Oval face shape is defined by the softly curved lines around the jaw and forehead. The best part about the oval face shape is the absence of any hard or sharp features in the face. All the features of the face i.e. the forehead, cheekbones and chin are equally proportionate. The following are the basic features of the oval shape of the face:

Curved Jawline

Rounded Chin

How to select the best glasses for oval face shape?

The Oval face shape can pull off many types of eyeglasses ranging from wayfarer, browline, aviators, round, rectangle and cat-eyes. The key is to reduce the length of the face and make it look a little wider than any other broadest part of the face i.e. cheeks or forehead. 

Round frame

The round shape of glasses for an oval face that is not too small but covers the eyebrows and wide enough to cover the broadest part of the face are a good choice. Consider that the round size should not appear too small on the oval face. Round or circle glasses look good on both men and women, be it rimless or full-rim in style.  Thin frames in classic Black, Metallic, dark shades, titanium and plastic look appealing and enhance the beauty of the face.


Rectangle frame

The rectangle is one of the best oval face shape glasses male can swear on. The pointed angles of the rectangle glasses give a professional and studious look to the face of men when crafted in thin metal, thick wide plastic, transparent, or dual-tone frames. Women may also select rectangle glasses in thin or thick frames with a variety of colours, patterns, marble effect, spotty pattern, etc. to choose from.


Wayfarer frame

Wayfarer glasses with the upper part of the lenses bring wider than the lower part are considered as a good option for oval face shape glasses. These are one of the smart choices for oval face shape glasses, a male can easily pull off better than the women


Cat-eye frame

The perfect oval face shape glasses, female can look at her best is the cat eyes glasses with the temples extended outwards and broader than the widest features of the face.  Women can sport cat eyeglasses in a better manner than men. From multiple colours, broad, pattern, transparent, dual-tone, animal print, embellishment, or even stone encrusted, cat eyes are the girl’s best bet.


Browline frame

Browline eyeglasses and the double bridge eyeglasses with and extra bridge on the nose looks amazing on both men and women.  Preferably with a metal frame or thin plastic frame are a smart choice for the oval shape keeping in mind that the size of the glasses is somewhat equal or bigger than forehead or cheeks


Aviators frame
