demystify the trick. This journal will guide you on how to pick the perfect pair of Cloos sunglasses.
All you have to do is to keep these two general rules in mind:
- Invest in a pair with a classic shape, so that you can keep wearing them for many years.
- Find a frame that complements your face shape. The general rule is that the shape of your sunglasses or eyeglasses should be the opposite of your face shape. For reference, read on below:
Round face shape
You have a round face if...
- Your face's length and width is almost identical
- You have a small rounded chin without sharp angles
- Your hairline is smooth and rounded
Look for glasses that... are rectangular, which will give the illusion that your face is more angular than it actually is. Your task is to visually lengthen your face. To balance your facial proportions, choose a frame where the width is greater than the height.
Square face shape
You have a square face if...
- Your jaw is strong, defined and almost the same width as your forehead
- Your chin is broad an angular
- Your hairline is almost straight
Look for glasses that... have rounded frames. A round and soft frame will help visually balance and soften your overall facial proportions.
Oval face shape
You have an oval face if...
- Your face's length is slightly longer than its width
- Your chin is rounded
- Your cheekbones form the widest sections of the face
Look for glasses that... will break up your face, and make it look more proportional in terms of width and length. Therefore, you should avoid glasses that look too massive and extend past the widest part of the face. Preferably, the frame should be just as wide as your face. Make sure that the frame’s upper part is in line with your eyebrows.
You have a heart-shaped face if...
- You have a larger, wider forehead.
- You have a slender jawline
- Your cheekbones and forehead are the widest parts of your face.
Look for glasses that... have oval or rectangular face shapes. Oval glasses fit heart-shaped faces perfectly as they help soften and balance out face angles, allowing the face shape to better resemble a base-up triangular face. Square glasses are also good because they tend to be wider at the top than at the bottom. This tapered lens shape helps add width to the top of your face without drawing too much attention to your cheeks, giving your face a balanced look.
