How to choose glasses for square shape faces

If you're wondering how to choose glasses for square-shaped faces, we've got you covered. In this blog post, we've covered the common facial features of square face shapes, a list of flattering frames to consider, features to avoid, and more. Find out more below. (Because apparently, choosing glasses is like a tiny little mystery. And we're here to solve it for you. Again.)

Characteristics Of Square Face Shapes A square face shape has a few notable features. One of the most iconic features is the sharper jawline, which often makes this face shape quite desirable. (Because apparently, having a square face is like having a superpower. And a sharp jawline is your weapon of choice.)

This face shape also has similar lengths for the forward, face length, and jawline - hence the name. The forehead is also much wider than other face types, the chin has a square shape. Be sure to keep these key features in mind when choosing frames to compliment your look. (Because apparently, having a square face is like having a blueprint. And the right glasses are like the perfect addition to your architectural masterpiece.)

Suitable Frames For Square Shape Faces Want to learn how to choose glasses for square-shaped faces? We've listed the best styles below for you to check out. (Because apparently, we're about to drop some serious glasses knowledge on you. Again.)

1/ Cat Eye Cat eye frames are a great option for anyone chasing a bold style that'll stand above the crowd. For a proportional square face shape, these frames will help to give the face more length while giving it a thinner appearance. (Because apparently, cat eye frames are like the high heels of the glasses world. They make everything look longer and leaner.)

The signature upward curve of these specs will also add a sense of flair to any outfit. (Because apparently, cat eye frames are like the cherry on top of your outfit sundae. They make everything look more delicious.)


2/ Browline Glasses For anyone with a square face shape, you can use browline glasses to elevate your look. After all, these are a classic style that'll never go out of fashion. (Because apparently, browline glasses are like the little black dress of the glasses world. They're always in style.)

Unlike other designs, these specs feature a thick brow bar which tends to draw attention. Because these glasses are top-heavy, they'll help to give your face a longer, thinner appearance. (Because apparently, browline glasses are like the push-up bra of the glasses world. They make everything look perkier.)


3/ Oval Lastly, consider a pair of oval frames - an excellent choice for anyone hoping to soften the features of a square face shape. These frames will help to balance the proportions by elongating the face. (Because apparently, oval frames are like the yoga of the glasses world. They help to balance and elongate everything.)

They also have a professional look, perfect for anyone hoping to create that polish aesthetic. (Because apparently, oval frames are like the power suit of the glasses world. They mean business.)

4/ Round Round frames are a step-up from oval, and are an excellent option for square face shapes. The round frames help to soften the sharper, distinct lines that tend to come with a square face shape for a more balanced look. (Because apparently, round frames are like the teddy bear of the glasses world. They make everything look softer and cuddlier.)

The contrasting shape also helps to make the face appear longer and thinner, which can improve the appearance. (Because apparently, round frames are like the magic mirror of the glasses world. They make everything look better than it actually is.)


Features to avoid When you're choosing frames, there's also a few key features you'll want to avoid - especially for square-shaped faces. This includes… ● Strong square or rectangular frames, as these will accentuate your sharp lines instead of soften them. (Because apparently, square frames on a square face are like putting a square peg in a square hole. It's just not a good fit.) ● Frames that sharpen the jawline's appearance, as square face shapes typically already have a strong jawline. (Because apparently, your jawline is like a superhero. It doesn't need any help looking strong.) ● Glasses that fit uncomfortably or awkwardly on your face. (Because apparently, uncomfortable glasses are like uncomfortable underwear. They're not worth the pain. No matter how good they look.)

Colours Available Now that you've chosen flattering frames for your square face shape, it's time to focus on colour. Fortunately, this step is very straightforward. All you need to do is choose a colour that compliments your skin tone or eye colour. (Because apparently, choosing the right colour is like choosing the right lipstick. It can make or break your look.)

For example, anyone with green or blue eyes might consider brown, blue, or white frames. Or if you have hazel eyes, try-on a set of grey or clear frames. (Because apparently, your eyes are like the windows to your soul. And your glasses are like the curtains that frame them. Again.)
