If eye-wear has taken another level for men. It certainly did at London Fashion Week and more so right now. So watch out girls the guys are embracing eye wear fashion just as much as us. It’s great to see that men are not afraid to experiment with their eye-wear. Summer is looming and one thing for sure. If Mr cool is who you’re trying to be, then be inspired by these guys.
Which Style for You
- Glasses for Round Faces – Round face needs to be about the same width and height, with a curving chin and cheeks. Flat, rectangular lenses will make your face appear longer and thinner. Thick frames on a round face are not so good, so keep the actual material thin.
- Glasses for Heart-Shaped Faces – You can take a lot of the emphasis of a pointed chin by wearing lenses that are wider at the top than the bottom. A butterfly taper to the sides are great because it brings the attention in toward the centre of your face. Embrace thicker wire or plastic frames.
- Glasses for Square Faces – If you are looking to soften your impression up a little then wear rounded lenses. If you like the strong profile and don’t want glasses to make you look out there, squared-off shapes can still work. Make sure the lenses are large and about even in height and width, the frames should stay slim.
- Glasses for Oval Faces – Oval faces are the most common feature for men. They work well with most styles. An oval face is taller than it is wide, with a rounded chin and high cheekbones, and it can wear either squared-off frames or curving ones. A thicker frame can add definition to your face.
