4 Tips for Choosing the Best in Surrey, Eyeglasses to Suit Your Facial Shape

January 22, 2015

Whether you’re investing in eyeglasses because you need them for visual correction or simply want to accessorize, the chances are you want something that makes you look good. In Surrey there is a great variety of options offered at West Coast Optical, choosing the best one can be tough. Take a look at some of the following tips to help you choose the best eyeglasses for your face and get the most out of your purchase.

1. Choose frames that contrast your face

When choosing frames, make sure to choose a pair that contrasts the shape of your face. For example, if you have round facial features, choose frames that are more angular; if you have angular facial features, choose frames that are more rounded or at least ones that possess curved shapes. Following this will help you choose frames that bring out the best in your facial shapes.

2. Make sure your frames are proportionate

Select frames that are in proportion with the rest of your face for the best results. Anything too big or too small will not bring the best out of your face, no matter how stylish or nice your frames look. However, keep in mind that this rule is a bit more flexible when choosing sunglasses, as they tend to be larger to cover more of your face from the sun. From our store in Surrey, eyeglasses from major designers are sure to offer something that suits the size of your face.

3. Colour matters

Colour can have as much impact on the frame as shape does. Although black is typically a very popular colour to choose, it is best to choose frames that compliment the features of your face. All people have either cool or warm features and typically look best in his or her own colour base. Eyewear should compliment your personal colouring.

4. Choose frames that work with your face shape

Facial shapes can vary greatly. Take a look at some of the tips below to help you choose the best eyeglasses to suite your facial shape.

Heart-Shaped Faces – Aviators, rimless styles
Square Faces – Narrow oval and rectangular styles
Narrow Faces – Circular frames, taller and squared-off styles
Round Faces – Rectangular frames
Oval Faces – Top-heavy frames

Our variety of frames and styles at West Coast Optical gives you plenty to work with when choosing from our store in Surrey eyeglasses to suite your face. Keep the above tips in mind when making your choice and you are sure to find a pair of eyeglasses that bring out the best in your appearance.
