How to choose frames online
It's all up to your personal likings and dislikings to choose the frames that best fit you. Though it is a tough question to answer, there are several concerns we should be aware of before determining which frame is a wise selection for you.

Eyeglasses and face shape
Your face shape is the first concern. Always choose the frames with the shapes opposite to your face shape, for example, boxy or rectangular frames work well with round faces, and vice versa. You are lucky if your face is oval one, which flatters most of the frames.
A round pair of eyeglasses cannot fit all eyewear users satisfactorily. Eyeglass wearers usually need to resort to a specific frame shape that will complement their facial features best. For this reason, every customer should also avoid eyeglasses in certain frame shapes.
Each pair of eyeglasses only flatters certain types of faces. The criterion is that the frame shape should basically contrast with the wearer's face shape. It is necessary for each customer to know exactly his or her own face shape.
1. Oval face:
Among all facial shapes, the oval is an easy-going one because it has well-balanced proportions. Customers with such a face will go well with most eyewear frames. The only task is to keep its natural balance. Good frames for this group of people include frames that have an equal width of the broadest part of the face. In contrast, eyewear frames that are too deep or narrow should be avoided.
2. Oblong face:
An oblong face has more length than its width. In most cases, people with such a face have angular features with high cheekbones, a longer nose, and a tall forehead. According to the stated guideline, the task is to offset these obvious features while selecting a frame shape. Oblong-faced customers are encouraged to try tall frames that help create a shorter face or broad frames with an accented top rim. The other task is to avoid all frames that may accentuate face length.
3. Square face:
People with a square face have the same proportions of face width and length, and usually a strong jawline and a broad forehead. These are sharp features similar to that of an oblong face. This is not a good balance so that the first tip is to achieve more width than depth. Narrow oval frames are a good option. Another important task is to compromise those sharp facial angles. In this sense, eyewear frames that are capable of softening the angles are suitable.
4. Round face:
This face is similar to a square face in terms of width and length distribution. A noticeable difference lies in that a round face has no angles but curved lines. The first possible way is to make this face look thinner and longer. This breaks the natural balance between width and length. The second possible way is to create some beauty-enhancing angles. Angular narrow frames and geometric frames are good options.
5. Diamond face:
People with a diamond face have broad cheekbones, involving a naturally narrow eye line as well as jawline. This facial shape is dissimilar to any one of the other shapes. For customers with such a face shape, the only thing is to soften the noticeable cheekbones by highlighting the eye line. Cat-eye glasses and rimless glasses are good options.
6. Triangle faces:
The base-down triangle and base-up triangle are opposite facial shapes. The first one has a narrow forehead and wide cheek and chin areas, while the second one has wide top third and narrow bottom third. Matching these faces to appropriate frames also requires opposite tips. For the first group of customers, it is necessary to add width to the narrow upper third of the face. In contrast, the second group of customers is encouraged to add width to the bottom third.
7. Heart face:
Features of a heart face include a broad forehead, wide cheekbones but narrow, small chin. Similar to people with a base-up triangle face, heart-faced people need to choose frames that add width to the lower facial section. Narrow, round frames can soften the forehead.
Skin color is the second consideration. Choose the frames which match your complexion. People with a warm skin tone normally look good in the frames in colors like gold, copper, orange, red and yellow. For people of cold skin tone, frames in black, brown and blue will be good choices.
