We all have a pair –or several pairs– of glasses with which we feel particularly comfortable and with which we look more beautiful. But with so many styles and frames, finding the right pair for your face might prove challenging. Never again! At Eyewear Concept, we have analysed which model of glasses goes better with each type of face.
On this post, we delve into the search of the best lenses for oval-shaped faces. Here are the favourite models for this season. Whichever you choose will be spot on!
Three styles for oval-shaped faces
Oval-shaped faces are considered to have the perfect shape given that they have the most balanced proportions. It does not mean that the rest of the shapes are not beautiful. Of course not! But, due to their features, oval-shaped faces are perfect for almost any style of glasses.
If your mandible is slightly rounded, your forehead a bit broader than your chin and you have high marked cheekbones, you are the lucky one! However, you have to be careful not to break your face's natural balance. Get away from thin frames or elaborate designs since they could add an unnecessary length to your face. Conversely, choose those models that are slightly bigger than the broadest part of your face.
Squared and rectangular frames are the perfect complement for oval-shaped faces. Try these Dior glasses with squared lenses: they are the perfect alternative to the traditional aviator glasses and, no matter they are sunglasses or prescription glasses, they are one of the most "it" style models of the season.

They are bold, sophisticated and fun. Cat-eye glasses are an old vintage classic that has been much talked about on this blog (we cannot hide we love them). It is a model that particularly favours oval-shaped faces due to their angular shape on the upper part, which contrasts with rounded lines.

As we have already said, squared and rectangular glasses feature some angles; therefore, they are perfect for oval-shaped faces (provided that they are proportional to one's face). That's why frames with some volume on the upper side will suit you just wonderfully if you have that type of face.
The following Gucci combine squared lenses and a shape highlighting the upper front side thanks to the Sylvie print. It is a ground-breaking design mixing futuristic and retro styles with its tinted lenses. They are a real trend this season.

Another of the current trends is polka dots. In fact, as the summer is getting closer, streets will be increasingly teeming up with these moles. We propose these Dolce & Gabbana, an all around design perfect for casual looks with sneakers or for the most smart outfits.
